The Login As local plugin allows admin to add a list of loginas action links to the settings block by setting a comma delimited list of user ids.

The plugin offers a convenient way to switch to a designated user with particular roles for testing site settings or troubleshooting. It can also be used for switching between personae where site managers wear more than one hat.

    We installed it on 2.2.4+ (build 20120719) okay but the link is nowhere to be found sad

    This looks like a great time saver! Is there an expected time frame for when it will be 2.5 compatible?

    Does this plugin have anything to do with this role capability?

    Thanks for this great little plug-in, Itamar! Works well overall it but it seems to ignore the Force Group Mode. In other words, a teacher in Group A can log in as students in Group B even thought the course is set to keep these groups/users separate. Any ideas on how work around this?

    Hi Itamar. Nice plugin. I have two questions:
    1. Could it be possible to add to the «Course users» feature an option to search by role (ex.: within the students only)?
    2. Did it could be possible also to add a filter that let search within the users from a specific group or cohort within a course?

    If so, that features is it hard to develop?

    Thanks. Both possible and shouldn't be too difficult. As usual, it's mainly a matter of time and funding. smile
