    Additional Important Information

      • You cannot grant login access if you’re logged in as another individual through their login access. For example, a System Administrator cannot login as their end user and Grant Login Access to Salesforce Support. Similarly, if the Admin has the feature “Organization Admins can Login as Any User” privilege, Salesforce Support cannot login as a System Admin and then login as any User in their Organization. If Support needs access to both the end user and the Admin’s account, both the Admin and end User will need to grant access separately.


      • You have the option to either go back in multiple times and grant login access or you can grant a month as an option. It is whatever you are most comfortable with providing. Also once your case has been closed you are encouraged to go back in and set the access back to “No Access”.


    • You can’t grant access to certain support organizations if your administrator has set up restrictions or a packaged application’s license prevents it.
