Sets which script to call when a new call is detected.
The parameter to your script will be the reference number of the call as defined by our plugin. You can then use TAPI.CallInfo and other functions to query information.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.

Notice: FileMaker 19.2 adds a fmplugin extended privileges. If you have such an extended privileges to allow the plugin to trigger scripts, you need to grant permissions for it. If such a privilege is not defined, the plugin is allowed to trigger scripts. See FileMaker product documentation for details.


Set the script to trigger for new calls:

Set Variable [ $r; Value:MBS("TAPI.SetNewCallScript"; Get(FileName); "NewCallScript") ]
