Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Capabilities/moodle/role:switchroles.
- This allows a user to switch temporarily to another role so that they can see what the course would look like to someone with that role.
- The roles available in the "Switch role to..." drop-down menu are the same as the roles that a user is allowed to assign to other users.
- A user can only switch to roles he/she can assign. That means he/she needs moodle/role:assign at the course context as well the correct settings in the "Allow role assignments" setting.
- WARNING! This facility does not always give you a true picture of what the course would look like to someone with that role. It is recommended you have a "test" user with the appropriate role who can be used to give a more accurate view.
