    Is the Windows Client supposed to sync with the cloud for project development?

     We have a developer in our office developing a project using the Windows Client IDE.  

    But when I go to view it in my IDE or even in the online interface, I don't see ANY of the changes.  Are the changes and saves made in the Windows Client supposed to show in the online or other Windows client?

     Am I mistaken, or are the changes supposed to sync with the cloud?  Or are we supposed to have version control installed?   I am confused because I thought the Windows Client and the Browser clients synced with the same project.

     If they are, what are steps I can take to get these to sync. Is this a firewall issue?  Or something with the app itself?

    Hello Carlos,

    I addressed these questions in the support ticket and the forum threads you started. If you have any further questions, please use the support ticket to post them as the support ticket comes with a guaranteed 48hours response time.

    For the benefit of the community I will summarize the information here as well.

    The Windows client of AppBuilder does save the changes a developer makes and they can be accessed through the In-Browser client. However, only the developer who made the changes can see them unless you configure the project for collaboration.

    AppBuilder projects are not configured for collaboration by default. This means that when a new project is created, the project automatically becomes visible to all team members of the account. However, they cannot contribute or see your changes in the project. To collaborate with other users in AppBuilder, you need to configure your project for collaboration by setting up a GitHub repository and inviting the other Telerik Platform users as collaborators to it. Once you do that you can push any local changes in the remote repository and allow your team members to pull the changes in their own local repositories in Telerik Platform.

    The following tutorials provide more information on that topic:

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
