Create a group of previously created groups aka nested groups
We have a group of providers that we would like to make a larger super-group of the nested smaller groups instead of adding each individual user
At this time, we are developing solutions for using groups to grant access to apps and enterprise settings. https://pulse.box.com/forums/909778/suggestions/36670615
Supporting nested groups may be a longer term vision that we consider after solving the first problem above.
We have groups for teams and departments.
It would be nice to have this feature to avoid the implementation of separate scripts during the on boarding process to grant automatic access to Box to different users.
We manage people into different countries and it should be suitable to have the possibility to create a main group country with all referred smaller groups attached to this last. This give the possibility to manage root groups and build biggers by using roots one.
To sum up, get the possibility to manage sub-groups into main ones.

We have existing groups for teams and departments. These in turn roll up into larger organizational units which are comprised of these smaller groups. Within Box today we need to take an export of each of these smaller groups to create those larger department and business groups and requires a separate load script to do this. It would be much cleaner to allow a Box group to contain another Box group.

We rolled out Box to different departments and have to create groups to manage that process.
We want the ability to create sub groups so e can analyze usage across groups and sub groups as well as easily apply permissions.
