Good for Enterprise - Android QuickStart
Welcome to Good for Enterprise, the behind-the-firewall, wireless corporate email and data
access system from Good Technology. With Good, your Android handheld works in conjunction
with your email server and Good for Enterprise Server software on your corporate network.
When you start up Good Messaging, your Android handheld connects wirelessly with your
corporate network using the high-speed wireless network service supported by your Android
handheld, and Good Messaging Service synchronizes your Android handheld with your email,
calendar, and contacts, just as those applications synchronize your desktop computer and laptop
with your email server. In this way, your company and Android handheld folders present the
same information to you.
Setting Up Good Messaging
Once your account is activated by your IT administrator, you will receive a welcome message
from Good that gets you started setting up Good for Enterprise. You won’t need to return your
Android handheld to the administrator for setup or connect it to a computer.
To set up your Android handheld with Good Messaging:
1.
Your IT administrator will send you a message with your email address, a PIN (and
expiration date, if applicable), and a URL address.
2.
Make sure your Android handheld is fully charged and your wireless connection is active.
See the documentation that came with your Android handheld for details.
3.
Use the Android handheld browser to navigate to the URL address provided in the email
sent by your IT administrator. You will be redirected to the Good for Enterprise application in
Android Market.
Click the link to initiate the download and automatic installation of the Good application.
When installation is complete, launch the application.
4.
Enter your login information. This includes email address and PIN. Select Next.
A series of download, install, and connection screens appears. The status indicators at the top
of the screen change to track setup progress.
5.
If your administrator has enabled a policy requiring a password on Good Messaging, you’ll
be prompted to set it now.
When services are connected, Good Messaging automatically synchronizes your handheld with
information in your enterprise email account. This includes email messages, contacts, calendar
appointments, and so on.
Congratulations! You are ready to use Good Messaging applications on your handheld.

Contacts
When Good Messaging is installed on your handheld, your company contacts are synchronized
with the handheld’s contacts store. (Your administrator can specify which elements of data in a
contact are kept synchronized.) Thereafter, the contacts displayed within Good on the handheld
will be kept up-to-date with your company contacts. In addition, any changes made to your
company contacts will be reflected in your contacts store (but not vice versa). Contacts can be
used to make phone calls with your phone and send email and text messages. Good Messaging
must be running for Contacts to be available to other applications.
To view contacts from within Good Messaging, tap the Contacts icon in the Tab bar. A list of all of
your contacts appears.

long list of contacts, a tab appears at the side of the screen. Tap and drag to navigate through the
list letter-by-letter. You can find contacts based on the first few characters of a first name or last
name. This feature is useful for working with long lists of contacts. You can search your personal

contacts or the GAL.To find a contact, display the contacts list and tap the Search field at the top
of the page.
To edit or delete a contact, press and hold on it in the contacts list. A menu is displayed.If you

contact’s detailed view, as with the delete operation, by pressing the menu button and then
tapping Edit.
Calendar
Good Messaging’s Calendar keeps your handheld synchronized with your company calendar. You
can use your phone to monitor your company meetings and appointments. When your handheld is
set up, all of your calendar events from the past week and all future events are added. With this
application you can view existing events by day or month and add appointments
You can start the Calendar application in Day or Month View. A list of the day’s events is
displayed in Day View. In Month View, days with events are shaded. The month’s events are
displayed in a scrollable list at the bottom of the screen (an “agenda” view).

invited. Attendees deleted from an event are not notified.

messages. Tap a message to open it. (If there is only one new message, tapping the icon will open
it automatically.) Pulling down the bar and tapping the event reminder opens the Reminders
