Dynamics 365 Business Central: Add Custom app launcher tiles

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
In Microsoft 365 including Business Central, you can quickly and easily get to your email, calendars, documents, and other apps using the App launcher (learn more).

Choose App launcher icon in the upper left corner.

These are apps you get with Microsoft 365 that you add from the SharePoint Store or Azure AD.

And as you might know, Dynamics 365 Home is deprecated now.

The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

So, when you need to quickly access Business Central from other apps, in addition to using direct links, you can choose Business Central application in App launcher, which includes Production environment and Sandbox environment.

PS: You can pin the Business Central app to the launcher.

But, there is a small problem when you have more than one environment available. You will not have direct access to the environment you need to access and will need to select the environment that you want to access.

Is there any way to improve this problem?
Yes, we can add our own custom tiles to the app launcher that point to the Business Central environment in Microsoft 365 admin center.

Choose Admin in App launcher, or access https://admin.microsoft.com/Adminportal/ directly.

Then choose Settings -> Org settings -> Organization profile -> Custom app launcher tiles.

Choose Add a customer title.

Custom app launcher tiles: Create custom tiles that will appear in the All apps section of the ‎Office 365‎ app launcher for all of your users. Users can pin the custom tiles directly to their app launcher for quick access.

Enter a Tile name, URL of website, URL of the image, Description for the tile.

Select Save changes to create the custom tile.

The custom tile ‎BC SandboxZY‎ has been added.

Your custom tile now appears in the app launcher on the All tab for you and your users.

You can pin it to the Home apps and instruct your users to do the same. This makes it easy to find the relevant sites to do your job.

Hope this will help.
