πŸ“Š New Macro Trends & Overview Page πŸ“Š


New metrics added!

At Haystack we believe in focusing ONLY on core metrics. Let's keep things simple and focus on the metrics that matter. We promise we'll never include silly metrics like 'Coding Days' or 'Impact Scores' but there are a few core metrics we've found to be very helpful for teams.

Here they are:

  1. Review Breakdowns (Response Time, Rework Time, Completion Time)
  2. Weekend Activity
  3. Pull Request Health Metrics (Comments, PR Size)


Note: To learn best practices and how to use these new metrics with your team, email julian@usehaystack.io for a quick 10 minute session.



πŸ”— URL Linking πŸ”—

Ever feel the need to share the dashboard data but don't know how? Well.. Now you can simply copy/paste any Haystack url and share it!

Easily share Haystack data with a simple copy/paste. Shared links will bring the user to the exact view you're looking at (filters included)


Note: Haystack is offering unlimited dashboard accounts (no additional cost). If you'd like to add more accounts, simply email julian@usehaystack.io
