Timeboxing helps keep team members on track to make meetings more efficient.
Only the facilitator can manage the timer. All participants in a retrospective can see the countdown.
To use Retrium's timeboxing feature
- Click the timer icon in the bottom navigation bar
- Use the number keys or arrows to set the desired amount of time, then click Start timer
- You can add a minute by clicking Add minute
- Once the timer has been set, you can reset the timer by clicking Reset timebox
Timeboxing is always recommended during the Discuss phase of the retrospective but can be used during any phase as a way to keep team members engaged and the discussion on track.
