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.

this item isn't even reported on your roadmap (https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/roadmap?rtc=1&filters=In%20development%2CRolling%20out&searchterms=teams#owRoadmapMainContent) is there any estimate you can provide for that? I mean it's got 12k votes and last update from you guys was in July!

This will be a great feature for all 365 users.

I'm glad this works on Teams for iOS, but it'd be great to have it on desktop. My work, my clients, and now a club I'm in all use Microsoft Teams. It'd be great to not have to use Firefox Container Tabs or my phone to get them all at once. Looking forward to an update.
Any update yet. I consult for 6 companies who now use teams and I have an email address 0365 for each. I am missing important communications because of having to log in and out constantly?
No update since July from admin? Please provide one.
Just tried switching and realized this is a problem, when you have been setup with same account on external third party tenant as your own office365 login and teams. It is appearing blank for me in a new incognito window on external tenant, errors when trying to use the same window.
I agree I don't want fast switching. I want one instance of Teams to support multiple accounts within the same interface. I'm a consultant that has multiple Teams accounts from O365. I want it to function like Outlook where I can have multiple accounts connected and I'd get notifications from any of those from the one Teams app interface.
Any update on timing?

So much this! I'm a member of 4 different Teams orgs, and switching is very frustrating.
Indeed, looking forward to this.
Can do it on the Android app, and that works great.
But not on the desktop app.
(Actually, be nice to have a means by which notifications could come through on all (selected) organisations! :) )
Very much waiting for this.
What is the progress on this feature?
I am working in a consulting company and need to have this capability as i have different email addresses due to the domains access on sharepoint too.
Fast switching is completely pointless, almost literally missing the point. It needs to support multiple accounts, and it should've before Teams was even publicly released.
My company was bought out and we are going through a 2 year merger of systems. During this time I am expected to manage Teams in 2 different domains, thus, 2 different accounts. The work around I am using is to open 2 different browsers (Chrome and Firefox) so I can have 2 different sessions but this is a pain to manage.
Please Microsoft. Make the multiple accounts a priority.

Can we have a timeline when we can expect the next updates for all platforms (including apple)?
Microsoft, please make this happen. Look at Slack... They were able to do this from day one, why can't you? We need this, as we collaborate with multiple companies and switching between tenants just does not cut it!
On Teams mobile app, it's easily to switch between different accounts but seems I am not able to find this option on desktop app.

The Azure multi-tenant app is fabulous!!! Teams should be releasing the update soon!
Any updates? This feature cannot come fast enough
