What do you know now that you wish you knew then?

I am new to FileMaker, climbing the learning curve. I‘m not a pro, but I have some experience in databases and am building a new app to manage my projects, contacts, tasks, notes and documents in a business setting. Fairly standard stuff to all of you.


Occasionally I have one of those ”doh” moments where I realize that something could have been so much easier if I had only known...


It struck me that all of you pros have probably done the same thing. I thought it would make an interesting discussion thread. What do you know now that you wish you knew when you were starting with FMP? Is there a function, a technique, a trick, some great training materials?


Or to put it another way, if you knew you were going to have amnesia tomorrow and had to start learning FMP again, what advice would you email to yourself today?
