Tracking folder/files of a submodule


Can someone close this please? We solved the issue.


Hey everyone,

We have another project inside our project as a submodule and want Sourcetree/Git to track the submodule's folder/files.

We are working with a different company together but need to keep our files in our repository.

So we get updates from the submodule (which is the actual project) and we keep working on our code.

I'm aware of the problem that we might get conflicts but in our case that won't happen often and if it does happen it's not going to be a big problem.


Would really appreciate if someone can help me with this issue :)

Thank you very much in advance!
