Sometimes users may want to access their own calendar or use Slype for Business under their own account rather than the Room Account.   Quicklaunch allows a user to access their own accounts through "Change User".  Change user supports both traditional userid/password as well as Microsoft Modern Authentication, optionally with MFA.


This FAQ describes using Change User with basic authentication.  To see how to setup and use Change User with Modern Authentication (MFA) see:  Change User with Modern Authentication (MFA)
