I’m taking the time to create my BUJO in Miro. I’m a visual person and miss having things laid out infront of me. My tiny bedroom studio in Belgium has shrunk my useable space for work planning. I miss my big wall, I miss my studio. Miro solved my problem by allowing me to spread out and take the space i need to create my mental maps.
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?
My team is building Karma: peer recognition and appreciation tool for remote teams. Due to the Covid situation globally, we’ve been getting 3x more new registrations than usual. We had to make sure the product development keeps up with such crazy pace. Our product team has started using Miro for documentation. Keeping product design notes accompanied by the visuals and screenshots on Miro helped us to speed the internal communications drastically. This is just the beginning, but I, as a founder, feel very positive about the whole Miro Wiki experience for now. Will keep you posted. Thanks!
Hi, Our customer experience team is a cross-office and semi-remote team. We were struggling to document concepts, host conversations, write feedback and showing the whiteboard during virtual meetings. That’s how we landed on Miro. I started experimenting with miro as a central location to host tangible deliverables when working with a development team. Anything from the project scope, UX workshops, mapping out workflows, wireframes, and mockups. It became the sharing point when meeting with project managers, fellow designers, and developers. It solves all of the problems I mentioned earlier. We were able to document early-stage concepts using stickies. We were able to provide feedback, having back and forth conversations virtually using the comments, which was especially useful when working across time zones. The biggest difference it made, was that we could brainstorm, and point to visuals all in one central location. When “whiteboarding” ideas in the office the virtual attendees
Hi everyone, I am Michael. Since the 1990th i am a passionate MindMapper who loves to work graphic-oriented and loves everything wich helps to simplify complicated things. Last year i discovered miro: A colleague asked me if i can join her online consulting to test her system. It was a good web-based consulting system, but it has a lot of not so good things: It was in a graphical way based on a 1990th design It was not enough customizable for consulting and coaching needs It should offer something template-made wich can easyli shown up for individual consulting settings It should have pictures in it (i love to work with pictures) and i want not to buy a lot of pictures for the whole settings So i searched a whole 4 days and i found miro. I started my free-account and hey: Over 200.000 best quality pictures Icons The ability to drag documents Arrows to connect something FreeText And whooohoooohooo: Stickies Even in the free account a lot to offer … but then: The consultant account: I w
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!
Last week was the first for our product-dev teams working fully remote! So many adjustments! From our home workspaces, to communication, to coffee-making, lots of routines now look different. On Friday, when we ran the retrospective, we used Mad Sad Glad framework to share our emotions about the new order. Team was mad and sad about things like slow internet speed at home, an unstable working day, too little movement compared to going outside and walking around the office, the uncertainty, and having to cook instead of having snacks at the office But most votes were around the cluster of communication: low level of personal face-to-face communication is new for us, and we miss good old water cooler and coffee chats Though we are replacing them with Zoom coffee chats!

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 :
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. All levels of experience are welcome, whether you’re a versed facilitator or just starting off. Let’s learn from each other, share mistakes, lessons and become better facilitators. 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
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?
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?
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
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. :)
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?
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!
, 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?
