FileMaker WebDirect Calendar – DayBack Online
Loving #DayBack from @seedcode. Great tool, totally deserves its award from #FileMakerDevCon. Great support as well.

I’ve been waiting for the perfect calendar for 20 years and you guys built it.

You can add additional users from within the admin settings in DayBack Online. Log in as an administrator and click on Settings / Admin Settings / Groups. (Adding more users is coming online shortly: please contact us in the meantime.)
While Vertical Market (VM) deployments have always been a big part of our business--and VM customers have been really loving DayBack for FileMaker--we don't yet have a complete strategy for using DayBack Online in VM scenarios. We know that you'll need branded sign-up pages and the ability to reference your own docs (instead of ours) but we imagine there is more to do.
If you're interested in a VM deployment of DayBack Online, please get in touch so we can come up with a solution that works for you.
Users in DayBack Online each get a username and a password to the DayBack Online app. So a user is anyone who logs into DayBack Online. This is the totalnumber of such users, not concurrent users, and it can be more users (or fewer users) than your FileMaker solution supports in FileMaker Pro client.
When you cancel your subscription, or let it lapse, the DayBack Online interface will stop working but your FileMaker data stays in your FileMaker tables as it always did. Your DayBack settings will persist in the app for one year, so if you need to use a monthly subscription for a few months a year, every year, you can do that by just restarting your subscription.
No, they're counted the same way. DayBack Online's license doesn't know if someone is coming in from the web or from WebDirect.
DayBack Online requires FileMaker Server 12 or higher with XML web publishing running: these are just the built-in web publishing services that come with FileMaker Server. Nothing fancy is required. You'll also need the ability to place a simple php relay file on your FileMaker Server: this is where you'll grant DayBack Online access to your tables so DayBack doesn't need your FileMaker accounts and passwords. It's a simple file; you can read more about it here.
DayBack Online does not require DayBack for FileMaker; they were designed to work together but DayBack Online can be pointed at any hosted FileMaker table containing dates.
DayBack Online is about as close as you can come to pure FileMaker custom web publishing. Unlike some approaches, you don't need to use any plugins, or run installers that rewrite your server's configurations. This keeps your server reliable and easy to maintain. DayBack is even transparent about the simple php file you place on your FileMaker Server; the short file is open for you to modify and is even published as part of SeedCode's open source fmxj project.
