New Retro Interface πŸŽ‰

I wanted to let you know that big improvements are… here! I've been working on this for months, and the new retro UI is ready.

Rewritten in React, it's far more reliable, nicer to use, and allows for more options.

Now, you're able to select from a few preset retrospective meeting types. I'd love to hear if these work for you, or if there are formats that would make your meetings better. Hit me up at mark@remoteretro.io.

The new Retro interface is also a lot nicer. More features and improvements to come with this soon.

User and invitation management

I wanted to let you know that big improvements are coming, but first up is the ability to uninvite team members.

A small improvement, but it's the first of a raft in the pipeline. A new/improved retrospective meeting interface, additional retrospective formats, and soon integrations with your project management tooling.

Performance and Authorisation Issues

I wanted to let you know that we're across the performance problems of late. During an upgrade, I'd inadvertently messed up the connection to the cache, stopping any caching from happening. I've deployed a fix, and confirmed it's working, and performance seems to have stabled out.

Also, I was working on the authorisation system, and introduced a bug. I've deployed a fix, but have a plan to simplify and rework the authorisation system.

Sorting by β™₯

A request from a user, I've added the ability to sort your retro's items by the number of 🧑.

Renaming Retros

A request from a user, I've added the ability to renaming Retros.

Set it to a useful name (rather than a timestamp), like "the January 'How did support go over the festive season?' Retro", or whatever works for you!

Thanks to Adam Nowak from https://netguru.co for the suggestion! πŸ‘πŸ»

Soon, you'll be able to name them as you create them; there's a lot of new features in the pipeline 🀫.

Custom avatar uploading

I wanted to let you know we've just shipped a new feature; to allow you to upload your own avatar.

Now, when you invite your team, for each user it'll see if there's a custom uploaded avatar first. If there's not, we'll try a Gravatar set up for that email address, and if all else fails, we'll generate you a default image with their initials.

You can upload a new avatar in your personal settings.

Performance improvements

I wanted to let you know that I've implemented a number of performance upgrades to the app; you should see the performance has improved over the last month or so.

Performance problems

I've heard back that the performance has been sub-optimal, and wanted to let you know that we're looking into it.

I've been off deck for a while because of an accident with a table saw blade and my fingers. πŸ€• Everything will heal fine, but my typing speed has dropped a bit!

Better default avatars

I've had feedback that the default avatars were pretty annoying; if everyone had the default Gravatar swirl, how do you figure out who is who?

I'm planning to add avatar uploading soon, but in the meantime, we've added better default gravatars; they'll now show you the initials of each team member!

We've added anonymity πŸ•΅οΈ

I heard that anonymous retrospective talking points were a missing feature, so we had to add it.

With team retros, you can now de-assign the talking point items, or create anonymous ones.
