Let's Get Started
When you first launch the FMChat file you will be presented with a welcome screen. From here you can choose to create a new account by clicking "Create Account" in the left sidebar or entering credentials for an existing account.
If you would like to use a test account that has some chats already created please sign in with these credentials:
Once you have signed in you can click on "View My Chats" in the side bar to look at a couple of existing chats.
Types of Chats
Using FM Chat
To start a new chat simply click "Start A Chat" from the welcome layout, then from the "Start Chat" tab click on each user you would like to be involved in the chat. Once the users are selected click the "Start Chat" button.
You may notice that some of the messages in the existing chats have links that you can click on. These links were created using "Data Detectors". Data detectors can be modified in the "Admin Setup" section. You can access this section from the "Filemaker Pro" Menu on Mac and the "Edit" Menu on Windows. You can also navigate there from the "Welcome" layout.
