Similar to Powershell's "whatif"?

I'd like to enable this scheduled task -

But would like to confirm who will actually be affected before enabling this.

Is there at least a way to add an action that outputs the name (or UPN) of all affected objects in the console log? I could run that before adding the 'modify' actions back.

Nevermind. Figured out a good enough solution. Replaced the 'modify' actions with run powershell script which contains just the following --

$Context.LogMessage("%userPrincipalName%", "Information")

Activity log then contains the list of affected users.

seting up a scheduled task to move users to thier correct OU. For some we can do this based on employee type and direct to a specific OU. For most of our users we will have to script this to move to the manager's OU.
