Manage Active Directory contact attributes

ADManager Plus is a web-based tool that allows you to configure various attributes of Active Directory contact accounts during creation, and modify those attributes later without having to rely on Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) and Active Directory Service Interfaces Editor (ADSI Edit). Using ADManager Plus, you can also update contact attributes in bulk, either manually or automatically and view the attribute values in pre-defined or custom reports.
