In this video we look at using Dynamic Groups and some tips around optimal use.

Dynamic groups are groups in Active Directory that are automatically populated with members based on criteria that an administrator sets. For example, administrators can create a dynamic group based on a certain organizational unit, job title, or geographical location. Dynamic groups are beneficial because they allow administrators to quickly and easily manage access to resources. Additionally, by using dynamic groups, administrators can ensure that users always have the most up-to-date access rights, as the group membership is updated automatically based on the criteria.
