An extreme view for reception areas

Agile projects emphasize the role of communication over the need to document. Information radiators aid in returning feedback quickly. Information radiators have two main characteristics: they change over time and the data presented is easy to digest.

The eXtreme Feedback Panel plugin is one example of an information radiator. It is a highly visual Jenkins view. If the layout is formatted consistently and displayed on a large monitor, it is ideal for the task. Consider this also as a positive advertisement of your development process. You can display it behind your reception desk or in a well-visited social area such as near the coffee machine or project room.

In this recipe, you will add the eXtreme Feedback Panel plugin and modify its appearance through HTML tags in the description.
