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.
I have two office 365 accounts and would be great if I can add both of them on Teams and be able to switch back and forth without singing in and out.
I currently have 3 accounts and is a nightmare not having this all integrated similar to Slack. Had we known this was not possible would have continued with the better solutions of Google, Slack, Trello, Zoom, etc. Teams and Planner are not as user friendly and more expensive. Bad decision for us to switch so far.
This is rapidly becoming a very important feature for businesses, individuals, or teams, within our organization that assist in managing multiple businesses.
Please implement this!

I am able to switch Multiple Accounts when Guest User is Created Via Azure AD.
I totally agree.

Please do It! It is part of a minimal service
Yes, it is holding us from adaptation and we are pushing our clients to not to opt Teams for our projects.
This is kind of creating bitter experience.

Tenant switching has put a major roadblock in the way of Teams adoption for my organisation. As soon as we try to sell Teams to a new group of potential users, they say "can I use this to collaborate with my (clients|suppliers|colleagues)" so we demonstrate guest access with the tenant-switching behaviour ... and we never hear from them again

Not supported by any means, but a workaround for accessing Multiple Teams: https://realtimeuc.com/2017/09/multiteams/
An absolute MUST to be accomplished rather sooner than later. I should be on three different teams in three different ADs/O365 but can‘t because of this limitation. Even OneNote seems to handle it.

Azure Storage Explorer and Visual Studio handle this pretty well -- why not look at how they do it?

When I have gotten external sharing to work on the Windows client, it seems to implement by switching accounts. I.e. if I click on an external Team, it is like the Teams login automatically switches to the external Team's domain.

This is a big deal most of our IT Staff is part of two accounts and we can't be on one server if we are on the other. It really breaks communications down. Fix this or you will never be able to take on Slack.

This is the single worst problem with teams. I've had three of my clients start using teams (at my suggestion) but because I can't monitor all the accounts at once, I'm recommending Slack to my new clients until this is fixed.

Slack has this for years and this will become a blocker for our whole Company.
External customers are using Teams and we HAVE TO USE their accounts. How is this possible without this Feature.

I absolutely understand, this might be not that easy to implement. On the desktop, we can use another Teams session with another tenant's account in a browser window. But there is no solution on the mobile device. It would be good to be able to launch the Teams website in major mobile browsers, even if we won't get the full Teams experience.
We tried our best to use Teams but recently had to move over to Slack because of this. This is definitely a huge issue with a few of your tools (Skype for Business being another) as logging in and out to use another account just doesn't work due to the lack of notifications coupled with the poor user experience. It would be great to see some movement here as Teams is a great tool and we would love to be able to use it.

Our company is shifting from Slack to Teams and this is a huge constraint for us. Kindly give this feature some much needed priority.
