Temporary User ID's

Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I have temporary id's setup for agency nurses. The problem is that we never know more than a few hours ahead of time when these temporary nurses will start, so I have several passwords and temporary id's in sealed envelopes and instructed the supervisor to have a temp nurse sign for an envelope. I need the temp userid and / or password to expire x amount of hours after the first sign in. I do not want to delegate any user id control to the supervisors b/c of misuse issues we've had in the past (thats why we're short on staff).

I think Logon Hours and Account Expires (option found on the Account tab of the user profile) are the only ways to control this...  

I will look some more...but I don't know if this can be easily achieved.
You would probably have to write a custom script to check the accounts of the domain for last logon... and then expire the passwords after the X period of time.
