Under Consideration
I believe that when using the impersonate user function the last login data should not be updated

We recently discussed this with development and found this is working as intended. The impersonation of accounts, or webmail/protocol login will update this value and can be correlated to a successful authentication (or impersonation) in the Administrative logs.

Agree 100%.
Should not update unless the user logs in.

I think the two values should be distinguished

Date and modality of the last user login and date and modality of the last administrative access

Agree that last login should NOT update on impersonation.

I agree too, it should NOT update on impersonation.

I agree 100% that impersonating should no update the last login time. This would affect the inactive users report and could lead to abandoned accounts not getting properly purged.

There are indeed good reasons not to update the last login time when using impersonation as it's not really the end user login into his account.
On another side for transparency for the customer it would be useful, but as long as this is visible for the customer. AFAIK the customer has no access to last logins for his own account...

Perhaps two buttons? Ghost Impersonate / User Impersonate

We use that report twice a year to remove unused accounts, but if they have email in their inbox, we check to see if they're recent and real, or just all spam.
