πŸ“†πŸš¨ Weekend Activity Alerts πŸš¨πŸ“†

‍

‍

Since COVID, we've seen a huge rise in the amount of weekend work & burnout on teams. We've since included a 'Weekend Activity' alert (in beta) to help signal when your team is overworking on the weekends.

‍

Hopefully this can help keep a pulse on overwork and burnout during these trying times.

βŒπŸŽ‰ Removed Celebrations for 'Closed' Pull Requests πŸŽ‰βŒ

Last release, we added ability to set sprint date ranges dynamically. You could explore sprint ranges of any size. We've since added default sprint dates for each team so you can customize sprint dates to match your team's workflow.

‍

‍

Should we celebrate closing pull requests?
‍

Although closing pull requests is great for cleaning up our dusty repos, we felt it takes too much away from celebrating completed work. We've since removed closed pull requests from our celebrations but would love to hear from you!

‍

Do you celebrate closed pull requests?
