Until outro, there hasn't been a good tool for running/managing retros, and most retros are a bit slipshod. Outro comes with an opinionated way of running retros which leads to excellent results, and makes running retros the right way incredibly easy.

Pros:

Outro is such an amazing, easy-to-use, lightweight way to run retros. It helps you run retros without any other orchestration needed.

Cons:

Need to be able to sort the issues by priority ascending/descending and also would be nice to sort by other criteria.

I work on a team with the maker. We have been using Outro for our retros for a long time now, and I've seen the tool mature over time and got to participate in providing feedback as it was developed. If I ever move on from my current role, I'll advocate for my new team to adopt Outro to support our retros.

Pros:

Summary email helps keep track of action items & owners. Persistence of unresolved past concerns & action items.

Cons:

Doesn’t track kudos against team members. Doesn’t include additional metrics on the closing screen (e.g. this week's vs. past weeks).

Our team has been using Outro for a year and it's become a crucial component of our culture.

Pros:

Clean, intuitive interface. Makes it easy to assign action items associated with concerns to owners so that change *actually* happens.

Cons:

Would love a Slack integration

I work on the creator's team, we've been using Outro for our retros. It ends the week on such a positive and forward-thinking note as we come together to discuss what went right and what needs to be addressed.

Pros:

- easy to use - lets the team give credit to people - great animation on the kudos button/ending sequence

Cons:

- does not save kudos from and to

Retros are, in my opinion, the most important part of a healthy, productive team.

Pros:

Outro makes retrospectives easy and beautiful. It helps keep track of owners and tasks, which is essential to good retros.

Cons:

Outro focuses on concerns, and while it has a kudos feature, it doesn't track why someone gave a kudo. I like to know what's working!

Its OK OK

Retros is probably the single most effective way to improve the dynamics of any team and this tool guides a user to get going with this in minutes

Pros:

Is the easiest way to get going with Retros on your team

Cons:

Doesn't support multiple user login (yet)

Have used this product for nearly a year with the maker and it has been a key driver for team success and improvement. Can't recommend enough!

Pros:

A great tool to iteratively improve your organization using retros!

Cons:

Would appreciate ability to sort issues in different ways and automatically generate reports after each retro.
