Hello Enrico,

Have a look at the following tutorial: https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_Active ... ration.htm. On step 3 of the tutorial, enter the following into the Property value field: %lastname%, %firstname% (%sAMAccountName%)

Also, you can specify the template to be automatically applied for the properties during user creation. For details, see https://www.adaxes.com/tutorials_Simpli ... llName.htm.
