What timestamp is used when working offline?

Post by popezilla » Fri Feb 18, 2005 9:12 am

Here is the scenario:

- 2/2/05 Tell the VS IDE to work offline
- 2/2/05 Add a file to the project
- 2/17/05 Bring the VS IDE online which will update Vault with my offline changes.

What datetime should I see in FILE1's history for the time it was created? 2/2 or 2/17?

File history is always the checkin date, so you would see 2/17. However, when you do a Get Latest, you can choose checkin datetime, modification datetime, or current datetime. The server stores both the server checkin datetime and the file modification time as reported by the client.
