Hi Boone --

In working on the JustPublics@365 POOC website, Ray installed the User Switching plugin, which seems to be helpful for troubleshooting purposes in that it allows admins to switch to another user's login and to see the site from their viewpoint. Ray can perhaps say more.

I wonder whether we should consider this, as it might be helpful when troubleshooting tickets like the group invitation issue we're dealing with now.

Of course, don't add this if it won't be helpful to you --

I've tried this plugin in the past, and have had issues with it. Going to reject this ticket for now, but I may consider it in the future.

Okay. Can you update me on the issues, either here or via email? I'm concerned because we are using it on the POOC site and would like to know about any potential complications or vulnerabilities. Thanks.

I just don't remember liking it very much. Nothing specific.
