Bulk user import

Bulk user import with ADManager Plus

IT administrators face a big challenge when provisioning or modifying user accounts in bulk. It can be very stressful using Active Directory's (AD) native management console and writing complex PowerShell scripts to append and alter attributes for a group of users.

ADManager Plus allows you to carry out bulk user import for AD. With this feature, you can create and manage multiple user accounts in AD and simultaneously create Exchange mailboxes and new user accounts in Office 365 and Google Workspace for all desired users.

Keys actions using bulk user import

Bulk user creation

At the time of on-boarding, both new employees and IT administrators can suffer from time delays, human errors, and overcomplicated workflows. The challenge is to speed up processes such as getting personal data (name, surname, job title, department, etc.) to set up user accounts so that the new employees can start working right away.

Bulk user creation through CSV import

ADManager Plus lets you:

  • Import user attributes from a single CSV file and provision user accounts in bulk.
  • Add users by copying properties of another user.
  • Create and use templates with common user attributes.
  • Create users in an existing container or create a new OU in a domain and add users to it.

Bulk user modification

ADManager Plus allows mass modification of user attributes including Exchange, remote user logon, terminal services, and Skype for Business Server/LCS/OCS attributes. Administrators and help desk technicians can import users in bulk to carry out AD management functions quickly and consistently for specific container(s) such as an OU or domain from ADManager Plus' web console.

Some of the important attributes and their corresponding modifications using ADManager Plus include:

General attributes

  • Modify the name, display name, logon name, and SAM account name.
  • Enable or disable users, unlock users, reset passwords, and set user account expiration.
  • Set the home folder, profile, and script path for users.
  • Move users to a different container.
  • Update the membership of groups and distribution lists.
