Bulk AD Users

Moving Active Directory users from one OU to another in bulk

This page describes how to bulk move Active Directory users from one organizational unit (OU) to another using ADManager Plus. While the native tools and PowerShell make this task cumbersome and tiring, ADManager Plus let you accomplish this in just a few mouse clicks.

You may need to move a user account from one OU to another when:

  • A user gets transferred from one department to another in an organization.
  • A user's account becomes inactive.
