One of my clients just asked me if it was possible to have an event save to multiple sources. I told them it was unlikely to do that but said I would ask. :D

Hi Jim,

Since DayBack is actually saving the record details directly in an off-screen FileMaker layout, you could potentially save the details to multiple records. When you submit a change to an event, or create a new event on the calendar, the "Submit Event From WebViewer" script is called from the WebViewer. In that script, the details are passed to the "Create Edit Delete Event" script where all the work to save the events happens.

You could modify the "Submit Event From WebViewer" script to perform the "Create Edit Delete Event" script a second time, applying the changes to a different source and event id (passed as parameters). You would also want to call the "Refresh Event On Calendar" script for each updated event, similar to how we do in the modifications for cascading events, described here: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=4221

And if you'd like help with these customizations, we offer implementation packages so we can do some screen-sharing with you, or have you send over the files so we can implement the customizations for you. Packages can be used for consulting, coaching, or modifications like these and start at blocks of 3 hrs for $190/hr. When the time comes, you can use this link and, with a day or two notice, we can schedule some time to work with you: ... onpackages
