Focus View

The Focus View displays all of your Pull Requests, Issues, and Works In Progress (WIPs) relevant to you for a selected filters. You have a search bar to filter the results and columns that represent different states of the PRs, Issues, and WIPs, and dropdown selectors for workspace-based filtering.

Getting started with the Focus View

The Focus View tab can be found in the top-left corner. By default, it displays a list of your Pull Requests, WIPs and Issues directly from your Hosting Service and Issue Tracker, not limiting to a Workspace.

Connect Integrations

Integrate your repositories, issues, and pull requests with the Focus View to consolidate your workflow.

You can easily connect your integrations at Preferences > Integrations

Set up Workspaces and Integrations

Create a Workspace with the relevant integration. Once created, you will be able to filter and focus on WIPs for specific repositories, issues, and pull requests.

  • ALL: Shows all pull requests, issues, and WIPs for the repositories in selected Workspace.
  • PRS: Shows all open pull requests for the repositories in selected Workspace.
  • ISSUES: Shows all issues for the repositories in selected Workspace.
  • WIPS: Shows all uncommitted changes for the repositories in selected Workspace.

You can filter the Pull Requests and Issues by the following:

  • Filter PRs by Mine, Created by Me, Assigned to Me, or Needs my review.
  • Filter ISSUES by Mine, Created by Me, Assigned to Me, or Mentioned.

Pull Requests and Issues can be pinned (and unpinned) by selecting the icon to move them to the top of the list. Additionally, you have the option to Snooze PRs either indefinitely or for a specific duration by clicking the icon, which will relocate them to the ‘Snoozed’ section. To retrieve these PRs, simply visit the ‘Snoozed’ section and remove them from the snooze state.”

From the Focus View, you can take action quickly on items such as:

  • Merge pull request
  • Close pull request
  • Update issue status
  • Mark issue as closed
  • Open pull request/issue in the browser

Instead of hunting for these pieces of information separately, you can get a holistic view of what you’re working on.
