Benefits

  • New Quick Find and Layout Folders features allow users to find exactly what they want in a fraction of the time

Whole Foods Programmer Analyst Bryce Bartley discusses why FileMaker Pro 11 is exceptionally beneficial for the company. "Most of what makes us excited about FileMaker Pro 11 is the attention to detail and refinements to the program. Things like Layout Folders and the consolidated tools in the new Inspector really save us time when building our FileMaker files."

Bartley adds that he is especially enthusiastic about the new Quick Find feature. "The feature that I am most excited about is the Quick Find field in FileMaker Pro 11. Our FileMaker files contain all the signage for our stores. With large files covering tons of products and ingredients, it has been a hassle in the past using scripts to search multiple fields for the same criteria. With this new feature, we have one universal place in every file that we can use to find whatever we need. Whether it's an allergen statement, an ingredient, or a product name, we can easily find it without having to script a thing."

Layout Folders let us organize our layouts much better. Before we had an ever–growing list of sign layouts, but now we can keep it organized and help our stores find the exact sign layout they need—in a fraction of the time!

Before we had an ever–growing list of sign layouts, but now we can keep it organized and help our stores find the exact sign layout they need—in a fraction of the time!"
