Now you may be thinking that calendars are not exactly an exciting innovation and you’d be right. However, in FileMaker, calendars are not particularly easy to do either. There are several variants of third-party solutions, we’ve worked with a few of them with mixed success. In particular, they tend to slooow dowwwn when hosted on a cloud server and/or with a lot of users and appointments.
So in the best Kiwi No. 8 tradition, we made our own and we are stoked with it.
It runs much faster than anything else we’ve tried, it has drag-and-drop functionality, colour-coding, it integrates easily, it looks ‘modern’ and it can support gantt charting for scheduling tasks. We’ve already retro-fitted it to an existing solution and are looking to deploy it in a couple more upcoming projects.
