FileMaker offers many options for gathering and storing data (records, lists, fields, and tables) but how do you turn that data into something users can review or analyze? When you convert your data into a chart, you provide the user with a visual tool that allows them to quickly interpret the meaning of the data.
Charts are a great way to present relevant business information such as sales numbers, customer growth, financial budgets, or employee performance.
Learn to use FileMaker charts so you can summarize your findings in your FileMaker app with clear and concise dashboards, detailed reports, or compact summaries.
This course is created specifically for developers needing to demystify the fundamentals of FileMaker charting. We show you how to create and configure all 10 of the different FileMaker charts and demonstrate connecting to the free version of Tableau to provide even more charting options for your solution. The course includes a free unlocked FileMaker sample app and checklist of questions.
For each chart option, you will learn:
- Strengths and weaknesses
- The right questions to ask and answer
- How to create it quickly and effectively
- Common pitfalls and distractions
- Mastery of the FileMaker Chart Inspector components
Take your FileMaker app to the next level by mastering the FileMaker charting tools at your fingertips.
