Geekbot templates shorten the time it takes to build customizable workflows for automated, recurring, or ad-hoc communication and task workflows. The Retrospective template is a pre-built workflow in the Geekbot platform designed to facilitate and simplify your retrospectives and boost team performance.
The Retrospective template provides a structured format for team members to reflect on their past work and identify areas for improvement. Configure the workflow settings, such as the schedule, the participating team members, and the public or private channel in which Geekbot will broadcast updates. This is a scheduled report that helps the team members answer prompts such as What went well?, What have you learned? or What didn’t go so well?.
Geekbot templates are pre-built workflows built on top of best practices and ideas to get you going in seconds. Reflect on what went well and what can be improved. Decide what to focus on next. At the same time reduce meeting overhead and safeguard your time.
Yes, you can track your team’s engagement. Geekbot can post an engagement summary showing team participation and nudge any team member who’s yet to report. Updates include who’s associated with the retrospective, whether someone is OOO or offline, the participation percentage, and a little motivation. Read more here
To access the Retrospective template on Slack or Microsoft Teams, log in to your Geekbot account and click the + New Workflow button. Then, select the Retrospective template from the available options. The workflow will always trigger automatically on the schedule you provided, or you can manually trigger it directly inside Slack or MS Teams by typing report.
The template is free to use for anyone in the Free or Paid plans.
