At a previous job we had a web based system that allowed users to log in and update the personal info that appears in the user account on A/D and GAL.  I believe it was using sharepoint but unfortunatley didn't have anything to do with that system at the time.

As usual, new job and i need to get this setup if possible.

So the question is, Whats the easest way to do this and what tools/software (sharepoint etc) do i need?

many thanks in advance.

You can do this through a website hosted on a Windows Server. This option is easy and free. You'll need to create a seperate AppPool and set it to run as a service account that has delegated rights to update the user information. Of course this requires that you or someone else can create the web page and needed code...
