Role-Based Security for Delegation
Show and give the ability to perform different functions to different people by their own group membership. Control what attributes people can see and edit at the field level. Optionally allow users to see and edit their own data.
Manage Data Across Multiple Platforms
Manage users, groups, and more in Active Directory, Azure Active Directory, and/or G Suite.
Complex Updates Made Easy
Configurable business rules make it so that very simple forms allow your end-users to safely perform functions that would otherwise include hours of data-entry. For example, you can create and configure a form where your end-user can change a directory object user’s location from a drop-down (no typos allowed). This single change could cascade into the user’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.
Deprovisioning Users and Other Objects
The concept of complex updates made easy also applies to user deprovisioning. You decide what happens when a user or other object is deprovisioned. For example, you may want to disable them, move them to a certain OU and replace one of their attributes with their deprovision date. What you do and how you do it is all controllable via configurable business rules. Also use these techniques to revive deprovisioned objects.

Manage groups and group membership with ease. Allow for situations where you only want people to edit/configure groups that they manage, for example.
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.
Clone users, contacts, groups, and/or computers. This is useful, for example, when you have a group with hundreds of members and need to create another group with a slightly altered membership.
Move users, contacts, groups, and/or computers. Search for what you need and move it where you want.
Password Change/Reset Multiple Users at Once
Allow end-users to change passwords or provide administrative password reset either to their own account or others.
Sometimes you need the ability to delegate password reset functions where no factors of authentication are required. One common example we see of this might be in a school or university environment where teachers and/or faculty need the ability to reset student’s passwords. Burdening the IT helpdesk and delaying classroom productivity is not a good option. In these cases multi-factor-authentication can be overkill since the student is there in person and can readily identify themselves.
PeopleUpdate allows you to reset passwords for users on multiple platforms in real-time. No more waiting for a sync.
When users change their password they also can affect multiple platforms in real-time simultaneously: they can use a single web interface to make password changes on multiple systems.
For a full self-service password reset solution (and more) with multi-factor authentication, see our solution PeoplePassword.
Delete users, contacts, groups, or computers in multiple platforms. This is a more radical alternative to deprovisioning and is generally only delegated as an administrative function.

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.
Responsive Mobile and Desktop Friendly Web Interfaces
UI looks good and is friendly no matter the device used.
