Plan and run your review meeting.

Documentation Type


Teams should not invest much time to prepare the review of the results of an iteration. The Review Doctype allows to take short notes on things the team wants to present. It may also contain information gathered during the review.

Review documents are closely related to Iterations. Therefore they are attached as subdocuments.


The document type review provides the following properties:


Please note that only information about specific properties is provided here. Common document property used by all document types are documented by Document Properties.


Specify where the review takes place.


Log the date of the meeting.


Log the start and end time of the meeting.


List the names of the attendees of the meeting. This is usually the team, but other stakeholders may be invited.


Preparation Items

List all items that have to be prepared to run the review successfully.

This includes reserving the room, provide a whiteboard, snacks and drinks, etc.


Take notes on what the team decided to show to the stakeholders.

You may also add information here during the show. Note what stakeholders give as input during the review.

Overall Assessment

 Document the overall assessment of the stakeholders. Have the iteration goals been met? This area is for a summary.


These are internal notes that are usually not exported and only visible to team members with write access.

But this is not a safe place to store sensible information. It is just a convenience for the reader to not be bothered with notes stored here for the authors for later use. The security level is about suppressing the representation by a CSS style. Therefore consider this as a convenience for the reader, not as a security tool.


The text of notes sections is also indexed.


For a document the references section contains pointers to resources that prove the statements of the document.

Often these proofs are not easily distinguishable from further information. In this case you may want to skip the reference section in favour for the resource list.


For further information please refer to References and Resources.


The resources section provides references to further information to the topic of the document.

This may be information on the internet provided by the resource or information in the team's information systems. Anything the reader of the resource might want to know, may be listed here.
