Using Google Chrome persons / profiles


The following tip might be useful for you, if

  • you are using Microsoft Demos or,
  • you are already working with several O365 / D365 tenants or,
  • you need to log-in with different user profiles simultaneously in MSDyn365CE or PowerPlatform to customize and test.

In many cases the private browser / guest user is used or the current user will be logged out, the browser will be closed or the cache will be cleared. But there is an easy way to use several logins, when you can use Google Chrome. In this case you can use different chrome persons (profiles).

To create a new person, click on the person icon in the top right corner and then select “Manage people” and then “Add person”. In the following step you can select an avatar and give the chrome person a specific name e.g. the name of the tenant or the username /role you want to use in this chrome browser.

To switch between the chrome browser instances, you need to click on the person icon in the top right corner and then select the one you want to use. The new person will start in a separate window.

Each chrome person starts a separate browser instance with its own cache, bookmarks, history and extensions.
