MS Teams for Linux crashes when changing from main tenant to "guest" tenant

PhRxmD 36 Reputation points

I'm using the Linux client from an RPM package. My Teams account is registered in my own O365 account as the "main" tenant/organization, and in a few other organizations as a "guest". By default, Teams starts up in my "main" organization/account.

When I click my organization's name in the title bar, I get a menu where I can choose the other organizations where I am registered as a guest. When I click one of those organizations, I'm taken to their login screen. I log in, then I am taken to their Teams instance. After a split second I am kicked out again and returned to my "main" organization.

Is there a way to log into secondary organizations as a "guest" at all at the moment?

Is there a way to select the organization/tenant into which Teams logs in on startup (e.g. by a command line switch)

This problem has been around since the previous version of Teams, which was released in March. Is this ever going to get fixed, or should we conlude that Teams for Linux development has stopped and that we should move on?
