SENT – Send HTML Email From FileMaker Pro

Edinburgh, Scotland – July 11, 2019 – WhiteSpace Systems Ltd., a leader in producing high quality, efficient FileMaker® solutions, is proud to announce the launch of our eagerly awaited SENT app.

This FileMaker app allows you to send HTML emails directly from a FileMaker Pro Webviewer.

SENT has the following features:

  • Send HTML Emails.
  • Include attachments from either a Container field or directly from your filesystem.
  • Native FileMaker, no 3rd party plugins.
  • Simple to set up. Only a few custom functions and a Webviewer are required.
  • Unlimited discreet automatic updates.
  • Backwards compatible to FileMaker 14.

As a company and since FileMaker 8.5 introduced the Webviewer object, we have looked to develop a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) for rich text editing. Most of our solutions have the ability to send HTML email from within FileMaker Pro. We would always end up purchasing a plugin to accomplish this. It would worked fine but it always consisted in us having to build an email client in FileMaker and then the scripts to handle the sending of the email. This grew tiresome and we wished for a quicker solution to send HTML Email directly from FileMaker Pro.

Our main goal with SENT was to take away the complexity of sending html emails with attachments in FileMaker. This would make it accessible for novice to intermediate FileMaker developers. Even experienced developers will find SENT useful as it takes away all the complexity of SMTP and reduces it to just a few custom functions.

Steven McGill, Director, WhiteSpace Systems Ltd.

SENT has a free limited demo mode. This allows you to quickly test email sending and make evaluate if SENT is the right solution for solving your problem of sending HTML emails from FileMaker Pro.

FileMaker fmapi suite launch

Edinburgh, Scotland – March 22, 2019 – WhiteSpace Systems Ltd., a leader in producing high quality, effcient FileMaker® solutions, is proud to announce the launch of our eagerly awaited fmapi suite.

This FileMaker app suite allows you to connect your FileMaker app to a range of different 3rd Party APIs. For our initial launch we have started off small with providing our fmapi-vies-vat app but have a future road map to expand our suite to allow for integration with Payment Gateways, Cloud Storage, Shipping/Courier services and many more!

fmapi-vies-vat app allows you to connect your FileMaker app to the EU Commissions VIES API. This allows you to validate an EU VAT number directly from within your own FileMaker solution. This can be extremely useful for companies in the EU that trade to other companies in different EU countries. It offers a method to easily validate the EU VAT number, then with this knowledge, apply the appropriate VAT rate to something like an Invoice or Sales Order.

As a company and since FileMaker 16 introduced cURL to it’s platform, we have been integrating 3rd party APIs more and more into our customer solutions. These APIs have greatly enhanced their apps without the need of purchasing expensive plugins to accomplish the task. As we found more and more customers asking for the same types of integration, it was decided that we should streamline our integration process of APIs by building bolt on apps. These bolt on apps are the reason we are here today launching our exciting new fmapi suite of apps.

Our main goal was to make the complex world of REST APIs more accessible for novice to intermediate FileMaker developers. Even experience developers will find use with our suite of apps because all the heavy lifting has already been done and tested by our expert FileMaker developers.

Steven McGill, Director, WhiteSpace Systems Ltd.

fmapi-vies-vat app is a FREE TO USE app. This means that it doesn’t cost you anything to include in your solutions and can be used in multiple solutions. fmapi suite will contain several free to use apps, so look forward to more quality software with no COST!

All apps in the fmapi suite come with extensive documentation with full details of everything that can be accomplished. Each download contains a demo file that is completely unlocked to allow you to see the capability of each app.

All our apps should be compatible with the FileMaker 16+ platforms.
