Postfacto is a free, open-source and self-hosted retro tool aimed at helping remote teams.
Postfacto was created by Pivotal Labs by a team in their Sydney office. It was originally available as a hosted SAAS product at postfacto.io but has since been open sourced and focused on being a self hosted product. Postfacto is made up of a React web app and a Ruby on Rails API that provides an API for the front end.

Run retros remotely
Postfacto let's you run an agile retrospective even when your team is distributed across the world.
Record action items
Retros are designed to help the team improve and that's hard to do without keeping track of the actions the team needs to carry out and the also the one's you've achieved. Postfacto tracks the items you enter week to week to help you keep on top of them.
Choose your level of security
You can create private retro boards for your team that are password protected or choose to leave them public so that anyone you give the link to can access it. You can also let users sign up to your instance using Google OAuth or control access with the admin dashboard.
Use your own video conferencing
Postfacto will auto generate you an appear.in room for your team to chat in during the retro but you can also choose to link to your own conferencing tools.
You can deploy your own Postfacto to Pivotal Web Services or Pivotal Cloud Foundry and stay in control of your own data.
