The Review Workflow provides a map of pull request activity in the selected time frame. Identify long-running pull requests, unreviewed pull requests that have been merged, and spot closed pull requests that have not been merged.

How to use the Review Workflow feature

Review Workflow shows all the Pull Requests that were open at any time during the selected period. PRs opened before the selected period are included if they were open during the selected period. Use this report as your starting place for a birds-eye view of all Pull Request activity.

You can select which team’s review workflow to see, which repositories’ review workflow to see, what period should the review workflow span to, as well as what type of workflow reviews to see (open, merged, closed, or all).

One of the uses of the Review Workflow is to identify long-running pull requests, zoom into them and point out what is keeping/ kept that pull request from being merged. It can be a late review, unclear requirements, or multiple follow-on commits.

Another use of the Review Workflow is to identify the unreviewed pull requests that have been merged. We display them with a yellow color. Pull requests that have been merged can raise critical issues if done by a less experienced engineer.

An additional use of the Review Workflow feature is to spot closed pull requests that have not been merged. We display them with a grey color. Closed pull requests that have not been merged indicate unproductive work.

The bars represent the time it took for a pull request to close, while the numbers on the right side of the page are the pull request’s ID. The bubbles indicate a follow-on commit, while the half bars indicate the comments. If you click on a bar, details about that particular pull request will pop up.

You can see the pull request ID, the engineer that created the pull request, when it was opened and when was it merged, how much time passed until the first comment, the work level, the number of commits, the number of comments, the number of reviews and its status. You will also see a timeline of the follow-on commits and comments on the pull request. If you click on a commit title, the commit page from the Git provider will open in a new window.
