Include "changed pages" widget in visual review function
Problem to solve
For Parker and Presley this is great, but it takes them too long to navigate to the page that has been changed from the review app. Instead they are more likely to just ask Sasha to show them on their computer or send a screenshot to validate a change. This is less than ideal and leads to lower quality features shipping to customers.
With https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/53390 we provided the ability for users to manually review the visual and application changes within a review app. As a follow up to that, we should port the "which pages have changed" widget from the Merge Request into the Visual Review function. This widget is already smart about what it knows about the MR and the changes, and thus that logic will be the same in the Visual Review function. This replicates that dropdown onto the Visual Review button.
STRETCH: include a tooltip or something about route maps so users of generated sites can more easily make use of this feature.
That way, I can quickly navigate to only / all of the parts of the application that have changed.
Permissions and Security
No changes to permissions from the existing Visual Reviews.
- Let's see how a very large change set looks
- Should work cross browser
- Ideally we test mobile views
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
- We will know this feature was successful by seeing additional usage of the visual review tool after launch.
- The users will be successful when they are closing MRs faster because Designers and Product Managers are finishing User Acceptance Testing sooner.
What is the type of buyer?
