Matt Petrowsky takes Tim Dietrich’s FMEasySynch and, as is his wont, makes it easier to use by building a database:
Having recently arrived at the need for a syncing solution for a pro bono database, my options were pretty much limited to “create your own” or use what’s free.
It turns out that FMEasySync, from Tim Dietrich, is very robust and powerful syncing solution. In fact, it was awarded the FileMaker Excellence Award for FBA Development of the Year in 2014 by FileMaker, Inc. It has also been integrated into a few of FileMaker’s own solutions, such as the Devcon Speaker Proposal database.
There are a number of developers using the solution, and its attention factor is on the rise.
As with all solutions and techniques created within FileMaker, the integration process is what will take you the most amount of time. The first time takes the longest, and once you’re familiar, you can typically reduce the time by quite a bit.
As more and more businesses automate processes by providing solutions to mobile devices, backups and offline synchs become more important. FMEasySync and FMRecipes make it easier for FileMaker developers to achieve these goals.
