Open forms, views, and dashboards in Dynamics 365 mobile client with a URL


Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

Use the new application handler for Dynamics 365 mobile clients to directly link to Dynamics 365 forms, views, and dashboards from external applications so that when you click on the link in an external application, the target element opens in Dynamics 365 for phones or Dynamics 365 for tablets. You can also open an empty form for creating an entity record.

If you are already signed in to your Dynamics 365 instance in Dynamics 365 for phones or Dynamics 365 for tablets, the target record is displayed in the mobile client when you click the link in external application. Otherwise, you’re prompted to sign in to your Dynamics 365 instance in the Dynamics 365 mobile client, and upon doing so, the target element is displayed. You must have Dynamics 365 for phones or Dynamics 365 for tablets installed on your mobile device to use this feature.
