Default Determining the remaining time of an activation password

Please Login to Remove!

We are implementing a large BES farm (14 servers), and are sending activation instructions to the users once they are provisioned. However, they don't always do as they're told, and may take longer than the normal 48 hours to activate their devices.

To remedy this, we've increased the activation expiration time to 720 hours (the max I believe). But would like to see if there is the ability to see how much time is left on that password before it actually expires? We've only done this recently, so I don't have any confirmation that the 720 hours actually works... as I've seen conflicting information on this limit.

While I realize I can simply see when the user was added and "do the math", was hoping there was a setting someplace I could look at to see the time remaining.

Thanks all,
