Frequently Asked Questions

What board types can I create?

As well as a standard retrospective format, we also support other formats such as Starfish, Mad - Sad - Glad and the Four L's. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please contact us – we'd love to hear what you think.

This is great, but is it free?

We fund our service by displaying a single, tasteful, developer-focused Carbon ad on some pages. By allowing us to display acceptable ads, you'll be really helping us to continue this work. We plan to keep the service free for our users.

How long is a board active for?

We don't have a time limit, so a board you create could remain active forever unless you (or we) delete it. If you delete a board yourself, it's simply soft deleted, but we may permanently delete it after an extended period of time.

Can I unlock a locked board?

Yes. Once you've locked a board, simply select the option again to unlock it. You'll need to be the person who created the board in order to do this. Please note it is not possible to unlock boards that were created before February 25, 2018.

Can locked boards be edited?

When a board is locked, only the person that created it can continue editing the board and its settings. Please note boards created before February 25, 2018 are not linked to an email address and therefore cannot be edited after being locked.

Can I backup my board?

The only form of backups we feel might be helpful is being able to export boards as a PDF, however most browsers can already do this and we do optimise our stylesheets to support that. If there's another format you have in mind, please let us know.
