Like many of you, I am using Miro for live online participatory workshop events. Almost all of the people attending my events are brand new to Miro, and by far the most difficult part of the workshop is getting them over that first hurdle of learning how to use the tool well enough to participate. Half of the difficulty is teaching them what they should avoid doing by accident! This is much more difficult for people who are not digital natives, and in larger groups it is almost guaranteed that at least one participant will be lost and frustrated. What have you tried? What worked best?
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. :)
Dear Miro community,as we have seen in the past few months, Miro is not only the perfect tool for collaboration and ideation, but also a platform for delivering educational events, like training and workshops.Today we'd like to open the topic of visual structure of your Miro boards. Since the space to use in Miro is unlimited, it may not come as a surprise that many of us feel unsure of how to organize our own boards to keep the structure clear and have a natural flow.There are many things to consider:the amount of the content the structure of the delivery the public the intuitiveness of the layoutThere are also many components in Miro that allow us to design a board:templates frames shapes drag-and-dropsCombining it all into an intuitive board with a good flow is no easy task, that's why now is the time to learn from each other!We've prepared some examples that may come in handy when considering the layout of your next training or workshop:The linear layout comes as a natural selectio
Hello, I am a designer/trainer trying to translate some of my training icebreakers into online activites. They are (were) very tangible play activites and at the moment can’t happen. I have been building them in Miro now for a few weeks and adore the platform. It is so easy to design a learning environement that is as intiuative and engaging as physical. As my heart is in designing environments I am getting very excited about designing Miro work/play spaces for people. But, after a day of research I can’t really find individuals that are doing this? So, I am curious if there are people charging for designing Miro boards? or if not why not? Maybe to many free templates out there? Anyway, I would love to hear from you and see what you think? I am working on a lovely template to put on the Miroverse soon. Jules

Hi Miro Heroes Anna here, your Community Manager. This March, we are celebrating Women’s History Month by hosting a special edition 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 Amy Hartman, Writers’ Assistant based in Los Angeles, California. Amy worked on many well-known TV shows such as Mr. Robot, Star Trek: Picard, and Motherland: Fort Salem. She also created a super useful Miroverse template for screenwriters — Episode White Board for TV Writer's Rooms. We sat down with Amy to talk about her career path and get some tips & tricks for aspiring Miroverse Creators. TL;DR: How TV writers can use Miro for remote collaboration: We have one big whiteboard with episode numbers across the top, character names down the side, and then we add stickies outlining what each character's doing in every episode; being able to see the whole thing is r
Okay community, vote and settle this debate! Which one do you prefer and why? Desktop/Mobile App vs. Web Browser I prefer the desktop app because I like to keep my browser tabs minimal and organized. I cannot have too many open at one time! I think of Miro as a program so I like to use it like an application and not a website. I’ll use the mobile app from time-to-time to make quick notes or edits. It’s a good tool to have even though I don’t use it that often.
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 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
I’m planning to use Miro while teaching an online math course this Fall. For the synchronous portion, we will break into groups (using Zoom breakout rooms) and each group will work collaboratively on a worksheet, which I will integrate with Miro. Do you think it’s better to have a single board for that day’s lesson, containing a frame for each group? Or create multiple (identical) boards and give one board to each group? Of course a single board is more streamlined and will help me easily see each group’s progress. But my concerns are (a) the groups peeking at each other’s work rather than devising their own original solutions, and (b) one group accidentally messing up another group’s work.
Hey folks!We are doing discovery to understand how can we improve Workshops & Meetings experience, and need your help! Reflecting on the workshops and/or meetings you have run, or participated in, using Miro:What are the situations, or problems, that you can’t solve exclusively using Miro native tools? (E.g. I can’t run a poll in Miro.) What other tools, or instruments, do you use to address the situations, or problems, you listed above? (E.g. A live polling tool like Mentimeter, etc.)
I know we have the most creative community here @Kiron Bondale started a similar thread a year ago, and it was so cool to see the amazing artworks and get inspired!

Hey fellow Miroers. As noted by @German Manvelov in this post, it looks like there are number of changes in the way Mind Maps, some noted in the updated Mind Maps and others not.Some of the changes:Reassigning nodes - Noted in the help article, you can now reassign a child/parent node by simply clicking and dragging it - however, as noted by @German Manvelov, this is perhaps not as polished as it could be and appears to create some challenges, especially if you you are simply try to move the node and not reassign in. Here I am just clicking and dragging a node - watch as it reassigns itself as I just attempt to move it over to the right: Creating a new Mind Map from a node - In this post by @Diy, I believe there was previously a bug where you could duplicate a mind map node using copy/cut-and-paste, Ctrl+D, or Alt+drag. Once you did, it retained its status of a sub-node which looked kind of funny on its own. However, it could still be reattached to a mind map was orphaned. Now when yo
A very big THANK YOU for such a great tool you guys have created for us! We use Miro all day, every day in collab sessions, daily planning- and standup meetings, creating visualizations, team structures, brainstorms and just generally having FUN as we connect with co-workers online! You make our work a joy! Here is an example of our daily standup board, each team mate has an avatar, shows what they’ve done yesterday, what they’re planning on for today, a daily gif and song of the day and then a show & tell section where we showcase our work and struggles and triumphs.Here's to many more adventures on Miro – we love you guys!

Hello Miro Heroes As some of you may know, me and @Helena Brandist are reviewing all the templates our Miro Creators are submitting to Miroverse. We noticed a number of common pitfalls of first-time Miroverse Creators so we decided to add a couple of updates to our guidelines: When creating Miroverse profile, please add your photo, bio, current role, and links to your social accounts/your website; A high-quality cover image for your template has to showcase part of an example template that you like most and that best represents your template (no branded promotional images); Your template and its description has to be written in English; If submitting an educational template, please provide examples to indicate proper use. (Here are some examples: Alex Ivanov's Team Canvas or Julia Cowing's Customer Question). For a full list of requirements, check our official Miroverse checklist. A question for experienced Creators: I’m curious to know what are some other recommendations you hav
It would be interesting to see what folks come up for this challenge . Mine would be to invite a few hundred of my contacts to all join me on a board which has a background image of flowers. Then, with the collaborators’ cursors turned on, have them go crazy jumping from flower-to-flower and have the whole thing recorded with the musical accompaniment of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee. Top that!
