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.

Any further update on release other then 'fall'? Looking forward to this!

this is long overdue, I work for 2 different companies and each uses their own teams tenant. There is no way to login with 2 accounts and I ended up having to install VMware workstation and run teams inside logged to another server. What a messy work around!
The current multi tenant support is a very disappointing user experience. If I am logged into my company tenant then I miss notifications all the time in my other tenants as they are not displayed prominently. Maybe the Activity feed can display activity from all tenants? It needs to be much more integrated between tenants to be usable
I'm in agreeance with all the comments below. This feature is a must. It gets frustrating to have a few different browsers open and the app just so I don't miss messages. It's been 2-3 years now since this was raised, hopefully we can really get this soon!!

I have to agree with it working as a separate instance. Like with Onedrive. Multiple accounts are all separate, each running its own instance of Onedrive. We need this for teams not just a quick switch option. Please get this done Microsoft.

This feature is what is keeping our organization from adopting Teams. We need to be able to connect both commercial tenants and GCC High tenants.

Account switching is not really a solution to this it should be either one instance of the process running for each tenant or, better, all my accounts in one process with just different tabs. For anyone working as a consultant this is likely to be a major issue.
The lack of this feature makes teams a major pain. I have access to 3 different tenants and spend all day switching between them. This feature is so import I believe MS should stop work on all other feature to get this working. The competition has had this for a long time.

would be great to have this

Alex, any update on this feature?

I'm a consultant and now I have 3 different Teams accounts in 3 different tenants. A lot of organizations are switching to Teams. I need this feature as I often have to hop between clients and need to be connected to all of them at the same time.

This is already an option via the MS Teams mobile app (Android). Love it! Can't wait for it to come to the full operating system.

Any ETA for this?

Fast tenant switching is not really helpful for the business case at all. I can switch by log-out & log-in and. by the new feature. However, I have to do it again and again and again and again and again during each day. It is not a real time messenger for all us us anymore that are working with more than one account...
So, you should skip this tenant switching and spend you time working on a real solution ;)

Fast tenant switching is a short term workaround and means not having to log in repeatedly.
However, the full multi-tenant option is the quality solution so I hope it is not long coming. It also needs to include the ability to receive / start chats with folk who are in any one of those tenants... otherwise, it is useless as an IM tool.

"patiently" waiting for this feature to be implemented... come on guys make it happen!

Please have this working and I’ll be very very happy.
