AD, creating users, creating home folders

Environment is Server 2012 domain with Windows 7 computers.

I have a help desk person who creates new users in AD.  She has delegated permissions to create new users.  BUT, I have recently learned that when she assigns their H: drive or home folder, she doesn't have create rights on the directory.

Now I don't want to grant her those rights at the folder level as only five users/groups have that (creator owner, system, domain admins, administrators, backup exec) but in AD, when delegating control, I'm not certain what rights to allow for her so that she CAN create the folder.

Am I doing it in the right place?  How do I allow this helpdesk person to create new users and have permissions to create the home folders?

You would set these permissions on the actual server/share.

that doesn't sound right.  I should be able to delegate rights in AD and have the create folder ability without having to manually add the helpdesk user to the folder permissions list.

AD can only do what it is given permission to do.
