Changelog: Join Multiple Organizations

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

You'll now be able to join and belong to multiple organizations! You can check out your settings page to create or join or a new organization. Here's an example of what your settings would look like:

Organization settings page example

Publishing a new post under organizations, as well as posting listings and purchasing credits will also use a similar drop-down pattern.

Under the hood of the app, this change required a big architectural change in how we handle organizations. By setting this new foundation we'll be able to explore adding more interesting features, such as guest posting for an organization.

Let us know if you have any questions or feedback, by leaving a comment, sending us an email, or opening a GitHub issue!

This is my bad for creating a single organization_id field on the user model early on 😄

But yes, now that there is a multi-way relationship we will have much better support for folks who need to be a part of multiple organizations, such as different open source core team memberships, community organizations as well as work orgs, etc.

And each organization membership can have a different associative title, which could come into practice in different contexts on the site. As Andy mentions, you could have a "guest author" or "community member" role within an org, but not be listed as "on the team" in the full sense of organizational membership.

 
 
 

Ohhhh, really cool. I've just seen it and I was waiting for it for a while now hehehe
