During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Only users with domain proxy permissions can proxy as another user.

To sign in as proxy for another user:

  1. Open the User Menu.
  2. Click Proxy.
  1. Enter:
    • The proxy username or ID when signing in for a user in the same domain.
    • The proxy domain prefix, a forward slash, and the proxy username or ID when signing in for a user in a different domain (e.g., "DemoDomain/StudentName").
  2. Click OK.

When you are signed in as someone's proxy, the User Menu indicates it and provides that user's ID. To turn off the proxy, click Unproxy in the User Menu.

New UI

Only users with domain proxy permissions can proxy as another user.

To sign in as proxy for another user:

  1. Open the User Menu.
