Billing Nightmare

  • By Steven
  • on 10/26/2017

Don't buy this product. If you have billing issues AWS, Filemaker and Orbitera will all tell you it's the other company's issue. I purchased this product and got billed both annually and hourly. And extra $500 in bills so far. I also purchases an SSL certificate that never came. When I called Filemaker for help they told me they don't support what I purchased??? I have no idea how that can be since I purchased it form their online store using their Filemaker Cloud admin panel.

Buyer beware!!!

There are traps in buying and using the software

  • By Dubious procedurs and traps
  • on 10/17/2017

Spent many hours to get clear with the different procedures. I purchased an annual fee after I had correctly terminated the trial in August. According notifications that AWS instance t2.small should be upgraded I followed the link and ordered an upgrade to t2.medium but did not realize that the subscription rate automatically was set to hourly. That means more then USD 1.000 to pay for the use of the software in September. By (good) support I was told the only way to escape the trap is to buy another annual license for t2.medium but I would receive a refund of the sum I paid for t2.small in August. Such proceedings are not a good way to have satisfied customers!

Free trial within 15days , but I am charged up to 93.5USD for few days testing

Free trail for 5-user Filemaker cloud, I did a test, and to see whether good enough before green-light. But after few days testing, and Yesterday I found I am charged USD93.5 in AWS just for these few days. I contacted AWS, he said I have to contact Workplace seller, and sent me "seller product webpage". Unfortunately, the page say "no refund", and you can cancel subscription anytime......No idea what happen. I wish I could attach screenshots here. Frustrated......

Be Careful how to setting up trial account

  • By 1Cloud

Do not select annual pricing if you want a trial only, you will be presented with a years charge. Although the reverse of the bill was ok due to helpful support, it takes time and the process is confusing!

Hard to deploy, hard to use

  • By D. Wilson
  • on 06/24/2017

It's terribly difficult to actually deploy this software. There are so many issues that it just isn't worthwhile. But when we did succeed at deploying it, it was such poor quality software that I don't understand why anyone would pay these sorts of rates for the hourly nor annual subscription. I think you'll want this if you're already stuck with FileMaker. If you're not an existing FileMaker user, just steer clear.

Nightmare

  • By John Do

I bought FM Cloud it was running great.
I then got gauged by the hourly pricing scheme.
I then updated to an annual subscription.
I restored my data to a backup.
Everything was erased.
My Instance is running somewhere but nobody can access it not even filemaker.

Does not work with FM Pro

  • By Disappointed
  • on 12/31/2016

Warning to those with FM Pro only. The cloud doesn't work so don't waste your time. You must have encrypted databases. You can only encrypt them with FM Pro Advanced.

Also, I went thru the entire setup process - prepare for some pain. It's not intuitive. You'll figure it out after searching the web for answers as FM's help is not helpful, but it will take many different sources.

Poor support

Set-up took some time, and not well documented. Then could not connect... a complete flop. If you're not a IT expert, don't expect to get very far with this. Great idea, but poor delivery.
