Is it possible to have staff login using email? Would that be done via an extension and are there any implications switching the login to email?
You would need to update the login controller logic to enable this, which would mean amending core code and keeping it in sync across updates.
Alternatively you could make an extension that provides a new login url for staff that does accept email/password and then redirect to the dashboard afterwards.
