  • Checked-in Icon appears next to checked in tests.
  • Checked-out Icon appears next to checked out tests.

Note In general, Test Studio does not check out a project from source control when the project opens. However, if one or more project files are out of date (for example, they were created by an older version of Test Studio), Test Studio will attempt to check them out for an update. This will continue until an up-to-date version of the files are checked into source control.
