Before starting any work, you should ensure developers take a look at your Application Insights data to make sure everything is performing correctly.

Most developers check only this first item before starting their work:

  1. Check Unit Tests are Green


Figure: Tests are green. I'm ready to start work... or am I?

More advanced teams check their application insights data as well. This includes:

  1. Look for any new Unhandled Exceptions

See Do you know the daily process to improve the health of your web application?

App Insights Failures

Figure: Unhandled Exceptions - Is there anything you don't know about here?

  1. Look for any obvious performance issues (Server then client).
