BlackBerry Unite! Automatic Update MR3

[ Edited ]

BlackBerry Unite! has received a new automatic update BlackBerry Unite! MR3.

New Features:

1.  Remote Administration

 

 

The Remote Device Management application allows Unite! Administrators to modify the device settings of other Unite users from their BlackBerry device. The features mirror those of the Device Management tab on the Unite Console.  The following capabilities are now available with BlackBerry Unite! MR3.

 

 

Usage Reports: view the phone and browser usage logs for a user

 

Phone logs display:

  • The type of call
  • The caller's name (if available)
  • The number called
  • The time of the call
  • The call duration

 

Browser log display:

  • The site visited
  • The time of the request

 

Note:  Wireless IT Policies and/or software configurations applied to the BlackBerry device associated with a corporate BlackBerry Enterprise Server may prevent the use of some of the features of the Remote Device Management Application.

2.  Share

Provide a quick and intuitive method for sharing calendar items, contacts, and pictures with other Unite! users.  After being added to Unite! users will see a ‘Share with BlackBerry Unite!’ menu item within the Calendar, Address Book and Media applications on the BlackBerry.  Highlighting an item within one of these applications and selecting ‘Share with BlackBerry Unite!’ will share that item with all users on the same Unite! machine. The user will get a notification* when an item has been shared/ modified.

 

 

Calendar View

 

Menu with Share function:

Menu with Share

 

Confirmation for Share window:

Confirmation for Share

 

To Share Pictures:

Unite! user highlights a Picture item and opens the menu. Selecting the “Share” item in the menu, the Picture item will be shared with other Unite! users. All Unite! users except the originator receive a notification about the event.

 


 

Additional notes about Share:

Calendar:

Scenario of MultiBES users with software versions lower than 4.3.0:

  • Since Unite CICAL service book are not installed on these devices, sync server is not able to deliver an update to these devices. Delivering the updated item to the devices that do not have CICAL service book is now handled by "Share" notification engine. It should be noted that this approach results in creating a totally new item (only on the device that does not have the Unite CICAL service book).
  • For the same reason, devices without Unite CICAL service book cannot send an update through service book and sync server functionalities. To send an update and notify other users, user should use "Share" on an updated item. The caveat with this requirement is that a totally new Calendar item will be created on the server and all other devices each time "Share" is applied to an already shared item.

 

Contacts:

Scenario of MultiBES users with software versions lower than 4.5.0:

  • Since Unite SYNC service book are not installed on these devices, sync server is not able to deliver an update to these devices. Delivering the updated item to the devices that do not have SYNC service book is now handled by "Share" notification engine. It should be noted that this approach results in creating a totally new item (only on the device that does not have the Unite SYNC service book).
  • For the same reason, devices without Unite SYNC service book cannot send an update through service book and sync server functionalities. To send an update and notify other users, user should use "Share" on an updated item. The caveat with this requirement is that a totally new Contact item will be created on the server and all other devices each time "Share" is applied to an already shared item.

 

Pictures:

  • Unite! server does not persist the shared picture.
  • Unlike the way Calendar and Contact items were treated on the devices with CICAL and SYNC service book, there is no automatic save of the picture item on the receiver device. User should save the picture manually.
  • The concept of update is not supported using "Share" to share a Picture item.
  • There will be no notification for a deleted Picture item.

 

Note:

To start using the new features each user must reactivate their BlackBerry Smartphone that is
 connected to BlackBerry Unite!
