Account Manager 2.0 for FM
FM::Nexus today shipped Account Manager 2.0, which allows administrators of FileMaker databases to centrally manage multiple servers, databases, users and privileges. Featuring new notification capabilities. it simplifies administration by facilitating centralized account management of multiple databases without requiring direct modification of each disparate database. New notification features let database administrators automatically broadcast messages to end-users or a subset of end-users. In addition, administrators can automate broadcast notifications to alert for upcoming events such as scheduled maintenance, to alert for account status changes, the completion of account setup, etc. Account Manager also tracks login information and provides comprehensive reporting. It requires FileMaker 8 and is priced starting at $250 for 25 end-user accounts (free to any FileMaker developer for use with up to 7 end-user accounts).
