There's a vocal segment of the professional FileMaker developer community that frequently asks for features they are familiar with from developing software with other tools and environments — often features that would baffle the more common users with no programming experience outside of FileMaker or are difficult to explain (i.e., sell) to the non-IT business managers who often make software purchase decisions. Can the product managers explain their general strategy for managing the tension between requests for features for pro developers (like the ExecuteSQL() function) with more visible, more approachable features (like charts)?
