<p>Technology Previews now available at www.filemaker.com.au/tiger</p>
<p>SYDNEY - June 7, 2005 – As Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference opens in the US, FileMaker has announced the immediate availability of the new FileMaker Datagraph Widget, a Mac OS X “Tiger” feature that provides bar graph views of FileMaker Pro based data via the new Mac OS X Dashboard. The company also announced the immediate availability of a set of new FileMaker Automator Actions for use by FileMaker users and developers to easily create a Workflow of FileMaker scripts. FileMaker is introducing both FileMaker Datagraph and FileMaker Automator Actions as Technology Previews now available at www.filemaker.com.au/tiger.</p>
<p>FileMaker Datagraph Widget, designed for anyone who can benefit from a visual interpretation of their FileMaker 7 data, lets “Tiger” OS users get bar graph views (up to five bars based on up to five fields of data) of their database records. For example, a Tech Support Manager can instantly check on customer service call transactions in real time (how many customers currently being served and how many customer cases have been closed) using the new FileMaker Datagraph Widget. With a glance at the FileMaker Datagraph bar graph on the Tiger OS Dashboard, an Accounts Payable clerk can immediately see the status of paid or unpaid invoices.</p>
<p>The FileMaker Automator Actions allow a FileMaker 7 user to easily create custom Workflows by dragging items from the Automator Actions Library to the Automator window. A set of Automator Actions based on common FileMaker scripts (such as Perform Script, Show All Records, Close Database, etc.) are provided. Publish to InDesign Pict Frames and Publish to InDesign Text Frames Automator Actions are also provided to simplify exporting data to Adobe’s popular Indesign Creative Suite design and publishing environment. Once a Workflow is created it can be saved for subsequent access or modification.</p>
<p>“The new Datagraph Widget takes advantage of the power of the Tiger Dashboard, giving developers and users instant insight into FileMaker data,” said Steve McManus, General Manager Asia Pacific, FileMaker Inc. “And FileMaker Automator Actions deliver new ways to automate routine FileMaker functions.”</p>
