Hi, I am quite new to SourceTree that I use to manage my code using Bitbucket.
I believe I understand the behaviour of commiting, pushing, and so on. But when I commit a change to my code using SourceTree, (and I don't push it), I see that it is automatically pushed to the remote server a few seconds after.
Is there an advantage for that ? I thought that commiting and pushing were separated to allow the user to work locally and modifying the remote server less frequently.
I think it is a better practice to do so, and therefore would like to disable the automatic push after commit, except if you convince me of doing the opposite :) (no, I did not check the box next to the commit field to ask for automatic push).
Thank you for your attention and have a good day.
In the answer above, I mention the exact text of the only option relating to this. It is in the "General" tab of the options dialog (at least, it is on Windows). In my experience, this setting is not absolute. I think when it is off that the application sometimes remembers whether it was checked in a previous commit. If behavior is not consistent, you can search for or submit a bug at jira.atlassian.com
I also frequently run into this issue - I have unchecked the box in the options menu as well as in the commit dialog, but for some reason it becomes re-checked in the commit dialog from time to time. Luckily I have only been making commits on non-master branches, but this means I have to keep deleting branches from the online repo that should not be there in the first place. It would be really helpful to be able to remove that (expletive) checkbox entirely from the commit dialog. I don't ever want to auto-push, and I don't want the option right there to be accidentally or automatically ticked randomly while I am working.
Another quick point: clicking anywhere along the ENTIRE bottom pane between the 'Push changes immediately' checkbox and the 'Commit' button toggles the checkbox, making it extremely easy for users to tick it by accident and not even realize it, because they are trying to click on the commit button.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
