iOS Notifications in FileMaker 17

October 01, 2018

FileMaker 17 has a cool new feature for users of FileMaker Go. It is called iOS Notifications. We are all familiar with the ability of iOS apps to deliver notifications to us when certain requested conditions are met. But until FM17, it was not possible to do that with FileMaker. But now we can.

This allows FileMaker scripts to perform actions in the background so that even if the user has moved away from FileMaker, when certain events happen, they can receive a notification on their phone.

It is a cool new tool in FM17 for anybody who has a mobile solution using FM Go.
