Changes to Admin Console Apps Page
We've made it easier for you to enable Box apps on the Admin Console. We've rolled out two separate sections for enabling applications: Official Box Applications and Third-Party Applications. Now you can clearly see which Box Managed Apps are enabled or disabled, making it easier to use Box apps such as Box Mobile and Box Drive.
 
Box Drive v1.15
This release consists of a visual enhancement to the UI and various bug fixes and stability improvements on Mac and Windows.  There are no significant end user changes.  Notable items within the release include:
  • Visual enhancement – In the Box Drive context menu we’ve added Box icons to the text menu items, making it a bit easier and faster for you to find and select what you want to do.
  • Bug fix/stability improvement -- We've addressed a conflict with Adobe InDesign files and the OS that caused freezes.
  • Bug fix/stability improvement -- We've resolved file load issues involving 32-bit apps on 64-bit machines.
  • Additionally, we resolved a crashing bug on Mac in some user environments.
  • Note: This release contains the changes from Box Drive v.1.14 that was skipped due to a crashing bug that has since been resolved.
New Box for Oracle NetSuite Integration
We are excited to announce that a new and improved Box for Oracle NetSuite integration is now available. The latest version of the integration, based on customer feedback, includes several key additions to improve admin configurations and enhance overall usability.
 
Update to Preview Sidebar
The Preview Sidebar is getting a makeover, starting with a vertical tab bar model instead of the current 'Activity' and 'Details' headers. This  streamlines navigation and opens the path for future updates coming soon.
 
Rolling out:
Changes to 2FA
Users will now receive numeric codes when 2-Factor Authentication is enabled on their Box accounts. Previously, users received an alphanumeric code. 
 
Coming Soon:
Update to Platform Activity Reports
You will now be able to view more detailed reports — including resources consumption by application as well as historical activity that provides archived monthly total usage — thanks to an update to the platform activity reports available in the Box Admin Console. The platform activity report enables you to monitor on demand your organization’s consumption of platform resources.  
 
Box for Android v4.19

This release of Android includes various stability improvements and bug fixes outlined below:

  • Users will see now an improved upload speed of larger files (more than 20 Mb)
  • This fix also reduced the chances of a ‘lost connection’ error for end users.
  • We uncovered a bug that continued to upload a file after a user hit ‘pause.’ Upon this release, users will no longer continue to experience their files uploading if they have opted to pause the upload.
  • Finally, we fixed an issue where the "conflicts with existing item” error message didn't show when there was a new upload of a file with the same name in the same location. This created a new version of the file on top of the existing file, but now users will be prompted with an error message.

This update of Android includes various bug fixes and enhancements as outlined below:
  • We discovered a bug where the 'Open in' functionality was not working and users were prompted with an 'An unknown error occurred...' message. Users should now be able to open files without an issue.
  • Initially, the Android app would display an error message if a user uploaded a file with the same name in the same location. To ensure users have a consistent experience on the WebApp and our mobile application, we  no longer show this message.
  • Certain push notifications would display the wrong avatar, but this update has resolved the avatar display issue.
  • Lastly, MobileIron users ran into issues where a blank screen would appear without actions upon a file upload. These users should no longer experience this.

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.
