How do I switch to another user's account to impersonate a user?

Updated Oct 29, 2021

As an admin, you can impersonate any active user in your account. You cannot impersonate users whose accounts are archived. When you impersonate a user, you switch to their account. Videri displays as if that user is logged in, and their login history updates to display a log in. To return to your account, you may need to sign out of Videri and re-log-in to your Videri account. If the user is also a Videri admin, you may be able to return to the user page and select to impersonate your own account.
