 Can't seem to find a lot of good documentation on the Shell Client.  Here is an issue that is going to be confusing for our user community of non techincal users.  If a user has an active sandbox in the shell client and loads it but does not change anything and than goes home at night comes.  The user comes back the next  morning and wants to reconnect to the sandbox.  From what I see the only action is to go to the project folder in the sandbox (the one under but at the same level as the  .jazz5 folder), right click and selects  "Share"  The user is  made to authenticate again and asked to choose a component in the repository workspace.  The action seam to be resharing the local folder.  After this is done all your folders will show up with the arrow pointing to the right meaning something has to be delivered when in reality nothing has really changed.   Can someone explain if there is a better way to reconnect the sandbox to the repository workspace?  Is there a one click or two click way to do this?  and why all the folders and file have icons for outgoing changes.  Thanks

 After sharing a folder, does the user deliver it? Unless the changes are delivered, outgoing arrow will appear on the top level folders and files underneath them.

After sharing a top level folder (a folder at the same level as .jazz5 folder), the user has to perform a deliver action so that other users will get an incoming changeset containing the top level folder.
