I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time
LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
Original user posted:
I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.
Another user says:
We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but a case where new O365 credentials have been created in another tenant for us. The app today only allows a single signed-in account at a time and that’s a blocker.
SHARED CHANNELS ACROSS TEAMS
From a merged idea:
Please add support for shared channels which could be used in multiple teams. Suppose there is one company-wide team with multiple channels. It would be great if all teams within the company could include these channels or at least one of them in their own team. In that way you don’t have to recreate the channel for every team again.
We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.
Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.

What is the status of this? Really need this capability ASAP.

What we need is for all tenants a user has access to to be consolidated into one screen view. No more need to switch.
work faster please. having to switch logins is a pain. maybe have it pop out into a separate pane now that pop-out is being GA soon?
Multiple Teams accounts- I am able to set up two accounts on my iPhone and relatively easy to switch accounts. Still on laptop I do not see this feature. Is it still in development?
Need an update on this feature. Something Microsoft may not realize is the more you adopt Teams, the larger this issue becomes. If you use Teams Calling and Audio Conferencing, you lose the ability to receive phone calls while in a different directory/tenant. Calls and meetings also abruptly drop if you are cleaning up email during a call and click a missed Teams message that happens to be in a separate tenant to switch over. No "are you sure" message or anything. Teams just logs you out, drops your call/meeting, and switches over.

I work with many customers at once, and they want to collaborate with me. I refuse to use Teams with them because I will miss important comms from customer C if I'm in Customer A. The way Teams works between organisations is fundamentally broken.
Being able to switch seamlessly between accounts would really boost the usability. IHO Microsoft should put this request in the context of all office (web) applications.
Account switching really is a pain and the result between various interfaces tends to become a (keyboard unfriendly) frustration. I was kinda surprised the office cloud environment isn't well behaved in this respect. Instead having multiple users results in a counter intuitive environment you expect in the old monolithic world not in the cloud.
Any updates on this? Many of our users sign in to some of our external client Teams tenancys. Its extremely frustrating that there is no easy way to be logged into multiple channels at the same time.

the hack is to have multiple profiles with chrome so far or similar on firefox/etc
and run on the web

Same here! Multiple IDs for own consulting as well as for few clients! Can’t operate without multi tenant account else the utility of this product is severely compromised
Need this feature urgently
I guess they meant "Fall Next Year" lol

COME ON MICROSOFT!!!!!!! You're a global leader in IT - why oh why has no-one done this ALREADY?????? It beggars belief you didn't think this was needed from the outset. Dear oh dear! SORT IT NOW. And advertise that you've done it in an easy-to-find way. Get a grip and make your all your products world class. This is an example of a sub-optimal product. Shoddy.
Logged this with support today and pointed directly to this. We have fast tenant switching (not very fast) and we get no notifications from the other tenant so have no way to know when messages are received. - Paul

Any update on this? Fall is almost over....
I have switched to Google collaboration tools because of this problem

+1 Impossible to work without this as a consultant.
This would be a game-changer, and very valuable to anyone trying to support more than one company/customer in Office365.
Yes. need this feature - messages should be seamless regardless if internal or external (similar to skype). (Also need ability to import planner templates. Then Teams would work for me.)
+1 for staying logged in to all accounts so that if you get a notification you know to switch.
