Hi @manjaymachine7869,

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our community organized so users can more easily find information.

As you’ll notice, your topic is now here in the How to use Git and GitHub board. No action is needed on your part; you can continue the conversation as normal here.


Hi @manjaymachine7869,

Since a branch could be created by either the GitHub web interface or a local user, the best way to get the date and time that a branch was created would be to checkout the branch locally and run the git show command. The --summary flag can be especially useful for this.

Hope that helps!
