Overview

There are a few manual configurations you can set for your reports. All these configurations can be found under the Configurations page. Below is an overview of each setting and their functionality.

Getting started

In order to modify these configurations you will need the Configurations permission. If you already have this permission you can navigate to Settings then click on Configurations to get started.


Pull request tracking

This configuration allows you to determine when some of your PR metrics calculations begin. Specifically metrics that are time based, like the Time to Resolve metric.

  • Created - This the default configuration. PRs will start being tracking the moment they are created.
  • First commented - This configuration will set your PR metrics to begin from the time the first comment was made.
Important: Changing this setting can cause slight delays in processing pull requests.

Comment robustness

This configuration allows you to customize your comment robustness for the Review and collaboration report. Input the number of words on each side of "Regular" to set the word count for trivial, regular and robust comments.

Pull requests to exclude

This setting allows you to exclude PRs by regular expressions. Some organizations want certain PRs excluded from metrics. People with WIP PRs are a common example. Use a regex to conform the Flow platform to your process. Learn more.

Pull request comments to exclude

Using this configuration you can exclude specific pull request comments using regular expressions. Some teams have processes where certain comments should be excluded from metrics (i.e. "+1"). Learn how.

Default pagination page size

This setting allows you to set the default page size. Based on your selection here, will determine how many rows of data will be displayed in reports that use pagination. Reports that use pagination include but are not limited to, Work log, Review and collaboration and Review workflow.

Team drop down order

You can set how your teams are listed in the team filters in your reports. You can have them listed alphabetically or by size (default).

Virtual team configuration

This setting pertains to the system generated team called "Recently active users". With this configuration you can set what work types are taken into consideration when determining recent users. Currently this team, by default, contains all users who have been active in the last 9\30 days, but you can customize this time frame with this configuration.

In the image above, the "Recently active users" team is set to pull in any user that has any commit or PR data in the past 30 days. You can see these settings at the team level as well.


When you change the team's settings the changes will also reflect on the Team details page so you know what work types are being considered and during what time frame.

Custom date ranges

This section enables your organization to take advantage of custom date ranges.

  • Enable custom date ranges - This setting enables you to show specific calendars and or sprints in your date picker in your reports. Learn more here.



  • Utilize updated calculation logic to support custom date ranges (recommended) - This setting changes the way any partial week is calculated in your fundamental reports. Metrics are weighted on the number of days selected in the time frame rather than entire weeks.
