New: Detect Releases via Repository Tags

Team Compare

Introducing Team Compare, our new report, crafted to merge and reinvent the Team Performance and Team Progress reports. Effortlessly compare teams' performance, analyzing their progress in one unified view.

You can select up to six teams to compare their performance across chosen metrics. You can have different visualizations in this report: card view, table view, scatter view, or radar view, ensuring an insightful and comprehensive comparison.

New: Undo merges

To improve the user experience when merging engineer profiles, we've introduced an 'Undo previous merge' button. This feature allows you to quickly revert the last merge action if you realize a mistake was made immediately after merging. 

Updated Design for the Contributor Insights Report

The performance tab includes an overview of the selected contributor's performance in a selected time frame compared to the average of a selected team. For each metric, you can see the value for the selected time frame, the evolution (%), the percentile bar, and an evolution graph.

Let the copilot know what kind of metrics you would like to track within your team (e.g., "I want to track my team's efficiency"; "I want to track my team's velocity"), and it will provide guidance on the appropriate settings to apply.
