Suggestion: Mesh should leverage Linked Live IDs RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I raised a suggestion about a year ago for Mesh to leverage Linked Live IDs. I've heard virtually diddly-squat about it since so thought I'd post this thread to give it some visibility now that more people are using Mesh.

    Linked Live IDs allow us to easily switch between those different Live IDs when using the various WIndows Live services - its a really cool feature (go to https://account.live.com/ManageLinks.aspx to check it out). I'd like Mesh to leverage this as well; i.e. When I'm on the Live desktop I'd lie the option to switch to the Live Desktop of one of my linked accounts without having to log out and back in again which I do currently.

    So, please build in the ability to leverage Linked Live IDs in Mesh!

  • I'd like to see linked accounts work in more places as well.  I originally set my work and play Live IDs to be linked because I wanted to use my play Mesh account on my work laptop, but I needed access to MSDN using my work Live ID (this failed BTW.  MSDN doesn't have the dropdown to switch Live accounts.)
