How to know what branches contains this branch?

Suppose I have 3 branches, dev, feature1, feature2. I merge feature 1 into dev. How can someone else see that feature1 branch is now on dev?

Preferably by not looking at the graph. If there are 50 feature branches, it becomes difficult to follow in graph. Can Sourcetree do something like click on feature1 and it shows a list of other branches that feature1 is on?

We don't expose this right now but here's the command line version which you can execute via the Terminal button:

Find branches which a commit (or branch pointing to a commit) have been merged into:

git branch --contains <commit/tag/branch>

Find branches which have been merged into the named branch:

git branch --merged <commit/tag/branch>
