FM KickStart offers FileMaker templates free for download FM KickStart. For a more extensie FileMaker CRM we suggest: Azor FileMaker CRM. Offering a base of useful functionality on which developers can easily build new functionality, modules and fu nctions. Faster result with FileMaker Templates (for free). Why use FileMaker templates? FM Starting Point is the Free and Unlocked CRM for the FileMaker Platform, and is focused on small businesses, work groups, and non-profit organizations. These templates were built with the experience gained from working with these target groups for over 28 years.

Some History… First FileMaker had Sample files. Then they created Starter files. Now they are called Templates. Sample files and starter files can be found in FileMaker’s menu. Templates are on the FileMaker website and are available for download along with their associated video tutorials.

The FileMaker Training Series book is also a good resource that includes sample files, but it has not been updated since FileMaker 15.

Notably, older sample/starter files are built to be good demos and easy to understand, but are not built using FileMaker development best practices. Modern Templates do tend to employ best practices. They use Anchor Buoy and have better documentation.

There are some downsides to FileMaker starter solutions:

  • They create data silos that don’t talk to each other
  • Each has a different user interface
  • They are mostly learning examples, and not practical for real-world usage
  • Multiple files add complexity in maintenance and user management

The “FileMaker off the Record” podcast on 3rd Party Starter Files discusses some of the differences between the following starter solutions:

  • fmIgnite Starter from LuminFire
  • FM Starting Point from RCC Consulting
  • FM Kickstart from Kempen Automatisering
  • FM QuickStart from DB Services
  • Karbon from Geist Interactive

LuminFire’s fmIgnite framework for FileMaker development is an excellent choice among those available. Learn more here:
