Useful tips for administrators

Posted on February 16, 2011

At the Subversion live event in London yesterday one of the users asked me whether TortoiseSVN 1.7 would provide a way to customize the context menu entries, so that he could remove certain entries/commands for certain users.

I was a little bit surprised, because that can already be done using TortoiseSVn 1.6.x.

But this made me realize that more users or administrators are not aware of that feature, and maybe other features as well.

We have a full chapter in our docs with useful tips for administrators or users who have to watch other less advanced users.

That chapter is called "Useful Tips For Administrators" and the part about how to remove entries from the context menu is called "Disable context menu entries".

You don't need to wait for TortoiseSVN 1.7 to get this feature, it's already implemented in TortoiseSVN 1.6.x
