We are thrilled to announce the public preview release of the Asset Management mobile app for Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. The app is available for all commonly used mobile platforms, devices, and form factors.
The app enables maintenance workers to review their assigned jobs, mark tasks as complete, enter notes, and log the time and materials consumed. Other staff can use the app to quickly file maintenance requests by scanning a barcode, entering notes, and submitting photos.
The Asset Management mobile app in action
Jody, a production manager at Contoso Inc., is preparing a presentation and notices that the monitor cable in the meeting room is broken. She immediately launches the Asset Management mobile app so she can report this incident. She scans the bar code on the monitor to identify it in the system. Then she fills out the required information, marks the issue as high severity, and takes some photos to document the damage. Finally, she selects Submit to file the report.
Roger, the maintenance supervisor, is working in Supply Chain Management and receives a notification about Jody’s maintenance request. He notices that it is high severity, so he immediately creates a work order from the request and assigns it to Peter, who is the maintenance worker responsible for that office.
Peter has just finished his previous assignment, so he opens the job list on his mobile app to see what his next job should be. Jody’s request appears right at the top of the list because it’s marked as high severity. When Peter selects the job, he can see the details, including Jody’s description and the pictures she took of the broken cable. Peter opens the job check list and goes through each step, marking them complete as he works. When the job is done, he logs the time it took and the materials he used. The monitor is now ready for use for Jody’s presentation.
Architecture and licensing
The Asset Management mobile app is built as a Canvas app in PowerApps, and doesn’t require any additional licenses to use. The app leverages the security roles already established in Supply Chain Management to grant the appropriate users access to the maintenance request and/or job management functions as needed.
To run the Asset Management mobile app, you must be running Supply Chain Management version 10.0.32 or higher. The app is available for all commonly used mobile platforms, devices, and form factors.
For more information about how to deploy and use the app, see Asset Management mobile app overview on Microsoft Docs.
