Hello - we are a MS Partner and we have consulting engagements with clients that use Teams. I'm curious if we have something set incorrectly. Here's the annoyance (or config problem we have).
What we'd like to have happen
Anyone else seeing this problem? Is this something we have set incorrectly?

I have looked through 3 pages of top ideas here https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public?filter=top&page=1 and haven't found one describing your request. Only one person asked for an ability to login with different accounts at the same time, but that's not what you are asking for. I guess you should post this idea (or search) so people can vote on it and it gets MS attention. I think there might be technical problems to implement this depending on how everything operates in Teams under the hood.

Yeah, but as a partner topic author might be a guest in many orgs, so it will take a few browsers to keep everything open..

This particular uservoice entry is about an ability to login with different Office 365 accounts into single Teams app at the same time. But this topic's author is only using one Office 365 account, which is invited as a guest to a number of other tenants. So, only one account is in play, but in order to chat using this account with other organizations one has to switch to these organizations using the drop down menu at the top of the Teams app. Which is cumbersome. I have also noticed that notifications not always appear automatically for other orgs unless you reboot Teams. Switching between orgs also sometimes takes 5-10 seconds. It would be more convenient to have teams from other organizations appear with some special indicator in the teams list, or maybe there could be a side panel button for Other teams, etc. I suspect this one could be easier to implement than an option to be logged in with a few accounts at once. Also it could be hard for an app to know which account to use when posting a message.
