Scripting - JSON Data Writer

While working on a solution which made heavy use of an online API for REST based communication, the solution slowly revealed it had a large number of "specially dedicated" data processing scripts. Many of these scripts were quite normal in the realm of "I have some data, I want to put it into the right place." You know, your typical Go To Layout then Set Field script steps. The issue, however, was that most all of them did somewhat they same thing - a lot of code duplication. They either put th

Getting the best from your team

A study by economists at the University of Warwick found that happiness led to a 12 percent boost in productivity, while unhappy workers were 10 percent less productive. The research team stated, “We find that human happiness has large and positive causal effects on productivity. Positive emotions appear to invigorate human beings.” We’ve all [...] The post Getting the best from your team appeared first on The Scarpetta Group, Inc.. Afficher la totalité du billet

10 Top tips on small team efficiency

“Running a small team is easy”- words spoken by many a large team leader. For a team to work symbiotically, it’s not about the numbers, it’s about the actions taken. Sometimes this can be tougher in a smaller team because if one person is MIA there are fewer people to pick up the additional [...] The post 10 Top tips on small team efficiency appeared first on The Scarpetta Group, Inc..

Writing Custom Functions - Successfully

While taking the time to write a four hour custom function the other day, it occurred to me that some viewers may think that complex custom functions are just something which pops out of your head and immediately ends up on the screen. When, in fact, the truth is it takes a lot longer than you expect because you rarely get things perfectly the first time. It's all about wading through the errors and issues and ending up with the desired result. In this video, I walk through my process of compo

De jolis popovers natifs 👩‍🎨👨‍🎨

Consœurs, confrères, Après plusieurs remarques positives sur mes popovers d'un look un peu inattendu, j'ai décidé d'en faire un petit article en vidéo. La vidéo est d'un format "réseau social", donc assez courte. Je n'entre pas dans les détails. Cependant, si le comment faire technique vous échappe, n'hésitez pas à me le dire en commentaire, je pourrai donner plus de détail. De même, si d'autres aspects liés à la présentation, aux interfaces vous intéresse, on pourra ouvrir d'autr

Quick Find Power Mode

Who doesn't like the simplicity of using a single field to search across many. That's essentially what Quick Find is. In fact, by default FileMaker makes the silly assumption that every field you add to a layout is something you want the user to be able to search. Essentially, you want to take control of the user experience in terms of search and make sure the user is not only searching what you want them to search, but also able to search in a fashion which is both familiar and comfortable.

Killer Keywords

In many situations, you'd think the easiest solution would be the best. Saving time and getting the job done quickly. This, however, just isn't the case if you're going to allow users to use a simple text field for managing keywords or tags. A tagging system relies on making it easy for the user, but it may not be so easy to implement itself. Here are a few questions you might be faced with. What happens when one user enters "devloper" on record 1 and another user enters the correctly spelled "

Error Handling & Logging - Updated

When talking about logging, error handling and writing clean code it's never quite as exciting as working on the key features of your solution. Adding in the "cool" stuff and simply making things work is way more fun. Yet, one of the main things you rely on when developing is information from users and from your software itself. If you don't capture any of that helpful information, then you're essentially developing in the dark. You'll get obscure support requests like "It doesn't work." which
