FileMaker Intros Datagraph Widget, New FileMaker Automator Actions

SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple subsidiary FileMaker on Monday introduced new downloads for Mac OS X v10.4 "Tiger" users: a Dashboard widget called Datagraph and new FileMaker Automator actions that can be employed by users and developers. Datagraph enables users to summon bar graph views -- up to five bars based on up to five fields of data -- for their database records.

The FileMaker Automator actions allow users to create custom workflows based on common FileMaker scripts, such as Perform Script, Show All Records and so forth. Publish to InDesign Pict Frames and Publish to InDesign Text Frames are also included for users who need to export data to Adobe InDesign Creative Suite. Workflows can be saved once theyire created.

Datagraph is available now while the Automator actions had a "Coming soon!" notice on them when The Mac Observer checked FileMakeris Web site. Both downloads require FileMaker Pro 7.
