  • Autopopulate info into user account

    I am trying to figure out a way for AD to populate user information for me as i create new users in an OU.

    I want it to auto populate the
    website field, the address fields
    the company fax and company phone number
    and the email address.

    How can that be done?

    Its very tedious and would like a simple way to do this without having to touch every user.

    Thank you to all who reply.

    You can bulk edit some fields with ADUC and/or ADMODIFY.NET for all things that are the same (website maybe)
    Maybe other than that csvde can import from a csv - http://www.computerperformance.co.uk...VDE_import.htm

    Are you using Exchange?

        I believe this will populate the email address field for you automatically.

          I assume you mean 'standard' Windows Server 2003 (not the same as Server 2003 Standard edition) rather than SBS 2003? Using SBS, when you create a user you can select a template, which can be modified as necessary.
