I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time
LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
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.
The engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.
You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.
Please! Have to use an account in Chrome and another in Edge and can't use the desktop app! Also can't share screen as the web apps doesn't support it

NO NO NO NO NO.
Not one of us has asked (or wants) a personal account alongside a work/school account.
We need the ability to use multiple school/work accounts.

hi, one solution is to get connected on the web application with one account, and on the local client with the other

Considering this was raised back in 2017 and the latest update is Nov 5 2020 and Microsoft still do not have the ability to switch accounts within Teams is appalling. The assumption that Microsoft do not want you to work with multiple accounts is clearly them not understanding their user base. This should have been a feature from the start. Until it is fixed my clients are using Zoom. Given that there are 2555 comments before me and over 30K votes on this issue since the day it was posted, it clearly is an issue that should be given the highest priority. I note this was only added to the roadmap in March 2020. Over 3 years after the original request for a basic feature.
I need 2 WORK accounts at the same time ! Not 1 work & 1personal...
Now Teams is being used everywhere, this NEEDS to be higher priority
In the meantime I find if I switch accounts, click on the tabs and go back it sorts itself out after several attempts. Not ideal but better that a constant notification!
Please make this a higher priority. This is such an incredible application but left nearly unusable because of this major shortcoming.

WIth your DUA'$ now over 100 million, I suspect this is a prioritization problem, not a resource problem. Please escalate this to critical as without it, Teams is a toy not a tool.
I need 2 WORK accounts, not 1 work/1personal
I agree, this is a major problem as a consultant with multiple clients.
Who even uses Teams for personal things???
Daniel Mayer commented
Must have feature !!!!
We NEED support multiple WORK accounts.
This is sad that there isn't already support for this.
You must support multiple WORK accounts. Does this really need to be said???

I agree, it is very important to improve Teams for multiple institutional accounts. I work with professors, students and researchers from différents universities and yet, Teams can't meet our needs.
I agree, I teach in 2 different establishments with 2 completely different 365 share systems, I have to switch from one to another between lessons, and they need different profile pictures

We need multiple work accounts (Different O365 Tenants) be able to add in 1 MS Teams Client then easily switch between accounts with MFA authentication.

We need multiple work accounts, not personal ones!
