    I've been trying to get a solution for this for a long time, and it has been surprisingly more difficult than I would have imagined. Our requirements are simple. Take documents from our server, and push them down to Blackberry Z10s/Q10s. Push updates whenever needed, seamless to the end user, without requiring the end user to 'do' anything. We want the documents stored locally on the device and not in the cloud or on our server because these are for emergency response. By nature of an "emergency", the user may or may not have cell service.

    We don't need anything pretty or fancy. Just the documents on the device, but at least controlling who gets which documents by using folders or something to that effect.

    We used to use "Vocera" but it is not supported on the Z10s. We've looked at "Work Drives" but there are too many steps that the users would have to take to make that an ideal option. We would like to avoid custom code as much as possible. Surely there is an app out there somewhere that can do this for us. Or an app that could be minimally modified to accomplish this purpose. So simple. Word documents/PDFs on server. Send to blackberry. Save. How hard can this be?

    Help please!

    What about an initial load to cloud (Box) etc,which will then have connected users who have set their sync to daily or semi daily or every 2 hours or whatever is best.

    You can also do BBM group which pushes to device though I am not positive on that.

    Thanks for the reply. Box or DropBox or any of those probably won't fly in our environment (very shy of cloud for security reasons), but surely there is something similar that could be done where the "cloud" is controlled on our side? Our own cloud? Not familiar with the BBM option but interested to entertain all ideas! Thank you for helping me brainstorm, let me know your thoughts!

    I won't write Box for business off. There are a couple of articles on their corporate secure file management and ability and their security is rated very high. https://www.box.com/business/secure-file-sharing/

    You can push to Box encrypted and have data decrypted locally via preshared key. Also look at Hush Mail for end to end encryption as well as new BES.

    That is why I said Box.

    What about Remote File Sharing through BlackBerry Link the desktop app? It requires the PC to be on, but you would have users have direct access to any files in their user directory.

    I use Work Drives on my BES connected Z10, and it may take a little setup time, but once it's set up it's a part of the file system on the Work Partition.
