Daily scrum meeting template

Track progress toward your sprint goal

Courtesy of our friends at

Use this daily scrum meeting template to help your scrum team provide updates on what they’re working on, share what they plan to work on, and raise any concerns or questions. 

A Daily Scrum Meeting, also known as a daily stand-up, is a fundamental ceremony in Agile and Scrum methodologies. It's a short and focused meeting where the team gathers to synchronize activities, share progress, and identify any obstacles. 

The goal is to foster collaboration, maintain transparency, and ensure everyone is aligned towards achieving the sprint goal.

The daily scrum meeting template helps teams

  • Understand and track team progress in the current sprint
  • Build clarity on the workday’s tasks and remove any roadblocks
  • Hold a quick check-in to make sure the team feels supported and enabled 
  • Improve problem-solving within the team and improve teamwork

How to use the daily scrum meeting template

1. Check-in

Start the meeting by checking in with a quick icebreaker. Each team member should add their name on a sticky note. You can personalize each sticky note with a color to help visualize progress.

2. Use the scrum board space

To keep the space tidy, write down the date, sprint number, and sprint goal at the top of the scrum board.

Then, the appointed scrum master asks each team member to answer the key questions: 

  • What did you work on yesterday?
  • What will you work on today?
  • Do you have any blockers?

Then, import the tasks and issues for the current sprint into the sprint backlog section.

3. Sprint backlog

Import all tasks and issues into the current sprint in the “sprint backlog” section. This is only temporary to show all the tasks and key action items at hand.

Tip: Change the color of the task to the color of the person responsible for the task.

4. In progress

Move tasks that are currently being worked on into the “In progress” column.

5. Complete

Move any tasks that have been finished into the “Complete” column.

6. Blocked

Move any blocked tasks into the “Blocked” column.

If any blockers are identified, plan a meeting outside the scrum to follow up and discuss the issue with relevant team members.

Tips for running a daily scrum meeting

  • Set a consistent time and place: Keeping mindful of team time zones for remote teams, establish a time earlier in the workday to hold the daily standup meeting. Consistency helps establish a routine and ensures everyone can attend without conflicts.
  • Timebox your agenda: Because your daily scrum should only be about 15 minutes, every second matters. Use Mural’s timer feature to easily set enough time aside for a check-in and status updates.
  • Run asynchronous agile meetings: Some teams find it easier to reduce meetings and give more time for deep work. Share the link to the scrum meeting in Mural and give teams the opportunity to add status updates on their own time.
  • Integrate Jira to export tasks from Mural: You can easily integrate Jira to prioritize and plan sessions. Additionally, you can import tasks into Mural from Jira and then export tasks from Mural back to Jira.
  • Delegate tasks to team members: Use sticky note tags to assign and notify team members who are responsible for each task. This helps team members understand who owns a particular part of a project, which improves accountability within your team.
  • Embrace continuous improvement: After a few sprints, assess the effectiveness of your daily stand-ups. Seek feedback from the team to ideate improvements and adapt the process to better suit your team's needs.
