How can I logon as a differnt user in SharePoint 2013 for OF365 using the Admin credentials

I have a client that is never available and need to access SharePoint as him in order to give everyone permissions to his News Feed section, i.e. so they can see everything in his news feed including his documents.

Is there a way I can log in as Admin and then sign in as a different user, but take note this is Office 365

Hi Jason, if I'm not mistaken, as admin you have top level permissions and can give any downstream permissions, so as admin you should be able to give permissions as needed. Are you unable to or getting an error?

When you are on the site as admin, what happens when you do the following

1. click gear, then click site permissions
2. On mine there is a link that says "Some content on this site has different permissions from what you see here.  Show these items."
3. Click on "show these items"
4. The feed comes up and I click on "view exceptions", then "manage permissions"

from there it allows me to add, delete, etc user permissions.

Thanks ChilT I have tried this now and am waiting for feedback from the client, unless is there a way I can sign in as the client without knowing their credentials. As then I would be able to see if he/she has access to the other users feeds/documents

Will keep you posted
