Opening the Business Central Tablet or Phone Client from a Browser

You can open the Business Central tablet client or the Business Central phone client by using a browser from a device that has a network connection. This can make it easier to test your solution during the design phase.


The steps in this article illustrates how you can open the Business Central tablet client in a browser. The syntax and options for opening Business Central phone client in a browser are the same; just replace tablet with phone in the examples later in this section.

  1. Open the web browser.

  2. In the address box of the browser, type one of the following URLs.

    To open URL Example
