  • To sync events from different calendars to home screen calendar go to settings, accounts, go into the account you want to sync calendar, and make sure calendar line is enabled.  All that are enabled will show on home screen calendar.
  • From Home screen…………
    • Click home key (round one at bottom front of phone) twice quickly to gain access to open screens.  Push each screen upward to close. 
    • Pull from top for alerts (email, text, etc).

    • Want the sender’s email information?  Open the email and click on the sender for email address.
    • If on your phone you open a work email or link within a work email that is spam you will not infect your employer’s network.  If you question the legitimacy of an email, open it on your phone.  Malware rarely effects phones.  Bad apps can have bad consequences to phones.

  •  Security 
    • Employee owned devices having access to business technology - when employee departs, make sure to clear company data from employee owned devices!
  • File Sync – can access files from cloud and manipulate if Word or Adobe is on phone.  Can also sync files locally for easy access without internet access.
  • Remote connectivity used by DTCI is RD Client – will give ability to access desktop but recommended professional install for security reasons. 
  • Conference call – place first call, wait for “+” to light on screen, press “+”, dial 2nd number, and press merge calls button.  You can conference with up to 2 parties.

Stay tuned our next lunch and learn comes to you in April, 2017!
