What can I do with the Source Module?

The Source Module brings code repositories directly to your activeCollab projects. With the Source Module you can:

  • Browse your code in activeCollab.
  • Compare versions of submitted files.
  • Download files in their original format.
  • Gain insight into the history of your code repository.
  • Make a connection between your commit messages and Tasks in activeCollab.

Just like any other part of a project, access to the Source Module depends on activeCollab Project Roles and Permissions. Following this rule, your users can have four levels of access:

  • Access and Create - Users will be able to add new repositories.
  • Access, Create and Manage - Users with this permission will have unlimited access to all repositories.
