iCal Integration for FileMaker: the new Zulu Plugin
August 31, 2010 in FileMaker
[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - SeedCode today is proud to release our much anticipated iCal Server for FileMaker, Zulu, a collaboration with the brilliant developers at 360Works. Zulu is a server-side plugin for FileMaker Server that lets iCal see your FileMaker data as iCal calendars. You can edit your records in iCal and from the calendars on your iPhone and iPad. When you do, you're editing the FileMaker records directly. iCal will even respect FileMaker's record locking if someone else is editing the record when you try to do the same.
Richard Carlton of RC Consulting says, "The capability to connect iCal to FileMaker, in real time, is truly staggering, since we have never had this ability previously." And Lisa Lemler, who is using Zulu to work with 36 calendars for the DA's office in Mobile, AL says, "I look like a genius around here! ... Zulu is amazing. There are no signs of slowdown or stress on my server at all!"
* Shows your FileMaker data as another calendar in iCal
* Zulu filters allow you to publish just part of a FileMaker table, etc.
* ...or publish a single table as more than one calendar- offering calendars per user, per status, etc.
* Respects FileMaker access privileges and record locking
* Optionally run post-edit and pre-delete scripts in FileMaker when changing records in iCal
* Changes made in iCal, iPhone, or iPad are instantly visible in FileMaker Pro
* Changes made in FileMaker are visible in iCal as soon as iCal refreshes
* Requires FileMaker Server 9 or higher
