Shop Floor Insight: Shop Floor Native Phone Client

Shop Floor Insight: Shop Floor Native Phone Client

You are here:

The Shop Floor Native Phone Client, with a role center and special pages, has been introduced to allow the use of some functionality found only on the Shop Floor within Business Central, using standard Business Central pages. This role center’s layout and fields are designed to be optimized for the Business Central phone client; however, you can use the role center within the normal Business Central web client and on the tablet. Barcode scanning is not supported on the phone-optimized Business Central pages.

In the Business Central client, most of the workflow integration options work with this mode except for the following:

  • JavaScript action
  • Custom menus
  • Custom barcodes

Not available in the Shop Floor Native Phone Client for the initial release:

  • Barcode scanning
  • Quality inspections
  • Job consumption
  • Tools panel
  • Document links
  • Picture panel
  • Color coding the time card line
  • Grouping the dispatch by employee assignment
  • Take and Un-take
  • Additional search box filtering (use standard BC filtering instead)
  • Output history
  • Recording output to a license plate
  • Production consumption initial quantities configuration
