Creating and managing organizations

We recommend creating an organization for any apps with multiple collaborators to better manage users and their permissions.

Organization roles

These are the three roles within an organization and the actions each can take:

Roles Create App See all apps Manage settings Add people Manage Shared Distribution Groups and Teams
Admins Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Collaborators Yes Only if you belong No No Yes
Members Yes Only if you belong No No No
  • Admins are Managers of all the apps in the organization. Learn more about app permissions.

  • When someone gets added to an app owned by an organization, they get invited as Members of the organization.

Creating an organization

To create an organization, log in and click the Add new dropdown and choose Add new organization.

Note

When you create an organization, you automatically become an 'Admin'.

Uploading an organization icon

Customize your organization by uploading an org icon:

  1. On the left side navigation, select the organization
  2. Select the Manage tab
  3. On the right side of the screen, click the placeholder org icon
  4. Select an image file no larger than 512px and does not exceed 1 MB

How to upload org icon

Accessing organizations

All of your organizations are accessible in the left navigation.

Adding users to an organization

There are two ways to add users to an organization:

Directly to the organization:

  1. On the left side navigation, select the organization
  2. Select People
  3. Type the user's email address to add the user

This gives the user access to the organization as a collaborator. However, they will not see any of the apps listed in the organization unless they are explicitly invited to the app or if they are an admin of the organization.

In-directly through an app:

  1. Select an app within an organization
  2. On the left side navigation, select the Settings page
  3. Select People
  4. Type the user's email address to add the user

Adding a user from outside the organization to an app automatically adds them to the organization. However, the user will only see the app(s) they were invited to.

Changing users' organization roles

  1. On the left side navigation, select the organization
  2. Select People
  3. Select the user
  4. Use the dropdown to re-assign the role

Only 'Admins' can change the role of collaborators and other admins.

Removing users from an organization

  1. On the left side navigation, select the organization
  2. Select People
  3. Select the collaborator
  4. Click Remove from organization

Removing a collaborator from an organization will remove the user from all apps within the organization.

Leaving an organization

  1. Click on the App Center user menu in the upper-right corner of any page
  2. Select Account Settings
  3. Select Organizations
  4. Click the Leave button by the organization you would like to leave

Note

If you are the sole 'Admin' of an organization, you cannot leave the organization. You can either promote another collaborator to 'Admin' or delete the entire organization.

Deleting an organization

  1. On the left side navigation, select the organization
  2. Select Manage
  3. On the upper right hand side, click the Delete Organization button

Note

Only organization 'Admins' can delete organizations.
