WiseSoft Bulk AD Users - Beta Testing
Beta testing for WiseSoft Bulk AD Users is now available!
Hope you like the new application. Any feedback is welcome.
WiseSoft Bulk AD Users is a tool that makes it easy to perform bulk updates to Active Directory User account attributes. Previously you might have wrote scripts to perform these types of updates or gone through a very tedious process of performing these updates one at a time via the ADU&C interface. Bulk AD Users makes this process much simpler and also provides an XML log file that allows you to undo any unwanted updates.
The application has powerful query capabilities that allow you to select the user accounts you want to update. The Bulk Modify feature allows you to update user account attributes using an interface very similar to the user dialog in Active Directory Users and Computers. This is ideal when you want to update an attribute to a specific value for all user accounts and it's also flexible enough to allow you to base your update on existing attributes. The CSV Update and Edit In Excel features provide an alternative method of updating user data, allowing you to perform updates that can't be based on the values of existing attributes.
WiseSoft Bulk AD Users was previously a part of the Password Control application called Bulk Password Control. The name was no longer appropriate for the application as it allows you to update virtually any user attribute, so a decision was made to name the application "Bulk AD Users". A decision was also made to separate this tool from the Password Control application, as the tool is targeted more towards network administrators than helpdesk staff. The new application is faster, more efficient and has more features than it's predecessor.

Thanks. Will check it out.
I used your bulk user creator for creating this years new students. Was excellent.

Two separate tools, but they do have some overlapping features. Both applications model part of the interface on the user dialog in Active Directory Users and Computers.

ADModify has limited support for updating multi-valued attributes and there are a number of other advantages to using my tool over ADModify. ADModify also has some useful features that you won't find in Bulk AD Users - better support for exchange attributes for example.

Kool, I havent tested yr tool yet. But it seems like a one stop for bulk updates to account (AD). I normally use DSMOD and MS Tool ADmodify, but yr looks interesting. Will check it out.
