SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/FileMaker?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#FileMakerlt;/agt;–Today FileMaker, Inc., announced the release of the FileMaker 18
Platform, the latest version of its leading Workplace Innovation
Platform. The release features a range of enhancements from an improved
user interface to a larger offering of security controls.
“The newest version of the FileMaker Platform helps you tackle your
biggest challenges at work,” said Ann Monroe, VP of worldwide marketing
and customer success at FileMaker, Inc. “Building on our proven platform
by adding new security, UI, and scripting enhancements, we empower
problem solvers in any role to use the FileMaker Workplace Innovation
Platform, and tap into our ecosystem of development partners, templates,
training offerings, and events, to bring their ideas to life.”
More than 50 thousand companies, from small and medium-sized businesses
to Fortune Global 500 firms, use the FileMaker Platform to quickly and
easily create custom apps to solve their unique challenges and drive
growth. While custom apps built on the FileMaker Platform can be

integration more seamless and powerful than ever before.

within such a short time frame,” said Martin Clapp, a FileMaker
Developer at Wood Fruitticher. “It is not a pat on my back, but instead
a testament to FileMaker.”

New features include:
New user interface for importing data — More easily map
imported source data to FileMaker fields using the new Import Field
Mapping dialog box. Use type ahead instead of drag and drop for
greater efficiency. And specify custom delimiters when importing
certain file types.
File-based script steps — Create scripts that read, write,
and manage external data files to write log files or export data in a
custom format. Replaces the need for many file-based plug-ins.
New managed security access — This new privilege set
allows developers to offload account access management to other team
members without needing to provide full access to any other parts of
Manage Security dialog box — The streamlined Manage
Security dialog box allows you to be more efficient in managing access
to your custom apps.
Startup restoration — FileMaker files are now
automatically recoverable after a hardware or software crash. The
restoration log in FileMaker Server validates database entries when a
file is first opened, before client access, and if the file had not
been properly closed.
Platform parity — The FileMaker Cloud for AWS 1.18 code
base supports all of the new features in the FileMaker 18 Platform.
