Challenge: What's the craziest thing you can imagine using Miro for?
It would be interesting to see what folks come up for this challenge . Mine would be to invite a few hundred of my contacts to all join me on a board which has a background image of flowers. Then, with the collaborators’ cursors turned on, have them go crazy jumping from flower-to-flower and have the whole thing recorded with the musical accompaniment of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee. Top that!
We have just completed a digital book fair on Miro
As the Istanbul Literature House, we have completed our first digital Book Fair using Miro's unique features. It was our only second fair of independent publishers but, due to the pandemic, we weren't able to organize it in a physical space. Then we discovered Miro and started to think if it was possible to use its features to set up a digital space where publishing houses could open their stands, just like in a real fair. And it worked out beautifully. Each publishing house was able to work independently on the board, some of them prepared amazingly designed stands. We also organized 36 video events on Zoom and YouTube in nine days. Our Miro space became a place where people could see the programme (by turning the pages of a giant, pdf, booklet), find out the links of the upcoming events, watch the videos of previous events and visit each publishing houses stands to discover and buy some books.The fair has ended now, but we are keeping the board open for a second week. Instead of show
One of the coolest things: Visual-Notes - Board Objects
Hello,I just want to share a thing wich is so cool to me and I am really amazed how Visual-Notes could be used:I was searching for a short way to add a Downloadsection into my board - I have tried it by Visual Notes, where I added each PDF-file of the board into a section.I was so amazed about the flexibility that gives me this feature - with the “board object” I can choose each and every element of the board that can be downloaded and give it an optical look and feel of the board.Mironeers / Developers / Software-Engineers you are great!Thank you!!!!Michael

Describe your perfect getawayTGIF
Summer's here and while a lot of travel for most has been cancelled we can still dream.I've always dreamt of taking a month (or more) long vacation to Italy. Traveling to different cities with my husband and tasting all the great foods and wine.We wouldn't have a very strict schedule and take things very easily. Absolutely no laptops and I wouldn't even think about work. Describe your perfect getaway!

Using Miro for hosting collaborative drawing classes
I’m running my Mindful Drawing online workshop within my Miro board. I host an audience and use the board’s drawing tool to demonstrate to the audience. Viewers can work on their tasks off to the side of the main area and I can zoom and pan out to look at their work while keeping an eye on everyone at once. It’s rad. I’m also using the collaborative board privately with my artists friends to play around during calls when we catch up during lockdown.
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

What Miro licence did you use? Have you been including break-out sessions?Any thoughts welcome :)
'Building Emotionally Safe Environment in Miro' workshop video
1am start time notwithstanding, @Joshua William Davies and I had a blast of a time co-facilitating this workshop session at Miro’s Distributed 2020 conference last week. We shared about how you can make Miro a safe working and collaboration space for everybody and aspects you can should consider when designing and facilitating experiences within a virtual environment.Do watch the video recording of the session and check out the Miro board itself!
Any uses cases for note-taking?
any uses cases for note-taking? examples links etcthought this would be good for note-takingor any whiteboarding type app but it’s actually really badcos there’s no screen real estateyou would need a digital whiteboard that takes up the entire wallthen it’ll be useful. until then i dont see how this could be good for note-taking any best examples of uses cases for note-taking? examples links etc
I want to use Miro for presentations. What is the most efficient way to create a recurring frame in a playlist? For instance, I would like to keep referencing a Main Frame throughout a presentation and thus insert a copy of that frame as a different number, but it doesn’t look like I can make a duplicate of that frame. As the number of frames gets longer, It makes it more difficult to go back to the #1 frame. I guess I could add a shape with a link and put it near the frame I am on. Thanks.
Workaround to Hiding Titles and Presentation Suggestions
I have been using Miro for this Fall 2020 semester, which is my Master’s year in Architecture, where we have been experimenting with presentation viability of the program. Overall the program is really nice for us to present our thesis although I have some suggestions and a workaround.I think the program’s presentation mode could really benefit from a Prezi Style Approach, whereby the progression of slides, is the camera jumping from point to point (or slide to slide) visually. Miro already kind of does this when setting up frames and being in presenter mode. (But not when you click present next to the slide arrows in the bottom middle of the screen; that makes it more a typical slideshow). However there needs to be the ability to hide frames as they are a bit visually obtrusive when you multiple in the same area. I mainly am doing this when I first show an overview, then zoom in to one of the specific points.Workaround:You can make it a bit less intrusive by removing the titles of the
Value Methodology collaboration boards
Value Methodology uses team activities to be successful.Virtual meetings can be a one way discussion which reduces likelihood of a successful workshop.

This can be the place to make it happen.For all of the Value Methodology practitioners out there… Lets collaborate on some common boards for our profession.

Replacing PowerPoint with a Miro board
I am running a webinar in a few days and the plan is to use Miro to share content rather than PowerPoint. Its a rather large group so there won't be any participant inputs on the board (I know this is the whole point of Miro). Any thoughts on what the risks of this approach might be??
Setting up a workshop
I cannot find answers to the technical side of how to set up a workshop. I want to run a training session with fewer than 20 people (initially just 5 or so) - I’ve learnt how to manage all the features but when I tried it out we struggled to all see the board we were working on. I need an idiots’ guide - do I just use share? What is the presentation option for? Can I get it so when I move the board around the participants see what I’m doing (I had to keep saying, ‘It’s under that, on the left’. We were using Zoom - is that the normal way? I’m close to giving up at the moment.
Prototype update: Zoom Transcript Visualized to Miro
Zoom Transcript to Miro Layout Made a fun Miro plugin prototype this week .. been dying to make it for a while. It takes a zoom meeting transcript and lays it out into a commenter-by-commenter swimlane-ish flow of their sequential comments on stickies. Here’s a little demo video walk-through of where I was able to nudge the prototype to this week. Like any prototype it sheds light on the basic idea and what’s working / not working … What do you all think? What would you want to do with something like this?
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
How do you usually group stickies (or other widgets) during the Workshops and why?
I am curious to know if you ever needed to group stickies somehow during the Workshop, why do you need that and how do you do that.When I am on the workshop with my team and we have some braistorming session we usually sort stikies manually to find some patterns and group them accordingly. Usually the person who wrote the skitie try to find the right group and place the stikie there or create the new group.Are there any other cases and best practices?

Share your books in the comments Let’s have our own book club
How to signal that everything is ok. Is there like a survey?
I am working with groups of 30 . Is there a way to easy ask for feedback in a group (like yes no?) . Like if people can say “ok” with a button so we know that everybody is in place and everything is working? Like voting but just very quick and not depending on space. Thank you!
