Skype For Business 2016 - Logging user off and then logging back in as admin

We just started using Skype For Business in house. One of the features we've used is the desktop sharing, etc. I can connect to users without issue, share back and forth screens as needed. What we can NOT seem to do at this point is allow user 1, to take control of user 2's machine, log them off, and then have user 1 log back in as an admin.

Hope that makes sense. I want the ability to have full control of the desktop, I want to be able to connect to them, log them out, log myself in as an admin and make system changes as needed. Does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks in advance.

It is logical that you cannot perform the above as you cannot do concurrent logon for the same user at two locations.

You need other remote assistance tool like Teamviewer to do the above task.
