Hi,

 

I've seen a couple of post from people asking if it's possible to sign into MS Teams with a tenant signin and a guest sign in, did anyone else had this need and if so, maybe a solution to it.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @jvdwesthuizen,

I am not aware of a solution for that besides letting the invitation go to your tenant account so the Org (which is inviting you) appears in the upper right corner of your client.

 

Otherwise, you could possibly use the client and web app simultaneously?

 

Sven

You can use the Teams client for one account only at any given time! But if that account is invited to other ORGs you have to swap between these from the clients! Not an ideal way since you are missing calls and notifications etc while you are on another org....Ms is working on doing this more smooth!
I suggest using different browser profiles for each teams org you are invited to and use the Teams client for your own!

Hi,@svenseidenberg

 

Great thanks for the reply. One thing on this that I noticed is, if it's switched to the "guest" invitation through the app it hangs and eventually times out. This is if the outside org is inviting on hte same email address.

 

The web app should be the best way to go for now.

 

Thanks.

Hi @adam deltinger 

 

Thansk for the reply. As mentioned in the reply to @svenseidenberg it hangs if switched in the app, so only way to go, for now as MS is working on a solution ons this, it's the way to go.

 

Thanks, I will try the different browser this as well for additional test.

 

Much appreciated.

Four options really.
1. Franz meetfranz.com works like trillian, you can have multiple tenants signed in and or accounts.
2. Browser profiles for each account.
3. Primary login on Teams client, backup via browser.
4. Create Chrome webapps for each: https://tomtalks.blog/2017/11/microsoft-teams-guest-access-chrome-web-apps/

I prefer number 1, it's easy and works well.

Isn’t that 4 options?? :)
Yeah I fixed it right after, another came to mind when I was finishing it off :p
Yeah, saw that after posting!!

Hi all,

 

This has been resolved, what I did was:

 

1. It was a company outside our domain that created the account.

2. Asked them to remove the account and recreate the account.

3. Logged into teams again BUT you need to use Work / School account (Business) and not personal, otherwise it won't work.

 

Happy times.
