It’s been a while since we last updated everyone about how we’re progressing with the BookingPOINT / FileMaker 15 compatibility issue.
Back in September, we discovered a serious issue with FileMaker 15 that unfortunately caused compatibility issues in BookingPOINT.
To cut a long story short, the calendar did not show booking information correctly. Bookings were shown either randomly at wrong dates / times, or not at all.
We’ve advised customers not to use FileMaker Pro 15 and to stick with FileMaker 12, 13, or 14 for the time being.
You can read more about the issue in our Blog post here: BookingPOINT FileMaker 15 incompatibility
The issue was caused by changes to FileMaker 15. We hoped that FileMaker will resolve the issue with subsequent updates, but this unfortunately hasn’t helped.
We’ve taken the matter into our own hands and have been working really hard on correcting the issue ever since we discovered it. We’ve spent a significant amount of time rewriting a big chunk of the BookingPOINT calendar in order to make it compatible with FileMaker 15.
Unfortunately this has taken way longer than we hoped.
Every time we thought we had a workable solution, we’d run into some sort of issue that prevented us from using the solution and ended up back at the drawing board. We probably experimented with well over 15 different potential solutions.
After months and months of headaches, cursing, and lots of hard work, I’m happy to report that we are very close to releasing a new version that is compatible with FileMaker 15.
In fact, the new version sports some nice new features that I know you’ll love and we’re excited to finally release it sometime soon.
Unfortunately we still don’t have a release date just yet as there’s still some more work to be done. But, we are very, very close.
We thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to brining you our next much anticipated release very soon.
Have a nice day.
