The tenfold Home Folder Lifecycle Plugin is used to manage user directory (home folder) life-cycles.

Required license


The tenfold Home Folder Lifecycle Plugin is used for managing the life-cycles of user directories (home folders). It automates routine tasks, like creating new home folders during the user account creation process.
When a staff member switches to a new office location, for example, the plugin automatically transfers the person’s home folder to the file server at the new location; and, if the person decides to leave the company, the folder is automatically archived and later deleted (if necessary).
This saves the administrator from having to manually conduct annoying (but necessary) tasks each time a new person enters or leaves the company. It also greatly reduces the potential for errors.
