Report debt directly from your editor while you work.

Whether you just lost some time due to tech debt, debugged an issue caused by tech debt, or took a shortcut due to time pressure, we've got you covered.

And since context is king, your debt reports will be visible to you and your teammates right alongside the relevant code.
