    In most source control services you are allowed to see what changed in each file.

    My team recently switched to Unity Collaborate, and I am trying to figure out how to view changes in files from my friend's commit. So far it tells me what files have changed, but not what contents in them were actually changed, such as lines of code.I see this as important because I want to know what exactly changed with each commit.

    Can someone please direct me?

    Hi @11clock,

    Currently there isn't a way to see exactly which lines have changed in someone's commit unless there's a conflict and you choose to open it in a diff/merge tool. The best workaround for this at the moment is to be concise with your commit comments on what specific changes you made. You're right that it's a very important feature and we do plan to incorporate it in the future.

    +1 to this request. I don't even work with anyone else and I find this a huge gap. Today I make a backup copy of each of my published builds, then do a diff using Beyond Compare between the two folders. I should not need to do that.

    yeah, +1. Just had a small hickup with collaborate (couldn't revert to the last revision, so I had to go back one more), and I am trying to restore everything as it was.
