We are currently looking to add an attribute in Active Directory. We would like to include "Employee ID". So when we create a new user in Active Directory we can include Employee ID. We use a custom application that requires a user to login via employee id so our programmer will setup AD integration so it logs them in automatically...

What I am looking for is help on adding this attribute. I have never done this. Anyone have pointers, and a how to? Thanks!

I added this and it worked! Thank you. I would like to see it added under "General" tab in ADUC. How do I do that?

That is a lot more complicated. I have never tried doing it becuase it is much easier adding to the right click menu. This link may give you a start if you want to attempt.
