Different people care about different things. As a product or engineering leader, for example, you might care less about commits to a feature branch and more about a PR merged to master. Or maybe you want to stay in the loop with what each different product squad is shipping. The "views" feature in DoubleLoop provides you a way to filter for just what you want to see. Combined with our GitHub app and Slack integration, it's a powerful way to send the right notifications to the right people.
The first step to creating views is filtering.
To expand the filter options, click the "Create new view" button or filter icon.
After the filter panel is open, you can do a text search or filter by the "importance" of events.
A lot of the power of DoubleLoop comes from setting up integrations. If you've set up our GitHub integration, try typing stuff into the GitHub search box, like "Master."
You can also search by repo or team member. When you've done a search, your active filters will appear at the top of the filter panel.
When you've set a valuable filter or combination of filters, you can save it as a view. Just click the "Save current view" button. After giving it a name and saving it, it will appear in the left rail for future access.
Important: all members of your DoubleLoop organization will see the same list of views. So if you add a new view or delete one, it affects everyone.
This is where things get really interesting! You can use DoubleLoop to design your own system of signal-rich Slack notifications. Learn more on the page about our Slack integration.
