Log in as another user

In this article, you can learn who to log in as another user. This can be very useful when you need to help a user who doesn't have the same rights as you according to the role, or you need to test whether you have set up user permissions and views correctly in relation to what an employee and manager should be able to see or edit in.

 

1. Go to "Settings" in the main menu, and click on "Account"

2. Click on "Users"

Now you are logged in as the chosen user, and can see what he or she can do in the system. This can be very useful when you need to help a user who doesn't have the same rights as you according to the role, or you need to test whether you have set up user permissions and views correctly in relation to what an employee and manager should be able to see or edit in.

Note: When you have logged in as another user, and are done with testing/helping the person, you must log out as that person, and log in as yourself again.
Tip: It can be a good idea to log in to two different browsers. This allows you to edit the settings as an administrator in one browser, and be logged in as the user in the other.
