Overall Satisfaction with Crucible

We use Crucible for our initial code reviews that are done with each defect or feature that we work on. It is used primarily by our department. I am not sure if it is used by other departments or not. It facilitates the reviewing of your peers work.
  • It shows revisions very well. You can easily see what was changed on each commit.
  • I like that you can see how much time someone has spent reviewing your code.
  • Seeing a percentage of things reviewed is also very helpful.
  • It can sometimes be a bit slow to load. A server reboot for us tends to solve that issue. I'm not sure if it is a server issue, or maybe Crucible may have some caching issues.
  • I wish that you could easily stop the review creation process, rather than abandoning it.
  • It has had a large ROI for our team, as it has helped us find issues sooner than we would have had we not reviewed things properly.
I think Crucible isn't quite as clean as Stash/Bitbucket, but it does some things better, like seeing individual commits easier. I also like how stash groups all comments on the overview of the Pull Request.
If you are in a situation where you need to review one another's work, crucible is awesome for that. It especially does well at showing revisions.
