3. Select filters to monitor

You can use existing filters to select tasks and bugs that you want to monitor. Choose one of two modes:

  • Show all — use this for filters that should return empty an result when everything is OK, and for queues of short-term work. For example: “Important open bugs”, “Urgent tasks”, “Bugs to verify today”, and “Bugs to review”.
  • Show changes — use this to track changes in long-term queues of work, like “My tasks”, “Backlog”, and “Recent bugs”.

Each query can have a different level of importance:
