Frequently Asked Questions

What's a retro?

'Retro' is short for retrospective. Retrospectives are used by software teams to reflect on their recent work, with the aim of identifying where they can improve, and--more importantly--of generating action items that will help them make those improvements.

How much does RemoteRetro cost?

Zero! Zilch! Nada! It's FREE.

Who can use RemoteRetro?

Anyone with a Google account of any kind can enter a retrospective!

My team is entirely colocated. Should we use RemoteRetro?

You certainly could, but we don't recommend it, as there's no substitute for face-to-face communication. Use a whiteboard!

Where can I learn about planned features and updates?

Our backlog is public, and resides in GitHub issues, which can be viewed in priority order via the wonderful ZenHub Chrome extension.

How many people should participate in a retro?

Ideally, a retrospective will contain no more than 10 people. Exceed 10, and participants will check out because they feel they can go unnoticed. If you can, keep the numbers low!

How can I submit feedback on my experience?

Bugs and feature requests can be filed via GitHub issues at or via email at
