Rely.io Update Roundup - May 2024

May was an exciting month at Rely.io with the release of a widely requested feature: the Developer’s Homepage (read more below!). This feature was our priority for the entire month where where we focused our efforts on improving the experience for users customizing their experience to best fit their needs.

With the May releases, developers can better plan and prioritize their daily work and contribute to meaningfully improve their team’s velocity.

Reduce context switching and improve developer efficiency with Homepage

Whether you are an individual contributor or an engineering leader, your Homepage in Rely.io helps you keep track of the information that matters to you.

For instance a developer’s typical day starts with catching up on the latest changes within their scope in order to prioritize and plan the tasks of the day.

This usually requires checking up on multiple pieces of information in multiple tools:

  • Github or Gitlab for the code reviews that are assigned to you and your open requests that are waiting to be reviewed
  • Slack for notification of started deployments or Incident Alerts
  • Jira for your ongoing or in review issues
  • Observability tools to check up on your “regular” dashboards (we all did “visual monitoring”)

With Rely’s Homepage, you will find all this information, and more, in one centralized and organized place with default views:

My Services

Keep an eye on your assets and access in one click the information and resources you care about (documentation, infrastructure diagrams, runbooks, etc.)

My Issues

All your assigned tasks in your project management tool in one place so you can prioritize what should be tackled next.

My Git Requests

Keep up with the lifecycle of your open requests and track their review progress (or lack thereof!).

My Assigned Reviews

Never miss a review your teammates are waiting for from you.

My Events (Incidents, Alerts, Deployments, etc.).

Catch up on all relevant and recent events to make an informed decision about what requires your attention.

The information you care about is not surfaced? Add, edit or delete tabs to your liking and customize their content thanks to advanced filters, sorts and group-bys.

Rely Homepage is generally available for all users.

We understand that data exploration preferences are unique.  With Rely's table customization, you can:

  • Save your view, for yourself: Tailor your table layout and controls to your specific needs and save them for future use.
