"12 Days of FileMaker 12" - Week 3


FM Academy, a collaboration of leading FileMaker development and training companies, is proud to announce the 12 Days of FileMaker 12 webinar series. Each Tuesday and Thursday for six weeks the Academy will host a 60-minute webinar on a new feature of the FileMaker 12 product line. This week features:



Webinar 5: Quick Table View. Table View might just be one of the least appreciated features in the FileMaker Pro product line. True, it hardly changed in versions 7 through 9, and the changes in 10 were welcome, but fairly simple. All that changed in 11 with the addition of two bold new features which allow a developer to quickly create a table and perform summary analyses, all without ever leaving the comfort of browse mode. FileMaker 12 brings welcome refinements to this important family of features, and makes Table View a tool worthy of a fresh look. Join our presenter as he demonstrates the practical uses of Table View and showcases changes to it in FileMaker 12.


Mark Richman is the presenter. He is the CEO and founder of Skeleton Key, a FileMaker Business Alliance Platinum level member based in St. Louis, Missouri. He leads a team of Certified Developers and an IT consulting division in providing multi-platform development and technology consulting for customers in a broad array of markets.  He is certified in FileMaker versions 8 through 11 and is an Authorized FileMaker Trainer. When Mark isn’t running his company, or wrestling with his four sons, you can find him writing TechNet articles for FileMaker Inc., speaking at the FileMaker Developer’s Conference or evangelizing about how to get the best performance out of your FileMaker Pro application..



Webinar 6: Container Field Enhancements. FileMaker Pro 12 brings a new storage method for container fields. This webinar will introduce both users and developers to the new storage method from a practical usage point of view as well as from a technical point of view. Topics Include: The new file-> manage -> container menu option, thumbnail generation, storage tab updates including secure storage, remote container data transfer, inspection options, insert file script step, converting older databases to use the new storage methods.
