What about if you do want to keep ownership of the various intranets?

As an example, I work for Company A, with Company B, and own Company C and Company D. Each has been set up with a Bitrix24 account (instance) for their intranet solution.
So that I am an active user in each of the intranet portals for each of these companies as well as the person who manages all four portals.

The problem is that if I use single sign-on, only one profile is shown across all four portals. If I am collaborating with a vendor in my Company D portal and they click on my profile, it shows the information for my SSO associated profile (Company A):
Quote
MyFirst MyLast
Director of Brand Development
me@companyA.com
which is obviously not correct for that particular interaction. Is there any workaround for this?

I did post a feature request here, which I will remove if a solution already exists.

Single Sign-on Account with multiple User Profiles, For people who work for or with multiple companies in various capacities (i.e. CEO at Company A, Board of Directors at Company B, etc.)
I absolutely [I]want[/I] to love Bitrix24. I feel like it is the best of breed for simple intranet solutions and the collaboration and communication features just keep coming.

What we have found confusing with [URL=https://www.bitrix24.net]Bitrix24[/URL] and what has prevented us from adopting the tool is the way you all handle the concept of [B]ACCOUNTS[/B] vs. [B]PROFILES[/B].

We can’t really understand why it is setup the way it is and find it silly that these are not two separate items in Bitrix24. If a user elects to use the single sign-on feature, the selected sign-on address takes over and your profiles are merged (or perhaps all are deleted save the one associated with the single sign-on?) This means that if you are [I]CEO[/I] of one company and [I]Mailroom Attendant[/I] at another, you can only choose one title/profile to be seen across all company portals to which you belong. An extreme example, but obviously an issue.

We definitely want the single sign-on capability, but there really needs to be ACCOUNTS and PROFILES. Profiles should be connected to a specific Bitrix24 group/company instance. The single sign-on email address would be logically connected to the main personal account that would live above the profiles rather than replacing them.

Ideally, the setup would be something like this:
[LIST=1]
[*]1. A Single Sign-on [B]ACCOUNT[/B] with associated email address or username
[*]2. Separate [B]PROFILES[/B] for each workspace/instance each connected to the SSO account
[LIST]
a. First Bitrix24 Instance — User Profile #1/email address/Job Title
b. Second Bitrix24 Instance — User Profile #2/email address/Job Title
c. Third Bitrix24 Instance — User Profile #3/email address/Job Title
[/LIST]
[/LIST]
This is the only way it makes sense for users who are members of multiple Bitrix24 instances, as each profile is likely to have a unique email address/job description/title/capacity, which relates to that specific Bitrix24 instance/company.

I found this [URL=https://www.bitrix24.com/support/forum/messages/forum31/topic16365/message74657/#message74657]post[/URL] by Yana Prokopets, but it doesn't seem to be the same as what I am referencing. I think this response is meant for designers who set up Bitrix24 instances for multiple clients rather than users who work across multiple companies as employees, advisors, operators, etc.

Am I missing something? Does this set up already exist?
