Hello awesome Miro Community. I wanted to relay a problem I am having around creating and maintaining a Table of Contents (TOC) on my boards. After seeing @Jeremy Pollack in the NORAM VMUG: 05 create links from one object to another, I immediately thought it would be amazing to create references on my larger, more complex boards in the form on a TOC. When the team loads the board, the view centers on the TOC and folks can navigate easily to the area of the board they want to work in (or to a different board altogether). Then, in major or key areas of the board, I can create a “Return to TOC” link and now my team can jump around with ease. My initial proof of concept using this method worked amazingly well, so I am confident there is an elegant solution here. The issue that has come up is that once you have linked to an object or group of objects on the board, if you change that object, the link is no longer valid, and the TOC stops working as intended. On the board I was working on,
Hi, I’m running a virtual event using Miro where we will give our client a virtual tour of our latest digital tools. There will be about 5 virtual tech stands on the board and a presentation at each one explaining what the tools do. I will help the clients navigate around the board. How can I include the clients more and get them to interact live with the person running the presentation about the tool? I’d really appreciate some ideas. Thanks.

Hello, I would like to share a video of Tom Solid, who is founder of PaperlessMovement. He shows what the Stickies Capture in comparission with the Post-it-App can do: Guess who the winner is? I know what I can do with this feature but after this video I was impressed. Thank you at miro for creating this!!! Michael
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
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 guys, I would like to share with your our practice for using the Miro board for delivering trainings, workshops and development brainstorming sessions. We started using Miro cca 2 months ago and were drawn to it because we used to be a part-distributed, part-remote team. Since then we switched to fully-remote business to ensure business continuity in these times. Miro echoed in our organisation and is now used by all the teamleads, trainers, business developers, marketing experts etc. Here you will find examples on how we set up our boards for the before mentioned: Example 1: The full setup of a 3-day Train the Trainer course When we talk about trainings, Miro gives the ability to create the perfect training surroundings, with the effect of re-creating a classroom agenda online. We linked the topics into coherent groups and prepared the board for all 4 types of learners: visuals, auditives, reading/writing and kinestetics. As you can see on the picture above, we used 3 frames
Hi everyone, I will be running my first-ever 20-30 people workshop on Miro and I would love to hear any advice you guys could give me! I’m lowkey worried that it would be laggy, but I don’t know - I’ve only tried working on it with 10 people at once so far (this morning) and that worked fine. But other than that- does anyone have any tips to share? So far, I’ve thought of (and prepared) the following: Separate “Google Hangout” meeting links to allow for different groups (there are 2-4) to split the discussions, so that they can be free to talk amongst themselves. (Me as the floating facilitator, I’ll jump from one “call” to another to provide help where necessary. Provided working templates separated into 5 sections for each of the groups (i.e. Information Download, Idea Brainstorming Area, Affinity Mapping Area, Voting, and Idea Conceptualization Area) along with instructions & examples positioned at the start of each section. Adding “individual workspaces” with pre-made set of po
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
If you are not familiar, Planning Poker lets your development team choose from a range of options (usually numbers that indicate complexity) and then at the end of the voting, those numbers are revealed and the discussion starts. The voting plugin in Miro is very basic, since it only gives a general count of all votes but we all need to know who voted what number to better discuss. Any thoughts on how to do this on Miro? Maybe there’s something I’m missing.
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.
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! Did you read our Ultimate Guide to Remote Work yet? We are learning to work from home together with you
Hello! I am so happy to see this group support. There is so much information currently available that I am having difficulty navigating through it all. I would like to use Miro Boards for small group work in Zoom breakout rooms during synchronous classes and am not sure if this even possible, if not, I may just assign small groups in Canvas for them to use the Miro board to brainstorm. Has anyone used Miro with Zoom? I would also be interested in any other ways people are using this tool in higher education.
Remote work and WFH is certainly growing as countries keep safe from COVID19. A lot of folks are new to working from home. I also know that a lot of Miro users have been doing this for years! So for those seasoned experts out there… How do you “switch on” to begin your work day? How do you “switch off” at the end of your work day? Personally I don’t like working from home because I have a hard time staying focused. So I need to keep routine to “switch on” and start my work day. Get dressed in my work-casual clothes, designate a specific work area, open the computer and turn on a podcast. Switching off at the end of the day has always been easy. Once I clock out and physically close the laptop, my brain knows exactly how to divide work from home life
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?

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
