FileMaker Deep Dive: Scripting 2019

Automating tasks in a FileMaker solution is an essential component of a fully functional system. It improves the user experience in the areas of navigation, data entry, data validation, and reporting to name just a few. The FileMaker Deep Dive: Scripting training class focuses on FileMaker’s Script Workspace and the knowledge and skills needed to automate a wide range of tasks.

If you desire to take your FileMaker script writing 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, September 24, Day 1  begins with basic scripting techniques for those users new to the FileMaker Script Workspace. On Wednesday, September 25, Day 2 focuses on techniques for those developers that need next level skills to deliver the needed automation to their users.

The initial topics of study for each day are listed below. Please note that the training sessions are not limited to only these areas. A pre-workshop survey will be sent to each attendee to help the trainers tailor each session and maximize the return on investment.

  1. Layout navigation
