Is there a way to customize what groups a new user gets automatically added to when their account is created? I know I can just create a dummy account and duplicate it each time, , but I thought that it was possible to say via policy that each account that gets created is automatically in certain security/distribution groups.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

Short answer is no. The usual way this is handled is either the duplicate account method already indicated or by scripting the account creation instead of using the GUI.

Thanks-for some reason I thought you could but using the duplicate method works just fine.


Appreciate the help!
