A daily standup meeting, or scrum, is a short check-in meeting that happens in the morning of each business day. Its purpose is to find out the results of the previous day's work, to get each team member to plan their day, and to give everyone the chance to get help with anything they're stuck on.

This checklist will help you track attendance, note down any blockers, review your team's progress, and run the meetings in a structured way.

Use the sub-checklists and text fields to keep notes as you go through the meeting.

Record the meeting details

First you need to record the date of the meeting for future reference. Do so using the form field below.

If there are absent team members, please make note of why.

Staging Review

Review the issues in the Staging/QA column in JIRA. Filter JIRA by the assigned members and go through everybody's issues one by one.

If anyone has anything on staging that has been presented to the team, it should be done so now.

Does anyone have any 5-8 pointers to discuss?

Try to give some background about the issue and what you plan to do to implement it.
