Since Quickbase applied their March update and added an option to test apps as a User, the entire "test this app as" option has disappeared for non admin roles.
"Test as another role or user" is not hidden for these roles. Is there another setting to configure? I read through the release notes and test role setting articles but don't see anything mentioned about this issue.

That defeats the purpose of the "Test as another role or user" checkbox.

Yep, that's exactly what I told them. And the support person agreed with me but he said it's the only option for right now.

I too have the same problem. We have key people here that both train and support applications where this ability to change roles is a real advantage.

Our data is driven by roles, home pages and reports within each. Each role sees what they need to see and be responsible for. They just took away a major function for these key people. These key people need their own roles for their jobs as well so that records, reports, and work can flow to them in their job functions. I don't want to make everyone an administrator but I want certain people to have the ability to help train and manage others using the ability to put themselves in another role.

This is going to cause major issues for us.
