Business Central: Camera from Browser and Mobile APP
With the new release of Business Central it is possible access the camera of a device from the Business Central Web client in the browser and from the Business Central Mobile App. This allows the user to take pictures and handle them directly from the same device, and in that way, improve accuracy of capturing data closest to the source, and reduce end-to-end time to perform tasks.
Not only does this modernize the experience, but when applied to the right scenarios, it can also reduce time and effort of data entry and help capture information closer to the source.
Business Central – Camera
“Create incoming doc from Camera”
The use of the Camera by Web Client or in APP is very useful in certain usage scenarios if used together with document acquisition (a function that has already existed for some time); direct access to the Camera can be useful for collecting expense reports or any document that must have been transmitted (example in a company that works on Projects and must control resource costs fast).
Once “collected the document” through the Camera, it is possible to attach the picture acquired to a new document (incoming document) and use the document for different purposes, example to account for it directly.
- Click on “Use the camera”
- Click on “Take a picture”
Capture my quarantined photo (in my son’s room).
Click “use” ore “retake” to acquire picture
After the image acquisition it is possible to see a new document in “incoming documents“…
Open the new “Incoming Document”
The document was created with the scanned image linked, the document is ready for use, to be edited, managed and posted.
Here is the acquired document
Two options to create a new document
- Creare from Camera
- Create form File (this option already existed)
Management of the acquired document

With this option it is possible to create new documents starting from the acquired document or to book them directly
From “Create Manually” you can create:
