Is it possible to map Active Directory OUs as User's department field when configuring Active Directory Synchronization?

Question:

Is it possible to map Active Directory OUs as User's department field when configuring Active Directory Synchronization?

Answer:

With Equitrac Office/Express 5.x it is now possible to set AD field mappings separately for each OU. Additionally, one can insert quoted text rather than an AD field. The field map value will be the quoted text. Therefore one can set AD field mappings specific to each OU and then set the department field map to be a quoted value matching the OU name. For example, set the department field mapping for the Accounting OU to "Accounting". Equitrac AD synch will then create the accounting department (if it does not already exist) in lowercase and assign all users in that OU to the accounting department.
