Bring Agile Meetings to Life
Parabol puts remote and in-person meeting participants on equal footing, so you can get your team talking and improving.
Digital Boards and Cards
Take charge of your remote meetings with digital Kanban boards, sticky notes, and Planning Poker™ cards. Bring your work to life in a structured online space that’s accessible to team-mates near and far.
Pick from 40+ popular formats for retrospectives and estimation meetings. Save time preparing for your meetings with well-known favorites like Stop, Start, Continue for retros and the Fibonacci scale for estimates or get creative by building your own templates.
Get the whole team involved in meetings with multiplayer drag-and-drop cards, live task editing, dynamic Agenda Items, emoji reactions, and even discussion threads for quieter team-mates.
Automated Meeting Summaries
Receive an automatic summary at the end of your meeting, so you don’t have to take notes. Catch up quickly if you missed a meeting and track your team’s continuous improvement process.
Get More Done With Focused Discussions
With just a video call, digital whiteboard or shared screen, teams quickly get off track and lose sight of the discussion. Keep teams on track with a structured process and a purpose-built co-pilot.
Keep the conversation on track with a built-in timer. Limit a discussion topic to a few minutes, or set a deadline to gather feedback over a few days or a whole sprint.
Add comments, reply to ideas and react with emoji in your meetings. Use discussion threads to take notes about interesting insights, make suggestions, or ask questions without interrupting the flow of conversation.
Create tasks in Parabol during your discussion and sync them with the tools you already use. Save the effort of logging tasks after meetings.
Build Connections with Your Team
Facilitated Icebreakers (Optional)
Get your team talking with an icebreaker question. Try a randomly selected question at the start of the meeting or get creative and fill in your own. Create a positive atmosphere for your team and build psychological safety.
Team Health Check
Run a lightweight poll at the start of your meeting to check the mood of the room and set the stage. Team members’ votes are revealed anonymously to protect psychological safety.
Encourage open and honest contributions with anonymous retro reflections. Team members can even add anonymous comments in Discussion Threads.

Engage in your own time
Participate in agile meetings in your own time, wherever or whenever that might be. Open activities early and set deadlines for participation. Use discussion threads to add comments in your own time. Then, spend your valuable synchronous time on the conversation.
Do it all from a browser, even on your phone
