Retrospective Blueprint

Retrospective pages help you track team successes and opportunities after projects or at the end of a sprint. Use this blueprint to document what went well, what needed improvement, and assign actions for the future.

The first time you create a retrospective page in a space, Confluence will automatically create an 'index' page, which will list all retrospectives in the space, and add a shortcut to it in the space sidebar.

If you want to quickly create a blank page, hit the Create button in the header; if you want to create a page from a template, hit the Create from template button.

To create a retrospective page:

  1. Choose Create from template  in the Confluence header
  2. Select Retrospective and hit Next
  3. Add participants, change the title if you want to and click Create
    Retrospectives dialogue

The Retrospective blueprint uses the following Confluence features:

Check out how the retrospectives blueprint can be used in the article Create sprint retrospective and demo pages (like a BOSS).

Customise this blueprint

Every team conducts retrospective meetings differently, so you can customise the Retrospective blueprint template to match your team's culture and practices. You can:

  • Edit headings and pre-populated text
  • Add instructional text to capture specific information
  • Add additional sections and content

See Customise blueprint templates for instructions.
