I am looking for a script to reset the password age for a specific useraccount in our AD. I found the script that makes this happen:

$User = Get-ADUser username -properties pwdlastset 
$User.pwdlastset = 0 
Set-ADUser -Instance $User 
$user.pwdlastset = -1 
Set-ADUser -instance $User

Wat i need is a way for our helpdesk to use this script without having to change the username everytime they use the script. This can be done by adding a prompt to enter the username and a check if this is correct but i have no experience with powershell how to give a prompt to fill in a variable.

Can someone show me how this is done? I prefer to use it in combination with the function Show-Menu so i can add more functionality to the script in a later stage .
