Sharing the love 💖 ... 

This is the first of many FREE apps provided by GT Services.

Troubleshooting member's account is what we do on a daily basis. Oftentimes, you Sign in as member to see what they are seeing. 

To do this, you normally log in to your Admin Control Panel and run a search for the member. Open their account and click Account Actions > Sign In as

That's a lot of steps.

What's worse is that sometimes the search feature in Admin Control Panel is not successful (eg. special characters in username).

All of this takes up a lot of time. Time is money. 

I'm a strong believer that Admins should be focused on building relationships and/or new content. 

Because of this we created an easier way for Admins to "LogIn as XYZ User".

It's a simple link provided to Admins with the proper permissions so they can Sign In As XYZ User via a member's Profile page. 

Not available anywhere else - just in Profiles.

No settings. Just install.

More FREE apps coming soon...

(The more LIKES we get the more free apps we will make available.)

PM for now

You should make it as a plugin not as application. It's an exaggeration and it's like hunting a mouse with a cannon. 😉

Response from the author:

There really is no difference in performance. But the advantages of applications like the schema stuff, extensions, including own classes, using git repository on local installs, etc ... is HUGE.

Because of the advantages/opportunities applications provide us, we believe this is the best route for us and our customers.

Our mantra has always been "Start Small > Go BIG Over Time".

If you have lots of trolls and people who try to poach your members wipe we do, then this can be extremely useful – but used very sparingly.

However, so far there is no way that I can see to change the permissions. I think that an app as sensitive as this needs to have controllable permissions.

Maybe I've missed it and it can be done but it's not obvious to me.

Response from the author:

Appreciate the review BankFodder,

The goal with this is to make make it as simple as possible - No settings or permissions to change.

This is set for ADMINS to use only.

Thanks a lot for this, will sure come in handy when the time comes. However I got a question - will the member that was logged in into will notice that somebody was using his account. I mean like unread content disappearing or last visit date on profile card?

Response from the author:

It's no different from the IPS AdminCP Members > Sign In As User feature
