This course is designed for FileMaker users with little or no scripting experience who wish to automate their databases and capture and control user actions within a robust solution. Participants will create, edit, save and run scripts to automate repetitive actions and to perform processes that are difficult for users to perform manually. Various types of script triggers will be explored and students will create complex scripts with multiple steps and conditions using many different examples. Participants will learn to have scripts run automatically on start up and when closing a database and to trigger scripts automatically through user actions. Debugging and error handling strategies will also be reviewed. Best practices will be discussed throughout the course and resources for further study will be provided. The benefits of FileMaker Pro Advanced will be reviewed briefly.
