Default Setting Activation Passwords in bulk - options...

Please Login to Remove!


I'm about to be sending out about 80 new BB devices and would like to avoid having to set the activation passwords manually. Been sifting through the documentation this morning but this is where I'm at... The options I know - with questions - are:

1. Allow users to set their own password using the /webdesktop/login link.
- This is a good option for us, but the issue to overcome is adding Active Directory authentication in bulk to these (if not all) users in the first place. Can this be done?

2. Using an import file under Manage Multiple Users to set an activation password on the server.
- Don't know if this is actually possible. I formatted a csv file with what I thought would be the right options:

User ID, Email Address, Activation Password Operation, Activation Password, Activation Password Expiry

But still get Invalid File Format when trying to import it. Is this because something is missing, or because its not possible to do this in the first place?

Any help much appreciated!
