    Hello, ive been developing using Collaborate and updating my files and folders...Making commits and so..

    The true is that Collaborate has lots of problems of other people updating, and some downloads/uploads problems...

    So my question is a tool/way to move the commits and files to github ( migrating without losing the work and commits and history) ? I suppose in essence collaborate is a CVS, so perhaps would be easy to migrate to github or other CVS....

    Reading the posts, with so many troubles with Collaborate, perhaps would be idea to offer for example a Github repo or at least have an option to choice between Collaborate and other CVS.

    Thanks

    Hi @edufissure! We are aware that Collaborate isn't right for every team, which is why we added an easy Export option for users to transfer their project, along with its history, to any Version Control System they choose. Simply go to your project's Dashboard from the Services Window, then under the Collaborate tab click on Storage. From there you can choose to start the export of your project to a zipped git repo which will be available as a link once the process finishes. Depending on the size of the project this process can take some time and you can choose to cancel it, as well.

    Hi Ryan,

    I've exported the project as a large .zip file and unfortunately see no link. Initialising the repo in the extracted .zip file once downloaded also does not grant access to any collab history - has this feature been removed?

    Hi @Whitepot, sorry for the confusion. When I was said that there was a link, I was referring to the "Download Zip" button that is a link to your exported project. You should still be able to see your project's full history. I just tested using the Github Desktop with an exported project and I'm able to see all my assets and my history. Could you tell me how you're initializing your project after you've downloaded it?
