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 engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.
You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.

I can't understand why this is taking so long but the mobile app has it from the beginning. And why can we only have one personal and one work accounts but not two work accounts? Whyyyy
Come on Microsoft, how hard can it be to allow us to fast switch between different accounts...
I am confused why Microsoft thinks that adding the option to login to a personal OneDrive has ANYTHING to do with this actual problem that was originally posted here. We need the ability to login to multiple work accounts. I personally do not have a personal teams account, nor do I have the desire to have one.

Agreed! definitely a MUST!! Thank you all for the comments on this thread! I have been trying to switch btwn 3 separate MS teams Businesses and could not figure out why I can't figure out how to!!
This is still long overdue and needs to be completed.

How can it be SO EASY to switch between O365 accounts on the Mobile App and such a pain on the Desktop App!?
Please FIRE your Desktop App development team and give your Mobile App development team A PROMOTION to develop the Desktop App. ;-)

Must have feature!
Jan Edelmann commented
This is a Must feature. Multiple organization's is just a part of normal life. You might be a member of city board (@city.org), own compan(ies) @1, @2, customers' companies, @3, @4. (Uh)
In this kind of situation you are searching for solutions that will solve this out. -> in the end MS will lose customers obviously.

Can we please have an update?

Last update from nov 5 2020, roadmap says it's GA but that is only part of what is needed: MULTIPLE work/school accounts!
No updates, this is terrible. Teams is so close to great and this is one feature that would really help so many people obviously...

For multiple teams with multiple accounts opened in parallel I use edge profiles, 1 profile per user account of each tenant, works perfectly

I have a Teams work account and a completely separate school account - both are enterprise accounts. I sign-in to desktop app with work account and try to use browser for school account. But to complicate things, there are times when I'm already logged into the browser with my work account to access shared files in work account. So then there is a long process to sign out of work account in browser and sign into school account in browser so I can join Teams meetings via my school account. I have also used Google with multiple accounts and while they are not perfect they are better at letting me switch between accounts and in fact they seem to mostly remember my intent (i.e., if I open a work file they automatically access it via my work account, and so on..), also they have an easy switcher in top right drop down to switch between my various logged in Google accounts.
Microsoft - please take some inspiration from Google (or not) but either ways, please allow me to easily switch between my enterprise Teams/Microsoft accounts in browser as well as in the Teams desktop app!

This feature is extremely important. I use 3 different organization accounts. The switching between them is extremely painful, slow, and inconvenient. I think Teams has the worst UX for this flow on the market...
Sean Akers commented
This is becoming more and more important for me as well. I'll soon be needing to use Teams with 3 corporate accounts. Switching between is a total pain and using the web client is pretty sub-optimal.
Consulting is a $250 billion industry, why is this feature only available on iOS when the road map has a release for February CY2021 !?

Roadmap link hasn't been updated since February. Where does this stand? Definitely a feature I have a need for.
I think what everyone is looking for is the ability to be able to sign in to multiple accounts on a single Teams Desktop App and then have the ability to "Switch" between these accounts without the pain of logging out and logging in to other work accounts.
This feature is readily available on collab apps like Slack on Web / Desktop / Mobile and even works well on the Teams mobile app. Surely this feature can be made available on the Desktop interface?
I have 8 work accounts and the switching between accounts is a real pain!
The comment from Microsoft on this thread says support for multiple accounts is still being worked out and will come at a later date, this was written 11 months back.
The Roadmap link mentions nothing of this either!
Please share an update!
