Opening Curator Pro

February 16, 2015 |

Here’s a guide on how to open Curator Pro from one of our cloud based servers.

What you’ll need:

Once we’ve uploaded your file, we’ll let you know the domain name, and the user account details for your file. If you don’t have these yet, you can follow the instructions as shown below and user the username ‘demo’ and password ‘demo’.

You’ll also need a copy of Filemaker Pro version 13 or later, already installed on your computer.

 

1) Open Filemaker Pro, and choose the File>Open Remote option.

2)

Select ‘Favorite Hosts’ from the ‘View’ option, and then click the ‘Add’ button.

Now you need to enter in the name we provide you with into the ‘Host’s Internet Address:’ box. If you’re after the demo file, you can just enter ‘curatordemo.curatorpro.net’

Enter in any memorable name you want into the ‘Favorite Host’s Name’ box

Finally, click ‘Save’

 

3) You’ll be prompted for a username and password here. When you purchase Curator Pro, you’ll define what account names and passwords you want to use, or for the demo, just you ‘demo’ for both Account Name and Password:

Remember to click ‘Remember this password in my keychain (on a mac)’ to store this password on your computer for next time.

4) You’ll then see your file in the ‘Available Files’ box. Select the file, click ‘Add to Favorites’, and then click ‘Open’

 

You’ll be prompted for the same username and password again, enter these in, select the option to remember those credentials, and the file will open. Hooray!
