Overall Satisfaction with Parabol
Parabol is an invaluable tool for group collaboration and cohesion with coworkers, enabling seamless virtual retrospectives while working remotely. The retrospectives follow an easy process that helps with moderating and really emphasize what is important at the current moment. Parabol also offers planning poker which I found to be very well designed. The poker impressively shows the votes that have been cast and the final decisions made.
- Virtual Retrospectives

- Intuitive Dashboard
- More Template Options
- Managing Multiple Teams
The capability to create reflections and comments while maintaining anonymity is a very useful feature that contributes to group engagement without individuals feeling that they have to censor what they say. Parabol's anonymous functionality promotes honest discussion and feedback that most likely would not occur when employees feel that their input would not be taken seriously.

Parabol is suitable for working configurations of all kinds, in-person, fully remote, or a hybrid work setup, employees can benefit from the software regardless. The retrospectives are effective when applied to an actual project or when used as a mock retrospective. The icebreaker question is also very useful as it helps establish the mood moving forward.
