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.

Nearly 1000 comments from people looking for this to be implemented, with no further updates in the last 3 months? I echo the sentiments of many of the others, switching isn't all that useful; I'd like to be able to be logged in to the same instance with multiple accounts... or, barring that, at LEAST be able to open multiple instances of teams and log in separately on each.

We are in the process of switching over from Slack to Teams but this is fast becoming a blocker to us adopting Teams across our business. Clients are not happy to switch between tenants and are missing notifications in chats. Can we get the release date please?
Jason Armitage commented
Both my consultancy and my main client use O365.
We've used Teams in our consultancy for some time and now my client has just switched from Slack to Teams!
Both use Teams for _real-time_ comms - I now have to decide if I interact with my consultancy team or my client's team.
I also agree with Heather "fast switching" doesn't help with notifications - If I'm away from my desk - I'm always going to miss out important messages from one team or the other.
I don't think that working for more than one organisation is a new concept.
Heather Maldonado commented
Please skip "fast switching" and get right to the real ask. We don't want to switch...I can't switch when I am in the middle of a chat with one client but also need to simultaneously chat with another person in my own org and/or another client with a different tenant. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, just give us the final solution. I agree with others below that for a temp fix, it would be better to at least having multiple app/client windows open at the same time but logged in to different tenants...that would at least let me do what I need to. fast switching is useless for me
also looking for this feature

Seriously in stages? Throw out the stages, and fix the actual problem! We need to be able to chat with different organizations at the same time. I'm running out of browsers. As a quick fix can we get to start Teams multiple times at least?????????
Hello, Any update on the release date? Thanks
just like office outlook software , we can add different email account in the same GUI , and we can ready and replay the msg some time, just click the different dir or account

MS how about an updated response, it's been 3 months now since the previous response. I know it takes time to roll out new features but we're trying to plan for the future as well. If we can't get at least a response I have no other choice but to go with Slack or other application. Just a response, that's all we need please. thank you.

How can I get added to trialing this feature?
Ben Johnstone commented
yep, really need this feature. Multiple clients with their own office 365 accounts and email address with each.
This looks like it's been added. At least to our tenant. Can someone from MS comment?
we really need to access teams from different organisations in the app without any login or switch.
Instant messaging in different teams form different organisation must be available
Andy Sims commented
So now its the Fall, and no news?
Fast tenant switching is such a minor user requirement that I don't think any of us will use it.
What we all need NOW is the ability to interact with different teams over multiple organisations at the same time, and I mean at the same time. On a teams conf call with org A and someone in org B sends me a message that I can respond to without interrupting the call I am on.
No logging in/out etc - all my teams accounts work at the same time, and I now have four of them.
As the others a release date would be great.
Also I wonder about you said Alex : "Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching."
Does it means that while in a Teams call we will still not be able to switch to another tenant to check something without killing the call ?
Clearly this is mandatory. Uses cases : Internal company call & need to check a data on a customer teams. It happens everyday.
Dhaval Faria commented
I work as a consultant with many companies and this is must needed feature for me. Most of my clients have moved to Teams from Slack. I constantly need to sign out and sign in with different teams account.

Any update on "Fall" Release? this is clearly a show stopper for the hundreds of users who have commented and the thousands who haven't.
As we are now essentially in Fall when can we expect to see some outcomes?
