Secret ingredients to quality software


Do you know the four standard email types?

Last updated by Tiago Araujo on 01 Nov 2018 12:09 am (over 2 years ago) See History

All business emails (that are useful) should be in one of the four following formats

  1. FYI- to spread information

    • Daily Scrum - to report on daily progress in a Sprint
    • Sprint Review/Retro emails
    • Sprint Planning emails, etc
  2. Tasks- Sending someone numbered tasks

    • To Myself - to send yourself a task, and CC interested parties
    • Tasks to one or more other people
  3. Test Please - to ask for testing and acceptance of a task
  4. Done - replying to a task email, to show details of what has been done

If your email doesn't fit into one of the above categories, it probably doesn't need to be sent.
