    4. A confirmation dialog popup will appear asking you to confirm the action and to inform you about possible privacy issues of performing the action. Click the "Yes, I Accept Responsibility" button in the confirmation dialog. If sending email is enabled, you will also be required to enter a reason and the user will be notified via email that their account is being viewed.

    5. A success dialog popup will be displayed indicating you are viewing as that user. A red bar at the bottom is also displayed on every page you visit to remind you that you are acting on behalf of the user and to allow you to switch back to your original account using the Exit View As button. It will also show the updated username displayed at the upper right corner of each page.

    6. An email will be sent to the user (if Send Email Notification option is enabled) containing the entered reason. The email will be sent with high priority without waiting for the existing email queue to be processed first. It is using the same priority used when sending password reset emails.

      Unfortunately, this kind of mod requires custom PHP code which is not allowed in vBCloud. I wish they would lift this restriction at some point in the future in vB6.

          This sounds great to be honest, will definitely shorten the amount of time used to help with technical related issues that users are experiencing. Personally when a user has a technical issue I have to manually give my test user the same permissions and log into it until I fix the issue with a bit of trial and error..
          Thanks for this, very useful.

                  I have Vbulletin 6 self hosted. Is there any possibility this works or will be made to work with 6?

                    Nacman, this mod works in vB6. I just haven't had a chance to update the first post for each mod to add vB6 compatibility but I have consolidated a list of vB6-compatible mods at:

                    Will vB5 plugins work with vB6? That's one of the most asked questions when vB6 was released. Here in vBMods.rocks, the answer is mostly yes. Most of the vB5 mods here in vBMods.rocks should work with vB6 but it's not a guarantee at this point due to obviously unforeseen frontend and backend changes introduced in vB6. We will

                      Thank you. That's what I needed. I am curious, since I am really building out the forum, 35 signups so far, I would prefer to NOT send emails out initially what I am configuring usergroup options and such. Of course, I could just log out but this mod makes it so much easier it seems. Is there a way to not notify users? Or do I just turn of the email system?

                        Nevermind, I see that as an option in the bottom of the MOD configuration.

                            Hi Glenn, I can only use this mod IF I opt to send an email?

                            Any ideas?

                            Cheers,

                              No. It's an option in AdminCP > Settings > Options > [vBMods.rocks] Admin View As User Settings​ once the MOD has been installed.
