RC2FM Connector is the brainchild of Automation USA, LLC and was developed as an effort to propel the FileMaker platform into the Cloud age.
As long term FileMaker developers, Claris Partners, and also RingCentral Partners, we saw a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between two worlds. RC2FM Connector is among the first FileMaker integrations of its kind.
With features like single tap/click dialing, 2-way SMS/MMS, 2-way e-faxing, call logging, and the ability to download and store voicemails, faxes, and call recordings inside FileMaker data containers, our integration lets RingCentral users manage all their call related activities from within their own custom app.
Our integration leverages RingCentral's REST APIs to quickly connect any RingCentral business phone system (PBX) to any compatible FileMaker custom application.
RC2FM Connector is also a 100% Cloud based microservice deployed on Amazon's AWS infrastructure, providing scalable, secure, and global availability.
Click/tap to call. Start an outbound call from any FileMaker supported device and pick up your call on any smart phone, desk phone, cordless, or RingCentral app.
Send and receive SMS and MMS messages right from FileMaker in near-real time.
Turn your FileMaker custom app into a full-fledged business messaging app. Just snap a photo and send using your business caller ID.
Download call history, store voicemails and call recordings as MP3s, and store faxes as PDFs (incoming and outgoing) inside container fields within your FileMaker custom app.
Send/receive digital Faxes directly into and out of
your FileMaker app's data containers.
Or select from your device's photo library or file system.
Your look and feel
RC2FM Connector is a backend service that offers no user interface. We provide the connectivity, you as a FileMaker developer provide the customized look and feel.
Our demo file template is merely an illustration of what's possible. You decide which features to implement and how they will behave.
Supports FileMaker Go
All RC2FM features are supported on FileMaker Go for iOS.
Supports FileMaker Pro
All RC2FM features are supported on FileMaker Pro/Advanced
Supports FileMaker WebDirect
All RC2FM features are supported on FileMaker WebDirect 16+, and most features are supported in older versions.
Supports FileMaker Cloud/Server
RC2FM has been 100% FileMaker Cloud and FileMaker Server compatible right from the start.
Compatible with all platforms
All RC2FM features run on all platforms where FileMaker offers a native client.
This includes iOS, macOS, and Windows.
Connect using FileMaker Scripts and store data in native FileMaker tables. Get started quickly by pasting scripts and tables from our sample file. It's as easy as 1-2-3.
RC2FM works natively on iOS because it needs no plugins. While plugins are great for extending functionality, they impose the use of Server or Desktop technology.
No CWP Coding
RC2FM requires no php coding or complicated CWP installations. RC2FM works great on apps that are not hosted, and it works even better on apps hosted on FileMaker Server.
We have invested in expanding our market by deploying RC2FM as a scalable Cloud integration available across multiple redundant regions on AWS. All you need is an Internet connection.
One low rate includes all standard features and functionality.
What's more, each user is allowed up to three (3) concurrent connections on three separate devices.
For example, a user may connect to RC2FM on an iPad, an iPhone and a Mac and count as just one (1) user.
I’ve seen other Date Night Question products. What’s different about the Marriage and Martinis ebook?
Most other conversation-starter books and cards for couples are just a collection of random questions with no context around them. The Marriage and Martinis’ Date Night Experience ebook is carefully crafted into 12 diverse topics, each of which has relatable anecdotes and background stories that come directly from the hit Marriage and Martinis podcast and real life situations, as well as complimentary bonding challenges meant to really tie everything together. It’s truly a fully engaged “experience” rather than a quick-paced lighting-style Q & A.
I love the concept, but I’m worried my partner will never agree to try it.
We hear this ALL THE TIME. Then, inevitably, we get tons of messages from these same people who are in shock at how much their partner enjoyed doing the questions. If your significant other likes to laugh, enjoys being praised and complimented, or likes to share stories about stuff in which they’re passionate, then we are quite certain there’s AT LEAST one topic that will get them hooked.
Why is it an ebook instead of an actual hard copy?
Ever find yourself in an instance that just “feels right” between you and your partner? You’re on the same wavelength and you could really make the most of that situation? We never know when this moment is going to present itself to have an important and intimate conversation. If you need a physical book every time you want to explore a new discussion or are in the mood to play a game together, then if you don’t have that item at that exact moment, that chance for the full potential of reconnection and bonding is lost. The ebook helps guide you through these conversations wherever you are, whenever it happens, even unexpectedly, since you can access them on your mobile device at any time, anywhere.
Can I give it as a gift?
Sure. You can purchase the ebook with your own email address. Then, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number and the word “Gift” in the subject line. Put the email address to which you want the ebook sent as well as the message you would like us to include to the person, and we will send an email with all the info and direct access to the ebook to the recipient on your behalf.
What types of topics are in the ebook?
I really want to try the ebook, but I’m afraid the questions will start a fight between my partner and me.
Trust us, we get it. Over the course of recording over 170 podcast episodes, we’ve definitely had some explosive fights, which led us to bring in experts so we could start to have these conversations more constructively. We of course still fight sometimes, but mostly, the discussions are productive, because the questions are constructive, gentle, and forgiving while still being open enough to embrace deep connection. We want you to have all of these same amazing bonding experiences, even though you probably don’t have a podcast. The ebook also offers strategies to make the most of these talks. Think of it as more than an ebook; it’s a toolkit to build the discussions you want and need to have.
Can these questions be answered on a double date or in a group?
Many of the topics absolutely can, and other topics can be rephrased or restructured easily to be used in so many different settings. Plus, you can use many of the questions as journal prompts or just as food for thought on your own. There are so many different scenarios in which these questions can be so useful. Answer some of them on a girls’ night out, at a dinner party, or to roast someone whose birthday it is. There are all kinds of possibilities that can come from this versatile collection of questions that you can access 24/7 straight from your phone, tablet, ipad or computer.
Are there other versions of the Date Night Questions Experience ebook?
Keep your eye out. We are working on follow up editions, including Parenting and DNQ After Dark. In the meantime, we hope you’ll take your time going through the first ebook and really savor each topic and experience.
