A Master Organization is an organization with Premium or Enterprise subscription. Instead of paying for every member per organization as in Quire subscription policy, with a Master Organization, you can now pay only once for the shared members across different organizations.

You can make an organization a Master Organization by linking other free organizations to that paid organization in order to share the same usage quota and the members with the Master Organization.

Note: Only a Free organization can be linked to a Master organization, which is a Premium or Enterprise organization.

For example, if Organization A was subscribed to Premium subscription plan, you can link Organization E, which partially shares the same team members to Organization A. This way, the usage quota of Organization E will be counted toward the total usage quota of Organization A.

Therefore, billing-wise you will only be billed once for a final invoiced amount of Organization A’s total usage quota. So in the invoice of Organization A, you will be billed with 7 members in total.

Once you have upgraded an organization to the Premium or Enterprise plan, the Master Organization feature will automatically be enabled for that organization. You can immediately start linking your other Free organizations to the Premium or Enterprise organization without any extra settings.

Only Master Organization Admins can link and unlink other Free organizations to a Master Organization.


  • If you are a project or organization member, you will be able to link and unlink a Free organization to a Master Organization if you are the Admin at the Master Organization.
  • Only organizations with either Premium or Enterprise subscription plans can be used as a Master Organization.
  • Only organizations with a Free subscription plan can be linked to a Master Organization.

Master Organization Permission

Once you have linked a Free organization to a Premium organization, the Premium organization will turn into a Master Organization by default.

You may then create a new permission role for the Premium organization and grant Master Access and Global Access permissions to that role. This way, members assigned with this newly created role will be able to access all the organizations and projects linked to your Master Organization.

Below chart describes what the user can access with different permission granted:
