    On the project I'm working on, we have multiple developers working on different pieces of an app. All are using the VS extension and we use LiveSync to a remote device. The problem is we can't seem to sync to the cloud between users and instead each developer generates their own build and new QR code. Is there a way to LiveSync changes for all developer to a single build? In other words, is it possible to link the app's cloud to multiple users instead of having to switch back and forth between each developer's build?

    Hello Rebecca,

    Currently there is no out-of-the-box way to handle this scenario in AppBuilder. We plan to introduce such functionality in one of our next updates of the product.

    Having said that there is an unsupported way to do this at this point in time. You can create a new project in the Web or Windows clients of AppBuilder. Then you can add your files from the Visual Studio project in this newly created project and share this project's QR code for deployment. You should make sure that your project properties match between the VS iceproj file and the one in the cloud.

    If you want to automate the process you can use a central git repository connected to the cloud project and then you can push to this repository when you want to see the changes from the VS project. Here you can find a sample project that illustrates this, but be warned that this solution comes with a huge disclaimer.
