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.
Any update on this feature? I also have the same issue and now thinking of switching to Slack if this does not implement in the near future
This would be great, I use Teams in may organization but, as a teacher, would like also to engage my undergrad students in Teams for Education.

Same here. I work as a freelance consultant for multiple organizations. They all use Teams. Similar to the OP, I have to log out and log back in with different accounts to check conversations in different organizations.
Since Microsoft is pushing Teams as THE communications platform, it only makes sense to configure multiple accounts and switch between them without having to log in and out every time.
This feature cannot come soon enough. I need it yesterday!

Any update on this Alex?

Waiting for this future update from Microsoft to support users from multiple tenant. As switching to multiple organisation is very confusing . Please come up with update were we can maintain all teams ( with internal / external(guest) ) accounts under one organisation.

Just adding to the pile here... I have 3 other organizations I am waiting to transition to O365 once this happens. For now we'll continue to use Slack/G Suite :(

Any news to the ETA. Really demanding this feature. It’s a game changer!
Good to see other users venting about this delay, I don't know why my firm wants to stick to Microsoft products anyway
Sorry I'm sure it there's some technical challenge that we don't appreciate but this should have been in place long ago. I really like Teams but for this part, terribly thought out in terms of usability. Because one has to log out and log back in, I have a partner organization that invited me to theirs, well, we're pretty much dead to each other because we forget to switch.
wondering if there is any ETA on this feature? wondering why MS cannot achieve this in a simple way how Slack achieved - granted Teams has to support SSO/modern authentication
We were hoping to use Teams as the base for our (live and remote) seminars. We teach week-long seminars for engineers throughout the world. Some have O365 accounts with Teams at other orgs, some don’t. The whole “guest” user experience is a nightmare and completely prevents us from using Teams for this. Sad, really.
Would love an update on this. we work in a multi affiliate global organisation who are all in office 365 but different tenants. it feels very jarring how awkward it to collaborate with each other in teams.
Microsoft at it since Feb 2019 ! Better hurry or might be turn into another Windows OS for Phones lol
Logging in with multiple account = yes please!
SHARED CHANNELS ACROSS TEAMS should be a different uservoice, it describes something entirely different

+1 here. I am an IT consultant and have multiple clients who give me licenses and accounts in their system not to mention that I use teams/o365 for internal use as well. Being able to swap easily between accounts would be a massive help!
It is literally the craziest miss ever. It is causing me soooooo much pain right now.

This is actively blocking me and my team from adopting Teams as a primary chat/voip tool. Is there an ETA (even a rough one) for this feature?
Any news on this? It's the number 1 issue/problem for me right now (and I use a *lot* of Microsoft tooling) - the web version is getting worse and worse (couldn't join a meeting at all in it today as audio kept failing).
Even if the client was just modified to allow multiple instances to run that would do me fine for now - surely that can't be so difficult (while we wait for a proper implementation)?
Any updates on release of this feature, I have 3 orgs I need to access teams on and currently the best I can do is 3 browser sessions 8-(

Guest access just doesn't work.
(No I do not mean it is impractical. I think it WOULD be impractical. If it worked.)
The Windows Teams Client just logs me in as another user if I switch company.
The Android Client simply crashes, or returns me to the guest company account.
