iCal Manipulator Version 2.0.0.0 Now Available—So What’s New?

September 22nd, 2015

Logo_iCal_900

Our iCal Manipulator plug-in, hereinafter referred to as iCal Manip, was first released on April 6, 2010, and to celebrate its five and almost a half year Birthday, we’re proud to announce that the newest version is now available! So how did we improve a plug-in that’s been around for over half a decade? Read on to find out…

 

How it works:

 

iCal Manip provides a bidirectional data exchange using nothing more than FileMaker script steps. You can use our iCal Manip plug-in to eliminate double entry and directly connect FileMaker with Apple Calendar.

 

Awesome features you can use in our updated demo file to integrate iCal Manip with your solution:

 

– With iCal Manip you can quickly push and pull calendars, reminders, and events with the simple click of a button. This plug-in also allows for selective imports. When pulling events or reminders from Apple Calendar, you can select a specific calendar, type of reminder or event, and the completion or due date—and it will only import those items that match your request.

– You have the ability to create, edit, and delete your calendars, events, and reminders directly in FileMaker.

– iCal Manip can even handle recurring events! So go ahead—schedule that weekly meeting for the next five years. However, please note that the plug-in does not support events that occur on a specific week each year, so we can’t help you remember that you have that timeshare in Belize on the 32nd week of the year.

– You can also read and write to any calendar in your Apple Calendar, regardless of what account it resides under. This includes the local calendar, iCloud, Exchange, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, CalDav and more!

– Mobility is key in this generation, so of course you’ll have access to events and tasks on the go, if you’ve synced your mobile device with your Apple Calendar.

 

So what’s new?

 

– We’re now compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite and we’re FikeMaker Pro 14, 64-bit certified.

– We’ve updated our demo file! You know the feeling you get when you put on that perfect outfit? Well that’s how we feel about our demo’s new, sleek design!

– And this is what we’re most excited about: You can create alarms for events or tasks that will alert you on your desktop or mobile device (via your Apple Calendar/ Reminders). Now you’ll never forget about that meeting, miss that important deadline, or accidentally skip the next company party.

– Last but not least, you’ll appreciate the fact that we’ve created iCal Manip with the latest Apple tools and technologies for maximum under the hood performance and efficiency.

PCI Announces New FM Books Connector Mac Template

November 6th, 2014

SAN DIEGO, CA – November 6, 2014 – Productive Computing, Inc. announces the release of a free utility tool for Macintosh-based developers that works hand in hand with the FM Books Connector for Windows.  The FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in is a template file that allows Mac FileMaker developers to write scripts from a Mac operating system to be used with the Windows based FM Books Connector plug-in and Intuit’s QuickBooks desktop applications.  All functions available to the FM Books Connector plug-in for Windows are also available in the FM Books Connector Mac Template.  However, one important difference is that the Mac Template has zero functionality implemented within it.  The FM Books Connector Mac Template will not perform any actual data transfer between FileMaker Pro and QuickBooks desktop.

The intent of the FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in is to provide a useful tool for Mac-focused developers and integrators of the FM Books Connector plug-in to carry out their development from their preferred environment.  For example, a Mac-based FileMaker developer could use the FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in to write up an entire script for pushing a found set of customer records to QuickBooks on their OS X development machine, and then access the same script in FileMaker Pro on a Windows machine and perform testing and refinement to ensure the script is functioning as intended without the need to rewrite the entire script or comment/uncomment every plug-in function call.

The FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in requires no registration, no extra installations or required resources.  To get started, simply download the FM Books Connector Mac Template from the link below.  Unzip the bundle and install the “PCFMBooksConnector.fmplugin” file into the FileMaker Pro Extensions folder, or install using the “Install Plug-in” script step (available in FileMaker Pro 12 and newer) and the plug-in is set up and ready for scripting.

For more information regarding FM Books Connector for Windows please visit:  http://www.fmbooksconnector.com/

Important Note:  The FM Books Connector Mac Template is for development purposes only.  For full functionality to communicate directly with QuickBooks for Windows the full version of the FMBooks Connector plug-in is required.  Unfortunately, communication of any kind to the Macintosh version of QuickBooks is not available since Intuit does not have a Mac compatible Software Development Kit (SDK).
