Home Folder Lifecycle

The tenfold home folder lifecycle plugin manages the life cycles of user directories (home folders); it creates user accounts and directories automatically.

What Does the Home Folder Lifecycle Plugin Do?

The Home Folder Lifecycle plugin helps automate routine tasks, such as generating new user directories when new user accounts are created.

If a user switches to a different office, the plugin automatically transfers that person’s home folder to the file server at the new location. If the person leaves the company, the plugin automatically archives and deletes that person’s home folder.

Automating these otherwise time-consuming but necessary tasks saves a tremendous amount of time for admins and also significantly reduces the risk of human errors.
