    2. Click the '+' icon located beside the Select the Container field. From the drop down menu, select the container to which you want to move the contacts.

    3. In Select Domain field, select the domain in which the contacts (that need to be moved) are located. If you want to further specify the OUs in which the contacts are located, click the Add OUs link and select the appropriate OUs.

    4. You can use either of the following options to list the contacts that have to be moved to a different OU:

      • Click the CSV Import link, then the Browse button, select the desired CSV file and click Go. In the new page that opens up, select the contacts which you want to move (select 'check all' if you want all the contacts in the list to be moved). In Search By, select the attribute based on which you want ADManager Plus to locate the required contact objects in Active Directory. Click Apply.


      • In the field Enter name(s) to search, enter the names of the contact objects that you wish to move. To search for multiple contacts, enter all their names, separated by commas. Click Search. To list all the contacts, just click Search without typing anything in the Search box. Now, use the check box to select the desired contacts and then click Apply.

    Note: After the contacts have been successfully moved, if you want to further modify them, click More Actions, and select the action that you want to perform (or the attributes that you wish to modify) in the Action option.
