How to 10x Your Copy Review Speed Using Livecycle

How to 10x Your Copy Review Speed Using Livecycle

As an asynchronous collaboration platform for development teams, Livecycle relieves some of the most common pain points that developers face when building products together with the team.

We’re taking a look at some common use cases to illustrate how you can “10x with Livecycle” and use your PRs to dramatically improve your team’s communication, collaboration, productivity and overall happiness levels.

In this episode, we put on our developer glasses to see how Livecycle can collect better copy review feedback from the marketing team to tighten the feedback loop and reduce the number of PRs needed to get the next version out the door.

So let’s say I’m a developer.

I work on a feature, merge it and open a PR for review.

Soon, the marketing department starts sending me feedback on the latest copy using a whole bunch of tools.

So I stop what I’m doing, meet, call, email, review and clarify all their feedback. I make the fixes, open a NEW Pull request and send it back to everyone for another round of approval.

Sound familiar??

The good news is that with Livecycle, we’ve made this process quicker and easier.

As soon as I open a pull request, Livecycle automatically builds a shareable preview environment. The link to the PR preview is pushed to everyone on the team, so that they can start reviewing the latest version with a single click.

Each Livecycle preview environment includes built-in annotation tools that allow the marketing team to streamline clear, contextual change requests to the PR itself. For example, they can even edit the copy in the preview environment and submit it to me as a suggested change.

Since everything is happening at the PR level, all of the feedback will be maintained in Livecycle, and it will also appear as review comments in Github. So as the code owner, I’ll be able to get all product review feedback (both technical and non-technical) - in one shot without interruptions and without all those extra PRs and rounds of review.

This is just one of the ways that Livecycle can help the whole team code more, align better and ship products faster, together.
