Introduction to Tap Forms 5 Class

September 16, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Are you curious on how a database can help you? Have you used Filemaker Pro or Bento and you are looking for a new solution? Attend my class on Tap Forms 5! Tap Forms 5 is an easy to use database, that packs some power features. I’ll be going over some of what you can do with Tap Forms 5 in this class. I’l be showing you on the mac, but Tap Forms 5 is also available for the iPad and iPhone.

Tip: If you are not sure what you can do with a database, I recommend you skip to the 2nd chapter where I build a database to manage books within 10 minutes. This database has dates, you can mark if you’ve read the book, give it a rating, and add a genre through a pick list that comes from a linked or related form.

Some of what covered include:

  • What is a Database?
  • Comparing databases to Spreadsheets
  • Creating Forms
  • Adding Fields
  • Creating Layouts
  • Viewing Records
  • Creating Pick Lists
  • Saving Searches
  • Relating or linking forms (tables) together
  • Viewing your databases on an iPad
  • Syncing databases

See how easy it is to use a database!

Note: I am unaffiliated with the developer of this app. I am just a big fan of databases and love FileMaker Pro and their older Bento program. Filemaker Pro is costly and overkill for consumers, while Bento was discontinued years ago. This is a nice solution that can bridge that gap, so I just want to let people know about it. 🙂
