πŸš€ Deployment Frequency (v1.0) πŸš€

| Stop starting. Start finishing. - David J. Anderson.

Long waited metric Deployment Frequency is now available!

Knowing your deployment frequency helps understand the rate at which you're delivering value to customers. With the best teams deploying on a daily basis, this is a key North Star Metric to help keep your team on track and delivering.

This is the initial version (v1.0) of deployment frequency. We pride ourselves on delivering quickly and iterating to perfection so we'll be supporting more configurations as we learn more about what users need.

For now, here's how you can identify your deployments via pull requests:

  1. Pull Requests merged into a specific branch (e.g. merged to master)
  2. Pull Requests containing a title (e.g. 'release-v*')
  3. Pull Requests containing a label (e.g. 'deployment')
Note: if none of these configurations work for you, email julian@usehaystack.io so we can add them!
