The Merged pull requests graph displays, as the name implies, the number of merged code reviews for the selected period.
You can view this data by day, week, or month. Please note that the display of the last six months or the last year does not allow the display by day.
Example of use
For the following graph, the displayed period is the last six months, and the display mode is per week. Overall, we can see that, on average, 39.1 code reviews are integrated per week. According to the trend (shown by the red dotted line), the team used as an example currently has a decrease in the number of merged reviews. We can also clearly see an increase in variation since September.
Since this graph is interactive, hovering over it with your mouse will display more details for a given week (depending on the display mode selected).
Merged pull requests reflect the throughput of the development team for a given period. Therefore, more merged pull requests generally mean more work delivered.
Psst! This indicator is helpful to evaluate the activity of a team and its ability to deliver work consistently. The objective is not necessarily to deliver a high number of items but to deliver quality work continuously.
