OnWindowTransaction script trigger, leveraging it along with native FileMaker script transactions to create an audit log that is efficient, scalable, flexible, performant, and convenient to implement.
FileMaker 2023 introduces
Perform Script on Server with Callback, a new asynchronous method to execute scripts with FileMaker Server. Now we have a way for FileMaker Server to execute another script, a “Callback” script, when one script is done processing via
