Help me see what stuff exists – add a red thing to indicate some activity

This project is empty other than a few commits.

I think the UI should:

#1 Let me know what stuff is empty

#2 Guide me to any new stuff. In this case since I I have not opened the commits, I would like a red dot (like WeChat – the most popular app in China).

Figure: Adding 2 red dots on the newly added commits by someone else, would encourage me to click on the only useful areas

Comment Combo – Fix selecting ‘All comments’ does nothing

Scenario:

I have a new project, I am a new user, I have not entered a comment.

I open this combo and nothing happens when I click on any of these 3 options.

It is weird for it to do nothing upon any selection.

Can you change it to show numbers like:

  • All comments (0)
  • Active (0)
  • Hide (0)

Even better – replace the 3 choices with the text: “Put your 1st comment on the code”

Comments – Help me comment on the check- in

Dear Product Planners,

I want to add a comment “You need to do smaller check-ins”… where do people put that today?

I’d like to see it on this commits right click menu.

Figure: Allow me to comment on the check-in size

More Info:

I’d love to know why I can *not* comment at the Commit level.

I should be able to say  “Where is the xxx file?” – basically a general comment on the overall commit. I can comment on each file, so why not on the commit?

Figure: After drilling in, there is no option in this “…” that says “Comment”

Help me find the newly added projects

A couple of projects were added today and I would love them to be sitting at the top. Alternatively, give me a sort combo (see red box)

And since I have not opened them, I would like a red dot (like WeChat – the most popular app in China).

Figure: Allow me to sort these projects
