Automated Change Reports

While you should easily be able to ask your development team for a summary of changes to the codebase periodically, this is often full of technical jargon or possibly could be selective in the information you are given. With The Code Registry’s automatic reporting tools you receive a full summary that is easy to understand straight to your inbox with every sync of your codebase. 

What you need to know about your development activity, straight to your inbox.

You’re paying your development team or development partner a set amount each month, be that for hours worked or tasks completed. How do you know you are getting value for money? 

That’s where The Code Registry’s change reporting tools are vital. Every time we sync your codebase we will generate a summary report telling you exactly what has changed or been added and by who. This gives you complete transparency and ability to compare what you are paying for vs what is actually being done.

Key parts of a change report...

The primary purpose of a code repository change report is to document and communicate what code changes were made, who made them, when they were made, and why they were made. A few of the key components of The Code Registry’s change reports include:

Overall change summary

Using the same technology as The Code Registry’s AI Analysis dashboard, the first part of your change report will be a simply written summary of the code changes. If you just want a quick overview of what’s happened and who’s worked on what, or you simple want to check that work is being done when you’ve been told it has then this summary is perfect for you. Detailed enough to give you confidence, but simple enough not to confuse a non-technical person.

Code changes

A detailed breakdown of the changes made to individual lines or sections of code within each modified file, typically showing the lines added, modified, or deleted.

Wondering if the developer who you’ve been told is working on a task is actually working on a task? Then within our report you can see the name or username of the developer or contributor who made each commit. 

New issues introduced

If any new security issues of vulnerabilities have been introduced since the last code version, these will be detailed in the report with full details.

These changes will also be time stamped and include a descriptive message written by the author to summarize the purpose of the commit. It should explain what changes were made, why they were made, and any relevant context.
