Introducing Approval Workflows

The feedback we’re most proud to consistently get from our customers is how Avo makes collaboration across teams so much easier. Bringing together engineering as well as data and product team is no small feat and we are always working to continue streamlining that process. Creating the right workflow, that works for everyone involved, is how successful product companies today operate. We’re excited to tell you more about how to make collaboration within Avo even more seamless. 

Enable SSO on Your Workspace

Anyone on your team can log in using SSO. There's no need to send invite links anymore, or set up each individual team member.

Contact us to set up your Google or SAML SSO and start collaborating more effectively!

Protect Main Branch 

Worried about accidental changes being made on the main branch with this influx of new team members now on your Avo workspace? Configure your workspace to disable direct changes on the main branch – and require at least one approval from a colleague before a branch can be merged.

Introducing Approval Workflows

We are thrilled to tell you about our approval workflows. Have your peer reviewed to maintain the data quality you've worked so hard for.

If you're still working on a branch, keep it as a draft. Ready for review from your team? Ask them to review by updating the branch status to Ready for review. Happy with the suggested changes? Approve them!

Add Branch Status

Now you can update the status of your branch and notify all branch collaborators that the status just changed. Below is how we at Avo think of the approval workflow:

And Finally, Comment on Specific Items

On the branch review screen, you can now comment on specific items. This is one of our most highly requested features of them all, and it’s now live!

Comment on specific item changes on the branch review screen 💬

For future reference all discussions from the branch review screen are kept in context of the item after the branch has been merged.

Now Live!

Review workflows are now live on all Avo workspaces, with approval workflows available for upgraded accounts.
