Creating Active Directory groups is quite complex as multiple factors like the types and scopes of groups, their members, the owners or manager, whether the group members can receive emails, etc. have to be configured to actually ensure that the groups cater to your organizational demands. This forces the administrators to take up the task of creating new groups themselves.
If you happen to use only the native AD tools or other regular options like PowerShell scripts, Active Directory group creation could well become a long drawn process. But ADManager Plus's group creation templates turn creating new groups in your Active Directory, immaterial of whether they are Distribution Groups or a Security Groups, configuring all their properties and also adding members to them into a single-step activity.
Using these templates you or your administrators can configure the important attributes and delegate the templates to allow non-administrative users or helpdesk technicians to create new groups in a secure, simple manner and in turn shed the excessive burden off your back.
Moreover, the 'drag-n-drop' customization option in group creation templates helps you to tweak the templates to meet your organizational needs and policies, with just simple UI based actions. These templates help you to set up:
Unlike the native AD tools, ADManager Plus's group creation templates make it possible for you to create a new group and also configure all the necessary attributes and even add members to it as well as specify its membership to other groups, all in just one single step. These templates make creating new groups in your Active Directory a quick and short no-fuss process.
Based on the helpdesk technician to whom the templates will be assigned, you can customize the templates by simply clicking on the required fields, dragging them from the field tray and dropping them into the appropriate tabs in the templates. This customization feature grants you the much needed flexibility to specify which attribute(s) can be configured by which technician. Customization option also helps you protect critical group attributes from unsafe or unwanted changes by making them hidden or read-only.
Whenever new groups have to be created in Active Directory, the helpdesk technicians can simply use the templates assigned to them, fill in the allowed or visible attributes to create new groups, in an instant, one-step process. These templates thus make it possible to chop the additional burden off your back and assign them to other non-administrative users in a secure manner.
