CiviCRM

October 2, 2013

CiviCRM is a web-based, open source, Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) software geared toward meeting the needs of non-profit and other civic-sector organizations.

As a non profit committed to the public good itself, CiviCRM understands that forging and growing strong relationships with constituents is about more than collecting and tracking constituent data – it is about sustaining relationships with supporters over time.

To this end, CiviCRM has created a robust web-based, open source, highly customizable, CRM to meet organizations’ highest expectations right out-of-the box. Unlike proprietary software, each new release of this open source software reflects the very real needs of its users as enhancements are continually given back to the community.

With CiviCRM’s robust feature set,  organizations can further their mission through contact management, fundraising, event management, member management, mass e-mail marketing, peer-to-peer campaigns, case management, and much more.

CiviCRM is localized in over 20 languages including: Chinese (Taiwan, China), Dutch, English (Australia, Canada, U.S., UK), French (France, Canada), German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Swedish.

Download: create_ad_user.zip

These settings can, of course, be changed or extended (check  this Microsoft Technet Link to get an overview of all the settings that can be  set with the PowerShell New-ADUser Cmdlet).

Not only can the file be  extended (or decreased) it can also be altered. The column names can be changed  (note that you also need to change it in the PowerShell script), the columns can  be re-ordered, etc. The script will keep working, because it uses the column  names!

Note #1: This script makes use of the Active  Directory Module for PowerShell.

In the Excel file / Input CSV the following (general) structure was used (the  values are example values).
