Keypup Releases New timestamps, Making SDLC Analytics more Granular Than Ever

We are thrilled to announce the release of 10 new timestamps, making SDLC process analytics extremely precise. These timestamps will allow users to calculate more granularly how much time is spent in each step of the development process, from ideation to production. The new timestamps include:

  • First commit at - this field provides the datetime at which the first commit was made on a PR. It is populated based on the creation timestamp of the first commit in the PR or issue.
  • Last commit at - this field provides the datetime at which the last commit was made on a PR. It is populated based on the creation timestamp of the last commit in the PR or issue.
  • Review requested at - this field tracks the datetime at which the PR review was first requested. It is showcased by observing the datetime at which the requested reviewer's array attribute was first modified. (Note: this timestamp doesn’t apply on data collected prior to connecting to Keypup)
  • Review last requested at - this field tracks the datetime at which a PR review was last requested. It is showcased by observing the datetime at which the requested reviewers array attribute was last modified. (Note: this timestamp doesn’t apply on data collected prior to connecting to Keypup)
  • First review submitted at - this field provides the datetime at which the first review was submitted on a PR. It is populated based on the submission timestamp of the first PR review.
  • Last review submitted at - this field provides the datetime at which the last review was submitted on a PR. It is populated based on the submission timestamp of the last PR review.
  • Review rejected at - this field provides the datetime at which a PR was first rejected after a review. It is populated based on the submission timestamp of the first PR review with “request changes” status.
  • Review last rejected at - this field provides the datetime at which a PR review was last rejected after a review. It is populated based on the submission timestamp of the last PR review with “request changes” status.
  • Review approved at - this field provides the datetime at which a PR first met its minimum approval quota from approving reviews. It is populated based on the submission timestamp of the review that allows the PR to meet its minimum number of approving reviews while no “request changes” review is still active.
  • Review last approved at - this field is calculated using the same logic as the “Review approved at” field. The populated date will be different from it only if the PR is rejected and approved again.

These new timestamps will allow users to gain a deeper understanding of the development process by identifying areas where progress is slow or inefficient and where improvement can be made.

Keypup's new timestamps will provide software development teams with the data they need to improve their workflows and increase productivity.

Keypup’s features enhancements: improved product usability

We’ve made some enhancements to Keypup’s Development Intelligence solution to facilitate your journey with us and improve your experience.

These enhancements include:

  • Insight Widget Designer’s enhancements

The “Configure source” step has been renamed “Select dataset” and moved to the top of the insight builder. The content of the pane was also reworked to make it more transparent that the purpose of this step is to select a dataset, not to configure fields or take any other action. The dataset fields are hidden by default - they can be displayed by clicking a link. 

We no longer expand the formula input when focused to avoid distraction. 

It is now possible to switch from a “large card” widget to a “board” widget and vice versa. A toaster notifies you about the actions that were taken, such as removing all columns when switching from board to “large card”.

To improve filtering, we removed duplicate custom fields for JIRA and GitHub. We also better organized custom fields inside the dropdown, with one section per app. 

  • Displayed data increased

When working with tables, charts and KPIs, we increased the number of displayed data points from 100 to 500. This means that when grouping per week, you can now see up to 500 weeks of history (~ 9 years). When grouping per day you can now see up to 500 days (~ 1.5 years).

  • Dashboard Interface

We renamed the “Add Content” button to “Add insight”. The labels and icons of the shortcut dropdown have been reworked to be more self-descriptive.

  • Design improvements

Design > Loaders: All loading indicators are now consistent and use the same design.

Design > Empty insights: The legend is now hidden when an insight has no data and the placeholder content is displayed.

  • Number of required approvals now fetched from GitHub and GitLab for pull request reviews. If no required approvals are setup, Keypup still enforces a minimum of one.
  • New recommended action “Assign missing reviewers”. If one of your pull requests is in review but missing reviewers to reach the minimum number of required approvals, you’ll know about it 😉
  • Added “required approvals” and “required approvals remaining” to query filters. If you need to create reports, board columns or prioritization rules based on approval statuses, these new fields are the way to go!

New Agile Feature - Team retrospective

With Keypup Retrospectives, developers are finally able to provide feedback remotely, at their own pace, without interrupting their work.

  • Retrospectives are easy to prepare, easy to run. You can schedule retrospectives at regular intervals, that you set to match your development cycles. Set the start date, the frequency of occurrence and the feedback window.
  • When it's retro time, each developer will automatically receive an email or chat notification asking them to fill their retrospective and our platform will follow up automatically until completion.
  • When a retrospective closes, an email is sent to the whole team with the results. You can access to the full report in Keypup. The report is shareable within the team and saved for easy exploitation. Each aspect of the project is analyzed factually to improve future deliveries.

We built this new feature for all the remote teams that struggle to prepare retrospectives and collect usable data. This feature will save teams hours of meetings and allow retro to actually be actionable, as every team member has a say and provides contextual feedback.

The retrospective feature is currently in beta. Want to provide feedback or ask for improvements? Don't hesitate to contact us.

Performance update - Faster data synchronization and UI loading

We recently brought various performance improvements to the platform to deliver faster data synchronization and data display. We also implemented a series of general improvements and bug fixes across the platform.

  • Speed up third-party data ingestion and data enrichment processing time
  • As part of this performance work, we also brought many improvements to Cloudtasker, our open source library for GCP Cloud Tasks . These improvements will soon be released as part of v0.12.0.
  • Improve JIRA and Trello data fetching strategies, with better support for throttling and pagination.
  • Improve UI loading strategy, using on-demand content loading. See our writeup on this approach on our blog.
  • Improve default inbox prioritization rules, especially for items recently worked on

Connect multiple JIRA sites (multi-instance)

There are some cases where a company has multiple JIRA sites, either for different clients or different projects.

This new feature is for any agency, company or freelancer working on multiple client JIRA sites. We've made some enhancements for you to track projects across multiple JIRA instances. You can keep adding as many JIRA sites as you need then select which projects you wish to import on the projects page.

No matter the naming conventions and workflow specificities in your JIRA sites, you can harmonize your overall workflow statuses in Keypup.

Consolidate all JIRA instances on Keypup to have one nice organized view. You will now be able to remotely comment on issues belonging to the JIRA sites you connected.

Multiple JIRA instances + one Keypup account = One Global Workflow instead of multiple JIRA workflows completely separated from each others.

Better prioritization of implemented issues (to be closed)

This release provides better visibility of which issues are ready to be closed.

When an issue remains open after its related pull requests have been merged, we now move the issue back to the priority inbox of its assignees with the action close.

This new behaviour allows you to take action on the issue, that is either re-assign it to people which must still do work on it (e.g. end to end testing) or simply close it. No dangling issue due to someone forgetting to close it!

Along with this new feature we now display issues which are currently being implemented by pull requests in the Coming Up tab with the action Wait for PR. This allows you to see at a glance which issues are currently being worked on, but without spamming your actual inbox. As with pull requests, you can see the unified feed of discussions on these issues.

Shareable dynamic reports (Data Explorer)

The Data Explorer already allows you to query any development items from your projects without API and create reports.

We updated the Data Explorer with shareable reports.

Share your reports with your team or individual members.

What's great about this feature is the ability to share your reports directly with your teammates, so that you track the same things at the same time - and you can work in sync with your team and collaborate faster.

In the Query editor, just select the visibility of your report before you save it. You can also pin this report for all team members' priority inboxes and choose the order of appearance in their priority tab.

Feature improvement - Pull request and issues linking

Major improvements have been made on the auto-linking feature along with our December 2020 feature release, the Team Board.

Pull request and issues linking is quite an essential concept in Keypup because it allows for two things:

  • Pull requests and related issues are automatically grouped in your Priority Inbox or the Team Board. This considerably reduces the number of items to deal with on a daily basis and makes for a clean, easy and direct reading of everything a Pull Request addresses (including all nested issues). More convenient than having to conduct speleological searches in your repo, no?
  • Pull request due dates are automatically inferred based on the due dates of related issues. This means Keypup can properly prioritize pull requests to the right person when moved to review or merge status.

There are multiple ways to link issues to pull requests.

You can link issues and pull requests from the Priority Inbox (checkout our docs below)

Or you can link issues using closing keywords directly from GitHub and GitLab via:

  • Pull request title
  • Pull request description
  • Commit message

The Keypup Priority Inbox

The purpose of the priority inbox on Keypup is to gather items that you - as a developer - must action rapidly. The priority inbox leverages data from all apps you connected in order to evaluate the priority of items and the actions to take for each of them.

The priority inbox currently provides two actions.

Link pull requests to issues

Issues can be related to pull requests using keywords in titles, descriptions, and commits. Keypup will automatically combine items and activity feeds.

auto linking issues to pull request

Comment on pull requests or issues

A Quick reply field is also available for on items and related items (related items appear when a pull request is grouped with related issues).

Auto-linking all issues and discussions to pull requests

The auto-linking feature allows issues to be related to pull requests and have Keypup group these items automatically in your Priority Inbox for a better visibility.

You don't need to do anything extra as it integrates natively with existing auto-linking features of GitHub or GitLab or Bitbucket.

The auto-linking feature automatically creates a unified conversation feed across all items. This makes it way easier to ensure that you haven't missed any update on a related item. Note that you can still access each individual item-related discussion separately as well.

The auto-linking works with any number of issues and you get a nice summary by clicking on the inbox item.

Remote actions

Remote actions give you the ability to action items directly from Keypup. So that in one click you can trigger actions in all your connected tools at once.

Merge pull requests in GitHub or GitLab as well as comment on items in apps directly (GitHub, GitLab, JIRA or Clickup), all of that from the one place at once.

Quick reply on items

This quick reply feature is compatible with PRs which are auto-linked to issues. Commenting on the unified feed will comment on the PR itself, while commenting on an item-specific feed will create a comment in the remote system this issue belongs to (e.g. JIRA).

Merge pull requests straight from the Review & Merge Board

The Review & Merge Board, provides the capacity of merging your pull requests in one click. Items flagged as "Merge" in your review & merge board can now be merged directly from Keypup! No need to navigate to GitHub or GitLab to do so!

Keybot, the developer's assistant is released

"Hello, my name is Keybot. I am pleased to meet you. You are a developer and I am your new best friend - I will help you daily by simply communicating with you by email or on Slack to help you navigate your priorities."

Keybot is your new development assistant. Get any insights on all your development and issue trackers tools.

What does Keybot do?

You can find Keybot in your email inbox or on Slack. He helps sort out all your Pull Requests, merge reviews and more.

  • ⏰ Daily digests with your top priorities

It's a great feature because you can enhance your workflow and gain precious time with these remote actions from the dashboard:

  • Link merge requests and issues: merge requests and issues can be linked to each other directly from the Priority inbox using the 🔗 icon. In order to link items we update the description of the parent merge request and add a "closes: https://issue-url.domain" auto-linking keyword at the bottom of it.
  • Merge pull requests: approved merge requests with a green build on the Keypup platform - if any - and a mergeable status can be merged directly from the Keypup Review & Merge board.

Agile Board for developers

The team board is a visual way to follow the progress of issues and pull requests across all your usual tools, individually or as a team. Unlike Trello or JIRA, there is no need to move cards - the board is automatically updated based on the status of items.

Each column in the board is configured to retrieve issues and pull requests matching specific criteria. By default columns are configured in the following way:

  • Todo: Any open issue with at least one assignee
  • In development: Any open pull request which is not currently in review or for which changes have been requested
  • In review: Any open pull request for which a review has been requested or any pull request which has been approved but currently having build issues or conflicting with the base branch.
  • Mergeable: Any open pull request which has been approved, has a green build and does not conflict with the base branch.
  • Done: Any issue or pull request which has been closed or merged within the last 3 days.

Columns can be fully customized to match your own development steps and workflows. So you do not need to stick with the default ones.

By default the Team board shows you the progress of items across all team members. You can filter the board for a specific Team Member by using the View as filter.

The Team Board can easily be customized to better fit your development workflows. If you are using Scrum, Kanban or a mix of both, the Agile board can accomodate all tracking methodologies at the same time. All projects, no matter which methodology, in the one consolidated board.

This is not just another Agile board. It is not complicated. It is not for the project manager. It is a simple, yet powerful agile board designed specifically for developers by developers.

Build dynamic reports based on JIRA custom fields

Keypup now provides auto-discovery of JIRA custom fields because we know that most developers will customize their Jira to suit their needs.

Upon connecting your JIRA instance, Keypup automatically fetches and makes available filtering all JIRA fields with supported data types - this way, your own custom Jira is now ready in Keypup.

JIRA custom fields can be complex and we do our best to provide filtering that makes sense. Base JIRA fields are often composed of arrays, nested objects etc.. The Data Explorer automatically generates field and sub-field filters for these more complex fields as well.

Slack integration - Keybot gets smarter

Our Slack integration sets Keybot up - your soon-to-be best friend, and more pragmatically Keypup's communication bot -  into your workspace to communicate with you when important events occur.

It is also possible to ask questions to Keybot to quickly get an overview of the status of pull requests, issues and development tasks. For example asking "Which PRs are ready to be merged" will prompt Keybot to return the list of pull requests which are mergeable, have a green build, and have been approved.

Morning digest

Keypup users on Slack receive a morning digest every day at 9:05 am with the top priorities of their Priority inbox. And because we know Mondays need an extra push, Keybot will start the week with a comprehensive digest of your activities from last week and your outstanding priorities for this week. Handy, right?

Merge recommendations

When pull requests are mergeable, have a green build, and have been approved, Keybot will send a notification to project maintainers and propose to merge them. One click, and merged they are!

Asking questions to Keybot

You can ask questions to Keybot to get an update on pull requests and issues.

Here are a few examples of questions you may ask:

  • How many PRs can be merged?
  • Which PRs can be merged?
  • How many issues are open?
  • How many PRs have been merged last week?
  • Which PRs are ready to be reviewed?
  • ...and more!
