I am looking for a way to create a company directory with phone numbers, location, email addresses and such using my active directory.  It would be nice if the user could edit his own information, but no one elses.  Any ideas?  I'm using Server 2008 r2 and have a web server and such.

    There are some nice third party tools that are not super expensive that will allow you to do this without having to code/build your own.  One example here

    Another tool I should have mentioned

    Haven't used namescape but the directory update product I have.  We didn't want to build our own :)
