I wouldn't call this a guest account or partner... many people in the Slack world work across several scenarios:
Scenario #1 is critical to my business; I cannot log in/out for the two efforts I have underway.

Would the Azure B2B collaboration work for this?
I do agree though, the easiest would be to just allow the user to login to mulitple accounts at one time (similar to Slack). I actually have the reverse problem. I'm the client and have a couple consulting partners I want to include in a team but it's difficult for them as they have their own O365 teams setup plus other clients to connect with, etc.
I tried to click the link to vote but it doesn't seem to be functioning.

The correct link to the UserVoice item is:

this is become a major issue accross microsoft products. They either dont support multi-account/tenant or it is a major pain.

I believe the user voice link doesn't address the originally stated issue, which is that a user from one tenant can't join another tenant's team. For example, assuming both a project consultant and the customer are on a business plan, the consultant can't create a team for the project and invite the customer to join it.

I got this working now in my Windows10 desktop app. However, the mobile apps still lack the option to switch tenant...

Not fair, Dennis :)
You need to at least point us in the right direction to do the same :)

I am part of 3 "Teams"/Different companies in which I own. I have now reverted 1 company away from Teams and back to Trello/mobile messaging, access 1 company Team page via Chrome, and the main company via Desktop and phone app. I wish we were never advised to use Teams...pushing to move all companies back to Trello for seamless multiple account access. Can someone at Microsoft please advise if this feature will ever exist? If not, back to Google and Trello options as they are MUCH easier to implement for multiple companies.

This thread seems to be addressing two different problems. The one that I'm interested in seeing resolved is the ability to have two instances of Teams open at the same time. I'm a consultant and use Teams both for my client and for my own organization. Like others on this thread, I have to log in and out several times a day in order to traverse organizations. It would be ideal if the two accounts could be in a single UI (like having multiple email accounts within Exchange), but I'd be ok if I literally had to instantiate two instances of Teams. Just do something so I don't have to log in and out and in and out. Becomes even more painful when all these orgs use multifactor auth!

A good articulation of the problem and possible solutions by Lisa. Slack has solved this problem with multiple accounts in the single UI. I can't think of a MS product that does this yet, but Teams would be a great place to start. I have six office 365 accounts and receive teams messages from all of them. I live my life logging in and out of office 365 accounts :(
I would have thought the federation option (like skype4business) would be a pathway forward (although can't get this working on teams yet).
Looking forward to a solution.

We definitely need this. For my situation I was able to get around this by using the web browser in Incognito for one company and use the desktop client for the other.
11-08-2018 01:11 AM
Do we know when this feature will be available in Teams? It give us headaches too that it is not possible to use Teams with multiple accounts. :)
11-23-2018 12:36 AM
Great scenario! This is actually a requirement for us to be able leave Slack for using Teams instead.

Let the company have a settings on the company domain level that user is allowed to sign in with only one organization. And if user is setting up teams on different machine other than Org domain, then let them connect to as many orgs as they need.

Many MVPs who need to access Office 365 for multiple customers now use Chrome's ability to have multiple identities, use the Manage People link under the person icon at the top right. Then you can easily switch between multiple tenants for the full suite of browser apps including Teams.
It's not ideal, really you would want one activity feed and source of notifications, but it's probably the best option for now.

One workaround is to use Google Chrome's Profile feature to manage multiple identities. You can create as many as you want and create a desktop icon for each profile. It can store credentials so you get single sign on experience with different users for the same or different tenants.

This is a huge issue for me switching between tenants. I try to work around it by signing off and back on, but that takes a good 30 minutes of changing Settings to not auto-sign in, signing out, having Teams auto-sign me in (yes, even though I just turned that off). Going into Settings, changing them yet again, and repeat until finally Teams prompts for a different account.
Seriously, I lose 1-2 hours every single day on this. I can't even use the web-version of teams because the only thing that can be shared in a meeting are PPT files, so screen sharing meetings are not even an option!
Unfortunately this still doesn't solve the Teams App issue. Using multiple chrome instances for Teams is one thing, but the web interface is missing many things that the desktop app has.
Yes, Chrome is missing some things desktop has but for me it is still way better way than to switch to different tenants in a app. It a browser is not a perfect solution - but a solution that meets even 70% of things - I rather use it than choose not to use Teams.
Some people use Franz to access multiple tenants as well. That app too has it's limitations, very much like with a browser, but apart from meetings you ought to get chat & conversations working.
