Join us for a free webinar titled Relevance Ranking, Web History and Search: Applying Web Methods to FileMaker. Searching for results in Google, usually finds what your looking for. Using a web history to find a site that you’ve visited is usually better than having a ‘back’ button, which is based on your current session. During this webinar, we will show some techniques, sample files, and commercial solutions that focus on solving these challenges with pure FileMaker.
This webinar will discuss:
- Adding ´record view history´ across multiple tables. This allows each user to see a list of recently-viewed records and navigate to them with a click. It’s simple to implement, and requires a triggered script, one table with just a few fields, and a portal to display records on your home screen.
- The elements of single-field search: Pre-process, Iterate, Rank, Display. We will examine these parts of fmSearchResults, a commercial program, and show how these ideas can be implemented into your solutions. This is not a sales pitch.
- Relevance rank system that learns. As users search for records, refine searches, and click results, Relevance metadata is stored about that interaction. The next time a similar search is done, the Relevance table is searched, and the related record is displayed. We will discuss the concept of short vs. long clicks, linking searches to results, and implementing these ideas into your solutions.
