Setting up a new iPad with VSS
« on: February 17, 2016, 11:06:25 AM »

Setting up new iPads for your captains is easy.

First ensure that you have already downloaded/ installed FileMaker Go 14 on the iPad. FileMaker Go 14 can be downloaded for free from the App Store.

In the Central file:
1.   Navigate to the Preferences module and click on the “General” tab. Please note that only users with Management privileges can send the remote file.
2.   Next to your company logo is the remote database file.
3.   Click the “Email Remote File” button and enter the email address(es) associated with the iPad(s) you wish to send the VSS file to.

On iPad:
1.   Open the email with the subject line “Remote File” and click on the icon to download.
2.   Once it has downloaded, click on the icon again to launch the file.
3.   The iPad will ask you what you wish to do with the file—click the “Open in FileMaker Go” icon.
4.   The VSS remote file will then walk the captain through the set up process, including importing settings and then selecting a user.
