What is Active Directory?

In layman's terms as it pertains to your visitor management application, your IT stores information about all of your people in Active Directory (AD). Things like their name, email address, phone number, division, job title, and more.

Visitor management software with MS Active Directory integrationSince your organization already has this information in one place, there is no reason to maintain it again in Greetly. By using our AD integration you can sync this information so the current employee roster always shows correctly.

Or, according to Microsoft:

A directory is a hierarchical structure that stores information about objects on the network. A directory service, such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), provides the methods for storing directory data and making this data available to network users and administrators. For example, AD DS stores information about user accounts, such as names, passwords, phone numbers, and so on, and enables other authorized users on the same network to access this information.

Active Directory stores information about objects on the network and makes this information easy for administrators and users to find and use. Active Directory uses a structured data store as the basis for a logical, hierarchical organization of directory information.
