Bulk User

Active Directory Bulk User Management

Managing user accounts in Microsoft Active Directory is an open challenge to every IT administrator. Manual configuration of user properties using the native Active Directory tools or other options like PowerShell, etc. is extremely time consuming, tiresome, and error-prone, especially in large and complex windows network. Moreover, an in-depth knowledge of Active Directory and Active Directory management is an essential requirement to accomplish these tasks.

ADManager Plus is a web-based software that allows you to create and manage multiple user accounts in the Active Directory in a single action. Further, using this software, you can also create Exchange mailboxes, new user accounts in Office 365 and also G Suite for all the desired users, right while creating new accounts for them in Active Directory. It allows you to create multiple templates that contain standard user attribute values, which can be applied while creating users in bulk. You can import the user attributes from a single CSV file while creating user accounts, thereby minimizing the time and efforts needed when the native tools are used for Active Directory user provisioning. You can even export users with absolute ease using this tool which doubles up as a Windows permission management software.

This tool also allows delegation of rights to helpdesk technicians or non-administrators to create users. With delegation you will have ample time to focus on critical tasks as you are freed up from the repetitive and trivial tasks. Using reactive user account management, you can even manage multiple attributes of user accounts in just a single step. Further, this feature even allows you to set rules to automatically configure or update certain user attributes while performing user management tasks. Also, with the automated report generation utility, you can manage not just the user accounts but the entire Active Directory proactively and efficiently.

Using ADManager Plus, you can mass modify user attributes, including the Exchange Server (2003/2007/2010/2013) attributes and policies applied, Lync Server/LCS/OCS and Terminal Services attributes. You can try out all the user management and even the reporting features in this software using the trial version which is a free download that provides unlimited access to all features. Some of the common Active Directory management functions, administration and attribute changes that can be performed quickly and consistently include the following:
