Merge Pull Request but keep working on codereview

As I understand it correctly, the only way to do a codereview is using a pull request. Is there a way to merge the pull request but keep the codereview open?

In our workflow it's more important to quickly merge the changings into our develop branch rather than waiting before the code review is done. But we want to have the codereview afterwards.

Hi Michael,

while best practice is to review and merge small change sets often, you could merge changes from 'feature' and 'bugfix' branches to your 'develop' branch and then create a 'release' pull request from develop to your 'release' branch and review the code then. Any updates and review feedback can flow into 'develop' until the PR is approved and merged to 'release'.

You could then tag the merge commit with your release version or sprint number etc.

Hope that helps, 

Best, Ulrich
