I'm in the middle of configuring UPS and would appreciate some advise on the order of how the end user interacts with their profile and how updating of user profile and AD should work.
- Users start life from AD, only a handful of fields get added.
- UPS updates SharePoint profile datatabase.
every user needs an image, users are allowed to edit certain aspects of their profile (manager). Should this be user profile in SharePoint?
SharePoint exports to AD new information ? (i.e.image)
- Ideally, I would want outlook to pick up the images from somewhere.
Is the above order correct, Im not keen on updating AD as in step 4. Is this needed?
