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.

Using Miro board for trainings and people development
Hi guys, I would like to share with your our practice for using the Miro board for delivering trainings, workshops and development brainstorming sessions. We started using Miro cca 2 months ago and were drawn to it because we used to be a part-distributed, part-remote team. Since then we switched to fully-remote business to ensure business continuity in these times. Miro echoed in our organisation and is now used by all the teamleads, trainers, business developers, marketing experts etc. Here you will find examples on how we set up our boards for the before mentioned: Example 1: The full setup of a 3-day Train the Trainer course When we talk about trainings, Miro gives the ability to create the perfect training surroundings, with the effect of re-creating a classroom agenda online. We linked the topics into coherent groups and prepared the board for all 4 types of learners: visuals, auditives, reading/writing and kinestetics. As you can see on the picture above, we used 3 frames
How Do You Miro? Miro 101 Templates Challenge
Hi Miro Heroes, Once again, the Miro Community has pulled through. Your sharing, your helpfulness, and your passion for collaboration have inspired us to launch the next installment in our series How Do You Miro. It was this thread on the community that gave us our new topic.Workshop facilitators quite often face the situation when the meeting participants are brand new to Miro, and it is extremely important to teach them the basics of Miro to quickly onboard them into a workshop to start collaborating right away. So what are the best practices to get everyone up to the same speed? We are happy to announce our second official challenge How Do You Miro? Miro 101! Share your own sandboxes/play areas/cheat sheets for Miro newbies.

7 ways to provide someone with a copy of a board you own
A colleague of yours might want their own copy of a board you own or a client of yours might want to take a copy of a board from your Miro environment to their own Miro team.Copying a board within the same teamThe simplest approach is for your colleague to duplicate the existing board using the Duplicate command which is available from the “…” menu for the board in the Miro dashboard or in the board settings. You can specify the name of the new board, whether it will get created within the same Miro project as the original board or not, and whether to copy the current share settings. Your colleague will need to have full edit access to the original board to do this. Another option is for your colleague to create a brand-new board, select all the content from your original board (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C) and then paste it into your new board (Ctrl-V). Again, this requires that your colleague has full edit access to the original board to do this. Finally, you can create a shared custom templat
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
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 &
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
Miro Desktop App vs. Web Browser
Okay community, vote and settle this debate! Which one do you prefer and why? Desktop/Mobile App vs. Web Browser I prefer the desktop app because I like to keep my browser tabs minimal and organized. I cannot have too many open at one time! I think of Miro as a program so I like to use it like an application and not a website. I’ll use the mobile app from time-to-time to make quick notes or edits. It’s a good tool to have even though I don’t use it that often.

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.
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 :-) )
How do you design your Miro board for training and workshops?
Dear Miro community,as we have seen in the past few months, Miro is not only the perfect tool for collaboration and ideation, but also a platform for delivering educational events, like training and workshops.Today we'd like to open the topic of visual structure of your Miro boards. Since the space to use in Miro is unlimited, it may not come as a surprise that many of us feel unsure of how to organize our own boards to keep the structure clear and have a natural flow.There are many things to consider:the amount of the content the structure of the delivery the public the intuitiveness of the layoutThere are also many components in Miro that allow us to design a board:templates frames shapes drag-and-dropsCombining it all into an intuitive board with a good flow is no easy task, that's why now is the time to learn from each other!We've prepared some examples that may come in handy when considering the layout of your next training or workshop:The linear layout comes as a natural selectio

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
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.
How to form a Vision Statement using Miro
I am running a workshop where one of the tasks of the participants is to formulate a statement around their Vision. I wanted to reach out to the Miro Community to see how others are doing it. This is a simplified summary of my approach: 1. I ask them to fill out a survey where they each are to describe their Vision. 2. I invite them to the board where they get 3 dot-votes to vote on the contributions they think are the best (if it is a 10 people team, there will be 10 formulated Vision Statements to vote on). 3. I ask them to look at the results from the vote, and describe the Vision with 1 word only. This creates 10 words which all are probably very important to the Vision. 4. Filled with insights (hopefully) from the vote and the 10 words, I ask them to come up with an updated version of the Vision Statement using the 1-2-4-All tecnhique. I feel that this creates a lot of engagement during the process, but sometimes people are not ending up with a conclusion they hoped for / feel c

Using Miro for minor tasks
Hi there! I’m wondering how many of you have leveraged Miro for things like to-do lists, organizing things to do, etc. In contrast to other options like Trello or something like Google Keep, do you use Miro for specific things in this genre? Thanks in advance for any perspective you can provide. :)
