A definition for Agile game : joyful collaborative tool

As "jeu agile" (Agile game immediate translation into French) was felt to be a little bit weird for administrations which have not yet engaged their tranformation  to Agile, the phrase  "outil collaboratif convivial" was used in a question posted on the Questions & Answers forum of the digital market place of French public operators (PLACE) upon a call for tender posted early 2018.

How would you translate back from French to English  "outil collaboratif convivial" ?

Google Transation would say : "friendly collaborative tool"

How about "joyful collaborative tool" ?
