GitHub not integrating with Unreal engine 4

I have been assembling a group of friends to work on unreal engine 4, and learn the basics, so logically we started with source control. We used GitHub, as some of us had a bit of previous experience, but none of us with the integration into unreal. we found a few YouTube videos, and set up GitHub. It was working well, and registering the commits we made from unreal to GitHub Desktop, as well as seeing external changes to the repository, but unreal wasn’t seeing the new files when we pulled data from the repository. Anything helps! :slight_smile: Thanks in advance.
