πŸ… Change Failure Rate πŸ…

Change failure rate is a measure of the quality of the release process. It's one of Haystack's North Star Metrics.

We updated the metric calculation from # of Hotfixes to # of Hotfixes / # of Deployments.

Not only can you see the percentage rate, you can also see if you are moving in the right direction.

Additionally, we have added silver and gold badges for Change Failure Rate. According to State of DevOps 2019 reportsπŸ… elite teamsπŸ… have change failure rate less than 15%.

Haystack now allows you to see where you fit. Check your results at Deployments page!

Note: Set your Change Failure Rate using deployments page. If you need assistance on how to set it correctly, please contact support@usehaystack.io

πŸ“¬ Deployment & Change Failure in your Inbox and Slack πŸ“¬

Keeping up with your team is important. Now you can get Deployment Frequency and Change Failure Rate updates right to your inbox!

Note: Set your notifications from notifications page. If you need assistance, please contact support@usehaystack.io.

πŸ“¦ New Draft Pull Requests Calculation πŸ“¦

We used to calculate Review Time from Pull Request open date. Quite a few of you requested to count draft pull requests as Development Time and that's exactly what we did!

If you are using draft pull requests, we calculate it inside Development Time until the the pull request is marked as Ready To Review. Learn more on our Knowledge Base.

We have heard you and made improvements on our data analysis performance. The dashboard should load 300% faster.

We want you to explore Haystack insights and make data backed decisions. We'll continue to work hard to improve your dashboard experience.
