Updates include:

  • Mobility: The addition of animations and transitions with scripts provide visual cues to help orient users as they navigate through their custom apps on the FileMaker Go app. Enhanced signature capture for the FileMaker Go app allows users to sign documents on iPad and iPhone just as they would on a paper form.
  • Integration: Easily exchange data with other web services and applications using enhanced cURL options and predefined JSON functions in FileMaker Pro.
  • Development: The new Layout Objects window provides a hierarchical list of all objects in a layout. This makes it easy to make changes to an object without having to ungroup the entire set of objects.
  • Scalability: Custom apps accessed via FileMaker WebDirect now can be used by up to 500 users simultaneously, making it easier to share data with an entire team.
  • Security: Simplified credential management with OAuth 2.0 using third-party authentication providers improves security and safety of custom apps. Existing Amazon, Google or Microsoft Azure account credentials now can be used to log into FileMaker-based custom apps.

Ann Monroe, vice president of worldwide marketing, FileMaker, Inc., said: Today’s leaders empower their teams with the tools they need to quickly adapt as their needs change. The FileMaker 16 Platform builds on our track record of success, providing customers with the latest features, enabling them to create great apps that work across iPad, iPhone, Windows, Mac and the web.”

Don Kenchel, founder, Lefthand Thinking, said:

“Being able to integrate with Tableau through FileMaker 16 has really opened doors for us to expand our application development in the medical and real estate industries. FileMaker provides us with a way to easily and quickly put together custom apps to fit our client’s unique needs with little maintenance required. In fact, it’s allowed us to eliminate some very costly outside vendors and instead use FileMaker to meet more of their needs. With apps created specifically for iPad devices, my clients are able to cut the cord, and are seeing increased efficiency by being able to do more work from the field.”

Claus Lavendt, founder, DataManix, said:

“Location monitoring is one of my favorites features, as we are now able to provide smart apps that react to the surroundings. Now you can perform an action when a mobile device, such as an iPad, detects a nearby, predefined iBeacon. Or, automatically pull up location-based information when entering a predefined geofence. This feature will help the user focus even more on their tasks.”

Support our partner 24U in the Green-Tech Pioneers -competition!

Our FileMaker Business Alliance partner 24U is participating in a competition  called “Green-Tech Pioneers” and we would ask you to help to support their project.

It is a project of two brothers from Netherlands who with the cooperation of 24U using the FileMaker platform have created the world’s first mobile system for automated planting.

It is a system that is able to fully automate the process of plant growing and you don’t need more than a few light “greenhouse” tubes and your own ideal recipe for growing the best tomatoes, paprikas or some exotic spices. You can just seed, connect a fertilizer tank, set up the parameters, and then you just watch your smart phone and see how your plants are growing up in any room, building, greenhouse, o wherever else depending on what and how much of that you want to grow. Even in your cellar or on Mars (a few years later).

Thanks to this system, you can cultivate anything in any place in the world. Tomatoes grown in desert, strawberries in a cellar? This system will make it reality. The plants grow in cells for which you simply set up all the environmental conditions and growth processes. Light amounts necessary for the growth, temperature, how often it should be watered and fertilized. You make the perfect conditions and your unique growing recipe and then just watch how the work gets done.

Planting will be made not only more efficient and cheaper but also more ecological with this system. At the time when population is growing faster than food production, climate changes harm food production and make it more expensive, mass usage of pesticides damages nature, harms our health, and kills bees, and the need to deliver food thousands of kilometers far pollutes our air, being able to grow healthy and nutritious groceries is invaluable. Is it possible to not support such project?

You can find more information about this way of planting, called City Farming, at http://24usw.com/gpcf

You can support the project at http://24usw.com/gpvt – vote by clicking on the “Stem” button. When you are finished with your voting, the button “Stem” will disappear. 24U has also prepared a quick voting guide for you, which you can find at http://24usw.com/gpgd

Please don’t hesitate, you can vote only till the Sunday, the 10th of December!
