AD Generic Login users

Last Modified: 2015-07-22
I have been tasked to create one generic domain user in Active Directory (Windows Server 2012 R2), and the plan is that around 50 different people are going to use this generic domain user.

The reason being that it is a call center, they all move around and nobody has an assigned computer, a single person could be siting in 3 or 4 different computers during the day.

Are there any special considerations regarding this set up?
Or is it just a matter of creating the user and letting them all log in to the domain with the same user at once?
