      Automatic record cleansing

      Post

      Hi there I am trying to find out if there is a quick way from inside Filemaker to email records to recipients whereby recipients are invited to update their information afterwhich they simply email it back and the database automaticaly updates? Does anyone know if this kind of functionality exists with Filemaker or if not any alternative means to achieve a similar result?

          It would be easier to email the recipient a hyperlink that they can use to open the database in their web browser and then find and update their info. This, of course, requires publishing your database to the web to support this function.

          With the emailing results back, it is possible in theory, but I think you'd have lots of issues getting the data emailed back in a predictable format that can then be imported into FileMaker on an automated basis.
