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.

A must have for working with customer Teams infrastructure and ourselves at the same time!
Agree, Slack can do this!
Please make an effort on this one...//Ann-Sofie
Another vote for 'make this happen ASAP'!
Instead of switching tenants to see the teams associated with another company, can we have all the teams from all my tenants in the Teams list? It's too impractical to switch tenants when the chat is active on both tenants.
The use case here is our Customer has O365 and Teams in their organisation, they've created a team for their project. We have Teams in our organisation, and use it for company chat. At the moment I have to switch tenants (which takes time, and hides updates from the other tenant) to keep up to date with that. I'd rather just (from the interface side) merge the two tenants together and see the teams I'm in in both organisations in the one "Teams" tab.

Agree with everyt thing here. It is difficult to keep track of the different teams in different tenants when you don't see the notifications.
And i'd like to add, when i'm in my organizations tenant, I see the option for switching to external tenant, but when in external tenant, this option is not there. The only way to go back to my organization's tenant is to log off and start the application again. If in web browser, i have to log off and all open office 365 tabs also logs off.
Please do something about this.

Same here, similar to Slack please. Currently have 1 small company off Teams entirely, 1 company accessed via Chrome (not ideal), and 1 company via desktop and mobile apps. REALLY wish everything could be integrated like Slack. When will this be enabled? If never, please let us know so we can move back to Google/Slack/Trello away from Microsoft/Teams/Planner immediately.

The tenant switching is a very poor experience for providing guest access. It's painfully slow on the desktop clients. The speed on ios is much better, but still not the best user experience.
With Cisco's release of WebEx Teams, they are making the guest access experience and security a key feature differentiator. I'd love to see Microsoft invest more in the guest access experience.

This is an extremely prohibitive user experience. All channels need to be visible on the same screen

I would like the possibility to log on to additional accounts within the same instance of the application, or to be able to start additional instances.
When working as a consultant, I need to connect to both our own and customers teams at the same time, and currently, I need to log out and into another account to gain access to customer Teams.
the app version 1.1.00.8751 from 4/11/18 no longer has the menu item to switch tenants. I can still do it in the browser, just not in the app. Is there a setting or is it hidden in a menu somewhere else?

Much needed, and because of the inability, the reason we still use Slack on several projects. I have several clients, with their own o365 domains, but Teams are not being used because too hard to switch accounts all the time...Please add soon, also with support on mobile app (Android)
Jan Einar Ingier commented
Agree, member of several Teams, and very inconvenient to switch accounts all day. I also would like this feature on my Android App...
Hi we are a company of multiple business units. and those business units are on different tenants. A lot of our employees are in contacts with others employees of thous Business units. and we really need this to be implemented. Badly needed feature please expedite. Thanks!.
Really disappointing that this does not work yet! I am so enthousiastic about teams, but the fact that you cannot use it across multiple O365 domains, makes it really sort of worthless for us and we are now looking in to moving to slack, which I would not like. Please makes us happy again!

Friendly ping here on this feature. My company is evaluating slack-v-teams. We'd like to use teams but the inability to be logged into multiple O365 accounts at once makes using Teams untenable. We each work with different clients and those clients have their own O365 accounts.
We don't care at all about federation or sharing channels with external users. We just need to be able to log into multiple O365 accounts/sites simultaneously.

How long are we going to stay tuned?
James Southward commented
This is really needed. I've just been added to an internal Microsoft Team for a project as a guest but now I can't access my work Team without logging out and back in as they are on different emails.
This is a must have feature! Please Microsoft Team expedite this.

I echo what others have said here. I use Teams for both my full time job, as well as the non-profit I run. Having the ability to have two accounts open at once would truly save time and strengthen the products usability for many people.
