Ability to switch between accounts
Need the ability to switch between accounts without having to log out and sign in.

As an Administrator, I actually have 2 email addresses (accounts) within our MS Teams organization. Each account has differing access to the Teams we have created within our Office365 environment (ie. we have 12 locations each with their own Team). I use multiple devices to connect to Teams. On my iOS devices, I can simply select the account I wish to access. Switching is very easy. On the PC Desktop App however, I have to log out and in to switch accounts. Seems odd that this sort of thing is platform specific.
I agree, having to sign out/in is such an archaic process, just let me switch accounts Microsoft

Working in different teams organisations needs not only a switch, it also needs notifications showing up regardless of the account you are currently working in.
Fully agree with this. Users should be able to use two different accounts at the same time without having to sign out and log into the other. The users maybe two different people using the same system. For example I use teams for work while my sisters school has started using teams for their online learning. My sister would like to use teams as well but I dont want to log out from my work account.

This is much needed. An account switch feature is available and works great on mobile. Where is it in browser/on desktop?

This is a must have in many scenario
1. not all companies who have more than one tenant wants to create a federated trust between the two to allow cross-tenant communication between tenants so you need to switch often. At this time, I keep a web-based Teams opened as well as the app to allow this.
2. for any support partner or consultant, having this is a must.
3. now that Teams is part of the Office install, it should follow all other office apps account logic and provide the ability to switch account.
Though seemingly small, this is a HUGE time-saver. One of the many things I loved about Slack.
