Tips and Tricks for Diagramming: Shapes & Lines I feel your pain. You can see the whole complex system in your mind… but your hand just can’t get it out into Miro fast enough. Miro is brilliant at making diagramming easy and powerful, but some of the coolest features to help this aren’t immediately obvious. Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite tips and tricks.

Not sure if this feature has been rolled out to everyone yet or not, but the new selected object filtering capability is pretty cool. The ability to select a large number of objects and then just pick the specific type of object which you want to remain selected is very useful. However, I have just one question… what do Dark Elves (“Drows”) from Dungeons & Dragons have to do with Miro ?
Hi Everyone, Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a nice week :) I myself have admittedly NOT gotten the hang of working from home. I feel a bit guilty as we’re on like day 84 of quarantine where I am in California and I still feel like I haven’t nailed down a solid working routine. For me, I just get so easily distracted throughout the day - my work days sometimes go as late as 8 or 9pm to make up for the feeling of not being as productive or as focused as I’d like to be during the day. What has helped you guys stay focus? Any tips and tricks would be very appreciated!
Hey community! I’ve recently started a new project to plan out a potential offering and I wanted to share how I’ve used wireframes to visualize some early concepts. Making use of both the website browser and mobile device wireframes together. I’d love to see more uses of wireframes to learn how other teams plan digital layouts. Also happy to answer any questions about my use Webpage Browser and Mobile Device Wireframe Mockup Example
Hiya! Since @SpartanGomez and @Stephanie Nakano already shared their passion for gaming in the past, I thought it would be cool to know each other a bit better.What're your hobbies apart of the primary career? What do you like the most? As for myself, I’ve been deejaying since 2006 and making the music events for the last eight years. Under these circumstances, I brought more than 30 international artists to Russia and built an active community of 11,000 music lovers — 170bpm.ru. As strange as it may sound, I spent about the same time to learn how the human body works, so I usually handle the support role for my colleagues and friends if they need advice on training or nutrition. My latest love is surfing and at the moment I’m working on my project to help people to prepare themselves for this beautiful type of physical activity. Looking forward to hearing your stories behind the job :)
Hi everyone, As both a Geckoboard and Miro user, I wanted to share this tip as I think it’s a super-handy way to make sure the team can access key metrics throughout the day, even if your team is fully or partially distributed. Full disclosure, I work at Geckoboard as the Tester, and use Miro to facilitate my teams retros. I’d like to share this as someone who has used Miro. I’ve always wanted to embed key metrics in a place where I know everyone can see them. What is the challenge or problem this resolves? Communicating key metrics to everyone in a fully-distributed team. What is your solution? Embedding a live metrics dashboard in Miro. Normally we have this up on a TV in the office, but given we’re all remote now, I’ve found a way to embed it inside Miro. Now the team can quickly see the metrics we care about. These are the important steps to do this: In Miro, click the more options menu at the bottom of the toolbar. Click Paste iFrame code from the Apps window. Switch t
Hey everyone! Wanted to give you a recap of our latest EMEA V-MUG! On February 20th we had Oana Chisalom, the Instructional Design Lead at UiPath share with us how her team uses Miro to quickly and effectively design learning experiences with remote Learner Journey Mapping sessions. Here’s a question we had from one of the attendees: Have used Miro for mapping learning journeys before, but do you have tips for going beyond basic storyboarding with sticky notes? Would love your input! Also, if you’re interested in watching the recording click here!
Wanted to share our next community V-MUG "Learn a Triad of Agile Techniques With Miro!" with @Kiron Bondale happening Tuesday, June 23rd at 3:00pm PST. It'll be a fun and interactive event catered around learning agile techniques with an informative collaborative element! Whether you are part of an agile team or leading one: This session will teach you how to use Miro to help your team make decisions, size work items in the backlog and understand the many benefits provided by a flow-based delivery approach over a traditional batch-based method. You will work as part of a small team to complete three exercises that you can later adapt for use within your own organization.

This little widget blue handle for auto-layout-distribute is awesome!! Send my appreciation to the team behind this feature! Thank you. Align + distribute flow between horizontal or vertical ( like a transpose ). YES!!! I have faced this layout challenge so often!!! In fact just earlier this week with a client I needed this … and had I had this tool I could have demo’d something on the spot, but without it I had to stop the flow of thought, put a pin in the exploration and say “I’ll reorganize these horizontally and get back to you.” HA! Bravo Miro! Keep it up.
Hello awesome Miro Community. I wanted to relay a problem I am having around creating and maintaining a Table of Contents (TOC) on my boards. After seeing @Jeremy Pollack in the NORAM VMUG: 05 create links from one object to another, I immediately thought it would be amazing to create references on my larger, more complex boards in the form on a TOC. When the team loads the board, the view centers on the TOC and folks can navigate easily to the area of the board they want to work in (or to a different board altogether). Then, in major or key areas of the board, I can create a “Return to TOC” link and now my team can jump around with ease. My initial proof of concept using this method worked amazingly well, so I am confident there is an elegant solution here. The issue that has come up is that once you have linked to an object or group of objects on the board, if you change that object, the link is no longer valid, and the TOC stops working as intended. On the board I was working on,
I’ve been working from home for a few months now, and I feel like I should feel comfortable at this point. But I don’t. My first month working from home, I was making some amazing breakfasts! Fresh Omelets w/ Fruit. Now, I might eat a bagel. I used to get excited to work on my latest projects! Now I just want to play video games. I’ve read our community tips and feedback on working from home, as well as other good sources. But I still don’t have the hang of this. I struggle to separate work life and home life. I could feel comfortable while working and then uncomfortable trying to relax. Or, I could feel uncomfortable working and then cozy on the couch to relax. Is this what life is like working from home? Cycling in and out of comfort? I’m especially interested to hear what the long-term work-from-homers have experienced :)
I love the comment function in Miro. Tagging people or the entire board works great when you want to draw someone’s attention to a specific area of the board. It’s great that you can hide comments, resolve comments, and view only comments that you are tagged in. Still, when I work with my teams, the comments quickly get out of control and clutter the board. Hiding all comments is nice, but puts you at risk of missing when someone needs your feedback or input. Many of the comments on my boards are good comments, but they are left as hanging ideas that might never be resolved fully, and so they stay unresolved. Has anyone developed a procedure or guidelines for commenting on a board that prevent comments from getting out of control? Things like: when to comment tagging rules when to resolve a comment moving from comments to action (develop the ideas behind a comment on the board using templates) Some best practices or guidance in the area of commenting would surely be helpful, what do y
We open sourced a library to template boards and integrate Miro into the company data flow.Miro.com is an awesome online whiteboard for visual collaboration. We fall in love with it right when using it for the very first time! Level 1: Scale up best practices with templatesOnce we started adopting Miro, we learned that certain usage patterns work better than others. Instead of reinventing the wheel with each new board, we wanted to roll out our best practices. What we needed were templates.Miro comes with a collection of pre-defined templates to get users started. Yet, we found that our specific use cases required more tailored templates. Although Miro doesn’t offer user-created templates as of today, Miro does have an API to programmatically create and query boards.So, we set out to explored the API route. We encountered some challenges as the API supports only a subset of what the Miro UI can but by-and-large it turned out pretty well! We can design boards in the Miro UI, convert the
Is no one talking about the Attention Management feature yet? This is so very welcomed and a major feature! Every session for a new group of training or workshop participants, it usually takes a while for participants to learn the "Watch my screen" instruction when I start screen sharing. Sometimes, participants didn't even see the blue 'Join' button (tip: Refresh browser/app if this happens) This Attention Management feature just shortened this entire process! Thank you, @Marina and team, more love and power to Miro :)
Hello all. I am an instructional designer and trainer. In a month from now, my team will be making the switch from the in-person classroom to the digital classroom and we rely on tools such as Miro. Most of our classes are heavily discussion based and there’s a lot of back and forth instructor/student engagement. Has anyone successfully leveraged Miro to serve as a place to direct and field questions throughout training sessions? If so, I would appreciate anyone sharing their successes and set-up. Thanks!

Hello I am part of the team that organise the annual innovationfestival.org This event will be an online event this year and I am looking at how we can transition our 4 / 5 day design sprints online. Would anyone be willing to share their experience and ideas around best practice around running Design Sprints using Miro? Do you have any specific tips to our users who are perhaps new to online cooperation. Many thanks Craig Stanley
