Access Multiple tenants from Teams app with out signing out each time.

It would be good/very helpful if the Windows 10 Teams app supported multiple tenants with unique accounts so users can switch between Teams on different tenants without having to log out. Just like users can have multiple accounts in one profile in Outlook.

Anyone noticed how Microsoft shut down Uservoice and this exact feature request without the possibility to read the comments? It must have been one of the most requested features, and also most infected. The pandemic is looking like it is easing out with the vaccination, and people are returning to at site work. Interesting company philosophy that they ignored this feature request when it was needed the most.

you can switch in the settings area, it is faster then sign out and sign in, but the result is the same. You current can only be in one teams tenant at a time at the moment.

Work around: use teams desktop app for one tenant and for the others browser windows. Use a incognito window in your browser (the one that does not store logins, cookies, etc.) and go to office.com -> teams

The fun starts when you get called in parallel :)

Workaround, not solution.

Microsoft should be looking at solving this, not telling us that creating a browser app and having to have multiple browser profiles open, etc. is a solution.

We recommend you that please give a feedback to https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34580131-fast-switch-between-office-365-tenant.

As more and more people work at home and for multiple companie's / Entities/ Schools they'd like to use multiple profiles in the teams client on windows 10.

As one of our archtects did have multiple profiles it must be posible, so I'd like to vote on this feature to be added soon to the roadmap of the teams client, see this picture in the profile area.

It is normal to work or have responsibilities at multiple institutions... There must be a painless way to switch between tenants, and with teleworking being such an obligation this is a must...

you can go to edge, type teams.microsoft.com (login to your teams). Once logged in, on your browser to your right ( . . . ) click it , hover to Apps -> Manage Apps -> Teams. It will install a new Instance of Teams. Enjoy

I already have teams on the desktop. Installing a new instance of teams does nothing to alleviate the current problem, which is that multiple teams cannot be open at the same time.

This is one of the best alternate solutions I am using, please follow the steps in the below link.

This script will create two teams client versions (one will be on the webbrowser in the backend) but it looks like Teams app only.

Hope it helps.. Cheers

You need to be able to switch Teams tenants without dropping meeting/phone calls .. its very painful experience at the moment

Could not be so complicated to progratically solve.

Please PUSH this thematic, because it is a real pain for each contractor.

And please do it in the App for every environment:
Using Unix or any free choosen Browser should allways be possible in our times!
