This article helps you understand how to start watching a project folder on Asite.

Updated over a week ago

Right click on the project folder and select 'Start Watching' to start keeping a watch of activities performed on the selected project folder. Folders on which you are already keeping a watch will show with an eye icon.

Note - When you start watching a parent folder, all of its sub-folders are included for watching by default. In case you want to avoid this:

a. Right click on the concerned parent folder and select 'Watch > Edit Settings'.

The watch configuration that you set specifically for an individual file will be given precedence over any of the folder level watch configurations in its hierarchy.
