In my local development site I have added a new file but it doesn't show up in the Unstaged Files by default.  How do you add it there so I can add it to the repository and commit it?

Hi @Sherry Jackson,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

If you run git status in the repository from the command line do you see it then? If not then you might have a .gitignore file that tells Git not to add the file to the repository. 

Hi @Mikael Sandberg - I'm very new to this.  I found another article and followed it by adding the file via the bitbucket website but now it is giving me a conflict on the pull because the local file exists.

Is there a way that if I add a file locally that the Sourcetree application will pick it up automatically to be pushed to the repository?

Yes, normally when you add a file to your repository Sourcetree will pick it up right away. But if you have a .gitignore file that specifies files that should be ignored. 

To solve the conflict you see on the pull you can move/remove the local file and then the pull should work.
