In Odoo 16, it is possible for admins to login as any user with the feature of selecting a user and returning back to the admin account. This feature is particularly useful for troubleshooting and testing purposes, and it can only be performed by admins who have the necessary permissions.

Features of the Odoo 16 Login As Any User:

1. User Selection and Access Group Info.

2. Once logged in, users can access their assigned modules, perform tasks and collaborate with other users based on their role and permissions.

User Selection and Access Group Info. 

Admin can select the user and, after selecting the user, click on switch user to the selected user. Selected users' group access can be seen there in the table, and admins can switch to that specific user even if he/she is a portal user and also admin can switch to that user.

If a user encounters a problem or error within the system, a system administrator or a user with elevated permissions can use the "Login as Any User" feature to log in as the affected user and troubleshoot the issue. This can help to quickly identify and resolve the problem, rather than having to rely on the affected user to describe the issue and provide screenshots or other information.

It is important to note that this feature should only be used by authorized users and with proper oversight and control measures in place to ensure that it is not misused or abused. Unrestricted access to other user accounts can lead to unauthorized data access, privacy violations, or other security breaches. Therefore, organizations should implement appropriate access controls and policies to manage the use of this feature.
