"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!

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

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.

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