    Great news indeed, I am very keen to do this. I don’t have the ‘Apps’ option visible in my Edge settings though?

  2. Thanks, LazyAdmin

    I have tried this on ‘Edge for Mac’ but it switches both Apps to whichever account I am currently logged into. Do you know of a way to prevent this and retain separate tenants in each App?

    Thank you for this. We have been using it successfully. I have a question. our guest has both instances running and can chat and access files; however, if I send the guest a link to a a file via email they are unable to click and open it. If I give them the site/channel/folder path they can find it. What do we have to do to allow a guest to our tenant to open a link?
