Contact Management

Active Directory Bulk Contacts Creation

Active Directory contacts include information about a person or business, such as phone numbers, email addresses, and fax numbers. Creating and managing AD contacts is vital for organizations, as contacts can be listed in a Global Address List (GAL) or another address list, allowing users to access contact information and send messages. While it's easy to manage a handful of contacts using Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC), it becomes exponentially more difficult when there's an increase in the number of contacts, prompting a need for bulk management tools.

How to create contacts in Active Directory

ADManager Plus is a simple Active Directory management and reporting tool that eases the process of creating and managing contacts. Some of the contact management actions that can be done using ADManager Plus include:

  • Creating a single contact.
  • Creating bulk contacts.
  • Creating contacts using drag-and-drop, customizable templates.
  • Creating contacts by setting mandatory attributes.
  • Modifying contacts in bulk.

Single Contact Creation

ADManager Plus helps you create an Active Directory contact object - in one shot, with all the Active Directory contact attributes configured in a single step. Using the contact creation templates, you can:

  • Create and use templates to assign values to attributes while creating AD contacts.
  • As required, set up mandatory attributes while creating AD contacts.
  • As required, create a contact in any container.

After you create Active Directory contact objects using ADManager Plus, you'll never want to use ADUC again.

Bulk contact creation

With its bulk contacts creation feature, ADManager Plus allows you to import contacts in Active Directory using a CSV file. The solution eliminates the time-consuming process of creating individual contacts and using command tools, making AD contact management simple, flexible, and trouble-free.

Template Based Contact Creation

Active Directory administrators are frequently faced with situations where they have to assign specific values to certain attributes; they need to prevent a user from entering a value for some attributes, or they must remove or hide unnecessary attributes. Such freedom in contact management isn't possible with native Active Directory tools, not to mention the fact that it requires complex scripting.

ADManager Plus, on the other hand, allows you to create and use contact creation templates, which help you choose the required attributes and assign specific values to these attributes-- all in one single step. These templates can be used to create a single contact, or you can create multiple contacts in one shot.
