NEW Heatmap

New Heatmap widgets to provide better clarity on your teams' activities! We have replaced the Activity Heatmap feature with improved widgets available in Team Insights, Contributor Insights, and the Dashboard. These widgets will provide better clarity on team activity based on commits, pull requests, tickets, reviews, or deployments. 

NEW Jira Webhooks

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Jira Webhooks! Now, with Jira Webhooks, you can receive real-time data updates from Jira directly in Waydev!

Improved Sharing Index

We improved the way we calculate the Sharing Index! The Sharing Index is a metric designed to assess how well your team collaborates on code reviews. It quantifies the distribution of reviews across your team members and considers factors that promote fair and active participation. By analyzing the distribution of reviews among submitters and the participation of reviewers, it provides a score from 0 to 1. A higher score indicates well-distributed reviews and active involvement from all team members.

Learn how the new Sharing Index is calculated here.

NEW Team Insights

The improved Team Insights Report provides a comprehensive summary of your teams' recent activities, enabling you to understand their performance and progress better.

In the snapshot section of the "Team Insights Page" you will now see:

  • The selected team's Cycle Time;
  • The selected team's Work Heatmap;
  • The selected team's total number of commits;
  • The selected team's Pull Request Activity;
  • The selected team's Most Active Pull Requests.
