Hi All

I'm running Visual Studio Pro 2017, and have access to about 100+ solutions for SQL Server databases we have here.  I'm assigned to teams that are heavy users to two specific solution/databases, and am expected to speak to any database change for those databases.

Question:  How can I either...
1  Do a View History on an entire solution?  In TFS I could do this by clicking on the Solution file and then right-click > View History, but in Git this only works for the solution file itself and not the entire solution.
2  Create a notification (alert?) that sends an email anytime anybody makes a change to a specific solution, and then creates a Pull Request (PR) on it?   Going into User Settings > New Subscription, it only allows me to differentiate by branch, and not by solution.

Thanks in advance.
