Run an app in a web browser

When you create an app, or someone shares an app with you, you can run that app on the Dynamics 365 mobile app or in a web browser on a tablet. In this topic, you'll learn how to run a canvas or model-driven app in a web browser on a tablet from the Dynamics 365 Home page.

For full functionality and optimized experience, we strongly recommend that you use the Dynamics 365 for phones and tablets mobile app. If you don't have the Dynamics 365 for phones and tablets app installed, you can still use the web browser on your tablet, as long as your device has sufficiently high screen resolution. For more information: What's supported.

Note

Using the web browser on your phone to run your model-driven apps isn't supported; you must use the Dynamics 365 for phones app.

To follow this quickstart, you need:

Sign in to Dynamics 365

Sign in to Dynamics 365 at https://home.dynamics.com.

Find an app on the Home page

The Home page may show several types of business apps, but you can find a specific app by typing part of its name in the search box. You can also filter the list to show only apps created by a specific source, such as Power Apps. To do this, select Filter and then select the source.

If you've recently installed the app, it might not immediately appear in the list of apps. Select Sync to show all your apps. This process may take up to a minute.

Run an app from a URL

You can save an app's URL as a bookmark in your tablet's browser and run it by selecting the bookmark, or you can send a URL as a link through email. If someone else created an app and shared it with you in an email, you can run the app by selecting the link in the email. When running an app using a URL, you may be prompted to sign in using your Azure Active Directory credentials.

Connect to data

If an app requires a connection to a data source or permission to use the device's capabilities (such as the camera or location services), you must give consent before you can use the app. Typically, you're prompted only the first time.

Connection

Close an app

To close an app, sign out of the Dynamics 365 Home page, or open another app.
