iOS/Android App Record Creation Identification?

    Hey Everyone,

    Question about record creation identification.  Can a record be identified as being created on the iOS/Android App verus IE/Chrome web interface and/or Outlook Interface?  Looking to see if field team is using iOS/Android to create new records or just using app to update existing ones.


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Joe . . . I do not know how to retroactively detect whether a record was create/edited on mobile vs. desktop; however, I have used Xrm.Page.context.client.getClient() where the value "Mobile" denotes mobile client usage to execute mobile-specific functionality. So, you could probably use a similar method to set a flag field on records when they are created/updated on the mobile. Just a thought.  -Erik
