Today, we are announcing the beta of the new file tree experience for pull requests!
- Jump between files more quickly
- Understand the size and scope of the change before you start reviewing
- Focus your review by filtering the tree on part of a file or folder name
How to use the tree
On the Files changed tab of a pull request, click a file in the tree to see its changes.
To filter the tree, type into the Filter changed files text input. File names matching this input and all files under a folder name matching this input will be shown. You can also filter the tree by file extension, viewed or not, owned by you or your team, and more using the File filter menu.
To hide or show the tree, click the toggle button above the tree.
Note: The file tree only appears if the pull request has at least 2 changed file and your browser window is sufficiently wide. During the beta, you can disable the tree completely via the feature preview dialog. When disabled, you will no longer have the option to hide or show the tree from the pull request page. If you change your mind, you can re-enable the tree in the feature preview dialog.
