Developers use pull requests to review code and ship quality software at speed. They’re core to the software development process of many teams. Getting to that relevant pull request (aka PR) is important to get your work done in time. But finding your PRs in Bitbucket Cloud hasn’t been easy. Currently, you need 5 clicks (yes, we counted) before you discover that PR you’re looking for. That’s unacceptable!
What if PRs were front and center on your dashboard in Bitbucket Cloud? Today, we’re launching a new personalized dashboard that will list all the PRs that you’ve been asked to review and the PRs you’ve created, across all repos, in one single place. So, that PR you’re looking for is just a click away.
In this new personalized dashboard:
- On the top left, you’ll find the open PRs on which you’ve been added as a reviewer, along with other reviewers, their approvals, comments, and tasks.
- On the bottom left, you’ll find a list of open PRs you’ve created, with the same details.
- On the far right, you’ll find your recently updated repositories.
We know staying on top of code review discussions is key, so we added a blue dot on the PR comments to indicate when there are new comments since the last time you looked.
If you’re not using PRs, don’t worry – the personalized dashboard will only list your recently updated repositories. And don’t forget that the full list of your repositories is just a tab away.
We’ve been dogfooding the new personalized dashboard internally at Atlassian for the last month, and in that time, we’ve noticed our software teams clean up old pull requests faster and reduce code review time significantly! No more bookmarking the PR list page of individual repos and no more wasted time to find that damn PR.
We’re gradually rolling this out to all our Bitbucket users, but if you cannot wait and want to turn it on today, just head over to the Labs menu in Settings.
