Getting started with Meeting Mode in BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2

How-To

mockupFirst introduced in BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3, Meeting Mode places your device into a specific notification profile whenever you have a meeting in your calendar.

For example, I have Meeting Mode set up to silence my device whenever I am in meetings that I have accepted in my calendar so I am not ‘that guy’ with the phone going off constantly😉

To help you get started with Meeting Mode, listed below is an overview of how to turn on this feature and customize it to suit your needs. Make sure you try it out!

Note: Some of the options below only appear if you are using BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2. If you are using a earlier version of BlackBerry 10 watch for a OS update in the near future! To learn more check out our Inside BlackBerry post, BlackBerry 10.3.2 and BlackBerry Blend 1.2 Coming to All BlackBerry 10 Devices

  1. Open the Calendar
  2. Swipe down from the top of the screen
  3. Tap Settings followed by Meeting Mode
  4. Turn on Meeting Mode
  5. Tap Configure Meeting Mode Profile
    • Verify Sound and Vibrate are disabled and optionally enable Notify During Calls
