I'm a manager. When I want to experience the site from a different role, in some cases I have to open a new window and log in using a second user profile. This is in contrast to many cloud-based platforms that allow me to toggle back and forth. Examples: SquareSpace, WordPress. Canvas. Blackboard.
I've very sorry that I never got back to you on this in the forums. I have added this to our enhancements and want to make sure I understand what you are requesting.
As a site manager, you would like to have some sort of "See ... view" option when you are viewing the front end of the site. You would like there to be two options within that: "See Faculty View" and "See Student" view. Once you select one of those, you'd like to be able to select (or possibly type in) the name of the faculty member or student.
I don't know if we can make the system allow a certain view without logging you out of your site manager view, but I can look into having something on the front end for site managers so that you don't have to return to the manager panel to assume someone else's account.
My apologies again for not responding sooner.
So as I think about it, I know there is no a single view that all users see. The pages are customized for each user. Could I have a button <<see faculty view>> that brings up a search or drop down box so I can easily assume that user? I want to see what they see.
Same with <<see student view>> and so on.
I would like 4 toggles.
Can you let me know what roles you're having to use a second user profile for? Or, more specifically, what tasks do you need to perform that are requiring you to log in as someone else? I know there are several, but I would like to know your specific use case so I can take it to my team. Thanks!
