What is Shared Indexes?

You will see than when you open project in your IDE a lot of time is spent in indexing, this may not be too much wait time for small projects, but what if you are working on huge project, this may really get annoying for developers.

Shared project indexes are built for all project sources, libraries, and SDKs. You can generate them on one computer and then apply on another computer. This is the main advantage of shared indexes over ordinary indexes. Using shared indexes is reasonable for large projects, where indexing might take a lot of time, creating inconveniences for the teams involved.
