Today one of my testers asked me if I had a PowerShell script that could add a user to 850 Active Directory Groups. I asked him why he didnt use the batch functionality in our Accelerator portal to solve this problem? He made a sigh and realised that the very reason we are developing the Infra Manager services in Accelerator is to automate tasks like this for local technicians and service desk staff.

After 45 seconds he said he was done!!! I was suprised that it was so quick and he showed me what he had done. Basically you didnt even need to batch it, since the 850 groups followed the same naming standard he could simply add them directly using the multiple select and a good search string. This time it was I who felt dumb!

Basically, who needs PowerShell? :-/
