Now that the BlackBerry Z10 has become available in the U.S, and continues to leak out into the hands of business users, BlackBerry Balance can bring users that luxury of only having to use one device for work or personal use. To get started, here are a few tips and tricks from the BlackBerry team to help users truly optimize their BlackBerry Balance:
- Keep your personas separate - Color code your calendar appointments to better plan your day and quickly triage what’s work and what’s personal. For example, by using BlackBerry Groups, family members can integrate calendars to ensure everyone is constantly up to date with the latest schedules of events. With a quick swipe of the finger, users can easily hide these events to manage work appointments. In the Calendar application, swipe down from the top bezel to reveal the menu items. Select Manage to show/hide calendars and Settings to customize colors.
- Protect your personal moments – The BlackBerry Z10 features an 8 megapixel camera for sharp photos, and the impressive Time Shift feature that allows you to go back in time to capture the perfect shot, making the Z10 ideal for photographing friends and family. By saving photos to your Personal profile, you can prevent private family images from being migrated onto corporate servers.
- Easily access your important documents - To easily access corporate documents on your business profile, take advantage of behind-the firewall capabilities and have your IT department grant you access to network file shares. Download the free BlackBerry Work Drives app, to remotely access, edit and manage content located on enterprise network drives.
- Power down what/when you want – Let BlackBerry Balance help you achieve balance! Pick a time of day and lock your work profile to eliminate the urge to check work email and other info. From the Home Screen, users should swipe down from the top to reveal the attached menu, then simply click the Balance icon on the left side to lock the Work space.
