Delegate user management capabilities to specific users, so they can view users,
change passwords, create and manage users and groups, and edit AD profiles, all
within a predefined OU, using a simple, centralized user interface.
Managing a large number of users and multiple groups within an Organization Unit
(OU) can be difficult in SharePoint, and usually requires heavy IT involvement.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could allow managers to create and remove their own users,
reset passwords, and change group settings using a simple, centralized interface?
User Manager for Sites lets you do just that. You can define which specific users
within your organization can modify user information, and which Organizational Unit
(OU) they can affect. You can even exclude specific accounts from being accessed
by the product. User Manager for Sites provides you with the flexibility to decide
who can manage users, and which users they can manage.
User Manager for Sites provides administrators or specific users with access to
a simple, SharePoint-based application that lets them maintain and organize user
access security information for Sites in a Site Collection. Managers can create,
modify, or remove both users and groups from a single interface. Multiple default
views allow managers to handle large numbers of users easily. Create users with
multiple group access instead of having to do it one group at a time.

Bamboo's User Manager for Sites is a single Web Part that allows SharePoint Administrators
to delegate user administration to Site Administrators. Designated Site Administrators
can create, modify and delete users, create and delete groups, remove users from
multiple groups at one time, e-mail a user or a group, and reset user passwords.
SharePoint Administrators can configure the Web Part to also restrict where users
are created in Active Directory.
To use the Bamboo User Manager for Sites:
1. Just install the User Manager for Sites on your SharePoint server as you would
any other Web Part.
2. Add the Web Part to any page in your Site Collection. You can manage users in
all site collection sites from any site within the Site Collection.
3. Access the tool pane for this Web Part and configure it for use with Active Directory
and SharePoint or just Active Directory. You can also set the SharePoint group who
is authorized to access and perform actions in this Web Part.
4. Site Collection Administrators can also configure a few settings from the Web
Part itself, including your e-mail settings, excluded users, Active Directory properties
to be included during new account setup, and selecting which Active Directory properties
you want to show in the user's profile. Once these settings are configured once,
they are global for all User Manager for Sites Web Parts within a Site Collection.
5. If you want to have User Manager for Sites on more than one site in the same
Site Collection, you can configure the Web Part to create users in a different OU
in the same domain, but the Settings options accessed from the Web Part itself are
global to the Site Collection itself. So the Settings options only need to be configured
once for all User Manager for Sites Web Parts added to sites in a Site Collection.
6. Send a group e-mail to your authorized access user group to let them know they
can start managing their users right away and where the Web Part is located.
