How To Optimize FileMaker Unstored Calculation Functions

There's always room for improvement and that certainly applies to custom app development. We've discussed some of the things to watch out for when designing our custom FileMaker apps, such as how to deploy them efficiently when we access FileMaker remotely and improve the performance of record creation and modification. Mitigating these bottlenecks alone can transform our trusty old commuter cars into the hot rods we've always dreamed of. But even the best-oiled machines might need some internal reengineering from time to time to continue humming down the road.

Accelerate How We Access FileMaker Remotely

In the previous article, we chatted about speeding up record creation and modification within our FileMaker applications. As we said, there's no one size fits all way to make an exotic supercar out of a minivan. However, there are ways to make that minivan corner smoothly and stop quickly and maybe even take off from the line like a dragster.

In this article, we're going to focus on ways to mitigate bottlenecks when we access our FileMaker apps remotely. Due to the pandemic, many of our users are accessing hosted apps from home. Of course, we do this over the internet, also referred to as a Wide Area Network (WAN). When we connect to the network at the office, that is typically a Local Area Network (LAN), which usually offers faster speed than a WAN.
