Many companies use Active Directory Services to manage their users. With the addition of SharePoint, another user directory database has been introduced – the User Profile Database. But even with SharePoint features such as Single Sign On, and automatic importing of Active Directory profile information to SharePoint, the bulk of the workload to maintain user information is still on the Administrator. What is lacking is a way to allow the owners of the user information to maintain it themselves, both safely and securely, using either database as their directory service source.
Bamboo’s User Directory provides an easy to use, SharePoint-based, self-service directory that allows users to maintain user information in the SharePoint User Profile Database or Active Directory.
- View your user organization in a user-friendly tree view by organization chart or alphabetical order by last name.
- Users can view all profiles but can only edit their own depending on permissions set up for the type of directory service selected.
With the ability to view, search and print user profile information (such as resume or skill set), your directory services now provide value to your users as well as your entire company.
