I like Teams. However, I am a consultant, and member of Teams in a major client corporation. Now I am considering Teams for other venues, such as other clients, or clubs, etc. I am concerned that all the Teams seems to access each other. Is there no way to have separate environments, so that no member of one environment's teams can possibly access a team in a different environment? If there is a way to create this separation, how can I do it?

Hello @ericmca1735 A tenant is another name for a unique organization so it's not about having a server. If you work from home, you can still be a member of your employer's tenant, for example. Client A would have its own tenant, Client B its own, etc. There is a ton of resource material online but you can start with this: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/what-is-a-tenant/
Hope this gets you started in the right direction....

Hello, @ThereseSolimeno !
Thank you very much -- this indeed did get me started in the right direction, and helped me figure out "tenants". I really appreciate it!
I am still wondering how the connections are saved. I use the Chrome browser usually, and have accessed a client's TEAMS using that. Now, when I try to log in as a different tenant, I always get directed to that client and cannot go elsewhere. Whereas, if I use a different browser (Edge), I can log in to my own TEAMS and don't see the client. Is there someway to break the connection on the browsers so I could use one browser for either (separate) tenant?
I don't mean to push you into more work, I appreciate your answer fully! Just ignore this griping unless there is a really easy obvious and short-winded solution !

Hi @ericmca1735 I'm not exactly sure of the issue but I've heard of a couple things to try:
1. Log out of each tenant and log back each time you want to make the switch
2. Use an in-private browser
Let's see if @adam deltinger or anyone in the community have suggestions - they are much more knowledgeable about these things than I am!

@ericmca1735 Hi! Easiest way is to use profiles in the browser! In chrome for example, create different profiles for each guest tenant you are a member of. These are isolated environments and you can save credentials for each which makes it really easy to quickly open up a guest tenant or have multiple opened at any given time. There’s also other solutions and even softwares that can help you here. I believe one is called Franz. Do a Bing search ;)
