The PR resolution report helps review merged PRs for key health indicators to support healthy work patterns and identify outliers. Use PR resolution to filter for outliers. Use the distribution charts to identify the root cause of outliers in productivity. Additionally, view the time elapsed to merge trends and first comment trends for PRs.

With PR resolution, team leads, managers, and executives can:

  1. Understand a team's PR activity trends and use these patterns to support work trends. 

  2. Identify normal patterns and outliers in the code review process.

  3. Track progress against collaboration targets. 

  4. Review merged PRs to spot teams’ trends. 

Time to merge

This report shows all pull requests merged during the selected period. The x-axis shows when it was merged. The y-axis shows how long it took to merge. Use this report to view your team’s patterns in your team's PR resolution practices. You can also use it to manage the team’s productivity trends against targets as a whole. 

Note: If the Weighted toggle is On, the y-axis on the Time to merge graph is Time to merge divided by Impact. For each merged PR, the Time to merge is divided by the Impact for the PR. If the Weighted toggle is Off, the y-axis shows only the Time to merge.

Use the Time to merge graph to filter for outliers. This helps you see if your team is meeting their targets. For example, if your team’s Time to merge is higher than your target, then you want to see those trends going down. Review this chart weekly or biweekly to ensure those trends are improving. 

If your Time to merge is close to your target, use this report to look into times where Time to merge is really high. This helps you identify issues that cause outliers.

Merge metrics

This section shows key metrics on PRs merged during the selected period. These graphs help you identify outliers and manage the root causes of productivity variation. 

Note: Closed PRs are not counted toward the metrics calculations in this report.

Use these graphs to gauge how your team is performing. You’ll see the median values for PR metrics, as well as maximums, minimums, and targets, where applicable. 

Tip: If you’d rather see the average Time to merge and Time to first comment metrics, use Submitter fundamentals and Reviewer fundamentals.

Click a column to view the details of those PR metrics in the PR list below. For example, if your maximum is 75 hours, you might want to look into the PRs that took longer and see where your team can improve.
