“80% of organizations enabling Unified Interface and the legacy web client will be deprecated on October 1, 2020. Along with legacy web app, Process dialogs and Task flows will also be deprecated.”
Microsoft offer customers early visibility and the opportunity to prepare for this update. why should we move to new UCI now, Charles Lamanna, GM of Business Applications Platform, puts forward:
Work from anywhere
Users expect to be able to work from anywhere, on any device. Unified Interface is a metadata-driven experience with controls built on an extensible framework that provides a uniform experience across mobile, embedded, and web clients. The app display reflows to the screen size in use.
Focused roles creation
Coupled with the Unified Interface, focused role creation helps simplify the end-user experience by including only the tasks and information for a given role in your organization. This reduces user confusion and lowers training costs.
End-users can quickly move between apps and easily navigate with recent and pinned favorites. Together with focused role experiences, users only see what they need.
Users see great overall performance improvements over the legacy web client. Examples include retrieval of application metadata, improving the rendering of forms, reducing the load times of both forms and grids, and improved performance of customized form ribbons.
Overall productivity enhancements
The Unified Interface was developed with accessibility standards in mind, including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). We regularly publish Accessibility Conformance Reports that detail how our products and services conform with these accessibility standards.
