I believe I found a solution for this scenario. If you edit "$APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\desktop-config.json" and set preventUpnDetectSso to true it will prompt for credentials when switching tenants.
You do need to enter your creds once per tenant, which is a little annoying considering they should all use the same creds, but so far it looks like it remembers them between launches. So once you've gone through all of your guest tenants and entered your creds, switching between them is pretty smooth from there.

I have a work email that has been configured on my outlook, whereas, the email id used for my office 365 account is different, I don't know why my organisation did it, but, this is a problem while integrating outlook with Microsoft Teams and i need this badly and this is the only reason that we are not using Microsoft Teams in our organisation.
08-05-2019 04:12 AM
@Sagar_Kalasa not sure what sort of assistance you're looking for, but here's an article with some arguments for user principal name being the same as your primary email address:
08-05-2019 06:51 PM
the only way it works for me is to sing into Team Office365 portal. Even when I signed in to the Desktop team, Outlook picks up the last logged account (for new Team meetings).
It is annoying.
08-08-2019 06:25 AM
@Brian Mair I tried your solution, but it seems i require an exchange server in order to configure email, which i do not have in my organisation. My organisation emails are from 1and1.com, whereas my office 365 account has its own id. So not sure how to go ahead with this.
11-04-2019 03:04 PM
@Roberto FrancoI believe there must be a way to do this. I am on a Teams TAP team and I am able to toggle back and forth between our tenant and Microsoft's using a drop down selection next to my profile photo in Teams.
11-28-2019 05:45 AM
We have teams for internal use and some of our customers invited us as guest to their teams.
I first logged into teams with our o365-account and could accept the guest invitation to the external team. Now I have the ability to chose between the two accounts without need type in login credentials each time.
Some colleagues started with the external teams account. When we now create new internal teams. those colleagues get invitation mails, but when clicking on the link, teams won't open the new workspace and stays with its guest account.
any idea anyone?
12-28-2019 04:44 PM
Yes, there seems to be some confusion about this requirement. For me, I have two separate O365 tenant accounts and I want to be able to toggle easily between the two in the desktop app, just like I can in the Android app. I don't have or need external or guest access from either of the accounts to the other.
When will this functionality become available in the desktop app please?

@Roberto Franco Asana also has a great approach to address this issue. First it allows you to merge all your accounts which are associated with different email addresses. At the same time it allows you to switch from organizations easily.
I have found the following to be super useful:
- In my kind of work (consulting/freelance) I can be representing several clients and have email addresses with their domain names which used to create respective Teams accounts. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com. By merging all other accounts created with each of the different email address, it becomes possible to access all of my accounts with any of the email addresses i have signup with.
Organization Switching feature:
- After accessing my (merged) account, regardless of which of the associated emails I used, I can easily switch from one organization to another by choosing from a readily available list (client 1, client 2, client 3, mydomain). While this list is readily reachable by going to your account avatar / profile picture in Asana, switching organization is even more readily accessible in Slack with the list conveniently located on the side of the screen.
I have not tried it but apparently the Franz 5 application provides an acceptable temporary workaround to login to multiple Teams accounts simultaneously.
It would be great if Teams would develop the necessary features to meet my needs described above (fingers crossed)

I have the problem that my english is not the best, sorry for that in the first.
Right I want to add a channel or team to my team account (relatively new) where I was invited as a guest

Hello, thanks at first.
I probably put it wrong. I'll try that again.
I would like to integrate a channel in my one teams into which I have guest access.
Unfortunately I have set up a guest account, so a second team account.
Can I use two accounts in the desktop APP?
Or should the customer invite me with my real team account?
Thanks in advance for your support greetings
01-16-2020 03:02 AM
You can only log into the Teams with "one" account at a time only. You can't be logged into both at the same time. Each time you want to use, you must log out (and not just close the app), then log in as a different user.
Same goes for the online MS O365 accounts.
If this was what you are asking.
01-16-2020 03:06 AM
@Consult1344 thanks, but this is exactly the behaviour we want changed in desktop and online. Switching between accounts in the Mobile app is easy, without needing to logout and in each time.
01-20-2020 04:38 AM
I have this issue, and frankly it's forcing me to consider going with Slack. I have a similar issue with Planner.
01-20-2020 06:08 AM
I have already correctly determined that. On the cell phone, this works with two accounts.
f I have been invited by a customer as a guest, can I not include this in my teams?
01-20-2020 06:47 AM
That's great, but I have (including myself) users that use the desktop version. I don't see an easy way to switch accounts (may be user error, but don't see it). @Gipscomm-Energie
02-04-2020 12:10 AM
@NashParrot I'm not sure when it was activated, but I can now see in the desktop app the drop down list of other tenants for which I have an O365 account. However, when I try and access another one, I just get the rotating circle. Access to this other tenant is available in the Android app and also in a browser, however I noticed the drop-down does not appear in the browser.
So i t looks like roll-out of this functionality has commenced, but is not yet finalised.
02-05-2020 12:06 AM
@Andreas Kramer Unfortunately you do not receive notifications from the one when the other is active.
Think it is time to move to something more user friendly like Slack with a dev team that actually gives a ...
02-06-2020 03:07 AM
The issue remains that you do not receive notifications from the other organisation until you switch.
So you have to switch all the time to check.
A real ball-ache but certain that miscrosnot won't get back if they haven't done so for the duration of this thread.
02-20-2020 04:19 AM
Same here. Need login/logout regularly to see my messages, and i'm missing calls from time to time when i switch to another tenant. File sharing also becomes a nightmare.
Also a big compliance problem as there's no way to control which files are out on the other tenants.
Rather surprising in the era of Whatsapp and co where i can chat with anyone...
02-20-2020 04:22 AM
Well that's switching still, isn't it? i think the point is to avoid switching and to be able to access all conversations, calls and files seamlessly.
Or did i get the note wrong?
02-20-2020 07:48 AM
@Izakvdm so terrible. Microsoft wants you to think they are agile, same old waterfall as before. Must be a lot of tech debt preventing this (relatively simple) functionality.
03-04-2020 04:59 PM
Keep voting for this! This is such a key feature and once we got an official response the votes stopped and is out ranked by dark mode and emojis. While those are nice, Teams is impossible to actually use with multiple customers.
03-23-2020 05:09 AM
03-23-2020 08:18 AM
They offer this on the mobile app. Why would they not allow it on a desktop. Dumb!
03-23-2020 06:26 PM
@SigmaDX_JHwhen you say "clicking on the Teams Admin portal Icon just takes me to Teams in my own tenancy", this is obviously a bug. Have you raised a support ticket with Microsoft? This can't be by design.
03-24-2020 12:40 AM
Hi @Brian Mair ,
Yes, I have indeed logged a ticket with Microsoft, and their response so far was:
"... this is by design. There are limitations for security and compliance reasons."
As usual, I believe the first line support agent assigned to the case has probably not understood correctly, and I am currently awaiting a call back to discuss further.
On another note - I will make a correction to my earlier post - the Windows 10 Teams App does indeed have a "Tenancy Switcher" - but I had to manually download and install the latest version of the App again - I would have thought it would have automatically updated, just like the rest of Microsoft's suite - it happens often enough!
03-28-2020 04:14 AM
I don't know why, but my account allows multi-user.
All I did is logoff, logon while follow a teams invitation.
To switch is a matter of 2 seconds.
Windows 10 Pro, build 1909
03-28-2020 04:44 AM
@Rocky_Motard This is not multiple accounts. This is a list of all organizations you have been invited to join as a member. You're still using a single account in Teams.
03-28-2020 04:59 AM - edited 03-28-2020 05:33 AM
I use organisation 1 with my enterprise account, organisation 2 with my private account. 2 seconds to switch organisation and user, no logout oder logon.
03-28-2020 05:24 AM
All my users are - like in the other 365 apps - managed within the app - within Teams. I could change the accounts in Word or Excel and I could it in Teams by choosing the organisation.
First I had my Teams installed with a private account. Later I got an invitation from my enterprise (Not for my private account!) and had the first time to logout my private account. After a restart of Teams I had both accounts to choose and choosing the organisation changes the user and the possibilities of Teams: Private I don't have "tasks", with the enterprise account they are integrated.
03-28-2020 02:10 PM
I would love to see this feature, my company uses Teams as well as my University. Loggin on and off all the time is a major pain.
04-02-2020 01:29 AM
@Roberto Franco This is incredible. You have asked this in 2016, and in 2020, I am still wondering when we could see all Teams we have been added to, at once, without having to switch between organisations.
04-06-2020 07:50 AM
Hi, where do you get the Version for Teams App ?
I can only find Version beginning with 1.3....
04-07-2020 02:12 PM
So in my situation I have my own office365 for my company. i have guest account access to a clients teams and those 2 work together fine on the desktop.
However I also volunteer for the British Red Cross & St Johns Ambulance and each of those charities gives me an office 365 login and both use teams.
So i need to be able to seamlessly switch between my work setup and the charity setup without having to keep logging in and logging out all the team just as i can seamlessly switch on my ipad or iphone.
04-17-2020 01:09 AM
I am need of a similar requirement, as we work on major projects across multiple delivery areas and can include over 15 organisations providing critical input.
We have found a band aid solution by creating a meeting, adding participants we need to connect with.
Although the voice meeting ends, the chat and file sharing capability remain open.
Pinning the conversation in our Chat section has helped, however the call options will open the entire chat history for those we only want to add for short term works.
I echo the need for linked accounts, as I am missing calls from contractors and external stakeholders.

Not sure if anyone got a chance to go through thr article. Please refer the below article which can help you in acheiving the goal of using different accounts on Microsoft Application on the Windows Machine.
May be this might be not an ideal solution but we can use the same as an alternative till Microsoft Delviers the Solution Officially.
