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 ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. The feature team is continuing to work on support for multiple accounts on desktop. We’ll keep you posted as we have more details.

Absoultely having the same problem with Multiple logins from multiple agencies/roles/jobs etc.
The suggested solution of getting them all to use my one Teams ID login would never work currently. Nor that they will all agree to be federated. An absolute need to be able to rapidly switch across logins. Needs then also to be clear across the '365 suite' under which login you are currently working.

I also have a multi-tenant organization and would like this feature. I would be fine if you simply let us open multiple windows, but that is not allowed right now.
When will it be available?

Any updates on this feature request? (Echoing others since it's been since August, and it was previously being worked on)
I totally agree on this one.
Guests getting alerts and not having to switch are two must have features.

We really need this one.
Not getting alerts from teams were you are a guest and constant tenant switching makes B2B guest access very difficult to use and to sell.
I hope this improvement finds it way into teams very soon...
Really need this. Slack eats Teams for breakfast in this aspect, with fast switching between organizations.
I use the Web portal teams on one account and the desktop app for my other MS account. Crop the window so they are both the same size and you don't even notice the difference.

did something change in this question?
Nope. For the sake of security, mobile device management, this should be enabled via the ability to have multiple clients open. Multiple identities in the same app instance just invites problems.

Worst case scenario, make it similar to Outlook where you can have multiple profiles for logging into and a prompt to choose which profile to sign in with upon the application launch or device start up.
Any updates on this issue/feature?
Any news?? We constantly work with external partners and cross-company teams. The current method of dealing with guest users is horrible.

Please make this happen as soon as possible! It would be a huge benefit in time saving and complaints from my users. I have tenants that work closely together and I get complaints daily about this issue.
This should be a priority if you want consultants to use or recommend Teams.
This really needs to be a priority for anyone who doesn't work exclusively for a large corporation. Teams is better than Slack for our needs, but until this problem is solved, like everyone else, we can't migrate. Shouldn't take forever to sort this out - can't require magic.

You can access educational organisations that have been attached in Teams Admin/External access +Add a domain.
I have another tertiary institution I access from my Teams dashboard via a drop down menu. You will need IT Admin or GA Admin to set this up. I can click between tenants at will.

We will NOT implement Teams until there is an ability to quickly and easily switch between tenants.
