It would be nice to have a business account feature to allow switching from personal accounts to business accounts.

why not just create another account and call it a business account?
1. That'll allow abuse of the feedback and reaction system.
2. That's inefficient when wanting to switch accounts.
3. It'll clog up the forums.

@Ethereal739 From previous experience I'd recommend the Sub-accounts xF2 plugin. It works well, and afaik has the same features as ones on MCM and VM.

Hi Josh - thanks for the feedback. We're currently working on rules and will likely ask that people contact a specific member of staff (most likely me) if they want to have both a personal and business account, that way we can hold a "database" of sorts on who represents what. It's probably our best option in the short term without adding more addons/plugins to the forum software.

That being said, we'll look into the addon you suggested and update you when we make a decision.

Can you give me a link to it? So far I have only seen that plugin for XF1.

Shoot, I thought TH did a xF2 one as well. :(
I think I will look for ways to work around the business account. What if we can make a thread with a company logo and share the thread ownership with another user?

I will look into ways to implement an alternative to the business account later on. If you happen to have an addon that can do this, please open a new thread. For now, I am marking this as denied since there is currently no way to implement it.

Just giving you an update ;)

We have found a way to implement this and added it to our forums!
