After I have committed and pushed to a branch on one computer, opening up SourceTree on another computer (having checkout the same repository with valid SSH keys), SourceTree does not indicate that there are new Pulls to be made (should be indicated by the little red integer above the pull-arrow icon). Pull still works, but there is no notification in the UI that a pull can be made, or that I am one or more commits behind. How do I enable this indication in the UI?
Sorry about that, I was reading too hastily. There are a couple of settings that could change this. The first one is in Tools > Options under the General tab "Check default remotes for updates every X minutes". If this is turned off, or you have a large value in there, you may not see changes get fetched.
The second option is in the repository settings on the advanced tab there's a setting at the bottom "Refresh remote status in the background".
If you could check both of these making sure they're set then we can go from there. Also, make sure the branch with changes to be pulled is checked out, then wait a while whilst it does a background fetch to make sure. It syncs up with your tracking branch so doing that will do a background fetch and show the pull count for that branch.
Desktop notifications are Mac-only at the moment in case you're using Windows. The setting is in the 'General' tab of your SourceTree preferences. The setting says "Disable desktop notifications" which, if you want notifications to be shown, should be disabled.
Hope that helps
No I do NOT mean desktop notifications, I mean the little red counter next to the pull button in the Sourcetree client top toolbar, see the image below (I know the image is from the Mac client but the UI is the same in Windows).
Here's the thing, at work I have the Windows client, and I can see there are (for example) 2 available pulls. At home I also have the Windows client, but I'm unable to see these notifications. At work, there's a standard server, and at home, I'm using a GIT repository hosted by BitBucket. In both cases, I use SSH and have specifed my private key in Sourcetree.
To clarify, pulling works fine at home, but I dont see the "available pulls count".
I have the exact same problem, both at home and at work. This also happens on two separate GIT's, both of them hosted on Bitbucket.
I have the red notication appear in the past but it just doesn't appear at all now, when there are definitely new pulls present.
