Feature Spotlight: Promote Transparency

ScrumGenius’ automated standups help teams communicate better and clear out blockers by improving transparency between team members.

ScrumGenius takes care of the administrative details that usually clog daily standups by letting team members submit information online. This leaves more room in face-to-face meetings to discuss blockers and ask questions, so no one has to scramble for clarification later on.

If you need to edit your standup later on, all you have to do is click the link ScrumGenius sends you when you submit them. This allows you to add any missing details yourself instead of having to bring them to managers.

Once the report period is closed, ScrumGenius sends you an email summary of your team's standup answers to keep everyone up-to-date. Teams can also choose to output the summary in a chat platform channel where everyone can view and discuss it together.

This can help solve problems of accountability for teams, as everyone has a record of completed tasks they can go back to. Now, everyone knows what they’re working on and what they need to focus on next.

ScrumGenius can also help soothe fears of oversight by getting rid of the need to duplicate work in multiple places. Our integrations with tools like JIRA, GitHub and Azure Devops create a single location where teams can collect information. All of this information can then later be viewed by everyone in Team Activity.

For managers, ScrumGenius can give you a better understanding of your team’s productivity. In the Team Dashboard, you can view the standup and participation history of your team and of individual team members. This includes whether they reached their goals and any blockers they encountered.

This functionality allows you to notice patterns in workflow you might have otherwise missed. For instance, you tell whether multiple employees are experiencing the same blockers or if team members are having the same problems repeatedly. This knowledge can enable you to give your team the support they need to be happier and more productive.
