I have supervisors that are asking for permission to login as terminated users to the termed users Teams account so that they can review the previous employees chat history.  Instead of this, I can use e-discovery tools, but that puts a burden on IT and the e-discovery results are nearly impossible to read.  In Exchange we can give a manager delegated Full Access to a terminated users mailbox.  I wish there were a similar function for Teams where a manager could login "As" the terminated user so that they would have Read Only rights to review the chat history for the terminated users.

Why not resetting their password and login with their user account?
