On Thursday, April 9th Can Wang and Mariana Almeida from the global freelance organization, Upwork, graciously presented our first ever San Francisco chapter V-MUG on Remote Problem Solving and Ideation. Can is a UX designer and Mariana is a user researcher, together they shared their expertise on how they manage remote distributive work, ideate, and strategize as product developers. The event showcased an introduction to Upwork, a presentation on how to effectively ideate, and a workshop of a mock ideation/brainstorming session with the audience participants. Check out the event recording below! If you’d like to check out more of our upcoming events please check out events.miro.com. As our event community grows we’d love to get your feedback!

Recently, I’ve been exploring some of the major anxieties that startup companies have. Now, I am led to the question that I think a lot of us have answers to… When starting a new project, what causes the most friction? I’m in the tech industry (mobile apps), which means things keep changing and keeping up with new devices and software makes my job harder. On the other hand, it is the reason I have a job and I love what I do! More specifically, I use Miro to keep organized when I need to manage a change in app logic or update software from one version to the next. But some teams in my office don’t want to use Miro! Which can cause FRICTION!

Take screenshots of your wireframes, and upload them to UizardDo this, and watch Uizard's AI transform your low-fidelity wireframes to editable high-fidelity screens! 3. Edit and customize your screens to completeUpon transformation, you can polish and customize your design in Uizard through easy drag-and-drop! There are a lot of templates you can use too, such as the conversation screen below. Bonus:You can even take your design further by linking screens together and automatically generating your own theme from any image or URL. Hope this helps! Enoy!
Hello, I am a designer/trainer trying to translate some of my training icebreakers into online activites. They are (were) very tangible play activites and at the moment can’t happen. I have been building them in Miro now for a few weeks and adore the platform. It is so easy to design a learning environement that is as intiuative and engaging as physical. As my heart is in designing environments I am getting very excited about designing Miro work/play spaces for people. But, after a day of research I can’t really find individuals that are doing this? So, I am curious if there are people charging for designing Miro boards? or if not why not? Maybe to many free templates out there? Anyway, I would love to hear from you and see what you think? I am working on a lovely template to put on the Miroverse soon. Jules
Hey everyone! We just had an amazing live virtual event called Remote Facilitation Best Practices. We shared best-in-class advice, resources and best practices on how to prepare and facilitate remote work sessions, from meetings to workshops. Here’s the Miro Board from yesterday’s event :
Remote work and WFH is certainly growing as countries keep safe from COVID19. A lot of folks are new to working from home. I also know that a lot of Miro users have been doing this for years! So for those seasoned experts out there… How do you “switch on” to begin your work day? How do you “switch off” at the end of your work day? Personally I don’t like working from home because I have a hard time staying focused. So I need to keep routine to “switch on” and start my work day. Get dressed in my work-casual clothes, designate a specific work area, open the computer and turn on a podcast. Switching off at the end of the day has always been easy. Once I clock out and physically close the laptop, my brain knows exactly how to divide work from home life
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 :)
I have this dream of being able to fluidly and seamlessly present and work with a group using Miro and Zoom, and what I would really like to do is to use both touch to navigate the Miro workspace, and a pen or stylus to write and draw, just as I would on an actual whiteboard.I'm hoping for a single interface to address both.I have tried using a “standard” touch screen monitor, but found the one I tried was only sensitive to a finger tip and the drawing/writing detail was not fine.I have a Wacom Intuos tablet, but have found Palm Rejection with this tablet is not supported in the Miro interface. When using the stylus I have to turn off Touch manually with a switch on the side of the tablet otherwise when I rest my hand on the tablet to draw, it zooms and pans the Miro workspace unpredictably. I find this is clunky and slow when I am trying to get into the flow of working and presenting to a group.My current workaround is to use a mouse for navigation, and then the tablet for writing. I

It would be interesting to see what folks come up for this challenge . Mine would be to invite a few hundred of my contacts to all join me on a board which has a background image of flowers. Then, with the collaborators’ cursors turned on, have them go crazy jumping from flower-to-flower and have the whole thing recorded with the musical accompaniment of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee. Top that!
A common technique used in many agile meetings is Fist of Five voting, where everyone raises their hand showing 0-5 fingers indicating a range of agreement. How do you do this well using Miro? One of the most important parts of this technique is to identify who has low confidence so that you may start a discussion. I can put 6 cards in a region and use the voting feature, but the Miro voting feature seems completely anonymous, so I would have to get the low voters to speak up to identify themselves. Does anyone have another technique to vote and more easily start the right conversations?
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!
Welcome to the May Miroverse community roundup! May is a special month because it marks Miroverse’s third birthday. 🥳 We celebrated by gathering the community and learning from the best and brightest at our second-annual virtual event, Into the Miroverse. If you missed it, you can watch the full recording here. Over the past month, you’ve added more than 120 templates to Miroverse, generously sharing methods for problem-solving, product management, innovating and more. Check out the newest templates to find inspiration for your next project. 💫 In monthly roundups, we usually highlight standout Creators with the most copied, published, and liked templates. However, May had some surprises in store! Two Creators tied for Most Published, and another Creator took the lead for both Most Copied and Most Liked. Plus, we’ve partnered with two experts in their industry to bring you helpful new resources sure to level up your work — more on that below!So, let's dive in and recap our community

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

Therefore I like to know:Where do you come from and is anyone interested in a meeting?Please post the answers here into this thread.Looking forward for as many answers as possible and maybe to meet and share ideas.Ich komme aus Düsseldorf - NRWMichael
Hey folks!We are doing discovery to understand how can we improve Workshops & Meetings experience, and need your help! Reflecting on the workshops and/or meetings you have run, or participated in, using Miro:What are the situations, or problems, that you can’t solve exclusively using Miro native tools? (E.g. I can’t run a poll in Miro.) What other tools, or instruments, do you use to address the situations, or problems, you listed above? (E.g. A live polling tool like Mentimeter, etc.)
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!
Hi everyone!First time starting a topic in the community! Hope you’re safe and well.Has anyone used Miro for musical projects apart from embedding YouTube and Spotify? I’m curious to see if composers can work together in a board to create a group song! Wondering how we can push the limits for collaboration within a virtual workspace.Maybe that could be a jingle or anthem for Mironeers.
Hey fellow Miroers. As noted by @German Manvelov in this post, it looks like there are number of changes in the way Mind Maps, some noted in the updated Mind Maps and others not.Some of the changes:Reassigning nodes - Noted in the help article, you can now reassign a child/parent node by simply clicking and dragging it - however, as noted by @German Manvelov, this is perhaps not as polished as it could be and appears to create some challenges, especially if you you are simply try to move the node and not reassign in. Here I am just clicking and dragging a node - watch as it reassigns itself as I just attempt to move it over to the right: Creating a new Mind Map from a node - In this post by @Diy, I believe there was previously a bug where you could duplicate a mind map node using copy/cut-and-paste, Ctrl+D, or Alt+drag. Once you did, it retained its status of a sub-node which looked kind of funny on its own. However, it could still be reattached to a mind map was orphaned. Now when yo
I know we all work in different ways, but I’m highly visual, and now working on a fourth novel, I found that I simply can’t keep all of the twists and turns and motivations in my head, or I can’t sleep at night. Some readers may recognize the word “perseverating”, and what it will do to you. It’s a nightmare for authors.Over the years, I’ve learned to commit almost everything….but, especially stump points….to a picture. In the past, plain old mind maps have had to be the way. The Miro whiteboard is a boon to my style.There are two screenshots below….the broad overall plot line, but also a current problem. Late in the novel, my protagonist finds out that he’s unwittingly been working in parallel with the FBI/CIA, and I need plausible reasons for him not to be angry, and to continue on the case. First, I make a picture of the motivations I’ve considered so far. Then, I go chop wood, rake leaves, sleep, shop, do woodworking…..almost anything that’s unrelated to the writing process. I’
