Usually you would host one instance of Stash and grant all of your developers read and write access to some projects and repositories hosted on it. Developers would then download and install SourceTree on to their development machines themselves and use it to work with their own local copies, or "clones", of the repositories hosted on Stash.
Hope this clears it up for you!

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...
