How long has it been since you last spring cleaned FileMaker Pro? Well a new year is the perfect excuse to pay some attention to the areas of your database you may have been neglecting. Before the year gets away from you, we suggest giving your FileMaker Pro a little bit of TLC in the following ways:

  • Update contact details on old records and delete unnecessary ones
  • Hide unused layouts from the side menu
  • Create new layouts to manage new reporting requirements
  • Ask employees to confirm their personal information is correct
  • Enter the data that you ran out of time to input in 2009
