Support for CRM for phones and CRM for tablets

Published: December 16, 2014

Applies To: CRM 2015 on-prem, CRM Online

You can access Microsoft Dynamics CRM data from mobile devices in different ways. Apps for Windows 8, Apple, and Android mobile devices are available to run Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015. Alternatively, CRM can be accessed using the device’s preferred browser for those devices described here. Devices not specifically mentioned here can typically use CRM for phones express.

CRM Online 2015 Update 1 introduces a new version of CRM for phones that’s based on and shares much of the features of CRM for tablets. To use this new version of CRM for phones, you must be running CRM Online 2015 Update 1. If you’re not running CRM Online 2015 Update 1, or you wish to use the previous phone app – now called CRM for phones express– see Set up CRM for phones express.

noteNote
Tablet support requires Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Fall ‘13 or later, or Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 or later.

For on-premises deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015, the mobile apps require an Internet-facing deployment of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server that uses claims-based authentication.

The mobile apps are compatible with the devices and operating systems that they are specifically designed for. These apps may not be compatible with other mobile devices such as smartphones or other tablet devices that are not listed in this documentation.

Accessing Microsoft Dynamics CRM from a web browser on an Apple or Android mobile device provides a similar experience to accessing from a web browser on a desktop or laptop computer. However, some features are not available, including:

  • Yammer

  • Reports

  • Customization/Editors

  • System Settings

  • Advanced Find

  • Process dialogs

  • Lync presence

  • Adding attachments to Notes - for Apple iPad users with Microsoft Dynamics CRM (on-premises).

  • Entities that use classic forms such as Goal and Order Product. See Entities using classic forms.

Support for CRM for phones

CRM for phones can connect to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online 2015 Update 1. It cannot be used with Microsoft Dynamics CRM on-premises deployments or earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online.
