When our team started planning new projects for the current period, we decided that it was time to have everyone participate and commit. We also wanted everyone to know about everyone else’s projects, and we wanted to provide a chance for everyone to participate in anything that was of their interest and matched their skillset. Obviously, we jumped directly to Miro.In our board, a few things happen:Everyone participated planning the projects. Everyone shares updates on the activities related to the projects they are involved with. Everyone provides feedback!The last point is the one I am most excited about. During our monthly meetings, the whole team jumps into the Miro board to write questions, comments, suggestions, and provide help. We have never been a better connected team (even if we are working from home).
For a world-travelling facilitator and trainer, March 2020 felt like my entire professional world had collapsed. Borders closed, clients either cancelled or postponed engagements, and suddenly my professional calendar looked pretty empty.What can I do when most of my work requires people-to-people engagement and interaction?And then I discovered Miro, and what a journey it has been! Read about my experience and my ‘Top 5 tips to transition into a virtual facilitator’:https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/making-jump-transitioning-virtual-facilitation-isman-tanuri/I’d love to hear your thoughts and your own experience too in the comments. Tell us your stories!
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've just been trying to use Miro for Story Mapping using the Story Mapping template. It was looking good to start with but after a while when I came to need to organise Activities and items on the backbone row it all just fell apart and I had to give up.The behaviour of the Activity and Backbone row items basically breaks the entire usefulness of the User Story Map template for me. The way I story map, I have Activities at the top, then items on the backbone row form the 'walking skeleton', these are the minimum set of non-optional stories that enable the system to work. To start with items under the backbone might be details or sub-tasks of backbone items, but further down the map, perhaps several release slices down, tasks at that location still relate to the activity, but may not relate directly to whatever task was on the backbone row. These later tasks might represent alternative user journeys through the system, or quality of life improvements for the activity.The problem is tha
I’m looking for some advice and guidance on using miro for a working group. If they are looking to post many documents, weblinks, images etc within key themes - what is the best way to organize this? Folders? Multiple boards? Is it searchable? Can they be nested within each other? If this a good tool for curating content/cataloguing content - or would you use a different tool such as google drive? I like the visual nature of it, easy ability to upload - but I am not sure if Miro is a good tool for such work. We are new at using it so any advice would be great. Thanks,Julie
Hi Everyone,I’m new to Miro and I’m a bit stuck with something. Hoping that a Miro Hero can come to my rescue.I’m working on an internal help centre for our support team (20 members) and need to create categories for around 200 articles. I want the support team to create the categories and sort the articles via card-sorting.I’ve set up a Kanban board with 45 cards (article titles) and columns for groups. I’m pretty happy with the board so I’m ready to share it with the participants to start getting their input.Here’s where I’m stuck.I need help with understanding the best way to share my Miro board for card-sorting so that each participant has their own version to work on. I want them to sort the cards (articles) and name the groups individually and independently of each other.How can I do this?Is the only way to create duplicate boards for each participant or is there are more sophisticated way?I’ve been searching for 2 days, so please let me know if you have the steps or links to an
Please Miro Gods! Almighty pros! Tell me I can define a finite space so my non-native-late-adopters can stop getting lost. I realize they can click on "me" to get back, but the stress of it all is robbing me of workshop time and the participants of a stress free experience. Would also love to be able to lock half the features so I can introduce people to one tool at a time. Is that a thing? Cortisol + learning curve+ more space than we need= creativity drain.
Hey everyone! Happy Friday 😊 I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been having soooo many video conferencing calls. Back to back. One zoom call to a google hangout to a FaceTime and so on and so on. I completely understand that during this time we’re all trying to stay connected and can feel isolated just being at home but I’ve almost hit a breaking point. How are all of you handling this? Any tips and tricks?
Who here works in a learning and development or training capacity at their company or uses Miro for those purposes?I’d love to hear how you’re using it to foster engagement and facilitate learning in the workplace.What boards are you using?What templates are most useful for you?what works? What doesn’t?
I have several clients and I want to work with them separately. I bought a consultant plan - and now have a question - how to orginize work with my clients? Do I need to open new teams or I should make new project at the my main team and invite consultants there?I don’t want to pay extra money for additional licenses I want that boards created for each client see only this client.
Back in the days when Miro was called “realtimeboard,” the platform was shared with me through a colleague and it was the resource for work that I never knew I needed. Since then, Miro has changed the way I work for the better! I manage 20+ different apps and brands with a remote team. Miro helps me keep projects organized while being able to make quick notes, start designs, and plan on multiple levels. Check out some of the work I get done in my screenshots below, hopefully it will help you work on your own boards. And not shown in the pictures is a hidden gem… I have a frame called “whiteboard” it is exactly what is sounds like, its a place to just write anything like an old school whiteboard App design and planning user funnels. Planning phases with a timeline. Easy way to record some ideas into tasks.
Hi, Miro Community. I created a 1-hour video tutorial of (almost) all Miro features and functions. Each specific function is time stamped in the Youtube video description. The video covers with navigating, then left side menu functions, onto tips for sharing boards with others, and finally the bottom left menu’s presenting and facilitating options. I hope it helps new users as well as experienced users who might see something they’ve never used. The video is public and sharing is welcome.www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJG2LUmyv2E&feature=youtu.be
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.
Hi there, Do you use Miro outside work? We already have examples of creating games on the board drawing writing a novel I’ve heard people use Miro to create moodboards, plan their trips, brainstorm on the design of a new apartment, plan a dream wedding… Please share your examples in the comments! Attach screenshots of your boards if possible
Hi everyoneWe recently hosted an exhibition opening on Miro. We had a few artists create live drawings on the board and we held an opening speech and discussion via Discord/Miro.Here’s a video we made of the event and we’re hosting an exhibition ‘walkabout’ today at 18h00 CAT. Feel free to join! All the join links can be found here: http://www.openwindow.co.za/now-gallery-and-good-on-paper-present-viral/76814/
I have spent a lot of time lately translating my in-person training workshop content into a collaborative live online training environment. I've read and seen plenty of best practices from other sharers (thank you!) and created the boards as you can see below. I also managed to deliver a session of this 2-hour live online training workshop with business partners in another country this week. Here are my learnings from that opportunity: Less is seriously more! Miro is such fun to use and I actually built lots of engagements and activities for this session. I probably ended up using 50% of what I built. In an online environment, it takes probably 50% more time to complete activities and discussions than offline. The good thing is I can easily see what's next on my board and skip content/discussion as necessary. Give plenty of ramp up time! The participants love the experience of using Miro, the interactivity and the engagement throughout the workshop. To get to this stage, however, means

Hi there,I’d love to hear some creative ways for how to keep people’s attention/focus during a workshop, whilst giving them enough “quiet” and individual time to work on an activity. So for example…..while setting people free to brainstorm for 10 minutes, I worry that given too much time, some people may drift off to do other work (check email, go get a coffee, etc). Particularly in this virtual space, where we’re not all together in a room. I want to give people enough time/space to work, but not risk losing their overall attention?Any facilitation tips on ways to do this? Many thanks,Adam
Hey, I hope everyone is doing good. My team and I have transformed our whole Ivacy VPN website using Miro. From Wireframing to conceptulizing, to content placement, we’ve done everything on Miro. It has really helped us alot. So, I was just curious to know if there are any Cybersecurity brands here who are using Miro and how it helped them redesign their website?
