How to switch between multiple notification profiles with ease!

HOW-TO / 01.12.15 / tywill1

Introduced in BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.1, a new feature has been added that allows you to quickly switch between your various notification profiles using the Quick Settings menu.

All it takes is opening the Quick Settings menu followed by tapping on the Notifications icon until your desired profile is selected.

To try this shortcut on your device, complete the following steps:

  1. While viewing the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen
  2. Tap Settings followed by Notifications
  3. Tap Quick Settings
  4. Classic_Profile_01

  5. Check the profiles you’d like to add to your Quick Settings screen
  6. Tap Back when finished to save your changes


Optionally, tap Rearrange to change the order of profiles

After doing this, tap the icon next to Notifications within Quick Settings to quickly switch between your notification profiles. For example, in the following screenshot, tap the red box a few times to cycle through the notification profiles you have checked during step 4.


Don’t forget you can always access the Quick Settings menu from your home screen by swiping down with one finger, or within an app by swiping down from the top of the screen using two fingers 🙂
