We are currently working on supporting “Extensions” and the cloud version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Public Cloud). As soon as we have a concrete release date, we will announce this in our “Announcement” section. Depending on the progress and publication process at “AppSource”, we expect a release in Q2-Q4 2020.
The Anveo Client Suite requires a license. The available licensing options are available on our website.
Each Anveo license is bound 1:1 to a Microsoft Dynamics license.
Company Name Filter
To ensure proper use of the Anveo license, a company name filter is required in addition to the Microsoft Dynamics serial number. This filter must contain one or more meaningful company names such as CRONUS International Ltd. or “CRONUS*”. For test systems and development environments further company names can be activated like “TEST*|DEV*.
The license must contain all company names that synchronize data to the Anveo Mobile App. Companies that do not synchronize data are not relevant for license creation.
This company name filter is new to Anveo Client Suite version 10. If you upgrade from a previous version, make sure to request a new Anveo license before upgrading. Please provide a list of company names you require in your installation.
If you are running Anveo Mobile App or Anveo Web Portal until version 9, the company name information in the Anveo license must be empty. If not, the license will be shown as “not valid”. If you require Anveo licenses for both versions, please contact Anveo Partner Care or Anveo Support
Even if the company filter is required, the Anveo Mobile App and Anveo Web Portal license is based on one database for live operation and one Microsoft Dynamics license. You may have one or more company names in your Anveo license without any extra costs. If you need to add more company names in the filter string, please contact your Microsoft Partner or Anveo Partner Care to receive an updated Anveo license.
Microsoft Dynamics License
To run Anveo, a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central or Microsoft Dynamics NAV license is required. The type of license is depending on the version and usage scenario. Please contact your Microsoft Partner for further details.
Anveo cannot be used to reduce the number of Microsoft Dynamics licenses. Any third party application that connects to Microsoft Dynamics (like Anveo) requires Microsoft licenses. It is not allowed to share one Microsoft Dynamics user account with multiple external users. This is called “Multiplexing”.
“Full User” or “Team Member” / “Limited User”
Each Anveo User requires a “Full User” or “Team Member”, “Limited User” or “Light User” depending on the Microsoft Dynamics version and depending on the usage scenario. The basic rule is: if you write to more than three tables outside a set of “free tables”, a “Full User” is required. Some other restrictions apply like posting is not allowed for a “Limited User” or “Team Member”. Please consult official Microsoft documentation or contact your Microsoft Partner for details.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
As in the previous section described, Anveo requires a “Full User” or “Team Member” for reading and writing data from and to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. These licenses are based on a “named user” basis like Anveo licenses: Each user that gets access requires a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central license.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 to 2018
Anveo requires a “Full User” or “Limited User” depending on the data that will be written back from the app to Microsoft Dynamics NAV. These licenses are based on “concurrency”. The number of users accessing the system at the same time (“concurrent”) plus a certain time of inactivity are required. “Full User” requires 2 hours of inactivity after the last action, a “Limited User” requires 15 minutes.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2
In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2, a “Light User” or the “External Connector” is required depending on the usage scenario.
Beside a proper Microsoft Dynamics Licensing, other software licenses may be required for the infrastructure like for Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Azure or Microsoft Windows Server. Please consult the official software requirements for Microsoft Dynamics for more details.
Binding information regarding Microsoft Dynamics or other Microsoft software licensing requirements is only available from Microsoft or your Microsoft Partner. Anveo is neither responsible for correctness of this information nor for proper licensing at your system.
Mobile Devices Requirements
Anveo Mobile App runs on the following mobile operating systems:
- Android version 5.0 and higher (version 4.4 was supported until February 2020)
- iOS (iPad and iPhone) version 10 and higher
- Microsoft Windows 10
- Limited support for Windows 8.1 because of a reduced feature set.
The following operating systems are not supported:
- Microsoft Windows smart phones
- Microsoft Windows CE
- All other OS not mentioned in the list above
Due to the large number of software and hardware combinations, we are unfortunately unable to give any explicit soft- and hardware recommendations. The desired configuration can be tested free of charge through the Anveo Mobile App in Google Play, App Store or Microsoft Store. Please download the app and test it with the desired devices. If you are using the Anveo Web Portal, we provide free demo accounts for testing.
In addition, we cannot give an exact recommendation for the performance, because the Anveo solutions are very different and therefore place very different demands on the devices. Some Anveo Mobile App solutions require very little memory and CPU capacity, while others require very current and fast devices.
In general, a preliminary test must also be carried out here. We have observed that the speed of the CPU is the decisive factor for a better performance, less the memory.
