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.
I don't use teams by choice but if I could get all of my communicatoins (different tennants) in one app I would hate it less.

We are not necessarily looking for just "fast tenant switching". We want to be able to know that when we are in a one tenant, that another tenant has sent us a message via some indicator so we can switch.
Even better would be the ability to have a consolidated multi-tenant view on a single screen. Stretch yourselves to hit that target!

When is this coming following Ignite? Thank you.
@alex Any way to get access to this feature early??
Any update after Ignite ?
Apparently it is coming soon. The Android app now has the ability to add multiple accounts to the app. This seems to have been with the most recent update. The desktop app, however, lags behind in functionality and that's where it needs to work like Discord or Slack. It's the only feature missing for me in an otherwise exceptional experience. For no, the android app is more capable than the Windows app and the web site.
Updates @Microsoft? Especially as a guest...This is a productivity killer for so many right now.
I agree that this will make me turn back to Slack.

Same comment as a lot of other users. When is this feature available? Fast switching is not the solution.
Mitch Labrador commented
Any updates on the availability of this feature?
Waiting for collaboration with our partners

Thanks for the update on iOS and Android apps! Any updates on desktop?
Luke Miller commented
Any updates Microsoft? I have multiple companies running Office 365/Teams etc. Would love to be able to run multiple companies from my desktop!

I can confirm Haider Ali's finding. Account switching works on Android. Still waiting on desktop though.
Haider Ali commented
Just noticed that it has been rolled out to iOS and Android apps. Go to settings and Add Account.
This one feature is what is keeping me on Slack for now.
Where is the update? Can we at least get an update about the update? Justin King exactly describes what we all want. Not to mention that notifications are completely broken in MacOS and I only get notified about other org chats after I get an email notification that I haven't seen a chat from an hour ago. This is horrifically broken when compared to Slack.
We are halfway into the fall and there are still no signs of this being rolled out when it's something that's already in place for a lot of other platforms like people have mentioned. When is this coming?
So why is Org account available on mobile app version of Teams but not on desktop app?Any word on whether Tenant and Org switching will be available for DESKTOP App?
@alex. Amy new update on this? I see there are >12k people waiting for this feature that was requested over 2.5 years ago and has been worked on for about a year. Can you send some updates on the status every now and then? Thanx so much
