You can customize workflows, add or modify elements in the templates, and set up integrations with other tools your team uses.

5. Begin collaborative planning: Start using the platform for your Agile ceremonies. Plan your sprints using the sprint planning templates, conduct daily standups to keep team members aligned, and use the sprint review and retrospective templates to reflect on your progress and areas for improvement.

6. Iterate and improve: Agile is all about continuous improvement. Use the insights and feedback from your team’s usage of the tool to refine your processes and make better use of the software’s capabilities.
