Hello everyone,

I am looking for a way to reduce our helpdesk call volume. One of our most common calls consists of password resets. Does anyone have any experience with creating a custom mmc or web page and distributing that to say department leads or a specific contact within each department? This would help me out tremendously if someone can point me in the right direction.

Another approach might be to just let them do it themselves (assuming they still have access to a web browser):
