New GP 2016 Web Client shows only one Window at a time

    For those of you that have had the pleasure (and the luck) to have glimpse of the new GP 2016 HTML5 web client (or even installed and tested it), and you may have realized one big change vs. the previous Silver-light-based GP2015 & 2013 Web client... the handling of the forms on screen is very different.

    Please read a more details description on David Musgrave's blog about the issue :

    https://winthropdc.wordpress.com/2016/06/17/msconnect-open-more-than-one-window-at-a-time-in-gp2016-web-client/

    The concern was raised by MVP Belinda Allen and Microsoft seems to have already acknowledged the weird issue this represents for many customers and mainly the limitation for 3rd party ISV products.

    A direct link to vote for the change of this behavior can be found on MS Connect :

    At the time of this writing, 15 people have already voted for it...

    Go and vote now :-) !

    I just clicked on the link in Beat's post, and it took me right to the page.  I must have clicked 'Remember me' or something, at some point because it logged me right in.  I think I logged in with my Windows Live account.

    I voted!!

    Please look at my blog post which contains instructions for when the links don't work for you.

    Hi Judy,

    Follow David's direction for MS-Connect... MS-Connect has nothing to do with Customer or Partner Source and requires a separate registration.. you can use the same LIVE account ID as for Partner Source (what I do), but they are not lined together..

    Clicking on the link if you're not authenticated already will end up as an error for 'page not found'.

    The home page of MS-Connect is : http://connect.microsoft.com/

    All,

    Thanks for bringing this to the attention of the forum!!  I was disappointed in the roll out of the first version web client and to hear that the HTML5 version has these limits is disappointing to hear as well. 

    I voted this morning - Number 89!!! 

    Hopefully this issue can be resolved and quickly.  I was really hoping to use the new version web client on GP2016.

    Regards,

    That's already 3-digit number ! great job..

    NO pun intended, but I've seen votes going above 500 mark in CRM MS-Connect threads..

    There is another post with 137 votes about requesting MS to allow for bigger fonts or forms in GP2013 and up :
