Subtree notifications

I'm using the latest version of Sourcetree (2.7.3) with a repo that I'm hosting on Bitbucket (it's a Wordpress website project). Everything works great. Yesterday I started working with a Subtree (a shared plugin that I use across multiple website projects). I was able to pull and push changes without a problem. What I noticed, however, is there is no indication/notification when new commits are available for pulling for the subtree. Let me explain:

When my main project (repo) has new commits available on the remote, Sourcetree displays a little notification in the sidebar, toolbar, and History, showing how many commits we are behind and that I there are new changes ready to be pulled. (See image)

However, when working in my main repo project with the subtree, when the subtree's remote has new commits available, Sourcetree doesn't tell me that. So I have no way of knowing that there's an update to the subtree plugin. Is there something I'm missing here? A setting that needs to be enabled somewhere?


Is there a better way of working with a shared plugin?

I'm afraid we don't support that as of today. Can you please submit a feature request on for the product team to triage and consider for an upcoming release?
