solutions consultant and development company, is pleased to announce

Rebuilt from the ground up for FileMaker 7.0, Events 4.0 is faster
and easy to use. This cross platform plug-in has powerful new
features that will expand a developer’s ability to innovate in his or
Events 4.0 allows the user to build triggers to run from just about
any FileMaker action. In addition, all actions can now result in
email being sent directly without the need for an email client
application or additional plug-in.
Events 4.0 together with FileMaker Pro 7.0 allows developers to
trigger scripts or send email at a specified or recurring time when:
-exiting a field,
-creating, viewing, entering, exiting, or deleting a record, and
-entering a layout.
Events 4.0 even allows you to trigger emails to be sent behind the
scenes at any time. Imagine the things you can do:
-Create triggers to perform automated tasks in the background.
Create FileMaker robots that process orders as they come in and
generate complex reports for the next morning.
-Create triggers that automatically log record edits, views, adds,
and deletes, such as logging critical changes to your data. When a
user seems to delete a customer record, you can actually archive it
behind the scenes.
-Add “drag and drop” functionality by building more intuitive
interfaces. Instead of clicking a button to perform an action, let
users see how the data is moving.
-Set and pass unlimited tokens with each triggered event. For
example, as you log into your FileMaker system, all your time-delayed
correspondence can automatically be sent. Imagine sending thank you
e-mails or follow-up correspondence to find out if a customer is
According to Vince Mennano, President, Waves in Motion, “We are
really excited to be using the new API available with FileMaker
Developer 7.0. This allows the plug-in to show up with multiple,
self-explanatory parameter names, making development with the plug-in
extremely easy. FileMaker Pro 7.0 provides developers with a brand
new tool set, and we feel Events 4.0 will become an indispensable
addition to that set of tools. Events 4.0 will allow developers to
achieve their solution goals in new and creative ways.”
