User Group

The FIM Team User Group is an online forum that is open to all people working with Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager. Once a month we hold a one-hour web conference to discuss FIM-related topics or view presentations by people doing great work with FIM around the world.

How does it work?

The meetings are held on Lync Online. An invitation with the link will be sent by email a few days before the meeting. It is recommended that you check your connectivity and sound equipment well in advance of the meeting.

How do I join?

Please send an email to to be added to the mailing list. Your email address will only be used to contact you about the FIM Team User Group meetings. It will not be used for marketing or passed on to any other parties.
