Support enrolling a device under MDM for two different organizations
Contractors/Service Provider employees generally have multiple companies they work for. One the company that pays their salary, another the company that they do the work for (clients). Intune currently do not allow enrolling a device with both the companies MDM. The user need to sign out of one MDM to enroll in another and this is a painful process. Should have a easier way to enroll the device under multiple MDM
Limiting each device to one MDM instance is frustrating, we are an organisation that frequently undertakes work with large user estate within a Joint Venture set up. Currently, we are having to issue separate hardware for the JV to use because the smart device estate has been issued with JV PARTNER A apple DEP and MDM deployed from source. These devices need to connect to JV PARTNER B in order to connect to the JV Email System. The only way to achieve this is by removing JV PARTNER A's MDM and replace it with JV PARTNER B's MDM. This is disallowed by JV PARTNER A as this is against their Cyber Essentials+ Policy. So the only solution is to provide all users with new smartphones. When will this be addressed???

This is a huge issue for us in the healthcare industry. Our hospital system (who is not our employer) requires InTune MDM for access to their e-mail, forcing our physicians to choose between their e-mail and our own organizational O365 e-mail. Please prioritize this.
Not just companies and contract staff - also many joint venture organisations where staff need to access JV systems and parent organisations...

This needs a bump up. Multiple account from same org is ahead in votes and I can not guess why that is more important than this?

Yes, we need a easier way to enroll the device under multiple MDM, this is no good design to limit only one MDM.
I'm coming across this more and more. It's now quite common for people to need to connect to multiple companies' accounts. I personally have the requirement. A lot of my customer have the same, for example directors of multiple companies, or those people that sit on charity boards etc.
I understand the difficulties in having a full device managed by MDM. As such it wouldn't be so bad if MAM applications supported multiple accounts, e.g. Outlook for iOS/Android and Teams. At least that way there would be a workable solution.
I also need to do this, what are our options
I agree that something like this would be quite advantageous. I even have staff who work for two firms both using Office 365 where they have to make a decision about which firm to get emails from.
Has there been any change in this?
I need to set users with multiple email accounts up on the Intune Company Portal and can't see a way to do it.
