Scrum ceremonies play a significant role in the success of agile teams. They guide agile teams in planning, collaborating, and executing their tasks in unpredictable environments. If your Scrum ceremonies are not carefully organized, they can drown out the value they intend to provide.
To help Scrum teams channelize project communications and conduct their scrum ceremonies effectively, we at Zoho Sprints are happy to introduce our new integration with Zoho Cliq.
Zoho Cliq Chat Bar
Contextual communication is the most effective way to communicate and get more done faster. Using Cliq's Chat Bar, you can instantly create a channel within the context of your releases, sprints, and work items in Zoho Sprints. Assigned users will be added by default, and you also have the option to add more participants.
Say hello to the @Sprints bot, your virtual Scrum assistant that notifies your team members of important project updates. Our Sprints bot allows you to map your Sprints projects with channels in Cliq to receive contextualized updates.
Great ideas can sometimes get scattered in conversations. The Add Item message action lets you convert Cliq messages into actionable work items in Sprints. You can upload attachments and update all the other details of your work items without leaving Cliq.
The Sprints bot brings the context of your work items to your channels in Cliq. The bot fetches work items based on the criteria you specify, and you can filter for work items across projects by item type, priority, and assignee.
Scrum ceremonies can overwhelm calendars and become counterproductive when they are not well-organized. The Add Meeting bot action takes care of your scheduling woes, while the Sprints bot triggers a meeting reminder in your Cliq channels.
