FileMaker Cloud and Encryption At Rest

So you’ve got files hosted on the cloud and you now want to move some of that data into another table. When you go to import, you’re going to be faced with a dialog to enter the Encryption At Rest password FOR EVERY IMPORT you perform. Luckily, if you have FileMaker Pro Advanced, you can use the Developer Utilities to remove the password from your files before you run the import. This will save you the headache of entering the password and when you upload the files back to your server the password will be re-added. Check out FileMaker Help for more information on decrypting your files.

Let’s talk about Quantum View Notifications

Recently we’ve have requests about how to customize the text that appears in UPS Quantum View notifications. In NRGship you can set three pieces of information that show on the label. The first is the Sender Name. If you have a Sender Name set in QV this value will be used, otherwise it will default to the shipper (or drop shipper) name. The second is the Message area. This can be used to include a Thank You or other customizable information. Lastly any reference information on the shipment will be included, along with the reference field labels. Unfortunately, the From value that appears is your account name on file with UPS. You will need to contact your UPS rep in order to change the way that this appears.

Can’t see your contacts?

Many Mac apps will ask for access to your Contacts or other data to provide a seamless user experience. If you deny access on launch, it’s easy to allow access at a future time. Simply open your System Preferences and choose Security & Privacy. From this screen you can select Contacts and then check the box to allow access to the listed apps.
