Simplified Group Policy management and administration.

Automate critical Group Policy management tasks and eliminate manual processes.



Automate critical Group Policy management tasks with GPOADmin to reduce costs and eliminate time-consuming manual processes. Quickly and effectively administer changes to Group Policy objects (GPOs) because GPOADmin extends the Microsoft Group Policy Management Console. Verify and compare GPO versions over time to confirm the consistency of various GPO settings.

Benefit from these key features with GPOADmin:

Version comparisons
Improve GPO auditing and verify setting consistency quickly and easily with advanced, side-by-side GPO version comparisons at various intervals.

Approval-based workflow
Prior to deployment, ensure that changes adhere to change management best practices.

Delete version history
Delete history of multiple versions to help you manage and reduce the size of backup store.

Workflow commenting
Track requests, reviews and approvals with comments and email notifications at any stage in the process. Workflow requests for GPO modifictions can be approved or rejected by email without opening the GPOADmin console.

Custom email templates
Customize email notifications with specific text and/or attachments by role (e.g., help desk).

Implement or schedule approved changes.
