Set Working Folder Command (File Menu)

Command Remarks

Sets working folder for the selected project.

This command communicates to Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted where local copies of the files in that project are located, as well as where they should be placed when retrieved from the repository.

A working folder can be set at any level of the project tree hierarchy. If you set a working folder at a project and no working folder specified for its subprojects, the working folders will be automatically inherited in the subprojects. Subprojects may also be individually configured to have a different working folder from that of the parent project.

If a working folder is not set for a project or any of its tree ancestors, then Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted will be unable to determine where the local files of this project are stored. In this case, Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted will prompt you for working folder each time you use a command that requires a working folder.

Access Rights
