myFMbutler welcomes FMCalendar

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Great news today! SHpartners, our mothership, merged with La Source multimédia, a French FileMaker developer.
Together they have become ‘Lesterius’. myFMbutler is now part of the Lesterius Group.

myFMbutler will remain your platform for all FileMaker add-ons, tools and plug-ins. However, the merger also means myFMbutler will be able to enhance and extend its product portfolio in the future.


Day ViewToday we are already welcome ‘FMcalendar’, a graphical calendar for FileMaker 13.

FMCalendar doesn’t require plug-ins or external web resources to work and that runs on FileMaker Go, FileMaker Pro and FileMaker WebDirect.

FMCalendar is the coolest way to manage and render events in your FileMaker database. You can manage as many calendars as you want and interact with the graphic rendering on your event's data. A true iCal user experience in your database.

Simple and documented code. Only 5 tables, 1 layout, few custom functions and calculated fields. Just copy and paste FM Calendar into your solution or link your database to FM Calendar. And with a little knowledge of HTML/CSS, you can customize the display.

More information can be found on our website.

FileMaker Hosting

Since April 16th 2013, we have been offering FileMaker hosting services. All FileMaker Hosting will now be handled by FM Connection.

FM Connection is a division of the Lesterius Group and offers various hosting packages, fully tailored to your needs.

Check the FM Connection website for more information about their hosting plans.

We are really exited about this merger. We are now expanding our developer network in Europe and this will undoubtedly create some great opportunities and surely some nice new products.

We hope to get back to you soon with more news.

myFMbutler will again be attending DevCon in July and hope to meet some of you there.
