As an administrator (admin), you have control over each end user in your Box enterprise account. Box has multiple end users.
- Managed user: Most often a user that has been created within your Admin Console. Box Admins and Co-admins have control over these users, you will have the ability to edit, delete, enforce security settings, and run activity reports on these users.
- External user: An External user is someone you have invited to collaborate in your Box account via a collaboration invitation. An External user is still a person who has a Box account, but the account was not created directly from within your own Box Admin Console. While you are still able to share and collaborate with External Users, your management capabilities over external user accounts are limited to the folders to which you have invited them.
- Outbound Collaborators: An outbound collaborator refers to a who is collaborating in Box with another user outside your enterprise, in folders that are also outside your enterprise. Because the content that is being collaborated on is not under your enterprise's control, the only visibility into this collaboration is provided in the Outbound Collaborators Report.
