WIP: Identifying Work in Progress

The WIP ("Work in Progress") tab shows elements that are currently active in the workspaces below a specified set of one or more streams. (A stream's own default group is not included in this listing.)

Opening a WIP Tab

Select a dynamic stream in the StreamBrowser, and choose WIP from its context menu.

Working in a WIP Tab

Use radio buttons to specify which stream — or set of streams — whose workspaces are to be searched for active elements:

Current stream The stream you selected when invoking the WIP command.
All streams

All streams in the depot.

Current stream including all child streams/workspaces

The entire subhierarchy of streams below the one you selected.

Current stream including all parent streams/workspaces

The entire backing chain of the stream you selected.

A workspace is searched for active elements if it is a direct child of one of the streams you've indicated with your radio-button choice. (But pass-through streams are ignored when determining the "direct child" relationship. Workspaces whose parent is a pass-through stream are treated as if they were backed but their "grandparent" stream.)

The WIP tab display is informational only. You cannot change the status of elements from this tab.
