When you click Create from Active Directory in Coding Definitions | Contacts, MainBoss opens a window that lets you obtain information from your Windows Active Directory.

To use this window, start by clicking Refresh from Active Directory. MainBoss will open a standard Active Directory search window. Under Enter the object names to select, enter a login name for the person you want to look up, then click Check Names. Windows will check to see if the login name actually appears in Active Directory. If so, the window will underline the login name and possibly expand it to show more information (e.g. the person's name). Click OK to accept the name or use the window's other facilities to search for the correct name. (Press <F1> to obtain information on using the window).

When you return to the previous window, the person's name will be filled into the list. Click Create Contacts to create a contact record using the information that has been retrieved from Active Directory. Then click Close to return to the Contacts table viewer.

For more information on contacts or Active Directory, see Contacts. For more information on creating or editing contact records, see Editing Contacts. For general information on table viewers, see Using Table Viewers.
