Work Privately, Contribute Globally
The powerful DVCS capabilities in Helix Versioning Engine extend to the Helix Visual Client so users can work with files locally:
- One-click clone of a remote folder without creating a remote mapping
- Fetch changes from a local server and push local changes to a remote server
- Enjoy the same native DVCS capabilities as Helix command-line users
File Comparison and 3-Way Visual Merging
Compare differences between file revisions and folder history over time with the diff tool. Helix Visual Client integrates with P4Merge, our full-featured, three-way visual merge tool. With P4Merge, it’s easy to:
- Pinpoint conflicts with color-coded highlights of text
- Make point-and-click merges of non-conflicting changes
File Status, History and Audit Trail
Visually inspect work in progress and history:
- See which files have been modified, checked out, or locked — and by whom
- Preview text, HTML, audio, video, and other files
- Store work in progress on the Helix Versioning Engine for safety via shelving
- Initiate code reviews and other handoffs via shelving and integration with Helix Swarm
Visualize Branch and Integration History
The Revision Graph tool displays the ancestry of a file in tree form, tracing its integration points across all branches.
- Review branch and integration history of files
- Highlight a specific revision path for easy viewing
- Follow revision history with associated changelist details
Get a Time-Lapse View
- View and contrast all versions of a single file in just one window

- Invoke time-lapse view in either depot or workspace view
Customize Helix Visual Client
- Create custom tools
- Customize Helix Visual Client by adding tabs and replacing the standard submit dialog with your own implementation
