PPM request updates on Blackberry or other mobile device

Has anyone created a solution for allowing users to update PPM requests using Blackberry devices? At the HPSU conference, I head rumors there was a 3rd party solution available, but I haven't been able to find any information regarding it. In our case, we have a requirement to notify users via email that a request requires their approval. They also want to be able to open the request and approve it.

Hope i understand correctlly.

if your Blackberry can access the internet, the only thing is blocking your way is to open your instance to the internet and not only the intranet with a valid IP.

Hope i helped

Mercury Special Ops provided a solution for this. I am attaching a PDF with the details. It is only valid for 7.0 and above and can be overwritten by upgrades and patches. I have not implemented it but would like to after upgrading from 6.0.

Hi Dale,

Our solution for Request approval via blackberry/email works across 6.0 to 7.x.

Also, it comes with a self installation utility - no XML files are harmed during the installation. :)

Configuration is even simpler - again, no need to edit any XML files.

It supports attachments to be added to the request as well.

Regards,
Sanjay
