Timeline & key events

  1. 2013

    After noticing a need for proper Agile tools in Jira, Yves Riel created Rekall, an Agile estimation tool. A few months later, he followed up with Checklist for Jira, which is perfectly suited for Definition of Done and Acceptance Criteria. He published both apps on the newly created Atlassian Marketplace.

  2. 2014

    While Rekall is well-liked by a few customers, the concept of estimation via triangulation is too much ahead of its time. The app is removed from the marketplace so that the development efforts can be focused on Checklist for Jira.

  3. 2015

    Checklist for Jira is becoming very popular, even outside of the Agile circles. Checklist for Jira v3 has been released, which is a complete overhaul of the product with a much better user interface. It’s time to move from a side project to a full-blown product and enterprise.

  4. 2017

    In 2017, Jira Cloud picked up steams, so it’s time to create a cloud version of our Checklist for Jira app. The app was presented and released during the Atlassian 2017 Codegeist hackathon.

  5. 2018

    In 2018, something big happened. A courageous soul stepped forth, ready to join our ranks. Our first full-time employee!

  6. 2019

    In 2019, the data center version of our trailblazing app, Checklist for Jira, burst onto the scene. We also launched a new e-learning storyboarding tool called Xunto at the DevLearn event in Las Vegas. While participants loved our innovation, it wasn't the success we hoped for. We can't tell you more; what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

  7. 2021

    In 2021, a thrilling alliance was born. We, together with HeroCoders, embarked on a mission of collaboration.

  8. 2023
