question about door locks/keyless entry

is there anyway to open all the doors when you open using the driver side handle?
if I open on the passenger everything unlocks , but I cant find a way to program it so that the same happens from the driver side ... I have to go into the car and push the button so
my friends can get in ...

thx

There should be a setting in the idrive to unlock all doors.

My Comfort Access unlocks all 4 doors from either the driver's side or the passenger side. What happens when you push the Unlock button on the remote control?

Lift the driver's door handle twice. It's the same as the remote, which unlocks the drivers door first, then all the doors when pressed twice

Agree. There is a setting in iDrive to unlock all the doors or only the driver door. You won't need to pull twice.

I don't even pull to unlock. 1 hand-grip unlocks all 4 doors, then 1 pull opens the driver's door. Likewise, 1 push of the Unlock button on my remote unlocks all 4 doors. In IDrive, under Settings, Doors, I have Unlock Button set to All Doors, and everything else on that screen checked too.
