Tutorial Description

By popular demand, this weeks show is all about Bento by FileMaker.

Bento is a very flexible and elegant database package that many people consider to be the application that was missing from iWork.

It's a very powerful application that harnesses the power of database creation and sophisticated data manipulation in a very stylish and easy to use package - the epitome of a mac application!

As well as allowing you to create your own databases (or libraries in Bento terminology) from scratch or via imported data, Bento also gives you direct access to your Address book data, along with your iCal tasks and events to design your own forms to view and manipulate your data. Eye candy is plentiful with the use of pre designed themes and the ability to create your own special views of your data via easily customisable forms.

This weeks show takes you through the basics of Bento and even if you've no database experience, should give you enough information to start creating your own databases with ease.

The show is an Extra members show and covers:

  • Introduction to Bento
  • The Bento Interface
  • Core Concepts - Libraries and Collections
  • Address Book Integration
  • Records & Table View
  • Form Views
  • Creating a Library
  • Adding Fields
  • Form Customisation
  • Themes
  • Advanced Find
  • Smart Collections

More than enough to get you started! This is the first of a two part show on Bento and we'll look at some of the more advanced features in part two.
