Team Rooms are core to the Retrium experience. A Team Room is where your team will go to facilitate and participate in retrospectives, create and track action plans, and view your retrospective history.

About Team Rooms
Only Org Admins and Org Managers can create new Team Rooms and delete Team Rooms. They can also add members to Team Rooms they're not a part of. All additions/removals of Team Room Members (along with other actions) are logged in the Team Room Activity Log.
Each distinct team you work with will want its own Team Room to ensure the information shared is secure and only shared with the members of that team. If you're a ScrumMaster or Agile Coach that works with multiple teams, you will want to have a Team Room for each separate group you work with.
Team Room Navigation
Team Room Navigation consists of five tabs:
Home: Start a retrospective from this page and view outstanding action items.
- Retrospective: This is where your retrospectives will take place. Learn more about facilitating a retrospective or participating in a retrospective on Retrium.
- History: A visual and interactive history of retrospectives run within the Team Room.
Members: The list of users who have or are pending access to the Team Room. The member list also lets you know who is online in the team room. Anyone who is a Team Room Member can invite others to the Team Room.
Settings: Here, Org Admins and Org Managers can change the Team Room visibility to private, org-wide, or public and delete the Team Room. Any Team Room Member can also change the name of the Team Room if needed here.
Private/Public/Org-Wide Team Rooms
If the option to create a public Team room is unavailable, your organization may have public Team Rooms disabled (Business and Enterprise Edition).
Use caution with public Team Rooms as anyone with the link can join and view the information in the Team Room.
What are private Team Rooms?
Private Team Rooms require team members to log in to Retrium with a verified account.
Participants must be invited by email through Retrium or granted access to the Team Room by another Team Room member.
Information shared in the Private Team Room is secure and only shared with those in the members list.
What are org-wide Team Rooms?
Org-Wide Team Rooms require team members to log in to Retrium and be part of your organization to access.
Only users (aside from Guest Users) who have access to your organization can access an org-wide Team Room.
What are public Team Rooms?
Public Team Rooms allow anyone with the Team Room link to join retrospectives; no sign-in is necessary.
- Public Team Rooms are ideal for inviting teammates to test Retrium during the free trial or for using when large groups of participants need to join a team room.
- A public Team Room can be switched to a Private Team Room without data loss.
Allocated vs. Available Team Rooms
The information in this section pertains only to Team Edition. For Business and Enterprise Edition licensing information, please see this article.
What are allocated vs. available Team Rooms?
An allocated Team Room is a public or private Team Room that is open and available for teams to run retrospectives.
- When a Team Room is deleted within a billing cycle (monthly or annual), your organization will have a paid Team Room available. This available Team Room will be used if a new one is created.
- If no Team Rooms are available when creating a new Team Room, you will be charged a prorated amount for that Team Room for the remainder of the current billing cycle.
How can I monitor allocated vs. available Team Rooms?
You can view the number of allocated and available team rooms from your organization's Team Rooms tab.
How can I delete a Team Room?
What happens when a Team Room is deleted?
The deleted Team Room is removed from your organization, and your organization loses access immediately. If you are an Org Manager or Org Admin and deleted a Team Room in error, please contact us!
