    Active User Manager - use variable %username% not working

    I am trying to use Active User Manager to create bulk AD accounts and folders.

    I'd like to set the my documents folder to be something like \\server\share\%username%\docs

    This way I could prevent the desktop.ini issue causing multiple "My Documents" folders.

    However, in AUM, %username% doesn't seem to get parsed. It makes a folder called "%username".

    Anyone found a work around? Enough people use this program, so I hope so! Thank you.

    Never used that before but impero offer a free ad user import. We create controlled assessment accounts using it. Works a treat and will do what you need

    Great, although from the screen shots, it doesn't look like it lets you set permissions on the folders it will create. AUM does let you do this. Any ideas?

    I use AUM to create bulk AD users, to set home home directories for multiple users just go back to Active directory and use that for this task.

    You can however use AUM to set multiple group memberships.
