My company created an organization, and then I created an account and they added me to their organization. However, it still shows me as a free member, and not the paid organization member, and i am unable to fork our project because it says that is a paid feature and free accounts cannot perform that action. what did we do wrong and how do we correct it?
I can’t even get that far. Again, my account is a free account, but i am an admin on an organization, and that org pays $50.00 a month for me to have full access to the project. When I click fork it immediately says free users cannot fork private projects. Either a) it should check to see if i am a member of the organization that owns that project and let me or, even better, b) the system should detect that I am a member of an organization and change my account type from free to organizational member or paid at the very least.
You are a free user and occupying a seat in the ORG.
Although you are an admin on the project, you cannot fork the project because its private and requires the forked project to be private too.
As you are a free user, you cannot fork to your own personal account as free users can’t have private projects.
As you are not an admin or owner of the organisation, you cannot create a new project under the ownership of the ORG account either.
Being an admin of the project only lets you add/remove people from the project and make changes to projects settings.
To resolve this, you can either ask the ORG owner to make you an admin of the ORG (so you can have permissions to create new projects under the ORG) or get an admin of the ORG to fork the project for you.
