A thread that originally started in 2017 asking for an account switch to be added to Microsoft Teams was supported by around 30,000 users.
The original poster said, “We need to be able to log in with multiple accounts. Many of us have multiple O365 accounts for various reasons (advice, etc.) and we would need to be able to access Teams directly.”
“This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but a case in which new O365 credentials were created for us in a different tenant. The app now only allows a single logged-in account at a time, and that’s a blocker.”
In response to this thread, an administrator recently wrote: “The engineering team is still working on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients.
“We’re going to be launching support for 1 work / school account and 1 personal account first so that users can enjoy work and personal life teams side by side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still under development and will come soon later.”
While other Microsoft Teams users have been frustrated that the account switch feature arriving in December isn’t as comprehensive as they’d hoped it would be.
