Miroverse Challenge: Team Connection 🤝
Hi Miro Heroes , A couple of weeks ago we wrapped up our annual Distributed conference. Amazing energy and so many inspiring, creative, and fun sessions!Apart from learning a lot, meeting new people, and feeling fortunate to be part of the process, our team definitely felt more connected than ever. Teamwork has always been at the heart of everything we do here at Miro, and Distributed 2021 made us once again reflect on how important meaningful and supportive team connections are. As we say, “play as a team to win the world!” Inspired by all the new knowledge, we decided to learn even more, this time from our amazing Miro community members. Today, we’re kicking off a special edition of the Miro templates contest, called Miroverse Challenge: Team Connection . This contest is all about reflection and learning. How do you make sure your team members feel connected, supported, and happy? What are the Miro tools you use? In this special edition we will have 3 award categories : Icebreakers

How Do You Miro? Retrospective Templates Challenge 🔮
Hi Miro Heroes Last month, Miroverse turned the grand old age of one, and it got us thinking about how far we’ve come — and how far we still have to go. We used this milestone as an opportunity to reflect on the successes and failures of the past year, drawing insights to help us better prepare for the future of Miroverse.Teams familiar with the Agile methodology call this process a “retrospective” and typically don’t wait for a whole year. Some find it’s most useful at the end of an entire project, quarter, sprint, or event. Today, we’re kicking off the next Miro templates contest: How Do You Miro? Retrospective Templates Challenge This contest is all about reflection and learning. We’d love to see your favorite activities for looking back and envisioning the future, so please share your best retrospective examples with the community on Miro. Challenge details Timing Submission period: June 1-28 Voting & judging: June 28 - July 5 Winners announced: July 5 Voting &
Zoom and Miro: best practices to combine these tools
Hello! I am so happy to see this group support. There is so much information currently available that I am having difficulty navigating through it all. I would like to use Miro Boards for small group work in Zoom breakout rooms during synchronous classes and am not sure if this even possible, if not, I may just assign small groups in Canvas for them to use the Miro board to brainstorm. Has anyone used Miro with Zoom? I would also be interested in any other ways people are using this tool in higher education.

How Do You Miro? Icebreaker Challenge 🧊
Hey Miro Pioneers,Welcome to our first official challenge in the series How Do You Miro! We’ve all seen that getting the best ideas and results out of virtual meetings and workshops requires energy, attention, and engagement from every attendee. But it’s hard to energize a group of people who aren’t physically together in the same room. That’s why icebreakers are such an important part of virtual meetings and why we strive to make them easy and fun in Miro.After launching Miroverse, our community templates gallery, we've shown that Miro Pioneers push the boundaries of what can be achieved with Miro every day.So, today we want to announce the first-ever Miro templates contest: How Do You Miro? Icebreaker Challenge. It’s time for you to unleash your creativity and show the community your best example of the icebreaker! Challenge details:The challenge starts today (July 20th), and will last until August 7th. We will announce the winners the following week to give our judges enough tim
Has anyone tried Planning Poker in Miro?
If you are not familiar, Planning Poker lets your development team choose from a range of options (usually numbers that indicate complexity) and then at the end of the voting, those numbers are revealed and the discussion starts. The voting plugin in Miro is very basic, since it only gives a general count of all votes but we all need to know who voted what number to better discuss. Any thoughts on how to do this on Miro? Maybe there’s something I’m missing.

We need a really good facilitator/participant permissions tool
Like loads of people here, I love what Miro can do, and I desperately wish it could do more to support live facilitated workshops and interactive training. We need a really good facilitator/participant permissions tool as soon as possible. I am sure I am not the only one who is ready to move to Miro as the main platform for all of my online facilitation work with clients, but I am stalled because I don’t know how soon this main deficiency will be fixed. This is a big barrier to running workshops with less tech-savvy participants or with groups that I will only be seeing for 2-4 hours. That’s why I want to know: What can you tell us about what Miro developers are working on right now? What are the priorities internally? What will you all be working on next? Should we be joining together to hire developers to make add-ons, or can we count on Miro to keep improving the core product for live facilitated workshops? Can we help you? What can we do? @Anna Savina , @Marina , @Oleg K , @Le
Bragging rights: Share the most creative artwork you have made natively within Miro!
As inspired by @Sam Shennan, this is a call to all the creative folks out there who are using Miro! If you have created some artwork natively (i.e. without copying and pasting or uploading content from outside of Miro) which you feel is worthy of exhibition in a museum (or at least your foyer ), please share it with the rest of the Miro community below! To avoid conflict of interest and because I don’t have a visual creative bone in my body, I will not be submitting my “chicken scratch” Miro drawings Since I guess I should share just how bad my drawings are: (It’s an eye if you were having difficulties with it :-) )

Our mission is to forge inclusive work cultures where women's careers thrive and their achievements are celebrated, and we would love you to join us and help drive change.

Miroverse Monster Template Challenge!
July’s Miroverse Challenge: Monster Template! (DATE EXTENDED!) It’s been an exciting few months at Miro with the release of our monster-sized national ad campaign! We created this ad to show the power of Miro and how easy it is to collaborate, innovate, and solve problems of any size, together in Miro. 🙌 If you haven’t had a chance to see the ad on the big screen (cough living room), across social media, or a billboard towering the city, you can check out the full ad here: Want to see how we used Miro to create the ad? Check out this video This summer, we are introducing a new type of creative #Miroverse template challenge. We won’t be focusing on just one Miro use case or template type — instead, we want to see your creativity run wild and create ANY type of template / board that features our beloved (yet a little bit scary) character. Yes, we mean it! Any type of template from icebreakers to project planning goes as long as the Monster is incorporated. Ready, set, create! We look f

Trick: Show the real name of an anonymous Guest Editor
Are you a board owner who has facilitated a Miro board session with external, non-team participants and want to see their name beside their cursor* and not some random “Guest” name, e.g., Guest Editor, Guest Artisan, Guest Researcher? While the typical workaround is for that guest editor to first sign up for a free Miro account, there is another way.*While I will keep referring to the benefit of the guest editor’s “name showing beside their cursor”, their name will also show up in:the participants panel (top-right of board); activity List pane (history of actions taken by that user); comments; an object’s Info pane, e.g., Created by: Bob Smith.--Disclaimer: The steps outlined in this post are a number of different Miro functionalities at the time of this post that I found, when combined, could accomplish my desired outcome. The ability to give an anonymous Guest Editor a name should not be considered a supported feature and therefore you should not contact Miro Support if these steps d
