Introducing Organizations and Teams

Many authors use GitBook as part of a team (company/university/…) collaboratively authoring books or documentation together. A highly requested feature was to be able structure those teams inside GitBook, this is now possible !

If you’ve ever had to manage multiple GitBook accounts, desired a team-specific dashboard or needed to share multiple books with your team, you’re going to love Organizations.

Organizations with account switcher

A home for your organization’s books

Creating an organization helps you centralize your organization’s books. All books live under the organization, collaborators are managed in a single place and billing goes through a central organization account.

Any owner of an organization may edit that organization’s settings, from profile details to billing information.

Transforming an existing user account into an organization

Quite a few of you had been asking for this feature for a while and had been using workarounds, such as creating a seperate account for the organization, so with that in mind not only is it easy to create new organizations, but you can easily convert old (user) accounts to an organization !

If you want to check out the specifics, you can read through our documentation regarding organizations, it covers everything you need to get started : converting user accounts, transferring ownership, etc …
