FileMaker Go Training Tool

Richard Carlton Consulting is pleased to announce the immediate availability of their FileMaker Go Training Tool.

The FileMaker Go Training Tool is designed to help both new and seasoned FileMaker Developers learn the functional differences between FileMaker Pro (for the desktop) and FileMaker Go (for the iPhone and iPad).  While FileMaker Go is fundamentally FileMaker, it does have certain limitations and new capabilities that are specific to iOS – the iPhone and iPad operating systems – as well as inherent limitations associated with mobile devices.  In short, this Training Tool will help you learn about the FM Go functionalities and help you finish the job in a fraction of the time!

“We developed the FileMaker Go Training Tool as a way of helping our internal staff of twenty-six FileMaker developers rapidly learn the ins and outs of FileMaker Go.  However, it soon became obvious that the tool would be appreciated by the FileMaker community as a whole,” continues Richard Carlton, CEO of RCC, “Therefore, we are making this available immediately as a free download from the RC Consulting website.”

You can download the FileMaker Go Training Tool for free here! 

We anticipate numerous updates to the FM Go training tool, so be sure to check back frequently to download the updated versions!

RCC is pleased to announce the immediate availability of FileMaker Starting Point 3, tuned specifically for FileMaker 12.


FM Starting Point 3 contains all of the great features and capabilities of previous versions, but also features an improved user interface with the upgraded capabilities of FileMaker 12.  FM Starting Point 3 has full support for the iPad, in that all layouts created for the desktop have also been optimized for the iPad.  Because the iPad version of FileMaker is now completely free, there is no reason not to download and try FM Starting Point.
