GitHub PR reminder

Schedule reminders and never let your GitHub Pull Requests go stale.

Overview

Stay on top of your code reviews by scheduling reminders when a PR is inactive for a certain period. You can enable this automation for all of your GitHub repos, or for specific repos. When you enable GitHub autonomous work, PR reminders are scheduled to be posted on linked issues. You may also enable the GitHub PR Task automation that creates a task for every PR.

How it works

To use this automation, you'll need to connect your GitHub with DevRev so we can listen to PR events. When you install this flow, we'll walk you through a few simple steps to connect and setup your reminders. You can find more on the supported connection methods here.

Features

Post reminders on your DevRev issues, when related GitHub Pull Requests are inactive for a certain period.

Automatic PR reminders

When a pull request is inactive for more than a specified number of days, then this automation will post a message in all related DevRev issues. You'll need to link your GitHub Pull Request to DevRev issue to enable these reminders. There are several ways to link your GitHub Pull Requests to DevRev Issues. You can do so by mentioning the DevRev issue-id in Pull Requests title or body, or mention it in the branch name or commit message. Reminders are also posted for issues created autonomously.

You can choose to setup the inactive period in number of days through the max_inactive_days setting.
