Simultaneous login and file syncs with more than 1 OneDrive accounts
I’m sure I am far from unique in that I and my family have multiple OneDrive accounts. For example a personal instance, a family instance and child instances. One of the great frustrations is the inability to see multiple locations without the greater inconvenience of logging out and back in. I also believe people would want to sync more than one account to a device (e.g. a personal instance and a family instance).
I am certain that this inability means MSFT looses accounts as it forces folks to have accounts across multiple app’s (e.g. Personal on OneDrive, family on Google or Dropbox or...).
This problem is massively frustrating. Let me give you a working scenario. A person, say me, is logged into my personal M365 account and am using Excel to manage the family budget, do taxes, etc. That person needs to get information to complete that task from the family OneDrive (a separate M365 account instance). On that device they quite simply can’t, because they would need to log out of personal (closing the Excel spreadsheet in the process), log into family account, find the information and somehow send it to themselves, then log out and back in again to their own account, reopen Excel, locate the info they have sent themselves, find a way to copy and paste it in to the spreadsheet, cross check the numbers were correct.... Clearly you can see highly sub-optimal.
Please, please, please solve this!!
