[Ann] Warehouse management app for Dynamics 365 SCM is in Public Preview

The day has come when we are ready for Public preview of the reworked Warehouse management app. 


The Warehouse Management app is a complete remake, using the “frontline worker” visual style, as seen in Production floor execution and HoloLens Guide. The new design concepts are based on extensive usability studies including a broad worker population. The solution is designed to help workers be more efficient, productive, and better able to complete work accurately.

The new solution provides the following benefits and capabilities:

  • Faster task execution
    • “Spinner” for fast quantity input
    • Buttons easy to hit with gloves
    • Clear text on dirty screens
    • Buttons in best corner for user’s grip
  • Easier ramp-up of temp workers
    • Title and illustration per step
    • Full-screen photo to verify product
  • Solves top user pain points
    • Menu hard to use
    • Gray text hard to read
    • Hard to learn what step means
  • Settings sync’ed from FnO
    • Instruction per task step, company can edit
  • Great foundation for next steps
    • Meets WCAG 2.1 accessibility with focus on situational disabilities
      • Scales text to 400%
      • Scales buttons to 200%
    • Scaling to fit any device type
      • Based on resulting sizes of elements
      • Swaps parts
      • Changes layout sequence
