Monitoring changes introduced by teammates

As a watcher you typically perform the following sequence of tasks:

  • Go to the review and locate the changes.
  • Read comments and optionally participate in discussion.

Locate changes

When someone invites you to take part in a review, you'll receive a notice in your e-mail containing a direct link to that review. You'll be also updated of any consequent changes within this review.

Follow the link to proceed to the review page.

Its main pane shows the Review summary that lists all events and comments related to the review:

The files with changes are listed under the Overview tab. Click on the file name to display the inline diff:

CR click file for diff watcher

From here you can go to a side-by-side diff or view the entire file by pushing the corresponding button.

The files you've viewed (read) are marked with file read icon. Click the icon to mark the file as unread as a reminder to get back to it later.

To return to the summary view, press Esc.
