    This is a huge problem for me as well. I'm using Teams to manage classes this year and it is completely impersonal to refer to a student as "Lastname, Firstname - UserID". Had I noticed this before I went to the trouble of adding all of my students, encouraging their interaction, and setting up a bunch of features in Teams I would not have chosen Teams at all and frankly, will not use it next semester if this isn't fixed by then.

    A great educational experience starts with a great classroom environment. If Microsoft wants to market Teams as "for education" stuff like this needs to be solved and quickly. Again, I will switch to Slack for next semester if this is still an issue, because its a deal breaker for me.

    Great suggestion for all STEM classes! I’ve moved this feature to ‘under review’.

    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.

    Thanks!
