Time to close pull request

This report shows all pull requests closed during the selected period. The x-axis shows when it was closed. The y-axis shows how long it took to close. 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. 

Use the Time to close chart to filter for outliers. This helps you see if your team is meeting their targets. For example, if your team’s time to close 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 close is really good, you can use this report to look into times where Time to close is really high. This helps you identify issues that caused outliers. 

Close metrics

This section shows key metrics on PRs closed during the selected period. Use these graphs to identify outliers and manage the root causes of productivity variation. 

The graph shows the median time to close, the target time to close, and the max time to close. You can use this to gauge how your team is performing. You can also select a column and view the details of those PR metrics. For example, if your max is 75 hours, then you might want to dig into the PRs that took longer and see where your team can improve.
