What is a Daily Digest?
A daily digest notifies a Slack channel daily about your most active story, stuck work, and pull requests with a lot of discussion. These can be configured for your specific teams, and sent daily via Slack. This is a wonderful tool to assist in daily stand-ups.
Daily Digests Include:
Most Active Story
The story that experienced the most Git activity the previous day. Actions may include committing new code, opening, reviewing, and/or merging pull requests.
A story that has pull requests that are either waiting a long time for a review or have reviews that are taking a long time to complete. This story probably needs a team discussion and collaboration in order to move forward and be released thus a good subject for the daily stand-up.
Pull Requests With A Lot Of Discussion
Pull requests that include a lot of discussions are usually pull requests that have controversy around them. When the owner of a pull request and the reviewer/s can't agree on actions that are needed in order to approve a pull request, it is probably important to discuss them with the team. Notifies the channel daily about your most active story, stuck work, and pull requests with a lot of discussion.
