Contribution analytics provide an overview of the contribution events made by your group's members.

Use contribution analytics data visualizations to:

  • Identify group members who are high-performers or may benefit from additional support.

View contribution analytics

To view contribution analytics:

  1. On the left sidebar, select Search or go to and find your group.
  2. Select Analyze > Contribution analytics.

Three bar charts and a table illustrate the number of contributions made by each group member:

  • Push events
  • Merge requests
  • Closed issues

View a member's contributions

You can view the number of events associated with a specific group member.

To do this, hover over the bar with the member's name.

Contribution analytics bar graphs

Zoom in on a chart

You can zoom in on a bar chart to display only a subset of group members.

To do this, select the sliders ({status-paused}) below the chart and slide them along the axis.

Sort contributions

Contributions per group member are also displayed in tabular format. The table columns include the members' names and the number of contributions for different events.

To sort the table by a column, select the column header or the chevron ({chevron-lg-down} for descending order, {chevron-lg-up} for ascending order).

Change the time period

You can display contribution analytics over different time periods:

  • Last week (default)
  • Last month
  • Last three months

To change the time period of the contribution analytics, select one of the three tabs under Contribution Analytics.

The selected time period applies to all charts and the table.
