Dynamics Mobile Platform navigation

Overview

The Dynamics Mobile Platform Web Console is the main way for the users to interact with the system.

The users need to login into their respective application area to gain access to the web console.

Once the user signs in, the system will display the Home screen.

Every user may have different Home screen presented, depending on the assigned role of the user.

Actions

Active application (C1)

On the left-top side of the screen (C1), the user sees the currently active backend application and the version. In this case on the screenshot above we see that the currently active backend application is Mobile Fleet with version 0.129.601.

Active application menu (C2)

On the left-side of the screen , just under the active application, the system displays the menu (C2) for the currently active application. The user may use the application menu to access the various functionalities of the system by clicking over them with the mouse ( or tapping on the screen for touch enabled screens)

Folding and Unfolding the left-side menu (C3)

The user can fold-in the left-side menu by clicking over the menu-fold-in button (C3). This will shrink the menu to the possible smallest size and making the central area larger. The use may expand the menu any time after the menu is folded-in by clicking again over the menu-fold button.

Checking the latest notifications (C4)

The bell icon on the top-left of the screen (C4) shows if there are pending notification messages relevant to the user. The user can click the icon to see the messages and read them.

Username, Application Area, Profile (C5)

The text at the top right of the screen (C5) shows the currently signed in username. The user may also click over his username to see additional option allowing him to see his current application area name and menu item to access his user profile details.

The top-middle of the screen (C6) shows the current navigation path where the user is located. The breadcrumb will change whenever the user clicks on any of the menus.

Main application area (C7)

The middle of the screen represents the main application area (C7), where the actual application content is displayed. The main application area content changes accordingly with every user click.

Switching between applications (C1)

The user can switch between the applications by taping over the Application Selector (C1).

Once the user clicks over the Application Selector (C1), the system displays list of available application (C8) in the current application area. The user can click over one of the applications to activate it. Once the user clicks over an application from the list, the system will make the new application active by displaying its name in the Application Selector (C1) and showing the new application's menu in C7.

Custom vs System Applications

When the user clicks over the Application Selector (C1), it will expand to display the list of the available backend applications (C8). The backend applications are divided into two sections: Custom and System.

The Application Selector when expanded, shows first the custom application installed in the system - Mobile Fleet in this case, but there may be more. The system administrator of the application area decides which custom applications to be installed and available.

The Application Selector ,when expanded, also shows a list of system applications under the SYSTEM menu icon - in this case these are Administration and Development. The system applications are part of the Dynamics Mobile Platform and are always installed.

The Administration system application provides functionality to administer the system by managing users, roles, applications and others.

You can see the next topics from the documentation like Roles, Users, Apps and so on for details about the Administration system app functionalities.
