"Sync" for FileMaker brings FileMaker to the cloud. The 100% FileMaker (no plugins or extensions) based product allows to synchronise your data between multiple databases. Besides the basic features as the replication of new records, changed records and deleted records accross all databases "Sync" supports all regular fields as well as attachments, repeated fields and keeps all inline styles of the fields.
5 simple steps to set up your databases
Runs in different environments
Runs on all platforms on which FileMaker is running
You do not need to install any Plugins. There are only two FileMaker files (one is the Config file and the other one is the SyncApp itself). A big plus is that "Sync" can be used without the need of a FileMaker Server. However the "Sync" can be installed on a FileMaker Server as well.
The major difference to other synchronisation tools or plugins is that you can have a mixed system. This means that a FileMaker Pro client can synchronise with a FileMaker Go App. Runtime-Solutions are supported as well as iOS FileMaker apps.
As the guys from work360 (the makers of MirrorSync) say, a synchronisation process should be measured in seconds rather than in minutes. Thats exactly how fast SyncApp works. In addition, we think that the setup process for the synchronisation should be measured in minutes rather than hours.
Serial numbers must have a separate range on each device to not interfer eachother (it is not recommended to use serial numbers as primary key!)
There are many different solutions to make your data available on multiple devices using the FileMaker platform.
