FileMaker does not natively contain this ability on its own... and normally it would take a Plugin... to get the ability to have one client start a script... on another client. BUT... this amazing use of the OnRecordLoad script trigger opens the door to endless possibilities, as you can perform scripts on a client without a Plugin. It’s a bit of a hack... but it works... and it’s pretty amazing.
Thanks to ClickWorks, in Belgium, for building a free demo file called Client to Client that allows you to message another client from within FileMaker! Watch the video for a quick brain dump!
