Lunch & Learn Lowdown

For those who enjoyed content from In a Nutshell, our YouTube channel, during the month of March, additional servings are on their way each week in April. As in previous months, we are bringing you tutorials on Claris products and news about those same products. As always, our goal is to deliver this information in a concise and succinct manner. Here is a quick summary of the learning opportunities coming to a computer near you in the coming weeks.

The first Wednesday evening of April brings the monthly meeting of FMburgh, the Pittsburgh FileMaker Developer Group. The agenda for the evening includes a roundtable discussion centered around the topic FileMaker Forensics Investigations. With the Script Debugger and the Data Viewer, FileMaker developers have two handy tools at their disposal for finding a problem in a script or calculation. However, problems with a FileMaker solution are not limited to just those two areas. We will discuss the tips and tricks that have helped us figure out what is really going on when issues arise. If you are unable to join us live on April 7 at 7:00 PM EDT, the meeting recording will be made available within a few days. To register for the virtual event, please click here to sign up.

On a rare Tuesday departure from our regular schedule, we present our Lunch & Learn: Appetizer at noon on April 13. As a rule, people are continually searching for a better tool to get their job done so we want to highlight and demonstrate the many advantages of turning to the Claris FileMaker low-code platform. In this shorter, bite-sized webinar, we review the Claris FileMaker Pro 19.2.2 enhancements to the preview of the FileMaker Pro quick start experience for creating custom apps. Click here to sample the Appetizer and add it to your calendar.

The great taste keeps coming the following week as we move back to our normal Wednesday time slot with the Lunch & Learn: Entrée. In this webinar for current FileMaker users seeking a better understanding of the platform, we focus on the Page Setup and Print dialog boxes and the various options available when printing reports and other documents. Click here to select the featured Entrée of the day and add a reminder to your calendar for April 21.

On the last Wednesday of April, we present Lunch & Learn: Á La Carte. This is an open table webinar where we serve solutions to your FileMaker problems. The goal is to help intermediate developers improve their skills by diving deep into the topic of the day. If you have a Claris FileMaker question that needs answered, please submit it via our online form at You may see the response featured in a future Lunch & Learn: Á La Carte presentation. Click here to order from our Á La Carte menu and add a reminder to your calendar.
