Retrospect V2

Retrospect V2

Retrospect.team was first launched in June of 2018, a little over two years ago! Hard to believe it’s been that long already. Today we are officially announcing all the new updates and features and calling it version 2 of Retrospect. Read on to learn more…

Introduction

For those of you not familiar with Retrospect.team, Retrospect is a real-time collaboration tool for Retrospectives, Tasks and Ideas. It’s a Kanban board of Sections (topics), Cards (ideas/thoughts) which you create and share with your team members, friends, family or keep it private to yourself.

It’s perfect for remote, distributed teams who need an easy way to quickly collaborate on ideas and to easily run retrospectives after sprints. It’s also flexible enough to use for personal use as a task list, note system, daily planner and countless other uses. We’d love to know how you end up using it.

Board Templates and Pricing

To make it easy to get started, we offer 6 board templates to choose from. Don’t worry though, you can completely customize it to your needs after the board has been created.

We recently released a Pro feature which allows you to save your own custom board templates that you can re-use over and over, makes your life much easier!

We believe in providing quality tools at an affordable price, to get you started we offer a Free Account in which you get 3 boards, unlimited sections and cards. Use this level of account for as long as you want, when ready, you can upgrade to our Pro Account.

For a limited time, we are offering a Pro Lifetime Account for a one time payment of $48. This gives you unlimited boards, advanced permissions and all current and future upgrades. It’s a great value that you shouldn’t pass up!

Members and Organizations

Over the past two years we have continued to steadily grow, we are happy to announce that we now have over 6,000 members and organizations who utilize our services. Over the next two years, we expect to grow significantly faster as more and more people discover us and bring their entire teams onto the platform. We are excited to learn from our customers and always encourage you to provide feedback. 

Public Boards

We released the ability to make any of your boards publicly discoverable, this allows anyone to find your board from our site and if you allow them, they can login and modify your board with their own content and updates.

Have a cool list of resources you want to share with people? Just add them to a board, make it public and share the link. The the type of content you can quickly share with anyone is nearly limitless, we hope you take advantage of this functionality.

My Board

The most important piece of Retrospect of course is your Board, each board contains Sections and Cards which you can modify as needed. We have worked hard to improve the experience and design of this page to make it easier to use while adding new functionality without cluttering up the workflow.

Some new functionality includes:

  • More Permissions for Pro Users
  • Re-arrange Sections
  • Save Board as a Custom Template
  • Export to Excel with ability to Import back into the Board
  • Toggle Edit Mode, which allows you to hide the editor if you want a larger area to show content. Great for presentations.
  • Downvote card option.
  • Lots of other little refinements with more to come!

Permissions

Pro users have the ability to adjust permissions for each board, this includes Section and Card level permissions. We also provide you with a private URL you can send to anyone or make the board public for all to see.

Team Upgrades

This is one of my favorite additions we have added – Team Upgrades. Let’s say you are the manager of a team and you have 10 team members, if you upgrade yourself to our Pro Lifetime plan for $48, you then unlock the ability to upgrade your team members as well and for a much lower price of just $12 each. Each team member you upgrade needs to already be a free member, once they are, simply add their email address/s and then checkout and pay. The next time the login, they will have a Pro account, it’s easy!

Wrapping Up

That is a quick overview of some of the changes we have made over the past couple of years, there are lots of things we have improved and added and will continue to do so moving forward.

  • Added Markdown Support
  • Re-arrange Board Sections
  • Date Modified Ordered Boards
  • Improved Advanced Permissions
  • “Downvote” option on Cards
  • Toggle Edit Mode
  • Save Custom Board Templates
  • Added 10X Planner Template
  • Export and Import Full Boards
  • Improved UI and UX
  • Public Boards

We encourage to swing over and give it a spin, whether you are on a team or need it for personal use, we are certain that you can find a use for Retrospect.

Thank you!

10X Planner Template

10X Planner Template

Today we excited to launch our first new Board Template since the site went live, we are adding in a “10X Planner” board template to help you schedule your day and reach your goals.

What is a 10X Planner? It’s a daily planner created by Grant Cardone to help you to be 10X more times productive by scheduling your day into small, obtainable goals. If you are interested in a non-digital version I’d suggest going to his site and buying his hard-copy version. Visit Site… (We are not affiliated)

👊 Retrospect.team is a simple Kanban styled Retrospective Tool for teams to quickly collaborate on post sprints and project feedback.

The screenshot below shows what an actual 10X Planner looks like in printed form, we have taken this format and matched it as closely as possible to achieve the same effect…

It’s super easy to create your first 10X Planner on Retrospect…

  1.  Create an account or login at https://www.retrospect.team
  2. Click the Plus (+) in the header or click on “New Board” from your “My Boards” page.
  3. In the “Create New Board” dialog, enter the title of your new board, we suggest using the current date so you can keep them ordered nicely for reference later.
  4. Select “10X” Planner” from the “Template” drop-down, and click “Create Board”
  5. Then simply start editing all the cards to fill in the details you need for your day.
  6. Done!

Create your first 10X Planner at Retrospect.team

The screenshot below shows what a blank 10X Planner Board looks like. From here, you can edit each card and in your tasks for each time range, enter your goals and other Journal entries, and when you are done with each card, simply move it to the “Completed” column so you can keep track of where you are in your day (Or if you like the format, just delete the Completed column and leave the cards where they are now.)

If you don’t have any private information on your daily plan, you could consider sharing the board for others to see what you accomplish each day and get support from your friends. Simply use the “Shareable Public Link” option under the “Visibility Settings” tab. NOTE: Other users will be able to edit your shared board, unless you upgrade to our paid plan where you can then access the Board Permission settings to disable editing. 

We hope you enjoy this new template and are able to be 10X more productive!

Introducing: Retrospect Team

Introducing: Retrospect Team

👊 Retrospect.team is a simple Kanban styled Retrospective Tool for teams to quickly collaborate on post sprints and project feedback.

Back on August 6th, 2018 we launched Retrospect.team as a way to internally collaborate on projects and to do retrospectives. We had tried “ideaboardz.com” but it just didn’t have the fit and finish we were looking for and it seems to no longer be supported. We loved the simplicity of the tool though and set out to build our own version.

Retrospect team is very easy to use and can be used in many different ways…

Create a board, share it publicly or privately with your team members or friends, add cards and take action. Build any type of list you need, task list, list of resources, idea list and then share with the world for real-time collaboration.

Start a board with one of 5 templates: Retrospect, Star Fish Retrospect, Six Thinking Hats, ToDo’s or Pros and Cons. Then customize to meet your own needs.

You can create up-to 3 boards for free and if need you can upgrade to our unlimited plan and advanced board features for just $8/mo.
