    Pros:Β 

    - helps PRs to get approved faster

    - leaderboard adds gamification

    - gives understanding what PRs take longer

    - integration with Slack

    Cons:Β 

    - sometimes too many notification, but that can be configured properly with labels.

    If you configure it correctly with all the labels etc., then the tool is doing a great job of reminding you and team of PRs that needs to be looked at.

    Great and easy to use product!

    Pros:Β 

    - Light weight reminder system for keeping the flow of work moving efficiently

    - Provides insightful metrics to team performance

    Cons:Β 

    Configuration UX is early days and sometimes a bit complicated to figure out. That said, Abi is always there to help resolve complications!

    Abi has built a great product that solve a real problem for many teams. We had an in-house version of this being slowly developed but immediately leveraged PullReminders upon discovering it. We've been avid users ever since.

    Pros:Β 

    - helps me maintain OSS projects across many repositories & orgs

    - showcases progress on PRs

    - helps us highlight & close out abandoned PRs

    Cons:Β 

    - product is still fairly new and may require additional enhancement to accomplish your specific goals/needs

    -

    I am an open source maintainer for various projects, mostly smaller ones that were relatively easy to keep track of. When I became a maintainer for https://github.com/sensu-plugins it was overwhelming the number of pull requests to keep track of across that many repositories with a small band of maintainers. Thus we started searching for solutions to help us manage all of this chaos. Our first attempt involved an extensive tagging solutions and creating several "dashboards" based on github searches with states and labels. This certainly helped us bring some order to the chaos and went searching to improve this experience. At the time I discovered this tool I really liked the concept but it was missing key features that would make it viable for our use case. Rather than giving up I reached out to Abi and discussed the issues we were facing and discussed what kind of enhancements were needed to make it viable for our workflows. Abi has always been quick to respond to feedback, bug reports, etc and has been a great partner to work with. Fast forward several months later and it has become the only way I can keep on top of these large OSS projects.

    Pros:Β 

    Easy to notify peers of pull review requests

    Cons:Β 

    Sometimes a complex configuration

    Pull Reminders has really helped our team have more consistent review times, which makes everyone happier!

    Better yet β€” the creator of this project is very responsive to feedback & feature requests. If you have any questions or concerns, they'll respond quickly & efficiently!

    Pros:Β 

    * More code is released & boosted collaboration on our team

    * I don't have to nag my team to review my PRs

    * Leaderboard is πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

    Cons:Β 

    * It could have more options to configure settings

    It's really pretty simple to use. I think the key to having the best experience with it like we have is setting it up based on how your team works and reviews code. We took time to do that and make sure the settings were based on how our team actually works, and that helped us to use it to speed up our deployment rate.
