Group Management Portal

Microsoft Exchange™ Distribution Lists are a wonderful tool for collaboration in a dynamic business environment. This potential resource is underused in many environments, however, because many end-users don't want to - or can't afford to - go through the process of contacting IT and then waiting for a list to be created. Once it is created, users normally have to go through the same kind of process to add or remove users. All of this creates a barrier to using a powerful tool that your organization should be able to freely utilize.

 

Active Directory security groups and mail-enabled security groups are a powerful feature of Active Directory that suffer from exactly the same issues and barriers. Making it easier for end uses to create and manage security groups improves the ability of the business to collaborate securely and with greater efficiency.

 

The solution is to "out source" list and group management to the end-users themselves. Give your users the power to create distribution lists or security groups and manage the membership as they see fit. Allow other people to make requests to join lists or groups and allow the owners of the list or group (not IT!) the ability to approve or deny the request.
