Dynamics 365 Accountant Portal on a Phone

I already wrote about using Accountant Portal in Dynamics 365 for Financials. And now just imagine if you are accountant and your client call you about some very important information when you are out of office. Generally you have your phone in your pocket in almost all situation and as we know we have Dynamics NAV/365 App for iPhone, Android and WP.

Good information is that when you installed Accountant Portal extension, it is available on a Phone Client as well. And you will have the same features.

You will see the same basic information on a Phone Client as on the Web Client. When you click on your client, you will see more detailed information on whole page. and if you want to work with your client, system will continue opening your client instance.

Because you can run it not only from Phone Client, system will offer you to open it with your App and then you can continue with standard using Phone Client and all standard features. But depends of your phone, you have a link to check if your device is supported and to download App if you already didn’t.

Very easy and absolutely in the spirit of ‘Cloud first, mobile first’.

You will see that Phone Client looks awesome and everything works fine and smoothly. And you can use camera from your phone directly in NAV, for example for document capturing. But for this feature, you have to use this app from phone, because camera cannot be emulated from your browser.
