Hi Miro Heroes Anna here, your Community Manager. This March, we are celebrating Women’s History Month by hosting a special edition of the Miroverse Challenge, Womxn at Work, and highlighting the most inspiring female creators that contributed templates to our template library. I’m super excited to share our conversation with @Johanna Torstensson, an Agile Coach and Scrum Master based in Karlskrona, Sweden. Johanna is a prominent Miroverse Creator and longtime Miro Community Member who authored one of the most popular templates of 2021 — Sailboat Retrospective. It won Miro users over because it’s a fun, easy, productive way to look back at sprints and identify what went well and what needs to improve. We sat down with Johanna to talk about her career path and get some tips & tricks for aspiring Miroverse Creators, and I’m excited to share her wisdom with the Miro Community. TL;DR: Best advice for Agile coaches: coaching teams is not about you or what you believe is the way to go
This week, Coffee Break by Magdalena Benavides is the Template Of The Week (or TOTW). It is a fun pre-workshop onboarding activity for new users that helps meeting hosts to know which participants are having trouble with Miro so the host could address it. Do you like this template as much as we do? Leave Magdalena a compliment here, her template on Miroverse, and feel free to share your favorite educational ice breakers in this thread! Voting makes template discovery easier for other members of Miro Community and supports those who are contributing to Miroverse in such a meaningful way. How do we choose TOTW? It’s a mystery! But upvoting helps!

Ummm are you supposed to look at the person on the screen? Are you supposed to stare into the camera?…. During the body language event today, we talked about how important facial expressions are on video calls because we can’t see the body of the person across from us. Even hand gestures are a different thing on video, so the face does the talking - literally and figuratively. Plus, eye contact is important to show someone that you’re listening to them and you care about what they’re sharing. But how do you do it? I find that if someone consistently looks at one part of their screen, it’s clear to me that they’re focused on me and we’re connected. I do the same - but I tend to put my video on the left side of my screen and notes on the right, so my head is slightly turned to the left when I’m talking to someone on video. Also, I’ll say it - it’s so obvious when someone keeps looking at themselves on video…it’s brutal but we all do it! So, what do you think? How can you make eye contact
Hey Everyone, Brad from Miro here. I’m looking for the next round of customers that we can feature in inspiring video stories like these ones we’ve produced about Lake | Flato Architects, Frog, and Twiga.

Please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply here. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about the amazing things your team is doing! Thanks so much! Brad

There have been a number of posts over the years where a user has asked:How can I download all images from a Miro board at once?As of the time of this post there is no out-of-the-box functionality in Miro to do this, but if you are on a paid (or Education Plan), there is a workaround where you can download a backup of the board (*.rtb file) and then extract all of the files from that backup. Here is the reply that I have used before on this forum:--The. rtb is a document container file. If you’re on a paid/Education plan, you can use the board export → Download board backup to save the .rtb container file and then extract all files. Here’s how:Export the board using the board backup feature Once saved to your computer, change the file extension from .rtb to .zip Open with your zip program of choice and you’ll see all of the files that were in your board (.pdf, .png, .docx, .jpg, etc.)Example once opened on my Windows computer using 7-Zip File Manager:

The inking (using a SMART board pen) doesn’t work within the Miro board. Using your finger to write works ok but is not a good substitute for a pen. As the SMART board inking is not compatible any drawing or writing using the supplied pen only ‘overlays’ and doesn’t embed into the Miro board. Essentially it won’t save any inking using the pen.
I can’t embed it here, but I made a Vimeo video tutorial showing how to use Photopea to make lettering quickly and easily for use in Miro.Using Miro in one browser tab and Photopea in another, it’s fairly trivial to make text using fonts not included in Miro. Photopea has limitless fonts, and you can just cut and paste your text layer back into Miro. Easy!
Hey Miro Community! We’d love to see photos or videos of how you are experimenting with various hybrid set ups, whether for workshops, meetings, or team hub spaces -- in a formal office or otherwise. If you’d like to add some pointers and lessons learned, I’m sure others would appreciate that as well. Some questions to jumpstart the discussion:Share your photos! Describe the set up. How many people were joining in-person? Remotely? What was the main reason for the session? How did you set up your Miro board for people to participate and engage? Were most people familiar with Miro already? What other tools did you use? Describe how facilitation and meeting skills contributed to the session / collaboration. Any learnings after the session happened? We’re looking to learn from you all as we’re building out our company and product strategy here.

We sat down with Matt Anderson from Think Startup and his colleague Rob to speak about why it’s difficult to align on customer value. “Customers’ expectations are brutal and are showing no signs of slowing down. Customers are better informed than ever and have a more even playing field equipped with a keyboard and a poor experience. This is not going away any time soon.” Would you agree?
