Pull Request delete branch

On BitBucket when you do a pull request it deletes the branch after everything is merged. How can this be done in SourceTree?

Hi Matt,

We would never delete branches locally, this is generally considered a dangerous operation. For example, you might be working on a branch locally and haven't pushed changes, by deleting it remotely and causing this to cascade locally could mean you lose changes (albeit probably still reachable). We are looking into workflow improvements in the future that could help deal with this process.

Hope that helps
