Toad can integrate with your existing version control system allowing you to maintain multiple versions of Toad files. After you integrate Toad with your version control system, you can perform version control tasks directly from within Toad, such as commit file changes and retrieve revisions.
Toad supports the following version control systems for managing Toad files:
The following types of files can be managed using version control from within Toad: Editor (.tef, .sql, .txt), Query Builder (.tsm), ER Diagram (.ter), and Automation (.tas).
To configure version control for Toad files
In Toad, open one of the supported file types. Then right-click the document window tab and select File Version Control | Version Control Wizard. This action opens the Version Control Wizard which allows you to configure Toad for your version control system.
