Hi Dirk

from long time ago in our company once we create new users accounts inside active directory we don't fill the information like address or manager name or in which department  this user work

so after some years we have now around 800 users so we need to find way to fill this info automatically

we will get this info from HR department . then i think i have to prepare CSV file or powershell script or find tool can help me

i never did this before so i don't know what is the best and easiest way to reach this

Use the following tool to export..
CSV Generator Tool
Use the following tool to import..
AD Manager Plus

Unfortunately you will have to add the info manually or if you know someone with mad Excel skills they should be able merge the HR report with the export of current AD and the you can Import the the new updated info.
