You can switch to a sub account if you are an account admin in the top-level account. Switching to a sub account, or teleporting, allows you to manage courses, users, and settings for the sub account.


  • You are not masquerading as another user when switching to a sub account. All actions and content creation or modification performed in the sub account will be logged as being completed by you.
  • Switching to a sub account is a function that is not currently supported on mobile devices.
  • This feature is not available in Bridge for Teams accounts.
