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.
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.

This is one of the most annoying features about Teams is that it only supports one "team". I am a consultant as well and work in multiple "teams" but I have to constantly log out and back in again to use them.

I'm glad you are working on it! This is a deal maker and it would mean the end for Slack and Discord for business usage.
Please do this
I absolutely support the idea of having multiple accounts. From Outlook365 I could schedule Skype for Business meetings for multiple accounts/customers and see them in one view. In Teams I first have to switch account before being able to plan such a call.
Please can you give us an timeline. I asking becouse we have Adoption problems with user ! We are a young company and we have the need to use pstn calling with teams and in other discussion we have with support and account team we see no solution for desk phones in the next month. And as you know when you Switch the organisation you also switch the PSTN connectivity and number! Please hurry up with any solution which bring organisation together.

This is a must have, its very time comsuming to switch between domains/guest access to other domains. Should be setup maybe like a tab based system .

I agree. This is a fundamental issue, the way people are starting to use Teams. I can't keep logging in and logging out to get to other systems. I have different login IDs for the different systems, but I can't seem to run two sessions...

2 years in the making - any ETA please?
Marvin Riebe commented
Any updates? Really appreciate it!

Hope this will help everyone to use multiple Teams, until we get the same functionality as Slack.
I am Global Admin for 7 different organisations.
The way I use Teams and Office 365 is to add my primary account for one organisation, as a Guest user in the other 6 organisations.
This means I only need one login and can easily swap between Teams.
The downside of this is that there are some minor restrictions on Guest accounts.
yep make it like slack

I have a school account and a work account so it’s frustrating to have to sign in and out of the app to toggle between the two. If outlook mobile app has this function so should teams
This is essential to make the transition from Skype to Teams a success. Can we have an update on timelines for fixing this issue please. Many Thanks

This is a feature in urgent need, my employer had many companies, I had to switch different accounts to communicate.

This may be the most important feature required. I was thinking to move at least 20 users but will have to wait for this to be available. Should be such a simple feature
Thomas Radosh commented
it should be ideally implemented in a similar way to what Slack does, allowing you very quickly switch accross and benefit from this amazing tool that is Teams.
Either this and/or the Yammer way of working it.
And also...it is crucial that mentions and so on quickly travel through between tenants.
One more thing. If someone places a call to you in a tenant where you’re not active on at the moment. The call should “pass through” like with skype and/or if you are active in the same tenant.
How can I be notified when this is available? desparately need a better way to switch tenants!
