Introduction
Welcome to the Mobile Express for Microsoft Dynamics CRM User's Guide. This guide describes what Mobile
Express is and how you can use it on your Web-enabled mobile device to access your customer information

Using Mobile Express
With Mobile Express, you can use any mobile Web browser in your Web-enabled mobile device to connect to
your Microsoft Dynamics CRM system. Mobile Express accesses the same Microsoft Dynamics CRM
environment and entities found in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The primary difference between the two user
environments is the display. Mobile Express provides a simplified layout to better support the small screen
size of mobile devices. Mobile Express does not store data on your mobile device.
You must have an Internet or intranet connection to use Mobile Express.
1. From your mobile Web browser, go to the URL for Mobile Express. Typically this is
   https://<CRM_server>/m where <CRM_server> is the name of the server you use to access Microsoft
   Dynamics CRM. Your system administrator will have the appropriate URL.
2. From the Home page, click an entity to access the form for the entity:
     From the form, you can access system and saved views, search for records, and create new records.
     Unless your system administrator modified what is available for each entity, you will see the same
        fields that you see in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
