    Hey, Mr. James! Thanks SO much for your “FileMaker Go Synchronization and Version Management Techniques” webinar and for making the supporting materials available. ❦

  8. You managed to explain something intricate in a simple fashion. THANK YOU!
    I may not need to use the sync methodology right away, but now I know where to turn. This is an important subject for FMGo developers

    I agree, it was excellent.

    Thanks, great Webinar. I’m using FileMaker Pro and I’m looking foward to use FM Go. Only one question, is there possible to print invoices from the IPhone or IPad?

    Thanks, Best Regards from PR

    James, thanks for a very interesting Webinar. The version update file is amazing and makes that process easy. However, I think we are all being made to jump through unnecessary hoops by not being able to import into FMGo files directly. Mobile users need to be able to easily download subsets of data to take on the road. Until that can happen the whole process will be too hard for the end users.

    • James Wesolowski says:

      Thanks, the update feature is very cool, and it can be done with a single of multi-file solution. In our case, we did not want the end user to try to import anything directly (I assume that by this you mean the IMPORT command). The work is all on the developer. For the end user, particularly at the client in question, it is a simple authenticate and download/upload process – one dialog and two pretty buttons. The solution checks automatically for the right version, whether data needs to be synched, whether there is new data to send to the iOS device, whether there was an error, and tell the user what to do at every turn. We had the end users up and running in 5 minutes at most, and in some cases, they figured it out on their own. Of course, a lot of planning went into workflow and UI design, and that makes all the difference to the end user. One we figured it out, the FileMaker scripting is fairly straightforward.

  14. Hallo James,

  17. Tim Anderson says:

    Thanks James, interesting and useful techniques

  18. David Galson says:

    I’ve found with the new iPhone 4, and iCloud in particular, that during FM Go sessions, there can be significant delay in getting a response from the device while entering text, or otherwise modifying fields. I needed to deactivate icloud and certainly turn off the sync using cell feature before the latency in response went away.

    • James Wesolowski says:

      Personally, I have not tried FM Go while iCould is running. Go seems to work as expected with iOS 5, and I would imagine that future versions will address compatibility with iCloud and other new iOS features.
