Switch record in IPad from Computer


Recommended Posts

Hi. I have a server installed with Filemaker Pro Server Advanced 12, a computer installed with Filemaker Pro Advanced 12 and an IPad installed with Filemaker Go. All client are connected to the server via remote. The thing is I want to press a button in the computer and the IPad will automatically go to the related record. For example, In a patient profile page , there's a button . When I hit that button, The Ipad's Filemaker Go will go to the related patient record from the computer. Is it possible?

Afaik the answer is no for a direct communication "button press."


But you might be able to improvise a setup where you enter the record # into a field on the computer and then use a timer-fired script on the iPad to check every so often to see if there is a record to open. You will also want to include the logic where the iPad timed-script does NOT fire when a record is open on the iPad until the iPad user designates as such.
