is it also possible to import groups from LDAP-Directory or can I only import users?

Thanks for a short answer an best regards

Tim Becker


Only recipients can be imported from LDAP, not the groups. The groups can be created in NPrinting manually.

So let me understand this one - from active directory (LDAP) we can only import full name and Email?

What about department field for example?
