When I highlight multiple users in ADUC and go to profile tab and add
\\servername\usersharedfoldername\%username% it only creates the first AD
account home folder. What am I doing wrong?

You can use a tool called ADMODIFY (free download from Microsoft) to do this on multiple accounts, or simply highlight multiple users in ADUC, and select the profile tab. Just make sure the Users folder allows FC minimally for Authenticated Users, and specify the home folder under the Profile tab of the user accounts as \\servername\usersharedfoldername\%username% and it will automatically create them giving them FC. You can modify the permissions afterwards, if need by.
