Issue #8900 closed

Long repository owner names make it very difficult to see the repository list (BB-10054)

Alex Key
created an issue

Our organisation name is long, because the acronym was already taken.


When looking at the list of repositories, the organisation name takes up the viewable space.

We can hover over to see a tooltip, or use the search.

But it would be handy to have an alias (just when viewing our own stuff) so we can shorten the name.

In theory we could choose a shorter name, but we didn't think it would be as much a problem when we signed up. An alias would help.

The repository name is the most important thing to us, maybe the team name should be in a drop down box or something similar?
