"Targets" helps you translate uncovered opportunities to action by setting measurable targets within Waydev, visualizing and tracking progress to hit all your goals. You can set targets for each metric and improve the effectiveness of your teams for each category of metrics: culture, activity, and efficiency.

There are two ways to set targets:

How to set targets from the side-bar menu

To set targets, navigate to "Benchmarking" in the side-bar menu and click "Targets."

Add a value for each metric by typing it in or with the help of the arrows. For each metric, there is a suggested value if you hover over it.

How to set Targets from the Targets Dashboard

Navigate to "Targets Dashboard" in the "Dashboards" section of the side-bar menu.

Click "Go To Target Settings".

The set of metrics in each category are:


  • Follow-on Commits - the number of code revisions once a Pull Request is opened for review.
  • Knowledge Sharing Index - measures how broadly information is being shared amongst a team by looking at who is reviewing whose PRs.
  • Reviewer comments / PR - the number of reviewer comments per Pull Request.
  • Thoroughly reviewed PRs - calculated by dividing the total number of thoroughly reviewed merged pull requests by the total number of merged pull requests an individual or team was involved in.
  • Time to first comment - the time between when a Pull Request is opened and when the first engineer comments.
  • Unreviewed PRs - the percentage of pull requests submitted that have no reviews (comments from assigned reviewers or simple approvals).


  • Commits per active day - the average number of commits an engineer makes in an active day (any day when a developer committed code)


  • Efficiency - the percentage of all code contributions excluding Churn.
  • Iterated PRs - the percentage of merged pull requests that have at least one follow-on commit made (any commit made after the initial pull request was created).
  • PR Iteration Time - the average elapsed time between the first pull request comment (excluding the pull request submitter) and the final commit made on the pull request before being resolved.
  • Time to merge - the average elapsed time between the pull request creation and the pull request merging.

Keeping track of targets

To keep track of your Targets, visualize them in the Targets Dashboard from the Dashboards section in the sidebar menu.

Here there will be displayed all the targets you've set in a color-coded dashboard.

Green: Going well

Red: Action needed

Yellow: Attention needed

Blue: No target set


When you select a single team, the Targets Dashboard will display the targets set for that specific team. If you select two or more teams, the Targets Dashboard will display the targets set for the entire company.

You can view all the targets you set in these dashboards for each category: Culture, Activity, and Efficiency
