Daily Scrum with WordPress, P2 and the Repeatable Posts Plugin

The daily scrum meeting is a concept from Agile software development where teammates each day answer the following three questions:

  1. What did you do yesterday?
  2. What will you do today?
  3. Are there any impediments in your way?

This helps everyone knowing what people are working on and any impediments that need to be quickly dealt with. It’s also a way for each person on the team to establish a commitment for the day and build momentum.

While many teams adopt a standup approach to this meeting (as it helps making it short) it is also possible to do with online and async (with people replying on different times). This is especially useful for distributed teams.

Here’s how we’ve set up our daily scrum to be automated:

  1. We use the Repeatable Post Plugin by Human Made on a P2 theme.
  2. We then added the following filter to only post the Daily Scrum post on weekdays:

This is a simply way to offering the team the possibility of doing Daily Scrum’s without the hassle of having one teammate always do the post. Hope it helps you. Keep rocking!
