The free downloadable kit’s four self-paced training modules include the new FileMaker Go module, which teaches users how to optimize and deploy FileMaker Pro databases on the iPad and iPhone. It also provides recommendations for using calculations and scripts in FileMaker Go, and covers passing data between FileMaker Go and other mobile applications.
The FileMaker Go training module and three modules covering some of the hottest FileMaker topics (Working with Layouts, Reporting and Security) are sold as part of the £65 FileMaker Training Series, but are available free, along with a 30-day trial of FileMaker Pro, in this kit, says Ryan Rosenberg, vice president of marketing and services for FileMaker, Inc.
In the kit’s Working with Layouts module, users can discover tools and techniques for creating layouts in FileMaker Pro 11, including the new Inspector tool palette. Reporting covers building sub-summary reports and cross-tab reports, as well as using FileMaker Charts to create more dynamic reports. The Security content offers best practices for setting up user-based accounts and privilege in FileMaker Pro 11.
