The dashboard is your primary method of accessing review requests. It displays detailed information on review requests at a glance, and allows filtering review requests.
After logging in to Review Board, you’ll be taken to your dashboard. You can always get back to it by clicking Dashboard on the navigation banner near the top of the page.
Review Requests List¶
The main area of the dashboard lists the review requests belonging to that particular view. This is a detailed, sortable, customizable list.
Clicking on any review request in the list will take you to that particular review request, while clicking on a submitter’s name will take you to the list of review requests submitted by that user.
The review request list can be sorted by clicking on a column header. Clicking once will sort the column in ascending order, and clicking a second time will sort that column in descending order. The column will have a little up or down arrow indicating the sorting order. You can click the X next to clear sorting for that column.
The dashboard provides two-level sorting. You can primarily sort by one column but in the case of multiple entries for a particular submitter, timestamp, etc., you can have secondary sorting on another column. This is set by simply clicking one column (which will be the secondary column) and then clicking another column (which will be the primary).
The primary column is indicated by a black up/down arrow, and the secondary column is indicated by a lighter grey up/down arrow.
Sorting options are saved across sessions.
Columns in the dashboard can be reordered by clicking and dragging the column. The columns will reorder as you’re dragging to show you the new layout, and when you release the mouse cursor the order will be saved.
Different users have different things they want to see in the dashboard. You can change which columns are shown and which aren’t by clicking the pencil icon to the right of the columns. A pop-up menu will appear showing which columns are shown and which aren’t.
The following are available columns you can choose from:
Shows the branch information listed on the review request.
Shows the bug IDs listed on the review request.
Shows a count of the removed and added lines of code in the latest revision of the diff.
Shows the timestamp of the last diff update. This is color-coded to indicate the age.
Diff Updated (Relative)¶
Shows the timestamp of the last diff update, relative to now. This is color-coded to indicate the age.
Shows the timestamp of the last update to the review request. This is color-coded to indicate the age.
Last Updated (Relative)¶
Shows the timestamp of the last update to the review request, relative to now. This is color-coded to indicate the age.
Shows a green comment flag if you have any unpublished comments on the review request, or a blue comment flag if you have published comments. This allows you to quickly see which review requests you’ve addressed.
