That's an interesting question. I was also wondering if there is any way. Would help in development.

Yes you can.

It is now possible to run the mobile app by invoking a URL that is based on the ms-businesscentral URI scheme. The URL has the following format:

ms-businesscentral://<domain>[/sandbox]/

All you need to do is construct an email or document containing the above URL and open it on your device with the app installed to force your app to connect in a different way – passing additional parameters.

Get to the sandbox: ms-businesscentral://businesscentral.dynamics.com/sandbox

Go back to the standard environment: ms-businesscentral://businesscentral.dynamics.com/

If you have a device with the Business Central Mobile app installed, you can paste in your browser the following string:

ms-businesscentral://businesscentral.dynamics.com/sandbox

the browser will then ask you to open the BC app. Click YES and you will be connected to the sandbox.

You can pass also additional parameters, check here:
