Have you ever wondered how to make proper use of those multi-valued properties found, for example, on a user's identification page in NetWare Administrator?

Take the 'Location' property for instance: If you fill in several locations for an existing user, you won't be able to re-use these location entries for another user account. Instead, you need to apply the location property again and again. Wouldn't it be much better, if after you create a new user account you simply choose from a given set of locations the correct one, and that's all?

In fact, this is the purpose of a multi-valued field in NetWare Administrator. To make use of this feature, you need to enter all values, in this case the locations, in a user template. Once you create a new user account based on that template, the new account inherits the values you've already entered. All you need to do now, is to choose the corresponding value for the new account.
