A while back, before Microsoft rolled out the possibility of adding multiple Teams accounts on your computer, I wrote an article about adding multiple Teams accounts on your local installation of teams. Luckily for us, Microsoft understood the need we had for multiple accounts on our computer, too.

That’s why I like to explain how you can now add multiple accounts of Microsoft Teams on your computer. If you want to know how to do this on your phone, I suggest reading my previous article about this topic.

Two Microsoft Teams accounts opened on your computer

In the new version of MS Teams, you’re able to add multiple accounts. Before you can follow the steps below, you need to get the latest version of teams. https://www.microsoft.com/nl-be/microsoft-teams/download-app

I’ll explain in a few steps how to set up a secondary account:

  1. Firstly, you need to sign in to the desktop app with your primary account.

  2. Click in the profile picture/initials in the top right corner.

  3. Select the “Add another account” option and a new login screen will pop up

  4. Sign in with the credentials of the secondary account

Once you have successfully logged in your secondary account, you see that you have two accounts on your Teams screen. If you receive a message on one of the Teams you will be notified.

I hope you have been informed of the changes in the new version of teams, and now you can’t use the excuse anymore that you haven’t seen the message because you were logged in on another account.
