How to populate user profile

  Asked By: Hunter    Date: Sep 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 1115

On our MOSS 2007 site we would like to populate the user profile info
without actually using My Sites. We have the permissions from My Sites
removed so that users do not have access, although User Infomration is
still viewable, e.g. from MY Settings or a people search. We have
imported user data from AD, but it is not complete, just user names and
email. What we would like is a way for our admin staff to update user
profiles. We do not want to give admin staff direct access to AD via
Users and Computers, nor do we want to give them access to the SSP
admin site. I am wondering if there is a 3rd party tool or some way
that would allow access to either AD or MOSS to add and update user

We looked at WebDir but foolishly decided to go with a much more
complicated route. WebDir allows users to edit certain fields in AD and
it wasn't too expensive.

There are a few 3rd party tools from Bamboo Solutions that allow your
users to update their user  profile and also sync it with AD, if
desired. You can download a free trial and try it out at
