Pull request comments


Pull request comments on GitHub can provide a number of benefits, including improving workflows. Pull request comments can be integrated with other tools to automate parts of the code review and deployment process. PR comments can help engineering teams to improve the quality of their code, enhance collaboration, and streamline their development workflow.

You can use Foresight's pull request comments with major impacts! This feature allows Foresight to comment on a pull request, making it easier to have discussions and provide feedback on the workflow and the test impacts of the pull request.

  • Since the beginning of the pull request, there were 8h 14m spent on workflows, and 5h 37m of them were testing.

Major impacts
