Changelog: Join Multiple Organizations

uh oh where'd my bio go!

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.

This is my bad for creating a single organization_id field on the user model early on πŸ˜„

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.

Is there somewhere that documents the organization features? I just created an organization on the platform but not quite sure what to do with it or how to see the organization profile inside the installed PWA front end interface (as I can't navigate directly to the Org url). Is the organization at this point mostly just a way to publish posts linked to that organization? What else can we do with them?

Thanks =)
