View Pending Changes in Other Workspaces (Team Explorer Everywhere)

You can use Source Control Explorer or the Cross-platform Command-Line Client for Team Foundation Server to view pending changes in other workspaces. By doing this, you can easily determine whether other team members have pending check-ins. For more information about how to view and manage pending changes in your own workspace, see View and Manage All Pending Changes in Your Workspace (Team Explorer Everywhere).

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must have the Read permission set to Allow. For more information, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: Team Foundation Server Permissions.

To view pending changes in other workspaces

  1. Open Source Control Explorer. For more information, see Open Source Control Explorer.

  2. In Source Control Explorer, the Pending Change column identifies all pending changes that are ready to be checked in to Team Foundation version control.

    Pending changes will be reflected in the following ways:

    • If one team member has a pending change, the Pending Change column will indicate the pending change type with the team member’s name or alias in the User column.

    • If two or more team members have pending changes, the name of the first user to have submitted a pending change will appear in the User column together with an ellipses (…). To view a list of users and pending changes, follow these steps:

      1. Right-click the item in the Name column and then click Properties.

      2. In the Properties dialog box, click the Status tab. A list of users appears in the User column and their associated pending changes appear in the Change Type column.

To view pending changes from a command prompt

  1. Open a command prompt.

  2. Navigate to the folder that contains the files or folders for which you want to view pending changes.

  3. At the command prompt, type tf status ItemSpec and press ENTER. Replace ItemSpec with the file or folder for which you want to view pending changes. Omit ItemSpec to view status for all files and folders in the current folder.

    For more information, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: Status Command (Team Foundation Version Control).
