Apple's Workgroup Manager (used to add, edit and delete user accounts from Open Directory), does not provide much information about the users for viewing by Address Book (e.g. even the users email address is not entered by Workgroup Manager). While it is possible to manually (and tediously) add this information using the Inspector Tab in Workgroup Manager, I have written OverDose to try and make this easier (including if possible auto-filling fields). [The above is now less true with Workgroup Manager in 10.4 Server but OverDose is still useful in that it can make bulk changes. Read the included manual for full details.]
What's new in version 1.1
It has been brought to my attention that some organisations have user names in the format "Smith,John" rather than "John Smith". This would cause unintented and incorrect results in OverDose. This version now adds a set of options to allow you to either clean up such results or to convert your user name or both. See the included 1.1 manual addendum for more information.
