fmSMS and FileMaker WebDirect.

fmSMS v3.5 and later supports FileMaker WebDirect (fmSMS will need to be hosted with FileMaker Server v13/14 to use WebDirect, a new feature in FileMaker Server v13). The messages are sent from FileMaker Server using a server side script that you schedule, or if you are using FileMaker Server v13 or later you can use the Perform Script on Server script step to have them sent immediately (this is the recommended option that we use in the fmSMS file).

When you open fmSMS with FileMaker WebDirect you will navigate to specific layouts for the web browser access. We’ve added support for viewing Contacts and sending Messages with FileMaker WebDirect – additional support can be easily added as required, for example to view Replies, Delivery Receipts or send a bulk SMS to a found set of Contacts.

In order to use fmSMS with FileMaker WebDirect make sure you’ve followed the steps in the FileMaker Server Side Sending guide for allowing plugins to be used and installed on the server.
