CodeStream has sophisticated algorithms that automatically move codemarks to the right location as the code changes. Sometimes though, codemarks get disconnected from the code and the best approach to keep them relevant is to manually attach them to the right code block. Scenarios where that situation is applicable include relocation to a different file, or a file being renamed, among others. This new feature allows you to retain knowledge about your code in the correct context.
Also new is the ability to click on codemark links embedded in external issues within issue trackers, such as Trello, Jira or Azure DevOps. As is the case in our integrations with Slack and Microsoft Teams, within the issue itself, users can now click to jump to the codemark’s web page, the codemark in their IDE, or the code block in GitHub, GitLab or BitBucket. This creates a bidirectional link, allowing codemarks to be viewed in the context of choice.

CodeStream helps development teams discuss, review and understand code. CodeStream links comments and issues directly to the code blocks they refer to, making them instantly available to everyone on the team.
Discussing code can be difficult which is why it doesn't happen often enough.
Schedule a personal demo with our product team and see how facilitating code discussion can streamline your team's code reviews and improve the quality of your code base.
