The Need of the Moment...
With a welcoming spread of over twenty technical programs and five pre-university programs, the four-decade-old College Montmorency receives no less than 6000 freshers each year. While this figure looks lucrative to any college, they would also be very much aware of the hassles involved in creating new users in the Active Directory for the academic year's intake, and Montmorency was, in no way, an exception. However, one aspect of this process that Montmorency wanted to capitalize on was that most of the attributes required for the new entries stayed the same across the entire batch, and only a few attributes were dependent on the program that each student was enrolled in. This would drastically bring down the time and resources involved in creating a batch of new users in the Active Directory.
In an offline perspective, this can be easily effected on a spreadsheet - a role that Microsoft Excel's csv format fills far more than adequately. However, the real task was bridging the shallow yet wide gap between the 'csv' and the 'Active Directory' was to bring the data from the spreadsheet to the Active Directory without loss of fidelity.
ADManager Plus to the Rescue...
ManageEngine ADManager Plus came as a boon to the IT Infrastructure technicians in College Montmorency. Pre-defined templates work the wonder it takes to create a defined set of attributes for a particular class of freshers. This is appealingly garnished by the csv-bulk-users import option. All these features added up to a comprehensive Active Directory Management tool that ADManager Plus already is! Owing to all these advantages, without second thoughts, ADManager Plus still continues to be the undisputed choice of College Montmorency when it comes to Active Directory management and user administration.
