Active Directory contact management is easy with Web Active Directory’s PeopleUpdate. Easily delegate functions the way you want with control down to fields that can be seen and edited by your users. Enable powerful more involved updates with configurable forms that are easy to use.
Complex Updates Made Easy
Configurable business rules make it so that very simple forms allow your end-users to perform functions that would otherwise include hours of data-entry safely. For example, you can create and configure a form where your end-user can change a contact’s location from a drop-down (no typos possible). This single change could cascade into the contact’s OU, group membership, and several attributes changing in the backend according to business rules you’ve set up. For your end user, it’s a single selection and click. This replaces the drudgery of trying to do this manually using the operating system or cloud tools.
You can also configure and provide your users update forms which allow people to view and edit directory attributes more directly.
This is useful, for example, when you have a contact who is a member of hundreds of groups and need to create another contact with similar membership requirements.
Allow end-users to search for contacts within a certain scope to move them to areas also under your control.
Display a tree-view or org chart in Active Directory. This is useful to see the chain of management quickly without having to search for multiple contacts.
You can allow your end-users to search for contacts in a scope you control to deprovision them.
Show and give the ability to perform different functions to different people by their own group membership. Control what user attributes people can see and edit at the field level.
Configurable Input Forms
Completely customize your end-user’s input forms they use for updates without the need to write any script or code. Control what they see and can edit, validation of required fields, contents of dropdowns, employ lookups into your directory based on the first few letter your user’s type, input masks, and more. The software comes with several default forms which work out of the box that you can duplicate and customize.
Transform Input Data Any Way You Want and Put it Where You Want
Transform data from your end-users inputs on update forms. Typical examples might include formulating a user’s email address based on their name or a group’s name based on its location and the title of its manager. Complex transformations are also possible.
After your data is exactly how you want it, you can put it into any attribute you want no matter the object you’re updating.
Record Keeping and Notifications
Optional notifications when an object is updated. Email templates are fully configurable and can include raw or transformed data from the update process. You can have different emails go out to different people– as many as are needed. Full record keeping of update actions by user, object, and platform.
