Hi there

Im a lone developer using Vault Pro to monitor file changes for all the projects I work on. I have a couple of files that are shared across the different projects I work on.

Project 1
Source Files
Shared Files

Project 2
Source Files
Shared Files

NOTE : Shared Files are the same files ie common shared class libraries.


What is the best way to have these 'shared' files kept in sync. For example Project 1, I check out these shared files. Project 2, i checkout these shared files. Therefore the shared files are checked out twice. However, changes made to the shared files from Project 1 should be reflected in shared files in Project 2 automatically, without having to checkin the files.......

Many thanks

Lee

The share only happens in Vault and on Vault actions. When you check in, then Vault applies the same delta to the share. It can't apply changes automatically to another location on your hard drive.

I can put in a feature request if you'd like.
