  • Changing Query Views

    What I want to modify is the view you get when you open an AD group on the left side tree view and open the members section. I would like to change the level of detail of information displayed for the users on the right side window. Thanks.

    Once the users are displayed in the right window, select them and right-click and choose Tabular Views.

      Re: Changing Query Views

      You have to do it the way Chuck outlined in the above post, because there isn't any 'View' for group members, as Active Directory does not have group members as an object that can be queried. I think that this is a really big flaw in the design of AD, but Microsoft will probably never fix it. Group membership is just a multi-valued attribute of a user, and a group's members are the same way.

        ok, so there actually is no way to include details like home directories, login script, location info, etc. when using the members view?

          Just by double-clicking on the Members object, no. Once you use the above procedure, though, you will see this information.

            Right, but what I want is a customized view. Is there a way to set one up in this situation?

              Yes, to modify the querys you get when you right-click on the users and choose Tabular Views->User(Detailed) you'll go to File->Manage Object View->AD Queries. Change the Query Type to Active Directory User, then click on User(Detailed) with Tabular in the Display Format column. Add the fields you want from there.
