Alexi Folger, FileMaker Senior Systems Engineers, points out a powerful new feature in version 12.

Glen Suarez and Alexi Folger were back in town for the May meeting.  Glen explained the new licensing guidelines of FileMaker version 12, and confirmed the fact that FileMaker Go 12 for iOS is a free download from the App Store. With 35 million iPhones and 11 million iPads sold last quarter, the ocean of devices for FileMaker solutions is vast.

After Glen’s presentation, Alexi wasted no time wading into the new waters of FileMaker 12.  indeed she could only wade within the short hour and half she had to cover a plethora of new features in both FileMaker Server as well as FileMaker Pro.  New tools for layout themes, alignment, and layout parts.  New tools for charting.  And new tools for storing container data outside of FileMaker at specified directories on the host computer.
