Suphatra, the ability to mention other content in same and other Teams together with mentioning another Team's name is highly important and already provided by other similar products. Is it something your team is looking into? Can you prioritize it?
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.
@Suphatra, can you clarify if your work includes the ability to run multiple instance of the Teams desktop app using same logged in account in order to address the scenario raised at this comment? This will provide a productivity boost for the overall usage of the Teams app...!

@Suphatra. Our use case relates to the merged request to open multiple instances of Teams. We do NOT need to log in with a different tenant, rather we want to be able to work in multiple areas of the Teams app concurrently without having to do a lot of clicking to move around. E.g., I may have a one-on-one chat window open with a team member while I am working in a channel or on a Teams wiki page. When I go to the chat it takes a lot of clicking to get back to the wiki. Similarly, I have had a video chat going while at the same time looking through channels in a Team. I would like to keep the video feed open on one monitor, full screen, while editing and writing in the channel on my second monitor. I may want to review edit suggestions in a conversations in a chat while making edits to a wiki or OneNote page, clicking back and forth between the two is very slow.

Thank you so much for this feedback. I was actually sitting with a user yesterday who was struggling to add users to a channel because she was typing in names one by one, which is a normal inclination. I showed her that she can put any distribution list into the field (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org) and it would invite everyone who is on that email address. Try it out and let me know if you have any more questions. I’ve also routed this feedback to design so they can implement a sign or something to show people that they can do this.
Thank you for helping us make Teams awesome!
The ability to add a list of individuals which are not part of common DL is highly important for our organization (large global enterprise)! Many times the scenario is that users would like to copy/paste from list of recipients at Outlook mail or calendar invitation, Excel/CSV file etc.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
Agree this is a key basic functionality which will address a pretty common usage scenario and save a lot of work when customers need to deal with such a scenario...!
