While some solutions will work as is, most solutions will need some time optimizing. Contact us if you need us to go over your layouts or optimize your solution for Web Direct.

WEBDIRECT—WHAT PREPARATION IS REQUIRED
It is imperative that solutions have layouts optimized for web direct for a great user experience. We DO NOT recommend converting an older version of FileMaker file to 13 and uploading it to a server. You WILL create a slow and painful experience and can compromise our server and other files.
If you need a file to be hosted that is not optimized, we recommend you sign up for a dedicated server. Please contact us for pricing.
Follow the guidelines below for optimizing your file:
- Clean up layouts (minimize objects on the layouts)
- Create new layouts for Web Direct
- Use themes (to keep it lightweight)
- Make the web direct layouts follow a workflow.
