So glad your first try was so positive. Please continue to use the tool and let us know if there are any issues that come up later. Also, if you have any ideas on ways we could improve SQL Source Control or new features that you would like to see, please post to http://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/390 ... ce-control.

Will this track external changes?

Since, this is an SSMS add-in, I presume that it will not track changes made to a database not made using SSMS?

Actually, it doesn't matter which tool you use to modify your database. SQL Source Control compares the state of your development database with source control. If it identifies a difference, it will show up. Of course the advantage of using SSMS and the add-in is that you can see which objects have changed, and you can commit and retrieve changes. However, if you choose to modify your development database with any other tool, even of a different machine, SQL Source Control will pick up the change.
