How to use the web client on multiple devices in Business Central?

The web client makes it possible for us to open this Business Central on many devices.

This is what happens in the video

With named users, we can be logged in simultaneously on many devices.

So any device that has a web browser will be able to log on to the Business Central.

When logged on in a web client on a desktop, the layout is optimized for the desktop mode, which we can see if we open a sales order.

Here, we can see all of our data nice and easy, but let me show that it’s also possible to open this web browser on a phone.

Here, I’m logged in to the web browser on my phone.

As my screen is very small, we can see that it’s squeezed quite tightly together.

If I open the sales order, as I did on my desktop, we can here see the same information as we did in the desktop mode.

But this was of course designed to be shown on a bigger screen like on my desktop.

By installing an app that is optimized for the view on my phone, I can edit my sales order.

Let me show you.

Here, I have logged in to the Business Central app.

I press on the sales order, find the sales order that I want to edit, press on the edit button, add a new line, and type in the item number that I want to add to the order.

Adding the quantity.

And now the line has been added to my sales order.

If I go back to my desktop mode, and refresh the order, I can now see that the new item has been added to my document.

This makes it possible for me to work in the system on several devices.
