How to download code under review or quickly switch to branch?

Post by lennartb » Mon 19 Nov 2018 09:07

We are currently evaluating Review Assistant as a replacement for the TFS/VS code review process. One issue that came up is how to "get" the code that is being reviewed. In VS you could view the shelveset that is used for the review and unshelve it into your local workspace. Is something like this possible with RA? Another option would be to e.g. to switch to the branch that is tested in the Source Control Explorer, so the reviewer can open the SLN without manually navigating there.

Another thing:
In VS you could reject/accept reviews as a reviewer, how can this be done with RA?

Review Assistant gets all information from the TFS version control. You can view changes and add changesets or shelvesets to the review in the dialog 'Add Revisions for Review', but our tool does not unshelve shelveset automatically.

Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider it.

Review Assistant uses the another workflow for the review. Now, a reviewer simply clicks Complete Review, and the status of the review is determined automatically based on the type of comments specified. See more about new workflow here
