Feature request #3560
Implement gui profiles
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
Allow multiple user profiles, covering at least gui state and selection of loaded plugins.
Possible solution: multiple QSettings paths, with a gui to manage them and restart the application with selected one. Do anybody has another ideas?
See #1442 and r13951 also.

Hello, bug triage...
as said before, QGIS stores its configuration into ~/.qgis2, so by default, each user of the computer has got an independent profile. If you would like to have more than one profile for a user, it is possible to use the
--configpath option for QGIS binary. With such an option, you can store another profile to another directory. You can create a shortcut or an alias (QGIS-profile1, QGIS-profile2) with configpath option to implement multiple profiles for a user (or a group of users).
I am closing this bug as we've got a technical solution to deal with multiple profiles. Feel free to reopen it with more details about what you'd like to have for users profiles management options.
