FAQ

Maybe you are wondering ...

Echometer is currently available in English and German.

No. Echometer is a browser-based tool. All you need is a PC, tablet or mobile phone with an internet connection. You can access our app through our homepage, or alternatively, through the link https://my.echometerapp.com/.

The only requirement for using Echometer is a modern browser.

We recommend using the latest versions of, for example, Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge or Safari. We explicitly do not support Internet Explorer, which has been phased out by Microsoft.

The action items can be imported to Jira. The import can be set up by workspace admins through “Workspace management → Integrations” on the app.

The preparation time depends on how much you want to customize your retro. Echometer offers a pre-selection of templates that can help you in preparation.

In our experience, preparation requires 5-10 minutes if you are familiar with the tool. At the beginning you should reserve a little more time to get to know the tool better.

How long a retro takes depends on the experience of the team, the moderation, the range of topics and the size of the team. A retro can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes.

For the first retro, you should take at least an hour. Our tool takes you through the retro step by step and gives you instructions on how to conduct it. If you need help with implementation or, for example, time management, you will find tips and instructions in our Facilitation Guide.
