Most reporting tools provide prebuilt reports that cater to some of an organization's reporting requirements, but not all. Admins are forced to use spreadsheets to stitch together data from multiple reports, when they are unable to fetch information using default reports. It becomes especially difficult when admins have to generate reports based on custom attributes created specifically for their organization or LDAP queries that they've written to fetch particular data, or use the same report to fetch data from multiple domains.
ADManager Plus offers Custom Reports that help admins meet their uniqueAD reporting requirements, letting them create reports based on various user, group, computer, contact, or custom attributes. With ADManager Plus, admins can:
ADManager Plus' Custom Reports provide comprehensive customization capabilities that help admins overcome the constraints of prebuilt reports.
The Add report to option helps categorize reports based on OU, department, and more, for effective and convenient report management.
The Select domains option helps organizations using multiple domains select all or some of their domains for reporting. The Selected OUs option helps restrict the scope of the search to select OUs.
With the Conditions option, admins can either set LDAP Filters manually by adding conditions or use Advanced Filters to create LDAP queries automatically by choosing the report type. Furthermore, they can also refine the results by specifying the conditions on which the reports need to be filtered. Here, admins can use user, group, computer, contact, or custom attributes as filters. ADManager Plus also provides the option to use a combination of many filters using AND/OR operators.
There is also an option to select attributes that will be displayed in the final report, thus helping admins trim down reports to suit their exact requirements.
ADManager Plus' Custom Reports feature is a compelling solution for administrators that need to generate precise reports for users, groups, computers, contacts, and custom attributes. Custom reports help admins save precious time and effort by giving them a way to set attribute filters and narrow their results to their exact requirements. Admins can also use LDAP queries instead of attribute filters to generate reports. ADManager Plus also offers admins the option to narrow their search down to the OU level and generate OU-specific reports. Once admins have created a report, ADManager Plus also helps them categorize, save, and re-use their custom reports. For organizations that use multiple domains, admins can use the same report across all domains, making reporting convenient.
