Filemaker Script

FileMaker script is a feature of the FileMaker platform, one of the easiest database management systems for creating custom apps. It allows users to automate tasks within FileMaker databases without needing to know SQL or another traditional programming language. The scripting environment lets developers build complex interactions by combining different script steps that perform specific actions. These can include navigating layouts, finding records, sorting data, and exporting information in various formats. With FileMaker Script, creators can design apps with sophisticated workflows that operate seamlessly and improve user productivity by streamlining operations behind simple buttons or triggers on layouts. The scripts integrate with calculations and conditional logic making it easier to develop business-specific solutions without extensive code writing expertise.
