    We would like to propose an idea to have the option to only take in contact account creations from the LDAP import, without the updates once the contact has been synced. Currently there is no functionality to do this. When you use the LDAP import, it will create accounts based on the search criteria, but it also updates the contact record after the account creation to whatever is in LDAP. We would like an option to remove that update portion of it, since our users may want a different email address/phone number in their contact record that differs from what is in LDAP.
