Organizations are collections of users, both end-users and agents (see About groups and organizations). Multiple organizations for users is available on Professional or Enterprise. Organizations are not available on Essential, and users can belong to only one organization on Team.
An administrator must enable multiple organizations for users before you can add users to multiple organizations (see Enabling multiple organizations for user).
Adding and removing multiple organizations for users
You can add a user to multiple organizations, up to as many as 300. You can remove a user from any of their organizations as needed.
When you add a user to an additional organization, that user's already-existing tickets are not affected. However, agents will need to manually select an organization for that user moving forward.
When you remove a user from an organization, if the organization was the user's default organization, a new default organization is selected from the user's remaining organizations. Removing users from organizations affects tickets these ways:
Any non-closed tickets associated with that user and that organization are updated to have no organization. They aren't automatically assigned to another organization. You can add an organization to the associated tickets at any time.
Any closed tickets remain associated with the organization that was set on the ticket when it was closed.
If one of the organizations a user belongs to is deleted, any non-closed tickets associated with the deleted organization are updated to have no organization. If the organization that was deleted was the user's default organization, one of the user's other organizations is promoted to be the default organization.
To add a user to multiple organizations
- Open the profile for the user you want to add to multiple organizations.
- Click Add organization.
- Start typing the name of the organization, then select the organization.
A list of matching organizations appears as you type.
- Click Add organization to add another organization, and repeat as needed.
Your update is saved automatically, so when you are finished you can simply navigate away.
- Open the user's profile.
- Click the name of the organization you want to remove, then select Remove.
- Click Yes, remove it in the confirmation box.
Changing the default organization for a user
When you add a user to multiple organizations, the first organization that you added to the user becomes the user's default organization. If the default organization for a user is deleted, and the user belongs to multiple organizations, one of the other organizations the user belongs will become the default organization.
When an organization is deleted, any non-closed tickets associated with the deleted organization are updated to have no organization. If the organization that was deleted was the requester's default organization, one of the requester's other organizations is promoted to be the default organization.
The default organization is also used in Explore for reporting. You can report on users according to their default organization only.
You can change the default organization for a user at any time.
- In the user's profile, click the name of the organization you want to make the default, then select Make default.
