NEW: 360Works Releases Zulu 4 for FileMaker Calendar Sync Improvements
360Works

New Major Version, 360Works Zulu 4
NOW AVAILABLE!

360Works is proud to announce the release of Zulu 4. Zulu is an application that keeps your calendar events in sync with FileMaker records. It is able to sync with Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, and Exchange Outlook Calendar.

You can manipulate the events in your calendar, and Zulu will write these changes to FileMaker records. The opposite is also true, updates to FileMaker records will be written to your calendar's events. Zulu will even respect the record level access privileges and record locking in FileMaker so you can filter records based on privilege set.

Zulu 4 is better for business! It allows you to integrate your business workflows into the well known calendar interfaces your users are already using on their devices. With the click of a link, a user can subscribe to a new calendar powered by your FileMaker solution.

New Features:

  • Apple Reminder Support - manage your Apple Reminders from FileMaker! Use alarms to control native iOS notifications. Use time based alarms to remind people of certain tasks. Take advantage of location based reminders, trigger a notification when a user arrives at a job site, or when leaving. Track completion of reminders, and track when the reminder has been seen by the user.
  • One click URL calendar subscriptions, making it easier than ever to onboard new users.
  • Improved publishing page - some users like Apple Calendar, but some are only on Google? No problem! Drive all calendars from FileMaker. We rewrote the publish page and reworked the publishing process entirely inside of FileMaker.
  • Filter using the same methods provided by calendars, making assigning tasks to users as easy as assigning events!
  • Minimum start date for Exchange and Google supported, so you don't need to worry about ancient events crowding your FileMaker solution.

Zulu is easy to install. It is not a plug-in but rather an extension for FileMaker Server. There are no scripts to write or processes to manage. Integrating Zulu into your solution is a snap!
