Component: Events

Newer OS X event functions to work with events and reminders.

You may have events or todo items in your FileMaker database. Our plugin can help you sync them into the calendar database on Mac, e.g. create events and reminders into specific calendars. If one Mac has a calendar subscribed for each member of staff and those sync via iCloud/Google/Exchange to their mobile phones, your solution can push events or reminders to your staff on one central routine.

Require 64-bit application, so use with FileMaker 14 and newer.

On Server you can only use calendar functions if you got a calender for the user account where the server runs. Normally the server user account has no calendars.

Use this functions to sync events to iCal/Calendar app.

Please do not mix Calendar and Events calls as they use different IDs.
