If you need to import or maintain a list of users from Active Directory in a SharePoint list, you can use Data Sync to do so.
The video below covers adding Active Directory users to a new SharePoint List.
Alternatively, if you want to create a new SharePoint list start by adding the columns you want to be included to the Schema Map and then go to
Create SharePoint List.
Connect to your SharePoint site and type in a name for your list.
Configure the schema map to include any columns you need and match the source columns to their corresponding target column in SharePoint. Make sure to select a key column to identify each record.
Your schema map might look similar to this:
Once you have configured your schema map, click
Compare A > B in the toolbar. This will open the compare results where you can preview the changes to be made.
You can preview additions by clicking on the green plus icon, updates by clicking on the blue diamond, and deletes by clicking on the red minus.
Deletes are disabled by default to prevent accidental deletions but will still appear in the results if their are any. To enable delete set
True on your target.
Start to begin the sync. Your Active Directory Users have now been added to your SharePoint List.
