Upgrade to a new version

The process of updating Dynaway Mobile is similar to the processes used for installing Dynaway Mobile into an existing environment, as described in other articles:

  1. Get the latest version of the Dynaway Mobile for Asset Management solution.
  2. Apply or schedule the deployment of the Dynaway Mobile Platform and Dynaway Asset Management Mobile packages suited for your Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations application version. Refer to the article Deploy to existing cloud-hosted environment.
  3. Verify the license is up to date. Refer to the article Import license file.
  4. Verify license configuration keys.

After the update process, carry out the follwing tasks:

  1. Make sure the Dynaway Mobile site is updated accordingly to the new version in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Read more in the Mobile deployment section.
  2. If you are upgrading from a previous Dynaway Mobile version, you must open the Handler setup form. This is to ensure all handlers are up to date and available for the Mobile Client. Refer to the article Handlers.
  3. In Dynaway Mobile > Setup > Entity setup, select new entities in the list, and select the Enable button.
  4. Review updates to the Module configuration.
    1. In Dynaway Mobile > Setup > Module configuration > Asset management, review your setup and decide if new configuration options should be enabled or disabled.
