Troi Plug-in power for FileMaker | All products

The Activator Plug-in can trigger a script on a different computer, even over internet. Ever wanted to tell other users you changed their appointment or ask someone to get out of a record? Now you can with this plug-in! You can also trigger events at scheduled times or when exiting a field. Or use as an image upload server. FMP17 through FMP2023 compatible.

Start a FileMaker script on a different computer. Or trigger scripts on the same computer, from any FileMaker calculation (for example a tooltip calculation), on a specified date and time or after exiting a field. This plug-in also has a built-in HTTP(S) server, which lets you trigger a script by sending a URL. Or use it as an Image Upload Server: it can receive uploaded images for example from an iOS device, including GPS coordinates.

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Very rarely do I go to any effort to write someone a thank-you note when I purchase their software. However, this time, it certainly warrants it. Your plug-in, “Activator” has saved me – literally – hundreds of hours and an immense amount of heartache in my runtime solution, which is a massive relational system for managing flight operations at one of Canada’s busiest airports.
The activator script allows me to simply forward requests through to other systems where they can be parsed and acted upon, without having to contend with establishing relationships, multi-user issues, or any of that stuff.
Thank-you Soooooo much for this plugin!”

Stephen Grant, Toronto, Canada

You need this plug-in if you want data to be safe! FMP16 through FMP2023 compatible.

Encrypt text or container fields, using the powerful 256-bit AES encryption scheme, so that your sensitive data is secure. Export encrypted data and send it safely over internet.
