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.

duplicate idea, I agree, multi tenant

Need this feature. A must!

Having guest access is nice but it still requires switching which takes 10-20 seconds. Unacceptably slow. I need immediate access to multiple Teams to be able to work productively, and for this, I need to be signed in with multiple accounts simultaneously.

The president of the company has two accounts. This is very crucial for our company now ;)
But seriously, this would be very very helpful.
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.

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.
