Reveal Retrospective notes in Slack

Reveal and view retrospective notes with one click in Slack.

What’s it for

Retrospective app empowers the session host to reveal and harness collective insights shared by the team during the meeting. It streamlines the process of identifying valuable patterns and trends in team feedback to drive actionable improvements.

How it works?

The session host, typically the team lead or Scrum master, initiates the reveal after the team has shared their individual insights during the retrospective.
Like any other actions, revealing notes is also done through using smart action buttons in the notification sent by Actioner when the dedicated channel is created.

When the Reveal notes button is clicked, a pop-up form appears, allowing the host to select a specific topic that aligns with the insights shared by the team. 

After selecting the topic and revealing the notes, Actioner automatically sends all the notes related to the chosen topic to the dedicated retrospective channel.

Team members can then see all the insights related to the chosen topic, enabling them to identify patterns and areas that require attention.

During this phase, duplicate insights can be marked by the facilitator, streamlining the discussion. Additionally, valuable insights can be converted into actionable items to be addressed in future sprints.
