\\\n"What branch are you on?" is often the first question you ask when a teammate says, "The tests aren't passing" or "The build failed". \n\n\\\nHere's how you can get an answer to that question without even needing to ask.\n\n\\\n## Simple Way to See What Branch Your Teammates are on in VS Code\n\n\\\nIn VS Code, open up the team tab by clicking on the GitLive icon on the activity bar.\n\n !(https://cdn.hackernoon.com/images/UXbP4RwOl8ZwnfIiCRT6SsQ9yEA3-8qe35iq.jpeg)\n\nThis will show a list of your teammates if they are online (or away) and the issue they are currently working on. \n\n\\\nLocate the teammate you are interested in and click the arrow on the left-hand side of their avatar.\n\n\\\n !(https://cdn.hackernoon.com/images/UXbP4RwOl8ZwnfIiCRT6SsQ9yEA3-rvu35fy.png)\n\nNow you will see all the repositories they have cloned including the name of their current branch!\n\n\\\n !(https://cdn.hackernoon.com/images/UXbP4RwOl8ZwnfIiCRT6SsQ9yEA3-dv16354m.png)\n\n## NOTE: \n\n\\\nIf an issue has been connected to the branch you'll see the issue name instead, if that's the case just hover your cursor over the issue name and a tooltip will appear showing you the branch name (and even the commit hash).\n\n\\\n !(https://cdn.hackernoon.com/images/UXbP4RwOl8ZwnfIiCRT6SsQ9yEA3-n71j35cx.png)\n\nDon't have the GitLive extension installed yet? \n\n\\\nYou can find it [here](https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=TeamHub.teamhub) and, if you need help setting it up, follow the instructions [here](https://docs.git.live/docs/installation/).
