About your GitHub Copilot usage

You can view usage information for GitHub Copilot in your enterprise, broken down by organization, or in your organization, broken down by seat assignment status. At the enterprise level, this information includes the number of seats assigned in each organization, and the total spending associated with each organization, for the current billing cycle. At the organization level, this information includes the total number of seats, seats carried over from the previous billing cycle, new seats added during the current cycle, and seats to be removed at the end of the current cycle.

If an organization admin has assigned one or more seats partway through the current billing cycle, the enterprise-level information will display a decimal number of seats. For example, if the organization started the billing cycle with 3 seats assigned, and then assigned an additional seat half way through the cycle, the seat usage information will display 3.5 seats. The "3" representing the seats assigned at the start of the cycle, and the "0.5" representing the additional seat assigned halfway through the cycle.

The spending information will display the total spending for each organization for the current billing cycle. The total spending for the organization for the current cycle will usually be the number of seats assigned, multiplied by the cost per seat ($19 per seat per month). However, if the same organization member is assigned a seat in multiple organizations, their seat usage will be reflected in each organization, but as the enterprise will only be charged once, their spending will only be reflected in the organization where they were first assigned a seat.
