How can we improve the tenant admin features O365?

user account switching

Right now if you want to switch betweeen two accounts you must log all the way out, close the browser, then re-login with the other credentials. There should be a switch user menu to allow context switching between user accounts. This is especially usefull for admins to switch between their personal user account, their admin account with privileges and test accounts.

    This is made worse by the fact that it doesn't log out cleanly. I can log out of an account, log into the next one, and check email in the next one. But when I click on admin, it brings me back into the one I was in previously, which is a totally separate domain account event. Seems like this would be a security issue also as it doesn't seem to really close out the session when you tell it to log out.

    This is an area that this system lags behind GMail.

    OMG!! PLEASE! The feature to add multiple O365 accounts in Outlook works fine, why wouldn't Microsoft build this into all areas of Office 365?!? Working with multiple O365 accounts is so absolutely PAINFULL!!!
    ESPECIALLY now with the mind-blowing rollout of TEAMS. Once you "upgrade" one account to use Teams instead of Skype for Business, you can't go back to using Skype on your OTHER accounts!

    What the...?!?

    Given the number of people asking about this online, and the number of help pages explaining to use private browsing sessions, I'm amazed this only has 3 votes at this moment...
