What’s new in Claris FileMaker 19.2.2.

Creating apps in a web browser takes another step forward, plus other great updates.

Claris FileMaker Pro 19.2.2 and Claris FileMaker Cloud

In this new release, Claris have included a quick-start feature to provide a faster way to get started and move on to creating custom applications. The new feature can also help you quickly build prototype apps for demos or a proof of concept that can be expanded later.

Check out what’s new in this latest release of the Custom App Creator:

  • Ready-made templates: Jump start app creation with preconfigured tables for managing assets, contacts, products, and staff. Or explore built-in kanban boards, calendars, heatmaps, and more for inspiration. They’re all customisable so you can explore ways to make them your own.
  • List-detail layouts: For easy record navigation, display a list and detail view on the same layout.
  • Button actions: Select from commonly used actions, such as go to a specific layout or create a new record, to control how a button works on a layout. This set of actions is just a start – more are planned for the future.
  • Conditional formatting: Format fields, like the text or background colour, based on a list of predefined conditions. Get visual cues when inventory is running low or a due date is approaching.
  • New field types: Use the new predefined telephone and currency fields to get started more quickly. Telephone numbers and dollar values are automatically formatted, for fast, error-free data entry. These field types support US and Canada formats only for now, but more formats coming in future iterations.
  • Top Navigation bar: Build automatic navigation throughout your app. No scripting needed.
  • Quick upload: Easily upload quick-start apps from FileMaker Pro to FileMaker Cloud. Just click Sharing and select Upload to Host.

FileMaker Pro 19.2.2 also includes new functions and bug fixes.
