Getting started with Stepsize is easy. Follow these 3 simple steps to start addressing your technical issues and increase your team velocity.
Select any piece of code, right click, choose Technical Debt > Create an Issue.
Describe the debt you're reporting and select the team responsible for it.
By default, issues are sorted by priority. This makes it easy to see the top issues in your codebase and plan their resolution.
To set up priority or vote on the issue, click on the issue to open it in the web app or in your editor.
📌 Note that the same prioritisation features are available in your editor.
💡 Quick tip: when you talk about technical issues with your stakeholders try focusing on the business impact of the problems, e.g. talk about velocity, security, or how reducing technical debt will impact customer satisfaction.
Done! You’re one step closer to reducing technical debt, having a healthy codebase, happy engineers and customers!
