UX improvement: Organization Settings and Members

By Christophe Dujarric, on Mar 20, 2019

A couple of months ago, we released the Organizations feature. That feature is meant to:

  • make it more intuitive for a group of people to use Blackfire together
  • enable customers to deal with multiple projects/companies/subscriptions (for instance web agencies)

Listing Organization Members

Currently, enabling someone from your team to profile on the same machines than you, start scenarios, and share results require that you add them as a collaborator. Doing so means that you have:

  1. Created an Organization and started a Premium or Enterprise subscription (or free Premium trial)
  2. Created an environment where you can add collaborators, via the environment’s Settings tab

If you own multiple environments, this can be a heavy process, and we’re working on making it easier. The first increment is that you can now see all collaborators who have been added to one of the Organization’s environments, and which environment they have been added to by hovering over their name.

Clarifying “Organization Settings” vs “Personal Settings”

One of the impacts of that evolution was that the previous Personal settings page now has a clone for each Organization you own. The Organization Settings include important information, such as your subscription and billing details.

Finding it required to go to https://blackfire.io/my/organizations, select an Org, then go to its Settings tab, and to “Billing”.

Now, from your Personal Settings page, you can also see on the left side the list of all Organizations you own, so you can faster figure out where their subscription and billing details are standing.

Your feedback on user experience is welcome! Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if there are things you do not understand/do not find user friendly.

Happy profiling,
