SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We currently provide an email signature creator that employees can either use or not. The form asks users to enter information that we have in Active Directory. So, I was wondering if somebody can tell me how to create a page that prepopulates the info from AD into the form. Or, what I need to google for that might explain what it takes to implement this.

Thanks!

Yeah, I am extremely new to SharePoint.

Once you have synchronized the AD content to SharePoint you can easily create signature templates in SharePoint based on the info on the individuals User Profile. Create a new page and code it to use the current users User Profile information formated according to the corporate standard.

I believe you're looking at DirectorySearcher that you can use to get user profile from AD as well as user profile properties.

Your question asks how to add a page like Person.aspx. If you wanted the signature template form to be a tab within the MySites/User Profile, then I have a blog post that explains how to add a tab to the standard navigation as well as a base Application Page that can be used to host the content.
