SharePoint collaboration made easier with Work Drives 2.0 for BlackBerry 10

Apps

I’m excited to share that version 2.0 of the BlackBerry 10 Work Drives app is now available – for devices running 10.2.1 and higher. Now, no matter where you are, you can securely and easily access your company’s network drives to access and edit your files – including SharePoint docs– making it even easier to collaborate with your teams in real-time and stay connected on the go.

If you are like me, my network drive is the main place where I store my work documents. Since it launched on BlackBerry 10, Work Drives has enabled me to stay productive no matter where I am with my BlackBerry Z30. I can easily access and edit docs from my network drive using Documents To Go. Work Drives will automatically synch the latest changes I’ve made to offline files. And with this latest release, I can now access my SharePoint site so that collaborating with others on that last minute feedback and approvals to documents is easy.

And it’s not just me – thousands of others have downloaded the app – it has a 4 of our 5 star rating on BlackBerry World. Check out some of the feedback:

“Wow!

This is what makes BlackBerry great!

Native drive mapping to server drives without a VPN connect is awesome.  All of this is safe and secure through BlackBerry’s NOC. I love it. So convenient.” By Osbee

  • Immediate User Access with Remote Configuration by BES Admin
    • No need to configure complex drive mapping or SharePoint URLs – Remote network files can now be configured by the BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) administrator.
  • Support for Microsoft SharePoint
    • Users can “pin” documents located on network drives or SharePoint sites. Pinning a document provides user access to enterprise content while offline –a great convenience for airplane mode while travelling!
