FileMaker Pro is database software for Windows, Mac, and the web. Users with little database experience can choose from 16 templates, called Starter Solutions, to get started quickly with tasks like contact management, event management, and registration. Databases can also be created from existing spreadsheets.
This donation includes one user license.
Benefits for Organizations
With little prior database experience, you can create databases for:
- Tracking volunteer data
- Managing mailing lists
- Maintaining donor information
- Managing grants and funding
- Creating and managing surveys
- Import existing data: FileMaker Pro can import data from .CSV, Tab, XML, ODBC, Microsoft Excel, and Bento files.
- Large file sizes: Database files can be up to 8 TB in size, and individual fields can hold up to 2 GB of data.
- Multimedia support: Database fields can include documents, images, audio, and video.
- Data search: Every database layout can include a Quick Find field, and you can choose which fields Quick Find searches in that database.
- Reports and charts: The Layout/Report Assistant helps you build reports based on 40 predefined themes. FileMaker's charts can display data in the form of bar, line, area, and pie charts, with a choice of fonts, styles, colors, and backgrounds.
File Format Change with Version 12
FileMaker Pro 12 is not compatible with files created in previous versions. You can convert files from previous versions to the version 12 format with FileMaker Pro 12.
Network and Web Access
Over a network, up to nine licensed users can access the same database file simultaneously. You can also share databases on the web with up to five simultaneous users through Instant Web Publishing. These users don't need licenses unless they create databases or run reports. If you need simultaneous access for more than nine users, FileMaker Server 12 allows access for up to 250 users.
