What is Sharing?
You can share any filtered view in DayBack, creating a public URL that matches the view you're looking at. This is a great way to send someone just *part* of your schedule, or to share plans with customers and contractors.
See it in action here: Shared Views
Turn on Sharing for DayBack
1. Update to the Latest DayBack for FileMaker.
If you see a "Share" menu in the upper right of DayBack then you already have a sharing-enabled version. Move on to step 2 =)
If you don't see "Share", sharing was introduced in DayBack version 9.99. Find your version here
, then follow the instructions to update from your file to the latest version.
2. Start a Free 30-day Trial of DayBack Online
You'll eventually need a single user license of DayBack Online to enable sharing from FileMaker, but you can start with a free trial. After signing up, you'll receive a user-token by email that you add to DayBack for FileMaker to activate sharing in step 3 below.
Once your trial expires, a single-user license is $139 USD/year here
. (You just need a single user license to enable sharing: this enables sharing for *any* of your DayBack for FileMaker users.)
3. Copy Your User Token
As soon as you've signed up for DayBack Online you'll be presented with your "user token". This token tells DayBack where to send your shared views. Copy this token to your clipboard.
4. Add Your User Token to a Script in DayBack
Open your DayBack for FileMaker file and edit the script "Load Calendar Settings - On Startup --- Edit Configuration Here ---". You'll see a section for "sharing" towards the beginning of the script. Add your user token to the variable "$$sc_DBKOUserToken" at line 16.
That variable was added to this script in version 5.99, so if you don't see it, revisit step 1 above and make sure you're using the latest version of DayBack.
5. Run the "Upon Opening" Script
Run the "Upon Opening" script again to see your changes take effect. This will activate the sharing menu and you can click "Share this View" to start sharing. Notes and tips on how to share can be found here: Sharing
Troubleshooting: Authorization Failed
I'm seeing "Authorization Failed".
This means you has you entered doesn't match any DayBack Online accounts. Please contact us
The "share" menu has "Share this view" greyed out.
This probably means you have't yet entered a User Token in step 4 above.
