AD Administration offers you granular control over permissions for users. By selecting one or more granular permissions, you can assign users with proper rights to manage OUs, groups and users.

You can define filters and extract information from the Active Directory using query filters which can be created through the GUI or entered as an LDAP query.
Any changes in Active Directory can be synced to SharePoint list. Also modifications occurring in SharePoint list can be synced to Active Directory, ensuring data consistency.
Auto Sync by Schedule
Automatically sync based on a custom schedule such as by minute, hourly or on a daily basis, making it easier to keep data up-to-date.
