Remove UI elements


I’m planning a workshop with some guest users which are not familiar with Miro, and maybe not even very tech-savvy.

Is there a way to present them with a simplified UI? For example they might only need to place post-its, move already existing objects and draw freehand. The rest of the functionalities of Miro might only confuse them.

I know that there are resources and strategies for ice-breaking and onboarding in the docs, just wanted to check out all the options :)

Hi @Fra as far as I am aware, there isn't a simplified UI option.

My good practice is to have pre-workshop session (20-30 mins) for participants to try out Miro in a facilitated environment. You can take this opportunity to do an ice-breaker and at the same time to learn the Miro tools. This way, it doesn't take away time during the main workshop itself.

If the above is not possible, then create the most simplest board that you can to achieve the learning outcome and spend at least 10-15 minutes to show your participants on how to use those 3 tools (and nothing else.) It's good to remind them repetitively about this.

To do so, use your screen sharing feature in your video conferencing tool such as Zoom or Google Meet so that they can see and understand where and what to click on within Miro.

I hope that helps.

Thanks for the great answer, I’ll do that :)
