What's the best tool for capturing/documenting team retrospectives?

I'm looking for a web based tool to capture the input of multiple people across multiple locations

    Free for teams and we use it with a few distributed teams to manage our tasks and notes in workspaces, to track team and project progress. Some good use cases on

    I like to use Quip for this. Can send out a shared doc, make edits & comment on each. Also useful for having meetings with a remote team. Everyone can edit/see changes at the same time.

    I'm a huge fan of dropbox paper. Much faster and lighter-weight than Google Docs.

    Teams use Slite to document and organize their retrospectives, processes and anything that should be written down really :) features include: a real-time editor, channels to organize your docs, comments, public shares + other sweet stuff!

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    It comes with a slick WYSIWYG editor which allows collaboration in real time. Different workspaces can be created for each team, and documents can be clustered by topic so it's pretty easy to navigate. We have a few remote team members who get instant notifications whenever they are tagged in a document or a comment, and integrated with Slack is works perfectly. Oh, and the best part is that they offer a free subscription plan:)
    Nuclino is a great documentation tool. It serves as a team wiki or a knowledge base and is super easy to use. Highly recommended.

    Lead Honestly is my go to for team management, specifically as a leader. It helps facilitate all of our 1-on-1 meetings, provides a pulse of how the team is doing, and tracks action items we need to do.

    I used ProProfs Knowledge Base software for something similar. You can give it a try. The tool is cloud-based and allows multiple people from different locations to work together on a centralized document. They can share inputs, edit, review, and access the content across various devices and browsers. The best thing is that it comes with a Forever Free plan that gives you access to its basic features. For more advanced features, you can upgrade to its enterprise plan.

    At the risk of being perceived as boring, I'll suggest Google Docs -- it does the job well (multiple collaborators, suggesting mode, history of revisions etc.) and works with Drive (which we use for all our docs storage). I also especially like their mobile apps, which make searching and editing really easy. One thing we've been doing for individual retros is to have a table (Agenda, Notes, Action items) for each review, and then doing a quick recap from the previous time at the start of the meeting. This helps maintain some continuity and to build the habit of acting on these feedback items after the end of the meeting.

    The fastest way to sync your team with ongoing projects

    You can give winio a try. It's crazy simple to start working on it. You have projects and inside of it attachments, tasks, and discussions. It doesn't have a ton of features that you won't use anyway. It just does its thing.

    I spent some time working w/ Carbon Five a few years ago, and they use a self-built tool called You can add remote collaborators, color-code notes to represent your different categories, and export the results as a csv at the end of the meeting. And it's free.

    I think Teambit is really good for this job (disclosure: I’m one of the co-founders). It can help you to run regular retros with lightweight surveys. You’ll be able to effortlessly gather the opinion from everyone in the team (text and reaction-based), see it all in a single place and analyse it over time. And on top of helping with retros, it can empower your team to holistically improve performance by making feedback a daily habit.
