I'm looking for a web based tool to capture the input of multiple people across multiple locations
- 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.
- I spent some time working w/ Carbon Five a few years ago, and they use a self-built tool called Stickies.io. 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.
- Alex Potrivaev made this productI 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.
