Update Staff Directory from Active Directory
Create a tool that allows us to automatically update the Staff Directory from Active Directory.

If you can't do Active Directory syncing - please at least provide an automated CSV option - with SFTP upload or something. The really frustrating part is - we have LDAP linking already and it's just a matter of you connecting up the data to the directory piece.
Can you allow the Staff Directory App to work with Clever, which syncs from our (SIS) student information system?

I concur. Would like this automated.

This has been a suggested feature for over a year and we still have yet to see Blackboard make any comment.

This HAS to be done. It's crazy this isn't offered. Every district in the world has a staff directory!

This is a must. I should be able to specify the ldap group to read, too. The current "static" directory is not useful in a high-turn over environment. Also, the ldap group should be queried at page request time. I built similar on my old Sharepoint 2007 site and it was a blessing.
