March 2023 Meeting of FMburgh

The next meeting of FMburgh, the Pittsburgh FileMaker Developer Group, takes place on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at 7:00 PM EST. Due to a scheduling conflict at our venue, this meeting has transitioned from a hybrid gathering to an online-only meeting. We hope you can join us virtually on the first Wednesday of March.

With each update, Claris International provides new tools and features in the Claris FileMaker platform. Unfortunately, we rarely have time to devote to learning the “new stuff” because we’re busy supporting existing solutions for in-house users or external clients.

To remedy this problem, we are going to try something that has never been done before at an FMburgh meeting. In a combination show-n-tell and roundtable, we are going to sit around the table, dig into one of these new features, and learn it (or at least start to learn it) together over the course of the meeting. The topic for this FMburgh Investigation is the Transaction script steps i.e. Open Transaction, Commit Transaction, and Revert Transaction. We’ll open FileMaker Pro and build a demo file together as we dig into this new feature and try out the script steps. If you’re already an expert, we look forward to hearing your insight. If you didn’t even know these script steps existed, this will be a perfect introduction as you learn along with the rest of us.

As is our custom, we will open the floor to general FileMaker discussion at the end of the meeting if time permits so bring your questions. Hopefully, with a room full of FileMaker experts, we’ll have the answers.
