Control script steps

Control script steps control the progression of the script by letting you tell FileMaker Pro exactly what to do when and if specific conditions occur.

Use these script steps to:

  • call scripts and sub-scripts
  • pause and resume a script, based on defined conditions
  • conditionally perform script steps using if/then/else logic
  • stop a script before it's finished, if a specific condition is met
  • create loops that repetitively carry out a sequence of steps in a script, until a condition is met
  • commit a set of record changes as a single transaction
  • call a script at a specified interval or when an iOS or iPadOS device enters or exits a region
  • queue or clear a local notification and perform a script after the user interacts with the notification
  • control whether alert messages are suppressed and whether errors are logged
