What do you like best?

The use of the BlackBerry Workspaces is a centralized digital location with integrated protection to keep my essential records that I do throughout the day and that I can use as a backup, mainly to save images, music files, Pdf and others. In addition to this point, I can collaborate with other people interested in speaking, in addition to editing and improving the documents present. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When several other individuals are using exactly the same file at the same time, eventually a conflict is observed. This harms the person who started the job and needs to update the document material so as not to have their information saved and therefore needs to do all the work again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is interesting to understand that all adjustments that individuals make to documents can be easily recorded to meet any type of need that the circumstance may require. And we can also access folders from anywhere without red tape. As many of my friends have the program, it is very easy to integrate with our work group. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In this protected area, I know that I will not have a chance to lose my work done during a period. This security I certainly would not have using the computer's standard hard drive or a flash drive that is at risk of damage. As with all functions of the program, I can be much more efficient with these resources in my hands. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I was very hesitant when my organization switched to BlackBerry Workspaces given how much use I get out of my work smartphone. However, after using it a few months, I can honestly say having one "platform" for all of my work is somewhat convenient especially if, like me, you're prone to forgetting passwords and the like because you can use one password across all aspects of the platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My biggest compliant about BlackBerry Workspaces has been regarding file attachments. For instance, if you receive an e-mail with an attachment that you would like to view, after clicking to open the attachment, it kicks you out of the e-mail program and into the Enterprise platform "app" within BlackBerry Workspaces. From there, you can view the attachment without any difficulties and that's completely fine. However, if you need to either save the attachment onto your phone for viewing purposes later, or would like to forward the attachment via e-mail to another recipient, the platform will not allow you to do this and instead, you can only forward the original e-mail you received with the attachment included which you may not want to do if there is a e-mail chain included that the recipient does not need to be aware of. Lastly, I found updating the software to be quite buggy and has required me to delete and download the BlackBerry Workspaces application again on multiple occasions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the functionality required of your organization and employees before putting data security ahead of all other things. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I definitely think our organization has improved our data security and overall enterprise security by requiring all employees to use this on their respective work phone so we've definitely solved the data security matter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This is not BlackBerry's mistake, it occasionally you need to manage questionable WiFi which reduces the process.Sometimes it requires time to integrate with the web server which can be bothersome.

I would say BlackBerry Workspaces is a fantastic software to share and many files productively. I can access into my files through laptop or my tablet. It allows me to connect to my work secured documents in my workspace and also create and upload new documents into the secured folder. Basically, it works as I expect and I can do a lot of good stuffs with this software.

Another feature that I like about this BlackBerry Workspace software is that they have great security and very simple design so that users can understand all the functions quickly.

I travel a lot for the company and I don't have to worry to carry all the files with me. It's absolutely secured travels with all my files to wherever I go.

BlackBerry Workspaces designs effective recovery tools in the hands of the system administrator. And, this feature helps to contain and limit the damage of ransomware attacks by allowing the admin to freeze affected user accounts and selectively target and address infected files. Recently, they have made a number of updates including adding annotations, offline access and even more features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometime, it's buggy and crashes every time I use it on my iPad; therefore, I just stick with my tablet and Android phone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

After several months of of using this Blackberry Workspace, I can say it's the powerful tool for me to carry around our confidential corporate documents. One of its benefits is that I can send files and I can later edit the share permissions. Secondly, it lets me restrict users' ability to copy, print or forward documents, and as well as allows me to wipe and destroy documents you had shared when a transaction falls through - even after they have been downloaded Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's little difficult of using its app so I would only use it on my laptop only. Also, sometimes I can't read the files more than 20 minutes without being kicked out and it is automatically deleting the files while using the app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, I do recommend Blackberry Workspace for file sharing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- We can share and edit documents at any times.

- Instant messaging

- Ability to search and filter files/documents

It's easy to switch between "apps" within the workspace, i.e. from mail to calendar. It does also sync well with with my company's Outlook servers and updates very quickly -- sometimes faster than Outlook on my laptop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It''s a giant pain to set up with lots of steps that aren't clear at all. I had to get an IT person to help me set it up. And in the end, it's just another set of apps on my phone that are harder to use that the native email and calendar apps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
