Automate mapping drives to Mac

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a user that takes her macbook home with her at night and when she comes into the office at work she needs mapped drives. I've entered logon scripts but she doesn't reboot when she comes in she just plugs in and gets to work. Is there a way to have a script run or somehow map drives automatically when she hops on the network? Somehow use the work network as the variable to trigger the event? Or just everytime she opens the lid it runs the script? Or gets an IP address?

Thanks in advance.

Just put aliases to her network drives on the desktop or in her dock. Then the drives will open whenever she double clicks the alias.
