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

Ummm are you supposed to look at the person on the screen? Are you supposed to stare into the camera?…. During the body language event today, we talked about how important facial expressions are on video calls because we can’t see the body of the person across from us. Even hand gestures are a different thing on video, so the face does the talking - literally and figuratively. Plus, eye contact is important to show someone that you’re listening to them and you care about what they’re sharing. But how do you do it? I find that if someone consistently looks at one part of their screen, it’s clear to me that they’re focused on me and we’re connected. I do the same - but I tend to put my video on the left side of my screen and notes on the right, so my head is slightly turned to the left when I’m talking to someone on video. Also, I’ll say it - it’s so obvious when someone keeps looking at themselves on video…it’s brutal but we all do it! So, what do you think? How can you make eye contact

Hi Miro Heroes Anna here, your Community Manager. This March, we are celebrating Women’s History Month by hosting a special edition of the Miroverse Challenge, Womxn at Work, and highlighting the most inspiring female creators that contributed templates to our template library. I’m super excited to share our conversation with @Johanna Torstensson, an Agile Coach and Scrum Master based in Karlskrona, Sweden. Johanna is a prominent Miroverse Creator and longtime Miro Community Member who authored one of the most popular templates of 2021 — Sailboat Retrospective. It won Miro users over because it’s a fun, easy, productive way to look back at sprints and identify what went well and what needs to improve. We sat down with Johanna to talk about her career path and get some tips & tricks for aspiring Miroverse Creators, and I’m excited to share her wisdom with the Miro Community. TL;DR: Best advice for Agile coaches: coaching teams is not about you or what you believe is the way to go
Instead of these webinars, where it is strange to ask questions when you have set a tight plan. I would like to just go into Vimeo or Youtube and see how to do and get working. Or you could make interactive classes inside Miro as you do in the beginning.I would like to learn how to use Miro as a project planning tool. Inside a Scrum environment, or a Lean project framwork. I guess your projectleaders, developers already work with Scrum and Agile so it should be an easy one to teach newbees.Also weekly meetings and calendar integration would be nice to know more about, to get right into the best way to work with Miro and make it a productive tool that can help gaining profit and make the buisness thrive…
We sat down with Matt Anderson from Think Startup and his colleague Rob to speak about why it’s difficult to align on customer value. “Customers’ expectations are brutal and are showing no signs of slowing down. Customers are better informed than ever and have a more even playing field equipped with a keyboard and a poor experience. This is not going away any time soon.” Would you agree?

Hi Miro Community,This week we’re highlighting a standalone video about linking objects.As you may already know, one of Miro’s super powers is that every object on a board has its own URL. This allows you to add hyperlinks inside the board itself, making it quick and easy to jump to a specific location with the click of a button. Watch the video in the standalone section at Miro Academy. How do you use linking in Miro? Let us know below!

Hi Miro Community,This week we created a standalone video about Miro sticky notes! It includes everything you (or maybe a client of yours) would want to know about this handy brainstorming tool. My favorite tip is that you can copy cells from a spreadsheet and paste them on a Miro board to create individual sticky notes. Such a time saver!

Project, process and task management with MiroI have started using Miro to map out processes for our company, globally. We have processes for internal business work, and for client work.I’m also using Teams with Miro to have boards, processes and tasks for different clients.Processes often require tasks to be completed by different employees and consultants.I need a way to: Create re-usable processes in Miro Assign tasks based on process steps, to employees and external consultants for completion Track the status of each task, request updates on status of each task See all tasks allocated to each employee or consultant and status of each Mark completed tasks as ‘completed’ Also, create ad-hoc tasks that sit outside regular processes or projects, and assign / track them as outlined above. I want to be able to track all of this visually. I know conceptually that there are tools like Kanban boards, and there are various task managers. Ideally I’d like to do it all within Miro, but I
Hi Miro community, In the past months we have organised several Miro(verse) events and it has been a success and loads of fun! We are already planning many more, and would love to hear what topics, themes, and use cases you would like us to organise events around. Maybe there is a specific Miroverse template you would love to learn more about? Please share your thoughts, wishes, and suggestions in the comments
Hi everyone, I am a U.S. Marine Veteran and have been working on a passion project in Miro for a while and would like to share it with the community for feedback. In the tactical components of the military we use a tool called a terrain model (see image 1). These terrain models provide the organization’s leadership and team members with a depiction of an operational environment. Moreover, these terrain models allow for “strategic overlays” where we can visually demonstrate our plan to ensure everyone is on the same page. This is a tool that has been used, to great success, for many years in the military because of its undeniable effectiveness. While working to take my personal training business online, I became frustrated with how siloed and fragmented the software space was. It seemed like I was only able to a view a single piece of the map at one time. I wanted the ability to see the entirety of my business in one place. So I searched far and wide for this type of solution. Althoug
Hi Miro Community,Today @Rachel and @Jonathan White will be leading a Miro Board Improv session and it is going to be loads of fun!
