We are excited to be hosting the next Marin DIG FM meeting where Alexey Dubov will explore implementing Push notifications using a FileMaker platform. Alexey will demonstrate sending a calendar event to a remote user, opening different databases and different layouts, and even a specific record via push notification using two-factor authentication. He will also explore the Push notification plugin for iOS SDK app. 

soSIMPLE Calendar is an extremely versatile and easy-to-integrate calendar for FileMaker®-based solutions.
