Just wanted to say thank you to all our Active Directory Auditing users out there. We’ve been collecting an array of testimonials and are thankful to all our users for their kind words. We just unveiled today a web page showing a handful of testimonials.
Whether you have good or negative feedback about our product we would love to hear it. Please come and let us know how you are using our product by visiting our contact us page.
Since we haven’t posted any blogs in awhile, I figured I’d give everyone the scoop on what is going on. We’ve been working feverishly on a new and improved user interface for Active Directory Reports. This interface includes some powerful new drag and drop reporting features as well as a more intuitive reporting model. You can expect for another release announcement to come out late next weekend! We’re planning on releasing then.
In other news, we’ve setup a new phone system for users to call into with any questions or support issues. All we ask is that you know we’re located in the United States in California, so just remember if it’s 2 AM over here, you’ll have to leave a voice-mail.
At MaxPowerSoft we’ve attempted to make our services more helpful based on user input from the community. We love user feedback and love to hear how you would like to enhance Active Directory Reports. In fact, the very reason we are writing this blog is because we have made an increasing number of enhancements unique to our current customers that requested each change.
So what have we done to make our product better than the competition? In this short 2 part series we will walk you through what makes our product help you handle real-time reporting accurately on your Active Directory installations.
MaxPowerSoft’s Active Directory Reports loads all domains in a current forest, including trusted domains.
User can see Password Policies and LDAP Attributes of any selected Domain.
Possibility to select / deselect domain controllers to include / exclude them from scanning when a user selects a report with non-replicated attributes (i.e. lastLogon).
There are 41 pre-defined user reports. Using General filter user reports can filtered by Created date/time, Changed date/time and can be limited by maximum number of records to load.
Using membership settings any user report can be loaded with several types of group membership. User can choose to load:
All groups except primary group.
All security groups including nested membership.
Group membership can be loaded with all attributes or only DistinguishedName attribute.
‘Selected User Properties’ window displays the detailed information about selected user including general user information, membership, security information and LDAP attributes.
This concludes part 1 of our recent changes. Part 2 will include changes to our Groups, Organizational Units, Computers and GPO. Thank you for taking the time to assess the changes we have made.
