Please note

  • This functionality is only available to users. If you are using GoReact in an LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.), then you will need to use the LMS masking functionality instead (i.e. Act as User, Preview User, etc.).

  • In some cases, you may see a "Masking is unavailable for this user" message.


    This typically means that the user belongs to an organization you are not affiliated with, or they have a role greater than or equal yours (i.e. Instructor to Instructor, or Instructor to Admin) and so the ability to mask is disabled

Please Note

With our new GoReact dashboard, there is some new terminology. Note that Folder/Course, Activity/Assignment, Owner/Instructor, and Participant/Presenter are now interchangeable terms.

Masking as a user

Masking as a user allows you to view your folder as a specific participant. Please follow these steps to mask as a user:

  1. Click the ellipses ⋮ to the right of your folder name.
  2. Select "Manage Users."
  3. Find the user you want to mask as.
  4. Click the ellipses ⋮ to the right of the participant's name.
  5. Select Mask User.


Note, to go back to normal view, click the participant's name in red at the top right and select "Exit Mask View". This will return you to your normal dashboard and you should see your name at the top right again.
