If your development tool does not support integration of Team Coherence, Version Manager can be used directly to maintain archived files.
To access Version Manager, use the link under the Windows Start menu or, if your development tool supports it, select Workgroups/Team Coherence from the IDE menu:
The main Version Manager window is split into five areas. The actual contents of these areas may vary based on the current selection.
1) Main Menu / Toolbar
The main menu and toolbar give full access to the features of Team Coherence. Some menu options are dependent on the current selection, and the Action menu is also available as a context menu when right-clicking in some of the other windows.
2) Folder Pane
The Folder Pane is used to display the Projects and Folders contained in a Repository. In addition, it gives access to the Locked Files object and, if you are an Admin user, access to the Recycle Bin. Right-clicking on any object in this pane will display a context menu based on the current selection.
Selecting an object in this pane will cause the Files Pane to update based on this selection.
3) Files Pane
The Files pane displays the list of objects directly contained by the object selected in the Folder Pane. Depending on the current selection, this is normally a list of the files and folders contained within this object. Right-clicking on any object in this pane will display a context menu based on the current selection.
Selecting an object, or multiple objects, in this pane will cause the Detail and Information panes to update based on this selection.
4) Detail Pane
The detail pane displays details for the currently selected object in the Folder or File pane, depending on which is currently active. It contains a number of pages based on the current selection and may contain pages created by addin applications. Dependent on the selection, the pages include:
|·||Notes - The notes page allows HTML or notes to be attached to the selected object.
|·||Revisions - If the current selection is a file, the revisions contained by that file will be listed.
|·||New Files - If the current selection is a folder, this page will list any files or folders in the local directory associated with that folder that have not yet been archived.
|·||Issues - If you have installed the TC Tracker addin, any issues associated with the currently selected files will be displayed in this pane.
5) Information Pane
The contents of the Information Pane are based on the current selection in any of the other panes. It gives more details about the currently selected object(s) and also, dependent on the object, provides shortcut links to some of the most common Version Control actions.
