Communicating on GitHub Enterprise Cloud

GitHub Enterprise Cloud provides built-in collaborative communication tools, allowing you to interact closely with your community when building great software. For example, you can contribute to another user's project by creating a pull request, or use issues to track bugs or suggest ideas in a repository. You can also brainstorm new ideas with your team with discussions.

For an overview of these tools, see "Quickstart for communicating on GitHub."

Participating in organizations

Organizations are shared accounts where businesses and open-source projects can collaborate across many projects at once. Owners and administrators can establish teams with special permissions, have a public organization profile, and keep track of activity within the organization. For more information, see "About organizations."

From your dashboard, click the drop down menu of your username on the left side of your dashboard. Here, you can view organizations that you are a part of and easily switch between them.
