Creating a User Account Template
A user account template is handy to use to setup multiple users. It allows you to
put in a lot of the account information, then copy the user for any new user accounts.
For example, if you marketing team has 5 groups they are members of and all reside in the same building, it would make sense to create a dummy user account with all of that information and then copy it whenever adding a marketing user.
- Create a new user account using the instructions above. Name the user to reflect the group the account represents (for example, Marketing Template).
- Change the account properties using the instructions above. Make sure you disable the account so it cannot be actively used on the domain.
- Right-click on the template account and choose Copy. You can then create a copy of this account using the standard new user wizard.
- Right-click on the new user account and make any changes necessary to its properties.
