Cloud Specific - Mac OS X

Unlike PC users, it is harder for Mac users to forget they are using FileMaker from one of our cloud servers due to the Windows interface used. However, with the wide adoption of Parallels Desktop and VMWare Fusion, this will not new to many people.

The following highlights some of the features Mac users need to consider when moving to the cloud:

Windows Interface >>

Viewing Options >>

Importing and Exporting Data >>

Printing >>


FileMaker allows the sending of emails using the Send Mail command available in the File menu or as a script step. Unfortunately, at the current stage of development of the Citrix XenApp software it is not possible to pass this instruction from cloud based FileMaker to your local email client.

However, if this is essential to your system, please contact us as we can offer alternatives to the standard FileMaker Send Mail feature.

Web Browsing

As the delivery method for viruses has shifted from email towards web pages, only limited use of Filemaker's own Web Viewer is allowed on our shared cloud servers. XenApp will redirect web address links to your own browser, so web addresses held within your databases can be launched locally on your own Mac.

Other Issues

We welcome reports of other differences or issues discovered, so that we can expand the information on this page.
