During manual code review it can be a chore to keep track of what has been reviewed, and who needs to do what. With Codean this is simplified: within a project, files and folders can be marked by users as reviewed, or out of scope, right in the project’s file explorer. This makes progress visible at a glance, and prevents you from accidentally reviewing code that is out-of-scope or already reviewed.
We are also working hard on an upcoming feature: our heatmap-based review activity. This layer can be toggled on to see previous review activity as hotspots in the code. This will help you get a better understanding of code coverage, but also help direct new or less experienced team members to relevant areas.
Dashboards play a crucial role in enabling both users and developers to efficiently monitor the progress of a project.
Internal dashboards serve as valuable tools for gaining insights into the code review progress, offering a comprehensive understanding of the work that has been completed and what lies ahead. By presenting a concise overview of the project status and highlighting any identified vulnerabilities, external dashboards empower the development team to stay well-informed, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual reporting or inefficient communication on progress.
Access information and details regarding code development: all relevant data that provides a comprehensive understanding of the codebase evolution and current state in a glimpse. This approach surpasses traditional code diffing by providing a far more insightful and complete view, which requires no side-by-side comparison or narrow code views.
