Designing a multi-user database


     So far in my filemaker "career" I have only needed to design my databases with me in mind. I want to start making databases that can be logged into by multiple users. Can anyone give me any tips, or point me to a selection of resources, with this in mind.

     I'm not talking about how to host or share the database, although i might need help with that down the track. I'm talking particularly about design tips and tricks in designing a multi-user database in filemaker. For eg. how to manage mutiple user accounts, in terms of logging in, capturing preferences, security, global fields, administration. I know in general how these things work, but I want to know at the start what the best or better structure/design tips there are out there. 

     Thanks in advance.
