Hi everyone,

Is it possible to sign into two accounts within the same organization for Office apps like Word?

A user wants to use both their own account and another account for different purposes and be able to switch between them seamlessly within Office apps, without encountering permission issues.

Any ideas?

    Hi @Aran Billen

    You need to log off from one user account first to sign in with the other user account. Office 365 apps do not support logging in with multiple user accounts from a same Microsoft 365 org or tenant at the same time.

    For more, please refer to "About accounts in Office".
