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
We’ve been having a blast developing tools for this community on the Miro API/SDK. ‘Blast’ doesn’t capture it… the ability to build tools on top of all the amazing features in Miro is straight-up life changing. The developer docs and sample projects are well put together and make it easy to get started. Its not rocket science -- but the potential feels … astronomical 🤓 ← Miro now | Miro after the creative world discovers the API → What follows is a glimpse into how its been going. We’re about to begin sharing the tools in beta. We’ll keep you posted. Always eager to share what we’ve learned and collaborate with other Miro enthusiasts. I’ll probably post over in the ‘Developer Forum’ a deeper dive into some of the more developer side of things… Miro Plugin Development Project HQ Here’s some screenshots of our development HQ Miro board … don’t mind the mess, if I knew you were coming over I’d have cleaned the place up.

Hello, an idea and question to all German users: What about the idea to meet either virtual or in real life in a real world meeting. 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
There is one way often used by coaches is to describe the inner conflict of a person with different voices and giving them a graphical optical background.I have this created in miro - This example shows the inner conflict of a person who hears from his boss:I have choosen you for this task, because you’re the only one who can do this.The inner conflict of this person is:He is totally exausted and without any energy on one side and on the other side he feels flattered by his boss. He likes to shout at his boss but his inner voices telling him not to do so … I really love to work with miro in a coaching process … it offers me so much to show: Michael
As an Agile Coach I used to work with clients in-person - I love that ❤️Conducting a remote workshop isn’t just the same - nor should it be. Both formats have their benefits and disadvantages, but as a facilitator I can’t just do the same in a remote setting what I used to do in-person by using a digital whiteboard. I reflected upon this little dilema in a recent article of mine. As a facilitator of a remote workshop I have to think about much more deliberatly then for an in-person workshop. I have to create and set the stage perfectly so that my audience isn’t drifting off. ➡️ Here you find my article: The missing 10 minutes before a remote workshop ⬅️❓I would love to know, what do you do differently when preparing a remote workshop compared to an in-person workshop? And what do you think about the tips I layed out in my article?⬇️Below you can find an example that I explain in the article how I try to set the stage even before the actual workshop has started.
Hello, I am Nestor Zegarra, who recently graduated from Johannes Keppler University Business School in Linz, Austria. Due to covid-19 restrictions, I had to find a solution to conduct online qualitative research. Therefore, I chose to use MIRO for developing a focus group discussion.The different characteristics allow my research to collect the necessary data. The interviewees were able not only to express themselves but also to interact with each other. I believe that MIRO has great potential to develop more and more applications in different aspects of interaction and production of its users' data.I would like to know if anyone else has had a similar experience in using MIRO for research.
A very insightful study by PwC on #remotework trends. Zooming on the 'physical office' conundrum, it seems like employers and employees have different expectations on what the physical workplace should deliver.In my mind, I can see a promising middle ground that is the hybrid model. Simply because none of those factors quoted by both employers and employees are impossible to achieve while working remotely.What I'm proposing (in fact, a couple of my clients are running away with this idea!) is the concept of 'Virtual Middle Place' (somebody has a snazzier moniker?) It is a hybrid workplace enabled by collaborative and interactive platforms such as Miro, Mural and Stormboard.It is a middle place for an organisation where some people will choose to work from home, some in the office, and most will switch their environments once in a while. A very fluid working environment, yet always connected.Using #virtualmiddleplace, facilitative leadership theories and techniques, I believe I can help
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’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
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
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
