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.

Add these to your cart then use "QTY" to select the number of users.
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. If you're interested in enabling sharing from a Vertical Market deployment of DayBack for FileMaker, each site (each instance of DayBack for FileMaker) needs its own single user license of DayBack Online.
DayBack Online enables sharing read-only calendars from DayBack for FileMaker. You only need a single user license of DayBack Online to enable sharing, though you may want to add additional user license if you want some people to be able to edit calendars online.
When used to enable sharing you don't need to configure DayBack Online, don't need to install the PHPrelay, and don't need FileMaker Server.
DayBack Online can be used to share read-only schedules from DayBack for FileMaker, or can be used to edit your FileMaker records in a browser (or in WebDirect) instead of in FileMaker client. You only need a single user license to DayBack Online to enable sharing from DayBack for FileMaker. For editing, a user is anyone who logs into DayBack Online. This is the total number 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. Any schedules you've shared would be unreachable by your share recipients once you cancel.
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.
