Git doesn't show other user's pending changes?

Postby wscarthy on Wed Jul 27, 2022 9:22 am

I am working on a project with another writer, and we previously used TFS source control. With TFS the Pending Changes tab would show all of the items we both had checked out, which was nice to avoid conflicts.

We recently switched to Git source control, and I noticed that the Pending Changes tab only shows my changes. Is there any way to get Git source control to show both of our changes?

Welcome to the forums! :)

I could be wrong, but I don't think there is. You each have a local Git repo on your machines, and Flare gathers the pending changes against that repo. It's only when you each pull & push or each synchronize that you'll get each other's changes, and there may be conflicts if you both touched the same parts of the same files.
