How do I make an action item?

Creating action items can help keep your team organized and on track to meeting goals

Before you can create an Action Item, you will need to run a retrospective. If you are new to Retrium, you can learn how to run your first retrospective here.

Add an Action Item

  1. Once you reach the Discuss phase of a sticky note retrospective you can create Action Items.

  2. From the right side of the screen, click +Add an action item.  An action item template will appear that everyone in the team room can see. You can edit the existing text, or delete it and start from scratch.
