Business value

Users need a simple and familiar way to access the Business Central web application from across Office 365.

Feature details

Previously, customers operating both production and sandbox environments could use two separate Business Central tiles to access the Business Central web client from another Office application.

The sandbox tile has been removed from both the app launcher and the Office home portal. Instead, both of these places display only one tile as the means to access the Business Central web client.

The app launcher showing a single Business Central tile.

The Office home screen showing a single Business Central tile.

When the change is rolled out to your region, the previous tiles may continue to display for a few more days.

For customers operating more than one environment, users accessing Business Central from the tile will be able to pick from production or sandbox environments before proceeding.
