Teaminal is a tool for remote teams to run their agile meetings like standup, sprint planning, and retrospective asynchronously, in Slack or in the browser.
To get started with Teaminal, you’ll need to create an account and invite your team. Here’s how to do it:
- Create an account on Teaminal.
- Go to the Manage Users page and invite team members by email or share the join link.
- (Optionally) go to the Manage Integrations page and connect your Slack, Jira, Github, etc. accounts.
Once your team has joined, you can start running your agile meetings asynchronously.
Standup is a daily meeting where the team gets together to discuss what they did yesterday, what they’re planning to do today, and any blockers they’re facing. With Teaminal, you can run your standup asynchronously, so your team can participate on their own schedule.
See how it works:
To share a status update, click “Share a status update?” on the home page. You can also share a status update from Slack by typing
/standup in any channel, or responding to the standup reminders that Teaminal sends.
Sprint retrospectives are a meeting where the team reflects on the past sprint and identifies what went well, what didn’t go well, and what they want to improve. With Teaminal, you can run your retrospective asynchronously or in real-time - often you’ll want to have some face-to-face time to discuss the items that came up.
Check out this video to see how it works:
To start a new retrospective, click the “Sprint Retro” button on the home page. Each team can configure the questions you want to ask, set the time for the retrospective, and more, go to the Manage Teams page and select the team to configure.
Planning poker is a technique used to estimate the effort required to complete a task. With Teaminal, you can run your planning poker asynchronously, so your team can vote whenever they have some time.
The demo video below shows how it works:
To start a new planning poker session, click the “Planning Poker” button on home page. You can add the URL, title, and description of the task you’re estimating, or if you’re using Jira, you can search for an issue by title or ID.
To configure your story point options, set up reminders for your team, and more, go to the Manage Teams page and select the team to configure.
Backlog refinement is a meeting where the team reviews and prioritizes the items in the backlog. With Teaminal, you can ask your team to review issues and vote on them asynchronously, so your team can participate on their own schedule.
Here’s a video showing how it works:
To start a new backlog refinement, click the “Backlog Refinement” button on the home page. You can choose the questions you want to ask, set the time for the backlog refinement, and invite your team to participate.
To configure your voting options, set up reminders for your team, and more, go to the Manage Teams page and select the team to configure.
