      Can a trigger script run without human interaction at all?

      Post

      Here is what I am looking to accomplish. My filemaker database is connected through PHP to an external source, users utilize the external application but the results are sent to and stored on my filemaker server database. So records are currently created independant of a Filemaker Pro account being opened.

      Is it possible to trigger a script when a record is created on the server without having to click a button. 

      Here is what it would look like: 

      1. User uses external application with results populating filemaker server database via PHP
      2. Filemaker recognizes that a new record has been entered and triggers a script (send an email, fill out a field on another layout, etc.)

      Step one exists, is step two possibe? Thanks for everyones help!
