Set up CRM for tablets

Applies To: CRM 2015 on-prem, CRM Online

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases.]

Your users are asking for Microsoft Dynamics CRM for tablets. Here’s the information you need as an admin to deploy and support Microsoft Dynamics CRM for tablets - the new set of tablet apps for Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Requirements for CRM for tablets

For hardware and software requirements for CRM for tablets, see Tablet support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 and CRM Online.

CRM for tablets can connect to both Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online organizations and Microsoft Dynamics CRM on-premises deployments. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online organizations using CRM for tablets require the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Fall ‘13 release or later.

ImportantImportant
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 or Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 on-premises deployments require Internet Facing Deployment (IFD) for users to access their data on their tablets. If you have your Microsoft Dynamics CRM website available over the internet but it is not using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM IFD configuration, it is not supported. To verify that your on-premises deployment is configured for IFD, open Microsoft Dynamics CRM Deployment Manager on your Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server. The Authentication Summary section should show that both Claims-Based Authentication and Internet-Facing Deployment are enabled. More information: Configure IFD for Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

CRM IFD settings

Microsoft Dynamics CRM uses a security privilege, Use CRM for tablets, to provide access to CRM for tablets. By default, this privilege is included for the following default security roles:

  • CEO-Business Manager

  • Salesperson

  • Sales Manager

  • Vice President of Sales

  • System Administrator

  • System Customizer

This applies to new installations of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015, as well as customers that upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011. You can add or remove this privilege from custom or default security roles to meet your business needs. If a user does not have this privilege, they will receive the following error:

You haven't been authorized to use this app. Check with your system administrator to update your settings.
noteNote
Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes the ability to audit user access. Audit events are logged if a user accesses your CRM organization through CRM for tablets. However, there is not a new event type that indicates the access was through CRM for tablets. The audit login events would appear as User Access via Web Services.

About CRM for tablets authentication

CRM for tablets authenticates users by using browser-based authentication, which means no credentials are stored on the tablet.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online

CRM for tablets users transitioned to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online on Microsoft Online Services environment will automatically renew their sign-in for up to 30 days.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 (on-premises versions)

CRM for tablets connections to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 require an Internet Facing Deployment.

noteNote
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 or Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 is required for CRM for tablets users to connect to their Microsoft Dynamics CRM organization. Organizations that are using earlier versions of on-premises editions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM will need to upgrade.

CRM for tablets supports the following languages:

When the application first loads after installation, it will determine the device language and load the user interface in that language. If the device language is not one of the supported languages, the application will load in English. Once the application has been configured in a Microsoft Dynamics CRM organization, the application will load in the language specified in the user’s personal options. If the user language is not one of the supported languages, the application will fall back to the base language of the CRM organization, if it is in the supported language list. If the organization’s base language isn’t supported, English will be the final fallback if it is enabled on the server.

What the admin needs to do

The first step to enable tablet device access to your Microsoft Dynamics CRM account is to set the Use CRM for tablets privilege in the appropriate security role for the users you want to have tablet device access.

  1. Go to Settings > Security. (How do I get there?)

  2. Choose Security Roles. Select the security role for the security role you want to give tablet access (for example, Salesperson). Then, choose the Business Management tab.

    Verify that Use CRM for tablets is set to Organization. If not, choose Use CRM for tablets.

  3. Choose Save and Close to save the changes to the security role.

  4. Send an email to the tablet-enabled users to let them know they can download the mobile app from the app store. Include the organization URL and sign-in information in the email.

Get your on-premises deployment ready for CRM for Windows 8.1 tablets

There are two CRM for tablets apps in the Windows store, one for Windows 8 and one for Windows 8.1. To deploy the CRM for Windows 8.1 app, review the following scenarios.

 

Scenario Admin action

You’re using Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Spring ‘14 or later.

None. You can skip the steps in this section. They apply only to on-premises Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

You’re using an on-premises version of CRM that is earlier than Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Update to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later and then follow the steps in this section.

You organization is running Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later.

Follow the steps in this section.

noteNote
If you need to delay updating to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later, your users can use the Windows 8 app.

Prior to your users installing the Windows 8.1 app, complete these steps:

  1. Make sure your CRM server is updated to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later.

  2. Update a registry setting on your mobile devices.

noteNote
If users have installed the CRM for Windows 8.1 app prior to you making these registry changes, they will need to restart the tablet app after the changes are complete.

If your mobile devices are managed - under the control of group policy - do the following:

CautionCaution
This task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, open the following link to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: How to back up and restore the registry in Windows.

  1. If you plan on using group policy to do a domain wide deployment of the registry change required and your server is not running Windows Server 2012 R2, download and install the Windows Server Administrative Templates.

  2. Open the Group Policy Management Editor.

  3. Select an existing policy or create a new policy.

  4. Go to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > App runtime and set Turn on dynamic Content URI Rules for Windows store apps to Enabled.

  5. Choose Show and add the URL for your organization. For example, https://orgname.contoso.com.

  6. Close the group policy editor and save your changes.

}
 

If your mobile devices are unmanaged, you can also change the registry on each Windows 8.1 device with the following steps:

  1. Start Registry Editor.

  2. Before making changes to your registry, you should make a backup. Choose File > Export and enter your settings.

  3. Locate the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies

  4. Right-click or tap policies, point to New, and then choose Key.

  5. Type Packages, and then press ENTER.

  6. Right-click or tap Packages, point to New, and then choose Key.

  7. Type Applications, and then save the text.

  8. Right-click or tap Applications, point to New, and then choose DWORD (32-bit) Value.

  9. Type EnableDynamicContentUriRules and then save the text.

  10. Right-click or tap EnableDynamicContentUriRules, and then choose Modify.

  11. Type 1 in the Value Data box, and then choose OK.

  12. Right-click or tap Applications, point to New, and then choose Key.

  13. Type ContentUriRules, and then save the text.

  14. Right-click or tap ContentUriRules, point to New, and then choose String Value.

  15. Type 1, and then save the text.

  16. Right-click or tap 1, and then choose Modify.

  17. Type your CRM organization’s URL in the Value Data box (for example, https://contoso.com), and then choose OK.

  18. Exit the Registry Editor.

    Now you can point your users to the Windows 8.1 app, so they can get the added functionality of the offline experience. More information: Help & Training: Install the CRM for tablets app

CRM for tablets now supports multiple dashboards. While the Sales dashboard remains the default dashboard, users can easily modify which dashboards appear and how they appear in CRM for tablets. You assign security roles to a dashboard so that the dashboard appears only to users with certain security roles. For example, to set who has access to the Sales Dashboard, choose Settings > Customizations > Customize the System > Components > Dashboards and select the Sales Dashboard. Then, choose Enable Security Roles.

If an entity is enabled for CRM for tablets and appears in the nav bar (sitemap) for the web application, then it will also appear on the nav bar in CRM for tablets.

The CRM for tablets app will show the entities as a flat list in the same order as the sitemap in the web application. It ignores any groupings within web application areas. You can add an entity to multiple groups on the web application, but CRM for tablets displays a flattened list and does not show any repeats. CRM for tablets applies your Microsoft Dynamics CRM security role, so you will not see an entity unless you have at least read access to that entity.

Custom entities use a fixed custom entity icon.

Video symbolVideo: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 for Tablets – Simple Lists

The lists of records that appear on the Sales Dashboard and within a form appear as simple lists. These lists have a different appearance than the typical view of records. There are a few frequently used actions you can perform on a simple list:

  • Tap the header of a list to access the full list for the current view.

  • Tap a list item to open the form for that item.

  • Tap and hold an item to display the command bar.

  • Tap the New Item button (+) to the right of the view name to create a new record of that type.

Note the following.

  • The New Item button (+) appears to the right of the view name for any entity type that is Read/Write enabled for CRM for tablets.

  • Simple lists retrieve ten records at a time regardless of the Records Per Page setting in your Personal Options area of the web application. As you scroll to the bottom of the list, CRM for tablets displays additional records.

Fields Displayed

A typical view of records displays all columns in the view definition. A simple list displays the first few columns from the selected view. Simple lists are also capable of displaying images for each record if the entity is enabled to display images.

CRM for tablets simple list

The number of fields displayed in the list is different depending on whether or not the entity is enabled for images. If the entity is enabled for images, the image is the first thing to appear. Next to the image the primary field for the entity is displayed first and will wrap up to 2 lines. The primary field is followed by the first 2 columns in the view that are not the primary field. Those fields will each appear on 1 line.

If the entity is not enabled for images, the primary field for the entity is displayed first. The primary field is followed by the first 3 columns in the view that are not the primary field.

There are a few special list types. The Activity, Stakeholders, and Sales Team lists are discussed in the next sections.

Activity Lists

The simple list for activities includes some special functionality that isn’t available on other lists. Each standard activity type (such as Phone call and Task) includes an icon to differentiate it from the other activity types. Next to the icon, the primary field for the activity is displayed and will wrap up to 3 lines. The next field to display is the first field from the view excluding the primary field, Due Date, and Activity Type. Activities that can be marked as complete will include a check box next to them. Simply tap the check box to mark the activity as complete.

The activities list displays activities that are due today and past due activities in a darker color. Activities that are not due today or past due appear in a lighter color. Activities with a due date will display the date and time of when they are due.

ImportantImportant
Microsoft Dynamics CRM uses a composite Activity entity to store and retrieve data common between different activity types (such as Task, Appointment, or Phone Call). The due date for activities is stored in the Actual End field for the composite Activity entity. Appointment activities have a Start Date and End Date. Because the due date for the activities list is retrieved from the Actual End field, the time that an appointment ends is displayed in the Activities list. This means that an appointment that starts at 1pm and ends at 2pm will show a time of 2pm on the tile for the appointment in the activity simple list.

CRM for tablets simple activity list

Note the following:

  • The Description field for emails will not appear in lists. This is because it may contain HTML.

  • For Activities, the New Item button (+) opens a flyout so you can select the type of activity to create. This flyout contains a list of all the read/write enabled activities.

Stakeholders and Sales Team Lists

The Stakeholders and Sales Team lists that appear within an Opportunity display the primary field and role. These two entity lists have inline create and editing. When you tap the New Item button (+) on these lists, the existing list items move down and a lookup and a drop-down list will become present. Now you can select (or create) an entity to add to the list through the lookup, and to assign a role through the drop-down list.

Stakeholders and sales team lists

Editing is an inline experience as well. If you tap the down arrow next to the role name, the drop-down list appears in edit mode and you can change roles.

Select View

To change the view used to display a list of records, tap and hold the name of the list. The command bar appears, which includes the Select View button. Tap the Select View button to select a different view.

Personal views are listed before system views. You can’t create new views within Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

All the charts you can create in the Chart Designer, such as Bar, Line, Pie, and Funnel charts, are viewable in CRM for tablets.

Note the following:

  • Open a chart from the Sales Dashboard to get a page with a chart and the records used to generate the chart.

  • Choose the chart sections to view the records filtered for that part of the chart.

  • Charts are not available when offline with CRM for tablets.

Forms in CRM for tablets are based on the development principle of “Design once and deploy across clients.” Entity behavior and business processes in CRM for tablets forms function similarly to forms in the web application, but with a flow tailored for a tablet.

Diagram shows Updated entity form structure in CRM

Microsoft Dynamics CRM for tablets takes many of the main form elements and presents them in a way that is optimized for tablets, as shown in the following diagram.

Diagram of a form in Dynamics CRM for tablets

Relationships

The Relationships area of the form displays entity relationships that are configured in the Navigation area of a form. If an entity relationship is configured to appear in the Navigation area within the form customization and the entity is enabled for CRM for tablets, the entity relationship will appear in the Relationships section. The Connections relationship tile is not displayed in CRM for tablets.

The relationships section also displays a tile to represent the owner of the record, which is a Lookup field. In addition to the Owner tile, there are some other examples of hardcoded tiles that represent Lookup fields. For example: The Contact form contains a tile to display the parent account. You cannot choose additional Lookup fields to be displayed as tiles in this section.

Note the following:

  • Forms in CRM for tablets are limited to 5 tabs (or 75 fields and 10 lists). This limit includes hidden fields.

  • Activity Feeds and Yammer are not supported in CRM for tablets.

Considerations and best practices for securing CRM data on CRM for tablets

Consider the following when planning security for CRM for tablets.

  • Data transmission. CRM for tablets requires an Internet-facing deployment (IFD) so when your organization’s mobile devices synchronize CRM data with your online or on-premises CRM, the data is encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

  • Cached data. CRM for tablets only caches records and lists that you’ve recently accessed in the app. To clear cached data, users can either sign out or reconfigure. More information: see “What’s the difference between sign out and reconfigure?” in Help & Training: Sign out or reconfigure CRM for tablets

  • Encrypting cached data. Cached data is not encrypted. You can use BitLocker to encrypt the entire hard drive on a Windows 8 device. For Apple and Android devices, consider Windows Intune or a product from another company to encrypt the hard drive on the mobile device.

Other features

Video symbolVideo: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 for Tablets – Charts, Search, and Tiles. Start at 2:29.

Search in CRM for tablets searches multiple entities. You can configure up to 10 entities to filter within your search. To select entities for search and the search order in CRM for tablets, choose Settings > Administration > System Settings > General tab. Under Set up Quick Find, choose Select.

Set up Quick Find for CRM for tablets

Configure multi-entity Quick Find settings

Entities in the Selected Entities list will appear in the multi-entity Quick Find results.

  • You can select entities from the Available Entities list and add them to the Selected Entities list by using the Add button.

  • You can select entities from the Selected Entities list and use the Remove button to prevent an entity from appearing in multi-entity Quick Find results.

  • You can select entities in the Selected Entities list and use the Move Up or Move Down buttons to change the order of the entities that appear in multi-entity Quick Find results.

Set up Quick Find entities

Configure which entities appear in multi-entity Quick Find results

noteNote
When you configure the list of entities for Quick Find, the list contains all entities and is not limited to those enabled for CRM for tablets. However, when CRM for tablets performs a multi-entity Quick Find, it filters out the entities that are not enabled for the mobile application.

Records are saved in CRM for tablets based on how you configured autosave in your organization settings. To view your save settings, choose Settings > Administration > System Settings > General tab. View the settings under Select the default save option for forms.

If autosave is:

  • Enabled for the organization, changes to forms are saved when users leave forms.

  • Disabled for the organization, users must use the command bar in CRM for tablets (swipe from the bottom of the screen) and choose Save to save form changes.

Images, such as contact photos, are not stored in the browser cache. Images may not be displayed when users work offline with CRM for tablets.
