How to use your PR inbox
As mentioned earlier, Graphite automatically divides your PR inbox into 6 default sections. Let's break down the anatomy of these sections, what each symbol means, and how you can use them to expedite your review flow.
A) Section name
The name of the section that you're viewing. By default, Graphite creates 6 sections: Needs your review, returned to you, approved, merging and recently merged, drafts, waiting for reviewers, and waiting for author
B) PR count
The number of PRs that belong to this section
You can click this icon to search for a PR within a given section
D) Repository selection
By default, each section displays PRs for the default repositories you've selected. If you'd like to have a section for a specific repositories, you can override the default behavior here.
Sort PRs in a section by title, size of change, updated timestamp, and created timestamp. By default, PRs are sorted by when they were last updated.
You can opt into sending section-based digests in notification settings. Toggle this option to include/exclude this section's PRs from the digest.
Adjust the section's name, filter conditions, and whether or not the section's PRs contribute to the count in the favicon of the Graphite webpage.
