How does organisation membership work?

Organisation membership includes three roles:

  • Administrators can add, edit and delete datasets belonging to the organisation and accept or refuse new member requests.
  • Editors can add, edit and delete datasets belonging to the organisation but cannot manage membership.
  • Members can view the organisation’s private datasets, but cannot add new datasets or manage membership.

The user who requests the creation of an organisation is assigned an administrator role. That person can invite other HDX users into their organisation and assign them one of the three roles above, or registered users on HDX can request membership from the organisation’s administrator(s).
