People and Teams

To start managing your organization, you will first need to start adding people to it.

When you’re part of the owners team on an organization, you’re allowed to access the settings page. You can reach that page via the organizations' profile page. The manage buttons on that page will only be visible for team members on the owners team.

People

Managing members happens in the people section of your organization’s settings page.

There are two ways of adding people to an organization, by their username or invite people to an organization via email.

Add by username

Start by clicking on the add user button and select by username. In the modal that appears next, you can add new users. Newly added users are immediately visible on the user's list, and you can immediately start adding them to teams or change the visibility of their membership.

Add by email

Adding by email is particularly handy when inviting users who are not yet on the platform or who you don't know the username on the platform. The drawback is that you can only add the users to teams when they've accepted the invitation.

Responding to an invitation

In the email, there's a `join [organization]` button you need to click. It will bring you to the invite details page.

By clicking accept here, you join the organization. People who are in the owner's team in the organization will receive an email notifying them that you've accepted the organization (unless they've explicitly turned off all email notifications). 

You can decline an invitation without needing to log in

Managing users

After adding a user to the organization (or after a user has accepted an invitation), you can set the visibility of their membership as either public or private. That enables you to hide certain people from the organization’s public profile.

Teams

Managing teams happens in the team's tab of your organization’s settings page.

When you create a new team called frontend for example, you can start adding team members.
