Question regarding updating all submodules when doing a Pull

Hi Team,

With the latest SourceTree, is there a way to update all submodules when doing a Pull?

Hello! Can you go to "Options -> Git" and make sure "Perform submodule actions recursively" is checked? That should run `submodule update --init` when pulling.

I have that checked, but it's not running `submodule update` in version 2.7.

I believe you are looking for the following behaviour:

There is an easier way to do this as well, if you prefer to not manually fetch and merge in the subdirectory. If you run git submodule update --remote, Git will go into your submodules and fetch and update for you


Sourcetree does not currently support that functionality
