Retrospectives

Available in Mattermost Free and Starter subscription plans. Available for Mattermost Cloud deployments. Available for Mattermost Self-Hosted deployments.

Retrospectives help teams identify areas of improvement in workflows. Each time a playbook is run you can create and publish a retrospective for the team and stakeholders to review. Retrospective components are customized per playbook.

Configuring retrospectives before a run

Open Playbooks and select the Playbooks tab. Select the playbook and then select Edit. Select Templates and scroll down to the Retrospective Reminder Interval and Retrospective Template fields.

You can set a reminder to fill out the retrospective after a run is finished. The configured template is pre-populated in the run’s retrospective.

Use the run timeline to help write an accurate retrospective. Events such as owner changes, status updates, and task assignments appear automatically. Selected posts may also be added to the timeline by using the post context menu.

Create and publish retrospective reports.
