FileMaker's WebDirect technology drastically simplifies the development of complex web applications.

WebDirect interfaces deliver desktop-style interaction with FileMaker databases to workgroup users via
standard Safari, Chrome, or Edge web browsers running on workstations, laptops, or mobile devices.



The WebDirect client runs entirely in the browser using standard HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and SSL.

Licensed users with a compatible web browser, internet access, and sufficient authentication can
connect to databases to create, view, edit, sort, and search records or run scripted processes.

In addition to providing pixel-level control over interface design, WebDirect lets businesses...

- write custom calculations, functions, scripts, and script triggers that encapsulate complex tasks
- define authentication and security permissions to determine data access and available functionality
- calculate and execute scripted GET and POST queries that interact with SQL databases and REST APIs
- utilize native parsing methods to extract data returned from queries back to FileMaker calculations
- securely share up to 125 custom interfaces over the web with groups of up to 250 users

An extraordinary solution development platform, starting under $1.00/user/day for 5 licensed users.
