Great Active Directory Management Tool that is well regarded in the industry and incredibly simple!

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

When we recently implemented Active Directory, we needed a management tool that would allow our System Admins to make changes for users and groups, but not have direct access to the Domain Controllers. Anyone I reached out to for recommendations referred me to ADManager Plus, and I am now one of the users who refers this solution as well. It was incredibly easy to implement, and is easy to learn...

Cons

My only negative is that it can sometimes take a while to get a hold of a support person when there is an issue. I have waited a couple of days in the past (mid-week, not over a weekend). It appears they have outsourced their support staff, which may contribute to the problem of having a wide window of coverage, but I expect better from a large company like Zoho who has such great products. On top of that, the information on the customer forums is not usually useful or correct - so I have avoided it entirely since a few botched attempts early on.

Well made product

Reviewed a year ago

All in all, this product is really well made and it will facilitate your management of the Azure environment in a professional way, I would recommend using it.

Pros

The most important feature of this product is having the ability to do bulk user management and file server permission management.

Cons

The Professional tier is a little expensive compared to the standard tier but other than that I don't see anything else.

ME ADManager Plus can really overhaul your onboarding and user management.

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, based on the price and the time saving it's generated for us, it's been totally worth the money and effort to deploy.

Pros

The automation features. We could script our onboarding in powershell have it work. But being able to configure all the various job titles and have it add O365 licensing, groups, teams in MS Teams and phone numbers with a few clicks is SOOOO much easier to make happen.

Cons

There was just too many features for us and I feel like we were leaving a lot on the table for the specific features we needed.

Must Have Tool for Any AD Administrator in Any Organization

Reviewed 5 years ago

I am now an avid fan and supporter of ManageEngine. ADManager Plus was the first tool I purchased from them, and I now have 4 other tools that are in use within my organization. The support staff gets back to you quickly when you have questions and are very helpful, and the pricing is very reasonable for what is offered.

Pros

This has made complicated AD reports a thing of the past. Once I got the hang of creating automated reports, this quickly became my favorite AD tool. I also use it for user and group management, which is also much easier than doing from a Domain Controller.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve, and the little bit of documentation that there is leaves a lot to be desired. I often have to call support for more complicated inquiries.

Reviewed 6 years ago

AD auditing is great

Pros

The application is easy to use. The chat function to get technical support is great. They constantly has new functions to provide to users.

Cons

The website interface ManageEngine AD360 can be more user friendly. Jumping from one module to another may not always works.

Simplicity

Reviewed 5 years ago

I immediately jumped on this software when taking over a new position due to the speed and simplicity of which it allows me to bulk manage users and apply customized templates.

Pros

This software allows me to quickly and easily manage hundreds of users with only a few clicks. Rather than time-consuming Powershell scripts, I can make many templates and apply that template to bulk users.

Cons

Many features are grouped into the Pro license. My particular usage would benefit from a few of those features, but the added cost of the higher license level is not justifiable for the small amount of additional features I would actually use.

Educational User/IT Administrator

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have had a positive experience with the free version, but do wish I had some of the other features as well.

Pros

It makes working with bulk users in active directory easy, I have used it to import a large number of students to our active directory system, also used to make modification to large number of users. It is easy to use and understand.

Cons

The cost is high and my IT Director won't pay for it, so I am stuck using the free version (which does what I need it to , but there is so much more that can be done with it).

management of active directory made easy

Pros

Upgrades, ease of use, If you do have any issues this is the best software I have ever seen offering support. I would recommend to any company with an active directory environment. Thank you so much for all that you do.

Cons

Not much that I do not like.. It is helping implement our security into our active directory. Maybe the cost but honestly I think it is worth every penny

AD Manage Plus - A new way to Manage your AD

Reviewed 3 years ago

When it comes to cost factor, this product is totally worth the money that you pay.

Pros

The most loved feature is you are able to make bulk modifications to the Active Directory using ManageEngine AD Manager Plus.

Cons

When it comes to cloud based architectures like Office 365, it is better if integration with Office 365 can be made easy.

AD Manager Plus makes my job so much easier.

Reviewed 6 years ago

It makes it so much easier to update, or report on both my AD and users, and also my Office 365 environment.

Pros

The functionality and value is huge. It allows me to better manage my users, and makes it much easier to apply changes to a group.

Cons

It's not very intuitive. It can do a lot, but the learning curve is steep. I've had to contact support several times for "how to" assistance.

Affordable and a real time saver. Support team is great!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Time Savings

Pros

We use this software mainly for user creation. The ability to create users for both AD and Office 365 in one step is helpful. The interface is very user-friendly. Both single and bulk user creation works really well. Reporting is well thought out.

Cons

The Copy User Attributes function only copies Active Directory information. It would be great if it could copy a user's Office 365 setup (License type, Distribution Group membership, etc.) along with Active Directory information.

Very powerful tool for automation

Reviewed 4 years ago

We've managed to automate parts of our account creation process that formerly relied on manual PowerShell scripts, which caused problems as the scripts were difficult to update to reflect changes in the environment.

Pros

Very useful and powerful tool for automating account creation, allows you to reduce your reliance on aging scripts and empowers those without comprehensive scripting knowledge to automate processes.

Cons

Interface is a little dated, licensing for education could be cheaper as it is very useful for small teams but may be out of their budget.
