Key Features of ALTO

Before diving into the benefits of ALTO for Tech Leads, let's first examine some of its key features:

  1. Slack reminders for merge requests and pull requests: Receive Slack messages (DM or channel) about merge requests and pull requests that are pending merge to default branch and been waiting for too long. Promote one of the key Continuous Delivery practices - smaller changes shipped more frequently.
  2. Get full visibility into the day-to-day work of a team: ALTO offers a centralized management dashboard, giving Tech Leads real-time visibility into progress, milestones, and deadlines. ALTO collects Merge Request analytics and feedback about day-to-day work, combined with DORA metrics, giving YOU a full view of the dev team in a single place. This means you don’t have to waste time digging through this data.
  3. Effortless Continuous Improvement: Set YOUR goals based on YOUR historical data, not some “industry standard”. This baseline helps team to be 5% better this sprint, then last sprint. Continuously improve team’s ways of working and align with the entire tech organization.

You can review this feedback from all team members who worked on a task and discuss it during retro. No more 'I forgot what I wanted to mention' moments during retrospectives.
