New feature Improvement Cloud Server/DC TeamRhythm Retrospectives

Complete the feedback loop: schedule retro action items + more (V.9.0)

AUTHOR: The Easy Agile team

Create action items as Jira issues and schedule them into sprints

Retrospectives are an important space for your team to come together to share learnings, celebrate wins and reflect.

But those learnings and ideas for improvement need to be applied if we're to continuously improve.

With this release, you can complete the feedback loop by ensuring those insights are getting turned into action for your team:

  • Convert your action item to a native Jira issue in your team's project

  • Link this to an epic to give it context and save time searching in the Jira backlog

  • Schedule your converted action item into a future sprint - just like any other Jira issue!

With this release, none of your team's valuable feedback is lost and there's no further steps to take outside of the retro board - everything is actioned within Easy Agile TeamRhythm.

Bring some bling and variety to your retro

New template available

Inject some fun into your retro with the latest addition to our retro templates - the rose template. What are the buds of opportunity, thorns in your side and roses that bloomed?
