Organizations are used to share Projects amongst organization members.

There are two roles within a Gitpod organization organization owners and organization members. Organization members and owners can view branches and prebuilds for the projects within an organization. Organization members can open new workspaces directly from a branch in the dashboard. Organization owners can manage other organization members, reset user invite URLs, and manage Organization billing.

To collaborate with others on projects you can create a Organization and invite others as organization members.
