Bulk password reset for Active Directory (AD) user accounts

Objective: To explain how to perform password reset in one go for multiple users in Active Directory(AD) using ADManager Plus.

The native AD tools do not offer any option to reset multiple passwords at once, and administrators use complex PowerShell scripts to perform such bulk management actions. With its built-in password reset feature, ADManager Plus makes the bulk password reset operation a simple, point-and-click activity.
