The Launchpad 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 Launchpad

The Launchpad tab can be found in the top-left corner. By default, it displays a list of your Pull Requests, WIPs and Issues for the selected Workspace directly from your Hosting Service and Issue Tracker.

Connect Integrations

Integrate your repositories, issues, and pull requests with the Launchpad 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.

  • PULL REQUESTS: 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.
  • ALL: Shows all pull requests, issues, and WIPs for the repositories in selected Workspace.

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.”

Personal or Team view

The Launchpad can be viewed in Personal or Team mode. Personal mode displays only the items where you are involved (created by you, assigned to you or created by you), while Team mode shows all pull requests and issues for the repositories in your Workspace – giving you a high level view of your team’s coding efforts. You can toggle between these views by selecting the corresponding icon in the top right corner of the Launchpad.

Note that Personal mode allows to see all items where you are involved in the remote hosting service, without limiting to a selected Workspace (select None in the Workspace dropdown). But Team mode requires a Workspace to be selected.
