Microsoft Teams is an amazing tool that increases teamwork efficiency due to chat integration, video conference option, Skype calls, file sharing, and much more.
With Microsoft Teams you have so many features that there is no need to ever use another tool.
Moreover, if there are multiple organizations you work with or you simply want to have more than one account added, now there are some workarounds that will allow you to do that.
There’s an easier way to handle all accounts, and in this article, we will explore exactly this, so keep reading.
How do I add multiple accounts to Microsoft Teams?
1.Use different browsers
Because at the moment is not possible to add multiple accounts directly in Microsoft Teams, you can still have different instances of the app open whilst logged in with different accounts.
If for example you have two Microsoft accounts, and you want to have for each a Microsoft Team log in, then you can use different browsers.
Unfortunately, you cannot log in to Microsoft Teams with different accounts while using the same browser. Therefore, you can simply login in using Chrome for one account and Opera for the other account.
2. Use Teams mobile app
Another workaround would be to use Microsoft Teams from your Android phone. Here you will be able to easily add more than one account.
That means that you can easily switch between different accounts on your phone and participate in the conversations without having to constantly log in and log off.
Of course, you can simultaneously use the Windows app while using the mobile app. Finding the best solution that will respond to your needs could take some testing but in the end, we are sure you’ll get there.
3. Use a third-party software
Another option for having multiple accounts in Microsoft Team is to use a dedicated tool that will allow you to switch between accounts and other apps easily.
One such tool is Franz, a versatile tool that will allow you to navigate through multiple accounts and workflows.
The app is fairly easy to use but do keep in mind that this tool will not allow you to access other Office 365 apps at the same time.
If you are only using Microsoft Teams, then Franz can be a really great option. The app supports a variety of messaging services, such as Slack, WhatsApp, WeChat, Messenger, Telegram, Google Hangouts, Skype, Zendesk, etc.
With the Franz Workspaces features, you will only get notifications from your work-related accounts so no need to worry about lost time on distractions.
With this, we can conclude our list of workarounds. As you can see there are several easy steps you can make in order to add multiple accounts in Microsoft Teams.
It does seem that the Engineering Team from Microsoft is working hard on integrating this functionality into the app and hopefully, it won’t be long until it will be released.
