I have been working from home for almost 3 years now and it has been a struggle to find that lucrative work-life balance. Previously, I was in a 1 bedroom apartment and I had to work at my dining room table or a tiny space in my living room and it was hard to get away from work at the end of the day and I experienced intense burnout. Recently I moved into my first home (YAY!) and it was a MUST that I have my own office space and now I feel so much better. I know not everyone has this luxury but you’ve made it work. So, I’m asking that you share your WFH space. What makes it great? What do you wish you had? Any tips to make a non traditional work area well...workable? Here’s mine. I’m obsessed with Funko pops and they keep a smile on my face. My “co-workers” also keep me sane when I’m alone in this room most of the day. Looking to get some artwork soon! Some of my co-workers
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?
Let’s talk Remote Design Sprints! This conversation is open to anyone looking to learn how to organise, prepare and facilitate a Design Sprint with distributed teams.

Have specific questions in mind about Remote Design Sprints? Let’s talk about them ;)
It's mid-spring, should we talk something pleasant, like User Delight? We have all experienced it: this "wow" moment, this "they already know me" feeling, an extra mile that a great product has walked to delight you. Be it Asana's unicorn, flying across your screen like a shooting star, or Trello's confetti, or Typeform's delightful microcopy—they all make a customer go "oh, coool"! “User delight refers to any positive emotional affect that a user may have when interacting with a device or interface”, says the definition. Yes, we human beings are driven by emotions! Where do these emotions lead though? Well, rumor has it, they can make your product sticky, serve your Net Promoter Score, and eventually help you fight churn. In this superb article by CopyHackers you can find some examples of how other companies added more delight into the mix https://copyhackers.com/2019/08/user-centric-delight-audit-saas/Can you name one delight that you came across in any product you have recently used
Hey everyone! We just had an amazing live virtual event called Remote Facilitation Best Practices. We shared best-in-class advice, resources and best practices on how to prepare and facilitate remote work sessions, from meetings to workshops. Here’s the Miro Board from yesterday’s event :
Hiya! Since @SpartanGomez and @Stephanie Nakano already shared their passion for gaming in the past, I thought it would be cool to know each other a bit better.What're your hobbies apart of the primary career? What do you like the most? As for myself, I’ve been deejaying since 2006 and making the music events for the last eight years. Under these circumstances, I brought more than 30 international artists to Russia and built an active community of 11,000 music lovers — 170bpm.ru. As strange as it may sound, I spent about the same time to learn how the human body works, so I usually handle the support role for my colleagues and friends if they need advice on training or nutrition. My latest love is surfing and at the moment I’m working on my project to help people to prepare themselves for this beautiful type of physical activity. Looking forward to hearing your stories behind the job :)
We’ve been tracking all the canceled in-person conferences. What’re your thoughts on event organizers pivoting to virtual conferences? We did this last year with Distributed 2019 and wrote up some of our learnings here: https://miro.com/blog/remote-conferences/ Has your company instituted any new work from home policies or travel bans?
I’m making Karma is a peer recognition and appreciation platform for businesses. Basically, we are trying to make remote work more pleasant: when colleagues say ‘thank-you’s more often, then bond better and get all sorts of emotional benefits. No one’s ever levet their job because of feeling OVERappreciated. Here at Karma, we LOVE Miro very much and admire the way it grows and develops. During one of the brainstoming sessions, the team seriously considered integrating with Miro, but we couldn’t find the relevant API for comments. Would Miro team open it up for Karma? I’ll give you a quick example on how it could work: @user comments on any board element or leaves a note: ‘@stas++ for bringing this up’ Karma gets this event and figures out that Stas has just got +1 karma from User. Karma responds to the comment/note a cool inspiring note to confirm the point was successfully gathered: ‘Cool! Stas has just got +1 karma from User. Keep it up!’. Ideally, simiarly to what we’ve done on Slac
I know we all work in different ways, but I’m highly visual, and now working on a fourth novel, I found that I simply can’t keep all of the twists and turns and motivations in my head, or I can’t sleep at night. Some readers may recognize the word “perseverating”, and what it will do to you. It’s a nightmare for authors.Over the years, I’ve learned to commit almost everything….but, especially stump points….to a picture. In the past, plain old mind maps have had to be the way. The Miro whiteboard is a boon to my style.There are two screenshots below….the broad overall plot line, but also a current problem. Late in the novel, my protagonist finds out that he’s unwittingly been working in parallel with the FBI/CIA, and I need plausible reasons for him not to be angry, and to continue on the case. First, I make a picture of the motivations I’ve considered so far. Then, I go chop wood, rake leaves, sleep, shop, do woodworking…..almost anything that’s unrelated to the writing process. I’
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.
Hey, fellow product managers! How many feature requests do you have in your backlog? And how many of them will you actually implement? Does the user ever hear back again about their idea? Oof, customer requests... Tricky they are! Like you, we at Miro love our customers, and they love us back: we get lots of great feedback and tons of amazing, elaborate feature ideas. There are several channels that we are tracking: NPS survey feedback, support tickets, shoutouts on social networks, regular feedback review meetings with customer success and support agents. But while we certainly want to deliver as much value as possible, it may be challenging to manage customers’ expectations when it comes to these requests. So how do you go about it? Please share with us your tried and tested ways to track and follow-up on customer requests to guarantee the best user experience. Or, take part in this short poll, and leave your own option in the comments!
A great story by a UX Researcher at Uber where she shares ten important lessons she learned while working for the company: Think globally Assess and prioritize Get out there (get into the user’s context) Get creative with your methods Bring stakeholders into the field Experiment with new methods of sharing insights Collaborate cross-functionally Expect the unexpected Reflect, recover…and then act Never “I”, always “we” What would you add to the list? Speaking about cross-functional collaboration, which teams do you usually work with?
Hi all! I’m wondering how all of you are faring with the uptick in remote work and using Miro as a central tool with distributed work efforts. I wrote an article about all the activity I’m seeing, and wondering if anyone here is experiencing the same:https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/worlds-remote-moment-here-robert-skrobe/ Looking forward to hearing from you!
I’ve recently came across the article on effective brainstorming techniques on Medium - https://medium.com/taking-note/effective-brainstorming-techniques-c84a1158134d. Top highlight: In any brainstorm, there’s usually a handful of people who do most of the talking, while others only pipe up when asked to share. I wonder, what are the golden rules of brainstorming sessions for you and your team?
Howdy! Since I’m accountable for several teams, I find it very crucial to plan thoroughly. It helps me to execute on a top-level and collect all the ideas / upcoming projects in one place. When I started to work at Miro, there were no cards at all, but I wanted somehow to use an agile philosophy in my day-to-day work, so I ended up with quite a primitive yet useful ‘Kanban Calendar’: Do you have anything similar in your bins? What kind of approach do you use in achieving the same goal? Would love to learn from you if I can improve my Frankenstein
, all! As I’m sure is the case for many of you, Miro has led to fundamental improvements in my team collaboration, for the better. At Crema, it set a new standard for how quickly a tool could be adopted and loved by everyone. In this video, George Brooks and myself discuss what we love about Miro. If you like this type of content, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel to get notified when part two is available. What do you love about Miro? How has it impacted your teams and workflows?
Recently, I’ve been exploring some of the major anxieties that startup companies have. Now, I am led to the question that I think a lot of us have answers to… When starting a new project, what causes the most friction? I’m in the tech industry (mobile apps), which means things keep changing and keeping up with new devices and software makes my job harder. On the other hand, it is the reason I have a job and I love what I do! More specifically, I use Miro to keep organized when I need to manage a change in app logic or update software from one version to the next. But some teams in my office don’t want to use Miro! Which can cause FRICTION!
Even though I work in Miro and have been using it myself daily for over 3 years now, I’m constantly looking for cool tips & tricks that can speed up my work on the boards. For example, creating new sticky notes using Cmd+D shortcut never gets old for me, and I always mention it to everyone who is just starting out with our product. I also love the linking feature, which allows me to create connections between any widgets on the board. What are your favorite Mirohacks?
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. :)
Hi all! I’m a semi-newbie to Miro (in that I haven’t used it much) and would like to understand the nuances of it’s application from different people who are active users. Could anyone point me to some recent case studies or articles where Miro was part of a project/endeavor? It can be on Medium, a related Miro blog, LinkedIn, etc. Doesn’t really matter. :) Thanks in advance!
