New users and their folders

I just created some new users (User accounts for my kids) in ADUC.  When do their user folders (ServerFolders\Users\NewUser) get created?  When they log in the first time?  Should users be added in ADUC, or should it be through the Dashboard?

I'm familiar with setting up shares and permissions, but I'm used to Server 200 and 2003,  I'll remove them ADUC and create them in the Dashboard.

With any of the Home Server varieties, including Essentials, I suggest using the DashBoard, as jmwills and diehard stated. Using the DashBoard takes care of some stuff automatically, so it's easier and you don't forget anything.

In fact, unless you create them in the dashboard.... they won't have permissions on the shared folders by default. Nor access to other feature, such as the website.

That's because well... the dashboard takes care of all that, including adding it to "WSE" groups, as well.
