We will be releasing a new Admin Tasks tab in the admin console for you soon.  The first task we will make available is a better way for you to track and manage user migration requests directly from the Box admin console.  Any requests your organization has made to start user migrations will be tracked here and you can review them for accuracy and approve or reject them.  This will speed up the user migration process by giving you more visibility into the process and control over it.
 
This new process will enable you to control the following migrations:
  • a personal user account to an Enterprise user account,
  • an Enterprise user account to a personal user account, or
  • an Enterprise user account to a different Enterprise user account.

Once you approve a request to migrate an account, Box will do the rest for you.  We will launch an automated migration process that frees you from time-consuming procedures and emails, reduces the risk of migration errors, and speeds up the migration process.

To see additional information about user activities, click View More. This enables you to see details of user activity such as user names, actions, file names, dates, and times over a span of 90 days. To see the same additional information for a particular day, click View Daily Report.

We have made it even easier to manage your Box Apps from the Admin Console Apps Page . These changes make it easier to enable/disable Official Box Managed Apps, such as Box Drive, Notes, and the Box Mobile Apps. Previously, you were required to sift through our large list of first-party and third-party apps, and this UI update improves that experience for managing Box Apps.
 
Now, we have simplified things for you so you can easily see which apps are enabled/disabled by navigating the the subsections and check individual or large groups of Box apps. 
 
Take a look and see which Box apps, such as Box Mobile or Drive, you can be leveraging to enable your enterprise to be even more successful.

App configuration settings for existing Box users will remain the same and you will see the same settings when you expand the Official Box Managed Apps.

We have updated UI and usage/activity dashboard for admins! These changes focus on making it easier to get where you need in the admin console and by providing data about how Box is being used in your organization.

Admins can now see where Box is being accessed across the globe, storage/user/group counts, and segment by key activities (preview, upload, download, sharing, etc.) to understand exactly how Box is used and its ROI.

You can check this out by using the toggle you will see in your admin home page and go back and forth between the two experiences!

 

Starting in October, we will begin deprecating the old admin console UI and will provide more specifics as we get closer to that date.

We will be making our UI and usage/activity dashboard available for admins in early April.  You can check it out by using the toggle you will see in your admin home page when the functionality is ready and go back and forth between the two experiences.
