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.
need an update on this MIcrosoft, this continues to separate you horrifically from Discord, Slack, etc. Discord has 'servers' and switching is relatively straight forward, and you can get some level of notification from other servers if your looking at another. maybe call it "Org"s and have it be a set of icons in the top bar? like an icon for my main org and next to it an icon for my 2nd org (I know that will get messy when theres more orgs, but dear lord, start with something!)
This would be extremely useful, please prioritize the implementation. Thank you!

This is probably the most critical issue for the cross-org collaboration.

>Why, because SharePoint includes the name of your business in its URL: there was a cheer at some recent SP conference where they announced URLs could be changed. But I suspect that the URL of an Office 365 group, not the tenant...
We need this feature, it's very important to collaborate with external users. When I discovered that it wasn't possible, I thought... it's a big bug ****! I don't belive. Please develop it to help collaboration between the companies.
This is so typical of Microsoft. They position Teams as a replacement for Slack, and, within a single organization, it has many of the critical features of Slack. But the beauty of Slack is the ability to bring together people focused on a single objective, independent of their organization, platform, or toolset. And Teams fails at this.
We're a small organization that has multiple businesses. Employees have multiple hats doing work on behalf of each business. Within the first 30 seconds of signing up for Microsoft Office, you make a mistake that lives with you forever. Choosing a name for your business. Why, because SharePoint includes the name of your business in its URL. People working on behalf of business ABC cannot share files as coming from business DEF. So, what do you do? Multiple Tenants. These employees need to have multiple Office accounts. Not only do we pay twice to Microsoft, everything within Office works poorly. Constantly signing in and out of accounts. Total disaster. And now Teams.
I have a proposal. Every marketing, manager, and software developer within the Teams team must belong to a separate Tenant from Microsoft in addition to the standard Microsoft employee Tenant. The only way to get Microsoft to fix anything is to make them live with the **** they create.

Would this also resolve the issue of not being able to receive Call alerts when you are switched to another tenant in Teams? This is a really big issue with those users with calling plans / phone system licenses.
I agree with the comments about needing this as soon as possible. Can we please have an update ASAP on when this feature will be available in all versions of Teams.

There is also the issue of the Microsoft Phone system which is incorporated into Teams and works with the Teams Desktop and Mobile Apps. I would imagine that is the toughest nut for Microsoft to *****, getting the Desktop and Mobile Teams Apps to be able to work with multiple Organizations including Phone calls.
We need this as desperately as many of the others on this UserVoice, but we also need it to work with the Microsoft Phone System we have switched to.
This comment by Alex was made in February.. it's now June.. any company taking this long to apply something as simple as this is bound to give you huge headaches...
Lee Palisoc commented
Looking at the O365 Roadmap, it seems like we have to wait a bit longer... sad. :/
@Alex, is there any update for this feature functionality yet??
Can you please open this feature its a pain in the **** and i am minutes awaya from demanding slack in all channels,.
And multi-tenants too, without having to switch with that long process.
At least I can manage this by opening it in 2 different browsers.

It is almost half a year since update. Any news? @Alex?

Any consultant Will have this problem
We use Teams for chat, but contract developers that use Teams in their own organizations have complained that they have to log out and log in to communicate with us. When they jump to our organization they lose notification and real-time communication capability in their organization. We are trying to come up with arguments against moving to Slack.

We need this functionality today! It is *very* hard for people that use Teams for their work to then sign out/in to use it with our non-profit; there are multiple calls for our organization and others to move to Slack and/or Discord because of this. We need a single user to access different Teams each with their respective channels without having to completely log out to access another (preventing app notifications, etc). Help!
