[05] Events Task Automation – Work while you sleep!
Do you ever wish you could accomplish more in your 24 hour day? You can, with the Events plug-in for FileMaker!
The Events plug-in is the only employee that can work 24/7 without a break. It’s time you took advantage of the Events plug-in to automatically perform tasks in your database at specific times. With this power you can setup a dedicated copy of FileMaker Pro with the Events plug-in and use it to save time and system load during the day. This means you can perform large scripted operations (such as report generation, etc.) during the night, and come into the office in the morning with a head start on the day.
Here are just some of the tasks you can automate with Events:
– Triggers on record creation, view, entry, exit, or deletion
– Triggers on field exit (via validation formula)
– Triggers on layout entry
– Triggers on field initialization
– Triggers on global drop-down list changes
– Triggers when a calculation field is calculated
– Triggers at a specified time or recurrently
