Create a project from a remote location

Create a remote project from a remote location to collaborate with other users, or back up a version of the project to a remote repository. Creating a project from a remote location creates the local project and the local repository. It also configures the associated remote repository URL. Commit changes locally and then push and pull changes so make the latest changes available to you and others.
