can we configure multiple accounts in MS-Teams e.g. own organization and another by/for the customer

If you mean can you access multiple tenants in Teams then yes. As well as being a user in your own tenant you can be a guest and work in several others. The same is true for your customers

Hope that clarifies and answers your question.

Best, Chris

Hi,

 

I'm not sure that I understand the question. But you can invite guests to your Teams organization, the guest is a user in another Teams organization or a user without any Teams account anywhere.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/guest-access

 

 

Previous comments are correct, and there is difference for internal and guest accounts! With teams there is some differences! But they will have full access to files and conversations!

See here for comparison:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/guest-capabilities-in-teams-d03fdf5b-1a6e-48e4-8e07-b13e135...

General guest info in Teams:

Thanks. Let me put my question the other way. Taking example of Outlook where you can have multiple email accounts configured and can receive mails by not having them to switch between accounts; similarly can I have MS-Team app (or web app) configured so that I can be part of the conversations in both my organization groups/teams and my customers group/teams.

Solution
Not yet but there is a uservoice open for this

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17750851-i-want-to-use-multipl...

We’ll bring it up at the Teams AMA on the 14th February. Be good for you to join us.

Best, Chris
No, you can use chat for talking to other tenants, but not team wise! Then you have to switch tenants! Other option is to use different browser profiles and use the web client to have multiple tenants open in teams
Currently I use franz for this until Microsoft adds in functionality for it. It works well.

Thank you!! Hope this would be on the future feature list

SOLUTION:

1) "Win + I" => Accounts => Other Users => Add someone else to this PC (for example, user without Microsoft account named MSTeams, not Administrator) 
2) "Ctrl + Alt + Del" => Switch user 
3) Login to second MSTeams user 
4) Download and install MSTeams 
5) Login to the MSTeams using an account with less activity and close application 
6) Ctrl + Alt + Del => Switch user 
7) Return to your main account 
8) Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\ and find cmd.exe 
9) Click "Shift + Right Mouse" and chose "Run as different use" (find in google how to add it if you dont have this option) 
10) Login with MSTeams user 
11) Write following command in the console 
12) C:\Users\MSTeams\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\Update.exe --processStart "Teams.exe"

To run MSTeams again repeat following steps 
8) Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\ and find cmd.exe 
9) Click "Shift + Right Mouse" and chose "Run as different user" (find in google how to add it if you dont have this option) 
10) Login with MSTeams user 
11) Write following command in the console 
12) C:\Users\MSTeams\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\Update.exe --processStart "Teams.exe"

This steps can be optimized by PowerShell script: 
#run as admin 
if (!([Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal][Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).IsInRole([Security.Principal.WindowsBuiltInRole] "Administrator")) { Start-Process powershell.exe "-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File `"$PSCommandPath`"" -Verb RunAs; exit }

$username = '.\MSTeams' 
$password = 'YOUR_PASSWORD_OF_THE_MSTEAMS_USER.'

$securePassword = ConvertTo-SecureString $password -AsPlainText -Force 
$credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential $username, $securePassword 
Start-Process 'C:\Users\MSTeams\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\Update.exe' '--processStart "Teams.exe"' -Credential $credential

 

Also, you can add this script to the windows scheduler with log in to account trigger with admin permission

@Christopher HoardDo you have an clue when the option will be available. I am member of more than one organizations and need to use one user on desktop and a second on mobile. meaning when out of office, cannot comunicate with both organizations. not so cool...

Are you guest in the other org or do you have a separate account in both?

seperate accounts @adam deltinger 

They have no ETA on this feature currently! So for now you have to log out and back in with the other account or why not two phones ?? :)

Nice try :) just got rid of the second phone when i moved up to dual sim ...@adam deltinger 

There’s pros and cons with everything :\

@adam deltinger Any chance this could get done?

 

Nowadays we work in organisations all around, as someone pointed out, it's like being able to access multiple email addresses in Outlook -- a necessity. 

 

Slack handles this kind of functionality without a sneeze...

 

S.

 

They are still working on it, not on the roadmap yet.

I normally work in 2-3 different Teams tenants at the same time during one day and then I use different profiles in Edge (chronium) or Chrome. I think this is the best way until multi account support is released.
