GitHub PR tasks

Code reviews are also work. Create a task for every GitHub PR and stay on top of your code reviews.

Overview

Code reviews can be time consuming — we may not always account for this in planning which may lead to poor estimates and delays. Make sure your code reviews are tracked as tasks, so you can stay on top of them.

Create tasks when you are added as a reviewer on a PR. When you enable this automation, we’ll create a task corresponding to this code review. This task is embedded in the related issue, and can also be tracked under My Tasks.

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

Your code reviews are also work and need to be accounted for. Use this automation to create a task for every code review, and stay on top of your GitHub PR reviews.

Automatic PR tasks

When a pull request is requested or reopened, a DevRev task is created for you. In order for this automation to be triggerred, you'll need to link your Pull Requests to DevRev issues. If your PR is removed, merged or closed, then the Task gets deleted. However, if you submit your PR review, then the task is closed.

Frequently asked questions
