Mark is the word we use for an entry that you make to capture your activity, including the value delivered.

You can make a ‘mark on your agile journey’ about anything you wish. You will find the mark icon in different forms throughout the Mind Settlers adventure app.

Use marks to capture your progress on Mind Settlers journeys. You can also mark a practice or guide to capture the value it delivered.

Use marks regularly if you want to answer these kinds of questions:

How valuable are your contributions at work? Which activities are the most valuable and deserve more focus? What improvements could you make to your work processes to increase the value of your contributions?
