Tips and Tricks
Examples and Tutorials
In our video tutorials you can see Visual Studio SourceShare in action.
Basic edition features.
This tutorial demonstrates the basics of Visual Studio SourceShare. You will learn how to link projects and what happens when you add, delete or rename a linked file. You will also get a basic idea of how to use exclusion rules to exclude some files from synchronization.
2. Exclusion rules.
In this tutorial you will learn the concept of exclusion rules in SourceShare and how they can help you. You will learn how to define and edit exclusion rules. This tutorial uses the Basic edition of SourceShare but also mentions some of the Professional edition features.
Professional edition features.
1. Linking from/to a subfolder of a project.
In this tutorial you will learn how to link from a project subfolder or how to link to a project subfolder. You will learn how this can help you to better organize your code.
2. Advanced synchronization types.
This tutorial gives an example of the great "Move to source, then link" synchronization feature. This type of synchronization allows you to create new files directly in the target project and have them automatically moved to the source project, then linked back in the target project. This removes the need to have the source project opened when you work with the target project and you want to add files.
Another synchronization type, the “Two-way” type is also explained here.
3. Convenient context menus.
This tutorial gives an example of the convenient context menus available in the Professional edition of Visual Studio SourceShare. Learning to use those menus will help you get more efficient and will give you the ability to work with the source project by issuing commands on the target project. This allows you to have only the target project opened.
