Powerful Estimation Tool
This tool offers a few ways to help keep backlog grooming sessions smooth. What I really love about it is how seamlessly we can prepare and execute on our meetings without being disruptive to the development team. The developers can run through prep whenever it makes sense for them, and all their notes and estimates are stored so when we have the meeting, if there are no complex questions, we can run through it in minutes and get back to work.
Legendary Support Team
I've been so impressed by the responsiveness of the team. They've responded quickly to every question and have gone above and beyond in adding some minor functionality to address some of our specific needs. Their commitment to their product and customers is readily apparent.
My team was looking for an integrated solution to make our story grooming sessions run more efficiently. We've been using Agile Poker for over a month and are very satisfied with the product. The asynchronous mode makes it easy for team members to review stories independently and provide comment, especially as we are all working remotely during the pandemic.
Flexible estimation toolkit that seamlessly integrates with Jira
Interactive Planning Sessions
Inspired by Planning Poker®, this estimation method is recommended for Scrum teams that estimate Story Points at the same time. Ideal for both co-located or remote teams. It facilitates discussion and consensus for better estimation accuracy.
Relative Backlog Estimations
This mode is about sorting issues into buckets based on their relative size. Teams set rough estimates, discuss, and select the most accurate estimate for each backlog item during unbiased voting.
Align Teams with Asynchronous Estimates
Recommended for distributed teams but works great for all teams that want to estimate at different times and prefer estimations based on consultation to agree on final estimates.

Flexible estimation values
Easily switch between the most recommended sets of estimation values from a Fibonacci sequence, T-shirt sizes, or create custom values. Check them out and choose the most suitable based on your team’s preference.
Epics and sub-tasks estimation
All session types of Agile Poker support estimating Epics and Sub-tasks. Enable Epics, Sub-tasks, or both under the Issue types dropdown during the game creation process, and you’re all set.
While choosing an estimate, you will see three recent issues with hovered estimate value. The moderator can configure up to three issues from the past, and the team can use them as reference points to avoid the effects of estimation inflation.
It allows estimation based on multiple Jira fields per issue and, optionally, calculates the final score based on those fields. We have provided out-of-the-box support for several popular prioritization frameworks, like WSJF, ICE, RICE, Impact/Ability, or PERT.
Individual votes are not revealed to others while voting is in progress. Only after all votes are cast can the moderator display the votes, ensuring the session runs unbiasedly.
Slack integration is available for Asynchronous session invitations and notifications. Select the Slack option from session creation or configuration pages, connect with a Slack workspace, and select a channel, and your team will receive scheduled communications via Slack.
