Shedule Events In FileMaker Pro With New Plugin
Waves In Motion has released a new FileMaker plugin called Script Scheduler 1.07 for both Mac and PC. The new plugin is designed to let users script actions in a variety of ways. According to Waves in Motion:

With the release of Script Scheduler 1.07, now both Macintosh and Windows developers can quickly do away with these limitations and dramatically improve their FileMaker solutions. You can configure Script Scheduler to trigger any script in any file at a scheduled time or at regular intervals. Or even better, you can instruct Script Scheduler to trigger a script whenever you exit a particular field.

All this happens in the background with no restrictions and next to no overhead. You can send doscript events as often as you want. You can stop and start the scheduler whenever you want. And, of course, you can toggle the field modification trigger so that it's only on when you need it, and off during serious data crunching, when you wouldn't want to be running a script for every record you modify.

Imagine being able to trigger a script whenever a new record is created.

Imagine creating a mission-critical application that can quickly determine which fields have changed in a record or easily create a log of changes to a specific field.

Imagine creating a self-contained sales database that knows right away when you've received a new order, that produces reports at regular intervals, and that generates an e-mail notification whenever your stock is running low.

You can purchase single-user license for $79.00 US from Waves in Motion. Site licenses and distribution licenses are also available for developers who want to include Script Scheduler as part of their FileMaker Pro solutions.

[Editor's Note: While we were able to pull up the company's product list, we were unable to access the Script Scheduler page itself.]
