I work for a company that would like me to set up a Consent to Monitor message on the BB handhelds. They would like a message similar to the one they have set on the workstations that pops up after the user hits alt-ctrl-delete. Is there any way to do this in BES? I know I can set put a message in the "Set Owner Info" block and lock it in policy but this is not quite what management is looking for. Any suggestions?
You can probably create a custom application to do what you are wanting on the handheld. Maybe a developer will see this post and help you out.
Or, you can set up a intranet site that users must go to (from their workstations), read the Use Policy for your company and then accept it before getting an activation password. I believe you can use the BRK to automatically set & send the password.
The options under IT Policy - Common Policy group are all that is available for this:
Lock Owner Info
Set Owner Info
Set Owner Name
I haven't seen any code that would provide a screen before the unlock screen or after once it's unlocked. We thought about it but management felt putting company information is basically saying "You found a blackberry from company X".
The users have all signed an agreement stating that. However someone, I would guess the boys and girls in legal, has decided that they need a reminder that basically states, I have read and agreed to the terms of the user agreement. Long story short, someone was let go a few weeks ago for what anyone with half a brain would see as a clear violation of policy and (err...) illegal in 49 states. They had a signed user agreement and were apparently not quite smart enough to remember what they had signed.
We would be leaving company info out of the statement and to be honest putting it in the place of the User Info would probably be a good thing as our users have access to input whatever they want in that field right now and many of them have company info there. If management wants a quick fix using the User Info and locking it would probably be the best way to go. Thank you for the input.
