The Impersonate Feature

Overview

Reserved for TOP ADMIN’s – this feature allows you to actually sign in as another user; or “impersonate” their account, giving you quick and easy access to assist their specific needs.

Why would you Impersonate someone? Well, for many reasons – but let’s say for instance, as an admin you receive calls about users not having access to something, yet all of your settings look correct – jumping in to “see what they see” can help you resolve many issues.

Once you Impersonate a user, you will emulate actually being “Signed In” as them. You will see the branding and features as they would, you can navigate, take training, and do everything as if you are this user – and with that, please tread lightly!

While you are in this mode, you will see the “Identity Badge” (the floating action button) located at the bottom left corner of the screen. By clicking that button, you can learn more about the user and System, as well as return to your previous Top Admin user account.
