Classifying code review comments

May 12, 2010 at 12:41 AM
Is it possible to have a drop down to classify the code review comments? For example, naming standards, unit testing, compliance to requirements, etc? This would allow me to run reports to gather metrics about the kinds of issues we're having with our code. TIA, Candi

You could customise the work item type (in the xml) to add a field of your own for the purpose of categorizing. This would be outside of TeamReview of course.

Would you like to supply a complete list of the classifications you would use and can see about incorporating into TeamReview.

I customized the work item types and Team Review. Since I had the source, it was pretty easy. We classify our comments with : Completeness, SQL Coding, C# coding, Missed Requirement etc so that we can see the types of issues our reviewers find and our developers miss. We also classify the bugs our testers find the same way so that we can get metrics on how well our code review process finds bugs before they get to the testers.
