As a manager, it’s important to know how everyone is doing individually and as a team. Managing large teams is difficult. The volume of activity is overwhelming. Standups are ineffective and meetings take up valuable time. Gain a bird’s eye view of your team’s output and work habits. Zoom into commit and pull request activity to eliminate guesswork.
How to use the Work Log
The Work Log helps engineering managers make decisions backed by data, set expectations proactively, and help their team improve over time.
The Work Log helps managers gain visibility into their onboarding process, understand where their team is focusing their attention, or notice when there’s an unexpected spike in activity.
As you can see, the Work Log is a powerful new way to manage your engineering team more effectively. Use it to:
- Visualize the interpersonal dynamics and patterns in a team;
- Identify bottlenecks at a glance;
- Increase momentum and deliver faster, with clear expectations.
Click any item in the Work Log report to zoom in and find out valuable information, such as:
- The work focus;
- The commit size;
- The commit message;
- The time of execution;
- Pull request reviews;
- Pull request comments;
- The time to first comment;
- The status of the pull request;
- The commit timeline of the pull request;
- The repository where the work was done.
