Hello, I have about 1,000 macs with about 2,000 users on my network that logon with usernames and passwords. I was wondering how manage their dock so that I can adjust to what they need through out the year. Mainly I am looking to add Word and Pages to the dock so that they know to just click on them.

Thanks!

Depends if you are using a Windows Server, or an OS X Server.

If OS X, then you can set lots of default options for users/groups in Workgroup Manger (Lion and prior) and Profile Manager (Lion and greater).

Depends on what version you are using. If 10.7> you can use profile manager. If less, you can use workgroup manager. All require OD authentication though.
