"Miro is the new website"
I’m very sure many of us in this community are business owners or work for organisations with a website presence. I too have one that I built and manage for my consultancy.However, based on my experience (and I assume for my potential clients too), trying to get a good overview of a business or an organisation can be a little painful: lots of clicking around and lots of nested information while trying to piece together a coherent big picture. Often times we also resort to sending “one sheet profile PDF” of our business (or CV/resume for job candidates) to whomever may be interested. However, anything longer than 2-3 pages can be a negative for a prospect or a hiring person.What if there’s a way to present all this information on ONE interactive page? One big picture view that gives a wholesome perspective. Presenting my hack: using Miro to tell my company’s story! #miromarketingEverything that we can do and deliver is presented in this Miro board. A use case: While some prospects maybe
Anyone using Miro for Academic Research or Personal Knowledge Management? Looking for inspiration and use cases
Hi all,I’m a knowledge worker.While looking for a good tool to build my Personal Knowledge System (aka Second Brain), someone suggested Miro.I’ve searched a lot, but I wasn’t able to find any use cases related to Academic Research or similar jobs.I see Miro is mainly used for UX Design, meetings and similar.I wonder if and how I could use Miro for complex knowledge, often related to projects.I ask because I’m a visual guy, I really love mind maps, and I see being text only only takes so far when it’s time to learn.

New Ice Breaker: Collaborative Jigsaw Puzzle! 🧩
Looking for a collaborative and fun (or potentially frustrating, depending on the difficulty level ) ice breaker for your next workshop or team activity?I give you:The Collaborative Jigsaw Puzzle Ice Breaker! This is my first ice breaker published in Miroverse, and since I'm not the biggest fan of ice breakers myself, I'm pretty proud about it. //End of bragI got the inspiration for this template while working on the Womxen at Work: Mix & Match template with @Karen M and @Alexis Luscutoff. We were organizing the profile pictures and it felt like a big puzzle at the time. We joked about it and said that it would be a fun activity to try to finish a jigsaw puzzle in Miro.Some weeks later… Ta-daaa!Shout-out to @Said Saddouk for being an endless source of inspiration with his #Mirofication creations!

Liberating Structures using Miro!
I am sure many of you have already used different techniques to create your workshops. I am consistently dipping into Liberating Structures to string together experiences. I’ve used a few for clients and have also actively experimented with a number in Miro to get a sense of where they can work smoothly or otherwise.My list so far:1-n-4-AllConversation CafeTRIZDraw TogetherUX FishbowlWhat Liberating Structures have you tried building with Miro?

Do you sit weirdly when you work too?
When you see me on a Zoom call, you’ll notice that I often put my hands on the arms of my chair and lift myself up for a moment, but you don’t see why. Below the video frame, I’m shifting my legs and adjusting my body so I sit cross-legged. Otherwise, I sit on my right foot while my left leg is bent, my left foot is flat on my seat, and my left knee isn’t far from my chin. That’s how I’m sitting now as I type this, with my left arm wrapped around my left knee to reach the keyboard. It sounds so bizarre as I write it out, but these two ways of sitting are the only ways that I can be comfortable while I work. Interestingly, sometimes these postures make me sit up straighter and lean forward so I look more energized on camera. In contrast, on the rare occasions that I sit with my feet flat on the floor, I look higher status because I take up more space in my chair, or I look uninterested and too cool for school because I lean backward and slouch like I’m in the front row at a movie thea
Using Miro as the knowledge base, possible?
Do distributed/remote teams use Miro as a knowledge centre? I simply wish to store somewhat unorganised notes from Slack somewhere. It would be cool to add visual stuff and keep them tidy in one place. Do you believe it would be a smart idea to use Miro as an all-in-one silo for all company knowledge and processes, and notes. As a founder of a young startup I try to keep the budget lean. It would be great if we could avoid paying extra for tools like Notion or Confluence. Please share your thoughts.

Building and running a Miro board for a live online training workshop
I have spent a lot of time lately translating my in-person training workshop content into a collaborative live online training environment. I've read and seen plenty of best practices from other sharers (thank you!) and created the boards as you can see below. I also managed to deliver a session of this 2-hour live online training workshop with business partners in another country this week. Here are my learnings from that opportunity: Less is seriously more! Miro is such fun to use and I actually built lots of engagements and activities for this session. I probably ended up using 50% of what I built. In an online environment, it takes probably 50% more time to complete activities and discussions than offline. The good thing is I can easily see what's next on my board and skip content/discussion as necessary. Give plenty of ramp up time! The participants love the experience of using Miro, the interactivity and the engagement throughout the workshop. To get to this stage, however, means
Miroverse Challenge: Agile Games 🥳 Postponed to Autumn 2022
Hi Miro Heroes, You may know that this April has been all about Agile 💡 We’ve had loads of amazing conversations and attended insightful events run by you — our amazing community members 🎉🎊After some thought and brainstorming with Miro’s Lean- Agile Evangelists group here, we decided that it would also be loads of fun to run an Agile Games templates challenge. What are Agile Games? 🤔‘Agile Game is a fun activity that helps you learn something about Agile or helps you get your work done.’@Richard Kasperowski For inspiration, take a look at some Agile Games templates already available on Miroverse or read some games ideas in this thread. Agile Point Game by @Richard Kasperowski; Games by @Michael de la Maza; Games by @Agile Games With James; Piggybank Scrum Simulation by @Ellen Hermens; Kanban Pizza Game by Flowana.

How are you using your Miro Verified badges?
Hi all, It’s been a few weeks since we launched Miro Verified, a way for you to earn skill badges on Miro Academy. How are you currently using those badges today or how would you like to use them in the future?I’ve added my badges to my LinkedIn profile as a way to share my skills with Miro.
What are your top tips for rapidly and smoothly onboarding new participants in a live workshop?
Like many of you, I am using Miro for live online participatory workshop events. Almost all of the people attending my events are brand new to Miro, and by far the most difficult part of the workshop is getting them over that first hurdle of learning how to use the tool well enough to participate. Half of the difficulty is teaching them what they should avoid doing by accident! This is much more difficult for people who are not digital natives, and in larger groups it is almost guaranteed that at least one participant will be lost and frustrated. What have you tried? What worked best?
Show us your WFH workspace
I have been working from home for almost 3 years now and it has been a struggle to find that lucrative work-life balance. Previously, I was in a 1 bedroom apartment and I had to work at my dining room table or a tiny space in my living room and it was hard to get away from work at the end of the day and I experienced intense burnout. Recently I moved into my first home (YAY!) and it was a MUST that I have my own office space and now I feel so much better. I know not everyone has this luxury but you’ve made it work. So, I’m asking that you share your WFH space. What makes it great? What do you wish you had? Any tips to make a non traditional work area well...workable? Here’s mine. I’m obsessed with Funko pops and they keep a smile on my face. My “co-workers” also keep me sane when I’m alone in this room most of the day. Looking to get some artwork soon! Some of my co-workers
LaTeX and Math Editor Tool
Hi Everyone, I’ve written a Miro addon that renders LaTeX math expressions to images you can then drag and drop to your boards. It also includes the option to toggle the input mode from plain tex to the excellent MathLive equation editor widget.I’m looking for a few test users to give some feedback on the UI and iron out any bugs.Addon url is https://miro.com/oauth/authorize/?response_type=code&client_id=3458764526714594504&redirect_uri=%2Fconfirm-app-install%2F Code is here: https://github.com/grady/miro-latex This is under active development, so it could break at any moment.I hope people find this useful.
