"Toggle" between two separate Trello accounts

Is there a way to "toggle" between two completely separate Trello accounts?  For instance, I have one for Work and one for Personal.  NOT separate boards, but actually separate accounts.  I don't want the two to "talk" to eachother/be linked necessarily.  I just want to be able to do something like click on my work user name at the top right and then select my personal user name to toggle to that trello account. Then be able to go back to my work one WITHOUT having to log out/in or use another tab/browser/incognito tab.
Is it currently possible?

Hello, Emily!

Sadly, this is not currently possible. My best workaround suggestions are to use Chrome profiles to sign into both accounts, or to share the boards you need to access with both accounts, so you can edit your work boards from your personal account and vice versa. Sadly, these are workarounds and not the ideal solution you propose. I would advise you to submit this as a feature request to Trello Staff through this link. It's a great feature idea :)

I wish I had a better answer for you, but I hope you're able to find a solution that works in the interim!

Thank you for your answer and the link for feature suggestions!

@EE Emily Sorensen Did you submit a feature request? If so, could you please edit your original post to reflect this, i.e. with a link or something? :-)

Where is this feature at?  I have this same need, and my work will not allow me to share these boards with my personal account.  It gets old logging out and back in constantly...

Has there been any feedback from atlassian - i'm now on the hunt for a different solution as i use trello everywhere iphone, ipad, windows laptop, mac laptop so being tied to a browser isn't an option for me.  Who knows maybe there are better tools out there....i'd prefer to stay with trello but they aren't giving us much of an option.

btw - i use this for community projects, family projects, friend projects and self projects 

and given i've worked to get companies to use trello it's kind of disappointing that they are essentially locking us out of using it for personal use

@Trello team I need this in my life. PLEASE.

+1 for this!!! ... it should be possible to switch between two accounts on the trello app to clearly separate between private and work or between two companies i am using trello with. thanks!!!

We need this feature, please

If you use google gmail to sign in and your work uses Gsuit, I found this workaround helpful. When you logout, use google signin and there you have auto switch.

I would recommend Firefox Containers, enabled by installing Mozilla's official Multi-Account Containers extension, then you can log in to different accounts in different tabs.

 

This is not the same as Chrome's profiles, I much prefer Containers. Here are the differences:

 

  • You can assign different tabs to be in different Firefox's containers, whereas Chrome's profiles have to have separate windows.
  • Both containers and profiles do not share cookies, allowing to log in to websites using separate accounts. However, containers do share browser settings, history, autocomplete, and a bunch of settings like that, whereas profiles have a complete different set of settings.
  • You can set a website to automatically open in a certain container. There is no equivalent feature for Chrome's profiles.
  • If you open a web page in the wrong container, you can right-click on the tab header, and click "re-open in container". I don't think Chrome's profiles has a similar feature.

Excellent suggestion - thanks!

Seriously Trello ? No feedback from the dev team ? I mean Slack has this exact feature !!

+1 Bump

Would really love to keep using the Trello desktop and mobile apps, but lack of easy account switching is a big pain point

A great request!

News from Atlassion? I also need this features.

This would be an amazing feature!!!

+1 for this!  Much needed feature!

+1 again for this

Slack does this in a great way. I can toggle between work and private slack (different account with different emails) by simple click. Or even better, I keep company slack in one browser tab, and private slack in another browser tab. Both work perfectly, including notification from both tabs at the same time, regardless of currently selected tab.

The G suite apps all have this feature - since, just like Trello, you often want to use them in both work and non-work contexts.

I hope the fact that Trello is now part of Atlassian doesn’t mean this feature request is going to sit here for years not worked on because product managers have shinier things they want to deliver.

Some features are shiny. Some are simply table stakes for pervasive productivity apps. This is very much in the table stakes category.

+ 1 for this! I need it so much ;) 

+1. Please add this feature. :)

I manage 4 different Trello accounts for client and this would be an amazing benefit instead of having to log in and out all the time.  They are logged in via different servers, so a toggle is seriously needed.

+1 from me as well.  One personal account & one work account.  If I can find the official feature request, I'll go vote and share that link here.

Might have to just send an email, but there are some boards that might show us if it's on the roadmap:
