Bento Template Exchange Showcases Real-World Uses and Downloadable Templates

  • 17 June, 2009 18:12

<p><i>Templates demonstrate the versatility of popular personal database for Mac</i></p>
<p>FileMaker, Inc. today unveiled the Bento Template Exchange, where Mac users can post and browse many real-world uses of Bento, the personal database from FileMaker that’s as easy to use as a Mac. People interested in Bento can even download templates and use them with a trial or full version of Bento 2.</p>
<p>A Bento template is a pre-designed database form, but without any data. A visitor who downloads, for example, the “My Wine Cellar” template, has a beautiful ready-to-use wine tracking form -- complete with fields for winery, vintage, price and more -- and can enter data for their own wine collection – or copy and paste existing information from spreadsheets such as Excel or Numbers. Plus, templates can be customized to meet each individual’s unique needs.</p>
<p>“Bento excels at helping you organize virtually anything. And thanks to Bento’s capability to export and share templates, the template exchange showcases a wide range of creative and productive real-world uses,” said Steve McManus, Regional Manager, FileMaker, Inc – Asia Pacific. “Whether your passion is collecting coins, selling products, organizing volunteers or planning events, these sharable templates show how you can do it better with Bento.”</p>
<p>Visitors to the Bento Template Exchange can browse through the most popular templates, the newest templates, or look through 15 categories including Business, Music and Movies, Finance, and Cooking, Food and Wine. Templates are also searchable by typing a phrase like “soccer team roster.”</p>
<p>The Bento Template Exchange includes clear instructions on how to download and import templates, and how to submit Bento templates for sharing. Bento customers are encouraged to share their templates on the Bento Template Exchange to help potential customers imagine their own uses for Bento.</p>
<p><b>Importing and exporting Bento templates requires Bento 2.</b></p>
<p>Visitors will find that downloaded templates are usable with the new Bento for iPhone and iPod touch, if they synch with Bento on the Mac.</p>
