How can I process the inbox automatically
You can process your inbox automatically by a) setting "Auto Processing" to "On" from the Inbox tab, and b) setting up a FileMaker Server Script Schedule to run the script "Auto Processing" as often as you'd like to process records.
Here are a few things to keep in mind regarding this script and any scripts you have it call:
Make sure the script only uses Server compatible script steps (you can find those by toggling "show compatibility" in the lower right of the Edit Scripts window).
References to Get ( CurrentTime
) in this script will use the time of your FileMaker
Sever. Get ( AccountName
) will return the name of the logged in user (set when you create the schedule).
If there are script steps in your script that are not supported in Server the script will stop running as soon as it hits one, unless the Allow User Abort script step option is included and disabled (Off).
Be sure to call the "Commit Records/Requests" step at the end of any scripts you chain on to ours (any processing you want to do once you've created/edited a record in your solution).
