Google Apps Connector for BES v4.0 Released

Google Apps Connector

I am not sure how many companies are using the Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server but it just got an update this month. MiBlackBerry spotted the news on Google’s website along with a change log. It really just adds support for the latest version of BES along with:

  • Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0.3
  • Read-Receipt functionality
  • Free/Busy functionality

Here is a breakdown of the features:

Support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0.3

Release 4.0 of the Google Apps Connect includes support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0.3. BlackBerry Enterprise Server version 5.0.2 is still supported as well.

Read-Receipt functionality

When the BlackBerry device gets a message that requests a read receipt, the device will prompt whether to send a read receipt, and whether to remember this setting. This feature is disabled by default. To enable this feature, set the following registry key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Apps Sync] "ReadReceiptEnabled"=dword:00000001
This setting will take effect the next time you restart the Dispatcher and agents. If a user previously had set a BlackBerry device to deliver a read receipt by default, when you enable this feature the BlackBerry device will deliver a read receipt without prompting the user.

Free-Busy

When scheduling a meeting on the BlackBerry device, users can view free/busy information for other meeting attendees. This information may be cached up to 15 minutes. This feature is disabled by default. To enable this feature, set the following registry key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Apps Sync] "FreeBusyEnabled"=dword:00000001
This setting will take effect the next time you restart the Dispatcher and agents. If this feature is enabled, free/busy will be visible for all users who share their free/busy settings with the Google Apps Connector user, whether or not those users share their free/busy with an individual user. As a result, users may see free/busy schedules in BlackBerry that they would not have permission to see in the Google Apps web browser, and vice versa.

  1. Say, what if I have Apps but don’t have BES. Could this benefit me anyway?
