Coming Soon: Changes to Admin Console Apps Page

Box Employee
We will be adding an easier way to manage your Box Apps from the Admin Console Apps Page . These changes focus on making 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.

This is a good update for official Box apps. Can anything be done to cleanup the third-party apps list? A quick suggestion that I've submitted previously is to add filters for Disabled and Available. We'd like to see at a glance what apps we've made available without scrolling through 140+ pages. Possibly add an option to increase paging for that section so that we're not limited to 10 apps per page.

 

Reporting around apps would be helpful as well: when and by whom was an app marked as available? We'd also like to see reporting on app usage; the app use management screen is limited to the last month and Box Drive is still not included in this list.

Would be fantastic to have an option to see which Apps we have enabled.  And if I can be greedy - would be extra fantastic if you could export / report on this and include the App, # of users using etc.

 

But love the viability to now see all "official" Box apps at a glance.

Are there any plans to make it easier to see which unpublished apps we've whitelisted? Right now, it's just a list of client IDs. It'd really be nice if we could see the name of the App instead of the client ID.
