Post Author: HCLTech |

Working on the go presents a unique set of benefits and challenges. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 includes some great new features designed to optimize and address some of the user adoption issues previously found on mobile. These features increase the user experience for Microsoft Dynamics CRM apps for both tablet and phone users. As we mentioned in a previous blog post, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Online Update 1 introduced a brand new feature, CRM Themes. With Themes, organizations have the ability to uniquely brand their CRM system using colors, imagery, and more. Today we are happy to report that in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016, the theme colors now carry over into the Mobile clients, too, which increases user familiarity and adds your brand look and feel to your mobile CRM experience!

2. Custom mobile controls adopt the process flow control color on mobile forms.

3. All specified or custom entity colors carry over to mobile navigation.
