I was able to extract first name and last name by using these command

dsquery user -name * -limit 0 | dsget user -fn -ln >c:\users_list.txt

How do I extract the date created ?

ActiveDirectory module requires the 2008R2 AD Web Services. That is the reason the Quest AD modules are there - and they should be used, as they make life easier.
Get-QADUser | select FirstName, LastName, email | Export-Csv -NoType C:\temp\users.csv

Powershell without the need for AD Cmdlets:
Function Get-ADSIUser {
[CmdletBinding()]
Param(
	[string]$SamAccountName = '*',
	[string[]]$AttributeList = @()
)
	If ($AttributeList.Count -eq 0) {
		$AttributeList = @(
			'createTimeStamp'
			'displayName'
			'distinguishedName'
			'givenName'
			'name'
			'sAMAccountName'
			'sn'
			'userPrincipalName'
		)
	}
	Try {
		$RootDSE = [ADSI]'LDAP://RootDSE'
		$ADODBConnection = New-Object -ComObject 'ADODB.Connection'
		$ADODBConnection.Provider = 'ADsDSOObject'
		$ADODBConnection.Open('Active Directory Provider')
		$ADODBCommand = New-Object -ComObject 'ADODB.Command'
		$ADODBCommand.ActiveConnection = $ADODBConnection
		$BaseDN = "LDAP://$($RootDSE.defaultNamingContext)"
		$Filter = "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(samaccountname=$($SamAccountName)))"
		$ADODBCommand.CommandText = "<" + $BaseDN + ">;" + $Filter + ";" + ($AttributeList -Join ",") + ";subtree"
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Page Size').Value = 1000
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Size Limit').Value = 10000
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Timeout').Value = 60
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Cache Results').Value = $False
		$RecordSet = $ADODBCommand.Execute()
		If ($RecordSet.EOF) {
			"User '$($SamAccountName)' not found!" | Write-Warning
		} Else {
			Do {
				$ADUser = '' | Select-Object -Property $AttributeList
				ForEach ($Attribute In $AttributeList) {
					$ADUser.$Attribute = $RecordSet.Fields.Item($Attribute).Value
				}
				$ADUser
				$RecordSet.MoveNext()
			} Until ($RecordSet.EOF)
		}
	} Catch {
		Throw $_
	} Finally {
		If ($RecordSet) {$RecordSet.Close()}
		If ($ADODBCommand) {[Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::FinalReleaseComObject($ADODBCommand) | Out-Null}
		If ($ADODBConnection) {
			$ADODBConnection.Close()
			[Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::FinalReleaseComObject($ADODBConnection) | Out-Null
		}
	}
}

Get-ADSIUser | Select-Object samAccountName, givenName, sn, createTimeStamp | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\users_list.csv

Run this command in an elevated command prompt from the domain controller to get an output of users and date created in a CSV file...

csvde.exe -f "C:\AD-Users.csv" -r objectClass=user -l DisplayName,objectClass,userPrincipalName,givenName,sn,whenCreated

Open in new window


Keep in mind that the date in the whenCreated column will be formatted like this ... YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.  Therefore, "20160101062541.0Z" means that the account was created on 1 Janurary 2016 at 06:25:41 local time.

Is it possible to query the user's date created on Active Directory on the management console?

Are you asking about Server Manager or Active Directory Users and Computers?

Not that I am aware of from either.

In ADUC, first go the "View" menu and enable "Advanced Features".
Then open the properties of the object, and you'll find a tab "Object" with the Created and Modified dates.

Of course, but not without going into each individual account.
