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.

Hey guys, one of my teammate figured out a really good way to solve this issue:
1. login to your first account at the teams app
2. start Microsoft edge, open teams there and login there with your second account
3. klick at the 3 setting points -> Apps -> Install this site as an app

this would be so helpful for all students who work at the same time!
as well as many companies whose workers use teams for private use as well.
so nearly every teams user.

Adding my voice to this one, there is some kind of functionality in Azure for admins and switching accounts but M365 resources need this badly. Switching between accounts is a royal pain in the rump.

I need this to happen. Using an InPrivate browser window for work and regular for personal is no fun.

Microsoft should be able to easily beat the google suite with 365. However, Google has made it so easy to work on multiple accounts at the same time. We need this to be fixed!
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!

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...
