Adding tables and fields to a FileMaker custom app to capture and store data is only part of the solution. Building intuitive layouts that quickly and clearly convey the information to the users is another important skill for FileMaker developers and power users to possess. It improves the user experience in the areas of navigation, data entry, and reporting to name just a few. The FileMaker Deep Dive: Layouts training class focuses on FileMaker’s design surface tools and the understanding needed to design and manage the layouts in your FileMaker solution.
If you desire to take your FileMaker reporting skills to the next level, make plans to participate in one or both days of this two-day training event, led by instructors from Cross IT and ProFile Developers. On Tuesday, February 25, Day 1 begins with basic layout building techniques for those users newer to FileMaker.
