The instant login ability is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal as an admin you can use it for actions such as:


  • Restoring data that appears in a managed user's trash
  • Changing the owner of one of your managed user's folders
  • Checking the settings of a user e.g. they say they are not getting email notifications


Note: Keep in mind that all actions you make while logged in as a managed user will be logged as having been done by you in administrative reports.
