I am new to FileMaker and am trying to make some sort of dashboard. I have a table called Shiping and I have fields in the table called Customer, Order Status, and Date Due. What I am trying to do is make a list pop up on another layout that sorts and filters through all the records for anything with and Order Status of "Needs Drawings." Is there a way to do this?
Please research "portals" in FileMaker Help and any training materials you might have.
You can set up a portal, possibly a filtered portal, that can list the records you want to see listed.
You could also set up a list or table view layout and perform a find for those records, but this is unlikely to work for a typical "Dashboard" type layout design.
