Really the one feature that I consider makes it a "managed" solution. Would love it if the controller could automatically pick channels and power strength. Preferable on a regular basis to adapt to any new sources of interference or if adding in a new AP.
An option in the unifi voucher manager page to delete multiple vouchers without pressing each time one by one to delete, for example an option to delete all used, and an option to delete all the vouchers the new ones and the used ones all together,and the expired too ofcourse, without deleting one by one, its a top requested feature by many business , hope very soon to see this. example in the picture above.....
The statistics page needs more useful, granular data. Specifically, I'd like to see this page graph bandwidth statistics instead of transfer amounts. This would enable admins to gauge saturation of uplinks, etc. Transferred amount seems significantly less relevant than bandwidth utilization.
The addition of bandwidth usage by access point, and by user to the statistics graphs would also seem very important.
I believe this would be a huge asset to the the unifi controller. CloudTrax / OpenMesh implementation of this is an excellent example:
It would be nice if you could schedule upgrades of your access points with Unifi.
When changes are made in the UniFi GUI, the AP's immediatly applies changes, causing a reboot/reprovision, usually of multiple access points. Most of the time I find that I need to make multiple changes, which results in multiple reboots, most of the reboots could be avoided.
I propose that configuration changes not be applied immediately but rather that the UI offer an APPLY CHANGES button. Or even an option to apply changes in a rolling fashion or on a per-device basis, much like the existing "Upgrade" firmware option. This would enable a minimum of disruption when configuring, especially in places where an AP client is covered by more than one AP.
It would be great and vastly more secure to have an option to use Two Factor Authentication to sign into unifi.ubnt.com. Considering the cloud site offers complete access to all of a person's controllers, and the only auth method currently is a single username and password...
Google Auth support would be nice.
I have been using Aerohive Aps for quite a while now and 1 feature that is really nice is the ability to have a heatmap of the site in the online hive manager. Similar to the Ubiquiti implementation, but it recognises walls and other structures and adjusts the coverage radius accordingly. The user has to manually draw the walls locations and select what type of material (i.e. Concrete, Brick, Drywall, Wood...etc). Then you have a pretty accurate visual display of your coverage area taking into account the structure around it.
I hope that makes sense,
VLAN assignment from a radius server.
This is where an SSID is advertised which connects users to different vlan's based on the response to their authentication on the radius server.
This is a must have feature for many organisations.

There is an beta of this firmware available. I just posted it in the UniFi Wireless Beta section.
Sign up for Beta:
Gen1 hardware (UAP, UAP-LR, UAP-OD, UAP-OD5, PicoM2, UAP-Pro, UAP-OD+):
Gen2 hardware (UAP-AC-PRO, UAP-AC-LR, UAP-AC-LITE):
Please don't store the passwords (admin/user/...) in clear text (if anybody manages to get into the machine hosting the controller, people will have a leak).
Passwords should be salted and hashed, and the password reset functionality could be done through a script that will simply set a new password in the database.
As the title says, would allow much greater flexibility in how customers deploy the UniFi AP's
I would like to see per SSID MAC filtering (Allow all, whitelist, blacklist etc), I realise MAC filtering provides a limited amount of security however it is an important tool in a layered security approach.
Ideally this could be implemented per SSID so that you can run a whitelist (allow only listed MACs) on the corporate network, and allow all (potentially with blacklist) on a guest network.
I've just come across Facebook Wifi, I know a few others have been doing 'like for internet' via facebook, how about Ubnt integrate this into Unifi?
The alert system needs some tweaking. My controller is off site in the NOC and monitors everything remotely. If a site has it's internet connection drop, the controller will send every admin for that site an email for every AP that went down. This is a really bad way of doing things... As a result, I turn emailing off. Example- I have a site with 50 access points and 4 admins. If the connection drops, it sends 200 emails!
1- Delay sending the first email for a minute or two, if more or all of the ap's go down during that delay, send ONE email with either all ap's listed or that says the site is down.
2- Add an option to send emails only to specific users instead of all users.
3- Send alerts when devices come back up, but following the rules of #1
Blocking users should work per SSID that way an admin can force a user off one network and onto another.
I get messages when the AP is Disconnected.
How about a follow up message to say that it has Reconnected.
Allow Minimum RSSI to be uniquly set for each radio in the Unifi GUI. If you have reservations that non technical users will not know how to tune these setting properly, make it so that a simple line in config.properties will enable and unhide these control elements in the GUI.
Come on UBNT I believe in YOU!
it's already possible to enable SNMPv1 on UniFi APs and, through it, gather some basic network informations. It would be awesome to gather some specific WiFi parameters as well, like number of connected clients (total), number of users, number of guests, etc etc etc. Maybe that's already possible, but not having the MIB published makes it very difficult (to not say impossible) to guess which OID the informations are.
So, please Ubiquiti, get the UniFi APs MIB published !

Managing Admins in Unifi needs to be SIMPLE in 3.X onward
I propose a Manage Admins Page. On the page we would have a list of Adminsitrators for ALL SITES.
From here you can create, edit, or delete an admin (For specific or ALL Sites)
Admin Type GLOBAL or SITE
Global Admin = Can manage EVERYTHING... (Special Option "FOUNDER" ONLY a FOUNDER can manage a FOUNDER)
Site Admin = Can manage only sites that are checked of a list. (Special Option "Manage Admins" can add remove or edit site admins for sites which he/she has access to)
Example Adam installs the server he runs an IT firm. He is set to Global Admin (Founder=ON)
Adam needs his second in command to be able to manage his customer sites. Adam add John as a Global Admin (Founder=OFF).
John install a new customer (Car Dealership) creates the new site in the existing controller and adopts the AP's. The end user says I need my local IT tech Bob to be able to manage these and update passwords.
John adds another users "Bob" as Site Admin (Manage Admins=ON) for Site "Car Dealership"
Bob needs his tech "Tim" who is in on the weekends to have admin access to the site. Bob adds Tim as Site Admin (Manage Admin = OFF)
Adam is a Global Admin and can manage all sites. He also is a founder so he can not be removed by any NON-FOUNDER.
John is a Global Admin for all sites. He can do anything except remove Adam.
Bob is a Site Admin for One Site Only. He can add new site admins or manage that Site Only.
Tim is a Site Admin for the same site as Bob. He can't add admins. He can only manage that site only.
Duplicates (Includes requests for Admin Permission Levels)
We have about 30 sites in our Unifi Controller, and really missing a dashboard/status page for all sites that you have access to.
Basically the existing top bar for each site listing active/inactive/pending APs and number of Users/Guests would be enough. But it would also be nice to be able to list all APs for all sites in one page that is filterable so you can easily check status per AP, reboot and update.
@UBNT-Brandon Edit 28 Jan. 2016:
We have now implemented this to some degree, but for monitoring multiple controllers.
We will also implement 'all sites overview' for a single controller with multiple site as well.
(Note, I was wrong on a previous edit, this edit corrects that.)
To use 'monitor multiple controllers' feature, enable Cloud access in each controller (4.8.12+), and go to unifi.ubnt.com. We will be improving this as we go, but at least for now it should cover a lot of what you need.
A quick example (from my small set of controllers - work and home):
Enable Cloud access (requires 4.8.12+ for operation):
unifi.ubnt.com (requires Chrome for access):
- sanandreas on: Ability to remove default site when multiple sites available
- sanandreas on: list cloudkey on ubnt device liston controller not in client list
- sanandreas on: DCHP settings ability to reserve IP address to a device MAC address in controller
- sanandreas on: USG has too many limitations. Basic functions on most other routers are missing or not supported
- jmorgan_xx on: New Product: Unifi MoCa
- jprillhart on: Unifi Controller Refresh Rate Setting
- mnaz on: When using Unifi it would be nice to be able to force a backup, rather then wait for the autobackup.
- scott_thomson on: Multi-tenant UniFi controller
- Jardin_Espanol on: To be able to see a history of temperature and to be able to get over temp alerts
- Jardin_Espanol on: Switch Stats, allow LAG groups to show stats for the group
- [Request] Logging failed attempts for Network
- Allow access to the controller for Ubiquiti Live Support.
- Video NVR: Categorize , Label recorded Videos
- Notes field to record helpful info
- Better error msg when setting up controller password. Not clear enough
- Ability to remove default site when multiple sites available
- list cloudkey on ubnt device liston controller not in client list
- DCHP settings ability to reserve IP address to a device MAC address in controller
- Ability to set either WAN1 or WAN2 as primary on USG
- Port forwarding WAN2 on USG not supported on controller. Accepted 11/17/2016 still waiting
