There are a lot of groups in my organization's NAB (Names and Address Book). How can I find out which groups are empty?


aclEZ contains a built-in tool called the NAB Group Navigator that lets you quickly find empty groups, and clean them out. Here's how to find them.

Before you begin:

This process assumes that you have already loaded a server in aclEZ's main grid. See this simple tutorial to learn how to load a server in aclEZ.

Step 5 Click 'Load'.
