Groups with Members Reports

Many of our users have been asking whether or not MaxPowerSoft’s Active Directory Reports supports the simple groups with members reporting.  The simple answer yes it does.  I’m going to explain briefly here with screen shots exactly how to do this simple task.

So without much further ado, here are the steps.

1.  The first step we’re going to take is click on the “Groups” tab and select a report to run.

Run a basic "groups" report
Run a basic "groups" report

2.  Now that you’ve run a report that displays the groups, we want to drill down and locate the members for this group.  Do this by checking on the checkboxes of the groups you are interested in, or select the top most check box to check all the checkboxes.

Select the checkboxes on the groups you want to load the members for.
Select the checkboxes on the groups you want to load the members for.

3.  Now that you have selected the checkboxes, you have to tell AD Reports to run load the members.  We have two ways of doing this.  Right click on the pane containing the checkboxes and select “Load Members” Or you can simply click on the load button and select “Load Members”

Load members from the load menu located above the right-hand pane.
Load members from the load menu located above the right-hand pane.
Loading the members by right-clicking on the grid pane.

4.  Once all the selected members have finished loading you can drill down into the grid view to see the members.

5.  Now that we’ve loaded the groups and members we are interested in, let’s run a print preview!
