I am new to Visualstudio.com and am moving projects up to the site.  I am contractor and have multiple projects for multiple clients.  what is the best way to set up the repository to support this?  I started simply adding a new project for each project I am uploading but am uncertain if  should be somehow grouping projects by each of my customers.

Also I occasionally get an error when adding a project to source control that it Failed to Create Mapping "cannot map server path $/proj/proj, because it is not rooted beneath a team project"  What does this mean I am doing wrong?

indrajitmahajan - thank you.  Is there a way to group them such that any new projects added are shared to any team members I have shared the original project with?
