Quick question: how long have you been using Miro?
Let’s see if there are people who remember a good old RealtimeBoard
Since March 18, 2018 @ 4:54 PM CST UTC-6
Since 14.th february 2019 ….
I have a screenshot with the old RealtimeBoard Logo:
As you know, my case was completely pandemic-driven. Prior to April 2020, I’d never heard of Miro, let alone RealtimeBoard!
Bonus question: Do you remember who you first discovered Miro? Were you a participant in a Miro board session? Search engine?
I found RealtimeBoard/Miro when searching for a tool to map processes - a tool that wasn’t Visio and would not limit me to a pre-defined space. I believe I Googled: online virtual whiteboard.
Bonus answer:In Feb 2019 I’ve joined an online coaching session of a collegue. She worked with a tool and I wondered and asked myself:
“There has to be something better that is more customizable for your coaching-situtation and your individual client”
… I’ve searched 5 days … and … found ... (drumroll) : RealtimeBoard … it was so breathtaking to discover each and every part of it and the most impressing thing was:Creating/Using my own templates - My coaching and online-lesson tool was found!!
@Robert Johnson I should admit you started even earlier than I did!
Answering you bonus question: first I found the company (and my new job) and then got familiar with the product itself. I joined Miro (it was RealtimeBoard then) in August 2018
@mlanders and we rebranded to Miro right after you started, right? I remember it was March 2019...
Bonus answer: My boss discovered Miro in March 2020 when looking for options to move our in-person class exercises to the virtual world. Not sure if he’d look at Mural or any other competitors but I’m glad he picked Miro. I was initially quite resistant to the overall idea of migrating our approach (I expected the pandemic to end fairly quickly ) but once I got on board with the idea, I dove right in!
Yes … I remember … First I asked myself: “Why are they doing this … the name describes exact what I get” … But today: It was a right desicion to do so:
Simple / It stays better in mind / and says so much - even if you got the artist in mind - The rebranding was one of the best things and it hits the nail better than before …
@mlanders it’s a pleasure to hear!
