What I'm 'Miro'ing currently and a heartfelt thanks!
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

Music in Miro - Has anyone used Miro for musical projects?
Hi everyone!First time starting a topic in the community! Hope you’re safe and well.Has anyone used Miro for musical projects apart from embedding YouTube and Spotify? I’m curious to see if composers can work together in a board to create a group song! Wondering how we can push the limits for collaboration within a virtual workspace.Maybe that could be a jingle or anthem for Mironeers.
Ship it or leave it: how to follow-up on feature requests?
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!
Massive Shout Outs to Match Height and Match Width Functions
I haven’t logged in to Miro for a week or two, so not sure when this feature was released, but want to give a massive shout outs to the dev and product teams for building in the Match Height and Match Width features natively to the platform. Thank you kindly! Another step in the direction of batch action is always appreciated.Unless I’m overlooking something, only additional request I have is to extend functionality beyond images to shapes as well.
Miro as Change Agent
I’m starting a New Topic here because I didn’t see anything else close to it.I am a new Miro user and LOVE the product. It has made a big difference in my work from a project I recently got into. I wanted to start a “Miro as Change Agent” topic to see if others have similar stories of the power of Miro and process visualization.My StoryI am the new Director of the Office of Extended Studies at Ithaca College. Part of my work is to create opportunities for high school learners to be with us on campus in the summertime for our pre-college programs. I just got through my first summer and immediately noticed how many challenges there were with the administrative processes for on-boarding participants because of all of the various systems, software, processes, and offices that are involved in these programs. So, I decided to do a stakeholder study to study the process a user (customer) goes through … from seeing a piece of our marketing, to applying, to enrolling, to paying, to experience,
Miro examples in hybrid workshops
Hello, fellow Miro gurus. I’ve cited Miro articles (Hybrid Collaborating Field Guide) and used Miro as my go-to whiteboard example in a new book about hybrid facilitation, Hybrid Live Guide, on pages: 13, 17, 18, 25, 44, 50, 61, 86, 108, 109, 111, 113, 114, 115, and 126. The book is free to download and share: www.knowmium.com/hybridHere is a specific example of using Miro on pages 108 and 109:There are times when all participants will benefit from collaborating on the same virtual tools. In our effort to create equality, have all hybrid participants use the same exact tool. Beyond equality is functionality and collaboration, both of which are supported when groups use the same virtual tools. Miro is my go-to virtual whiteboard. Getting both in-person and virtual participants on Miro allows them to contribute to the same activities in the same ways and even be in the same teams. The in-person participants don’t need to be on a virtual meeting platform either, just Miro.Pre-session, I s

LaTeX and Math Editor Tool
Hi Everyone, I’ve written a Miro addon that renders LaTeX math expressions to images you can then drag and drop to your boards. It also includes the option to toggle the input mode from plain tex to the excellent MathLive equation editor widget.I’m looking for a few test users to give some feedback on the UI and iron out any bugs.Addon url is https://miro.com/oauth/authorize/?response_type=code&client_id=3458764526714594504&redirect_uri=%2Fconfirm-app-install%2F Code is here: https://github.com/grady/miro-latex This is under active development, so it could break at any moment.I hope people find this useful.
Optimizing Counseling Session Through Miro experience
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)

Is anyone creating a capability map in Miro? I would like to get in contact with you!
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/

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: I hope this helps someone!
