Often its not always clear what issue a teammate is working on just by looking at your issue tracker, but now you can check who is working on what without disturbing anyone!

GitLive integrates with Jira, GitHub Issues, Bitbucket Issues, Azure DevOps Work Items and GitLab Issues (with Trello coming soon) allowing you to share what issue you are currently working on with your teammates based on your current branch.

A teammates’ current issue is display beside their name in the Team Window and automatically updates when they switch project or branch. If you expand a user node in the tree the current issue for each of their working copies is shown beside the relevant working copy.

After selecting an issue, a feature branch named after that issue automatically gets created (if it does not already exist) and checked out from the default branch, meaning you are ready to get to work straight away.
