Log In as Another User

Admins on Enterprise accounts can log in as other users.

⏱ 2 min read


Admins can log in as a different user to see what content someone else could see/access, to help set up Wrike, or to troubleshoot.

When you (an admin) log in as another user, you

  • See everything as the user you are logged in as and have access to all the data they have access to.
  • Have all the same functionality and rights as the user you are logged in as. Any changes you make while logged in are tracked as having been made by the user you are logged in as.

Please note, if you run an Audit Report on logins, you will see when an admin has logged in as another user (two user IDs appear for the login event where an admin logs in as someone else). 

Important Information

  • You can’t log in as: 1) the account owner 2) a deleted user 3) a user who is part of multiple Wrike accounts.
  • Once you log in as another user, you remain logged in as them until you log out.
  • Only one admin can log in as a specific user at a time.
