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!

Hi, my name is Heri Hermawan (from Indonesia). During the pandemic, my colleagues and me at Asa Berdaya Consultant (psychological safety design in Indonesia) tried to utilize miro as a medium to optimize the counseling process.The results of this exploration showed unexpected results. Clients become more open, creative, and enjoy the counseling process. On this occasion, I would like to share this experience with interested colleagues so that they can use miro as a co-creation process for themselves or with counselors in their respective countries. It can even be a product development for your respective organization. We continue to try to build and study how to create interaction between humans in digital media by paying attention to aspects of emotion and design.For more information about us bit.ly/tanya-asaberdaya (click to connect with us on whatsapp chat)

Miro is a lovely application which I find more and more use for almost daily. I wish I had used it when I was more gainfully employed, as I’m confident it would have helped in innumerable ways in the dynamic and creative environment I left for stay at home fatherhood. As it stands, I mostly use it for organizing my creative endeavors and hobbies.In the case of the latter, I’ve been using Miro since early in the pandemic to play various tabletop roleplaying and miniatures games online with a huge community of players around the world. While there is a bustling and crowded field of dedicated VTTs (Virtual Tabletops) which exploded in popularity as games scrambled to continue online, Miro serves my needs and those of countless others exceptionally without the oft heavy baggage of trying to be all things to all games.The one area where I needed to supplement Miro usage with additional application(s) was in having reliable RNGs (random number generators) aka dice which could be “rolled” and
We have Miro integrated with our Jira Cloud system over OAuth 2.0. I’ve learned that direct refresh of Jira Cards isn’t possible without webhook call from Jira, which the OAuth 2.0 integration does not yet support. Can you please add plans for this ASAP? We have users that use the Miro/Jira integration lots (sprint planning, etc.) and this feature is very important for their productivity. Thanks!

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:

A few weeks ago, @Thor Mitchell dropped a post about some new apps by Miro Labs.The Bookmarks app immediately caught my attention as I saw how it could fill in some gaps in my current Miro workflow. First, let's look at how I most use Miro these days.I use frames all over my boards, both as a way to present and export objects. I then use the Frames sidebar to navigate to said frames as I work on the board, but also while sharing my screen over MS Teams, Zoom, etc. If am presenting all frames in interactive presentation mode, I will use Present → Frames, but if I only need to present a subset of frames that are relevant to the current discussion, I will add them as Activities and then present using Present → Facilitate.The issue I have been running into lately is when the board object I want to present/move to next is not always a frame – nor do I want it to be a frame!For example, as I am presenting board content to someone, I may want to jump to some text or a sticker before moving to
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!

Article: Missing a number of board tools and actions due to small screen size or low screen resolution
I am writing this post as there has been an uptick in users thinking they were missing apps or controls were disappearing. Here’s an example: This behaviour should be expected when your Miro board is being displayed in a way that there is just not enough space for all of the controls - some examples of this include:a small physical display + low resolution, e.g., 13-inch laptop with a resolution set to 1024×576 a larger physical display, but still set to a very low resolution your browser/Miro desktop app window is not full maximized. For example, here is what happens if I have Miro opened in a browser on my 14-inch monitor at 1920 x 1080 resolution AND I don’t have the browser windows fully maximized to fill the screen: Embedded BoardsThis may also happen with embedded board – viewing boards through MS Teams, Confluence pages, Google Meet, etc. Browser Zoom greater than 100%Another thing to check is your browser zoom level is at 100%:
Our thoughts and ideas!Understanding where changes affect the organisation is key to a successful product or service development.We have created a method called the Milky Way, which combines product (value stream), capability (what we do), systems or tools (what we need to be able to do) and information in one map.3 min intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq__kDY5w1AIt requires that an organisation invest time in understanding what they are doing = created a map. We have created a Miroverse template for that:https://miro.com/miroverse/the-milky-way-enterprise-map/We have also created a Miro Tool to export the data to Airtable, where we further can create more details data for onboarding. And some things in Miro as Layers :-)https://www.milkyway.international/milky-way-toolNot for everyone. But if you invest the time, it will pay off. And yes, there is a book as well: https://www.amazon.com/Milky-Way-navigate-accelerate-change-ebook/dp/B09H61612Y/
