Build-On Tutorial:

WebDirect Access

Memberships Template: WebDirect Access

Overview

Tutorial summary

With this Build-On, you will open your app to Web users. You will build two versions of a Campaign List layout for FileMaker WebDirect, so users who don't have FileMaker Pro Advanced or FileMaker Go can check on the status of your campaigns through a browser.

What to expect

When you’re done with this Build-On, your team will be able to:

  • Log in to your app from a web browser
  • See a list of campaigns
  • See the list in a layout that fits their window: either a wider layout for desktop browser access or a narrower layout for browsers on a mobile device

Getting started

You will need a few elements before you begin this tutorial.
