Branches Tab

Shows all branches of the selected file. When you modify and check in a file, all branched files will be updated immediately. This box will help you easily find the branched files and modify them.

In above dialog for example, we have "$/ClassLibrary... 1->1". "$/ClassLibrary..." is the branch path, and "1->1" is the branch version. The upper one is for Branch With Out History (Branch). The other one is for Branch With History (Branch Share Links) which requires Share the item first.

For example,

Branch path Branch version
|--$/A    1->5
   |--$/B    5->6
   |--$/C    3->3

This illustrates 3 branches of a file. The first branch has moved from version 1 to version 5. The second branch B has A as its parent, began its life at version 5 and was done an operation such as checked in once since then, moving it to version 6 currently. The third branch C also has A as its parent. It began its life at version 3 and has not changed since then.
