Thank you for joining MSN Media and FM academy for the webinar titled RecentRecords in FileMaker 14. We apologize for the audio issues we had at the beginning and end of the live webinar. Fortunately, the video below has none of the audio issues.

This webinar focused on:

FileMaker provides many excellent tools for searching and finding records within a solution. RecentRecords takes it to the next level.  Much like searching Google for results, or using a web history to find a site that you’ve recently visited, implementation of RecentRecords into your FileMaker solution will streamline your searches and navigation, simplifying daily tasks and bring user-specific lists of recently-viewed records on the home layout. It’s simple to implement, and requires: a triggered script, one table with just a few fields, and a portal to display records.

During this webinar you learned:

  • The elements of single-field searches, including: pre-process, iterate, rank and display.
  • Relevance rank system (as users search for records, relevant metadata is stored. The next time a similar search is done, the Relevance table is searched and the related record is displayed).
  • Adding RecentRecords in your solution, thus allowing each user to see a list of recently viewed records and navigate to them with a single click.
  • How implementing these steps will improve your business.

Who Should Attend?

  • FileMaker Developers and Users
  • Project Managers
  • Business Owners/Department Managers
