I have way too many board with the default logo. It was hard to find anything. I tried selecting the remarkable area of the board so that I could visually see it. But that was also not great.Then I found out how to "craft" them. I recorded a small how-to in case you want to do that, too.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EQu94hjaDs (I couldn't embed the video for some reason)In short it is:put an emoji on the board click on the title of the board click "select preview area" zoom in on your emoji hit doneAs soon as you refresh your dashboard, your board will be updated. step 3: click "select preview area"step 4: zoom in on your art Refresh your dashboard and your thumbnail should be updated
Hi, Miro Community. I created a 1-hour video tutorial of (almost) all Miro features and functions. Each specific function is time stamped in the Youtube video description. The video covers with navigating, then left side menu functions, onto tips for sharing boards with others, and finally the bottom left menu’s presenting and facilitating options. I hope it helps new users as well as experienced users who might see something they’ve never used. The video is public and sharing is welcome.www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJG2LUmyv2E&feature=youtu.be
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.

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
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?
I’m running my Mindful Drawing online workshop within my Miro board. I host an audience and use the board’s drawing tool to demonstrate to the audience. Viewers can work on their tasks off to the side of the main area and I can zoom and pan out to look at their work while keeping an eye on everyone at once. It’s rad. I’m also using the collaborative board privately with my artists friends to play around during calls when we catch up during lockdown.
I am sure many of you have already used different techniques to create your workshops. I am consistently dipping into Liberating Structures to string together experiences. I’ve used a few for clients and have also actively experimented with a number in Miro to get a sense of where they can work smoothly or otherwise.My list so far:1-n-4-AllConversation CafeTRIZDraw TogetherUX FishbowlWhat Liberating Structures have you tried building with Miro?

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!
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!
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.
I am running a webinar in a few days and the plan is to use Miro to share content rather than PowerPoint. Its a rather large group so there won't be any participant inputs on the board (I know this is the whole point of Miro). Any thoughts on what the risks of this approach might be??
Hi, The brackets/braces shape is not working well for me. For one it doesn’t scale well. And the tip in the middle is barely visible, I wish it looked more like a bracket and was able to scale well. I end up using these arrows instead to create a similar meaning, but that can also be misleading and I often can’t make them look the same. In this video I scale the brackets from small to big. I also show how I add arrows instead and try to recreate the shape.
Hello friends, I was turned on to Miro by hearing on a Podcast that a tv writers room used it to track their story outline. After starting my own account, I see vast potential, but am a little lost on what functions would be best suited, so looking for some suggestions. Basically what would be nice, would be to have a ‘index card’ system… or maybe more of a linear timeline thing, where you can add scenes, rearrange them, and if you pull one out - they all slide down to cover the hole. Any ides or links to tutorials would be helpful! Alex
Hello, if you are in frame mode and the frames are not so close together then you can get a nearly prezi-like presentation. I haven’t got set frames into details of pictures but with doing this the effects could be even better than in my result. Michael
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?

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?
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
Anyone using Miro for Academic Research or Personal Knowledge Management? Looking for inspiration and use cases
Hi all,I’m a knowledge worker.While looking for a good tool to build my Personal Knowledge System (aka Second Brain), someone suggested Miro.I’ve searched a lot, but I wasn’t able to find any use cases related to Academic Research or similar jobs.I see Miro is mainly used for UX Design, meetings and similar.I wonder if and how I could use Miro for complex knowledge, often related to projects.I ask because I’m a visual guy, I really love mind maps, and I see being text only only takes so far when it’s time to learn.
Hey everyone! Brittni here So happy it’s Friday! I am a podcast junkie and during this quarantine I’ve been listening to so many podcasts and even listening to old episodes of some of my favorites. I listen to podcasts more than I listen to music now which is crazy for me. I’m even starting my own podcast with my friend since highschool (everyone has a podcast ) Here’s just a sample of what I’m listening to: How Did This Get Made (Best Episode...Monkey Shines) Pod Save America RedHanded Newcomers: Star Wars, with Lauren Lapkus and Nicole Byer Comedy Bang Bang Lovett or Leave it In Voorhees We Trust with Gourley and Rust In Myers We Trust with Gyers and Rust Pod Save the World B*tch Sesh Any other podcast junkies out there? What are you listening to?
Embedded Miro boards are cool, but they’re not responsive. The out-of-the-box HTML embed code for embedding a Miro board on a web page is fixed-size. Your embedded board will look great on a large screen, like a laptop, but not so great on a small screen, like a phone.Here’s a way to embed Miro boards on a responsive web page. I have an example at https://agilesoftwarecourse.org/backlog . It looks great on any device and screen size (as far as I know ).Here’s how to do embed your Miro board on a responsive web page:Get the embed code for your board: The board’s default embed code will look something like this: Copy-paste that HTML into your web page, for example:<iframe width-”768” height=”432” src="https://miro.com/app/live-embed/o9J_l6jHaVU=/?moveToViewport=-1758,-1612,1544,919" frameBorder="0" scrolling="no" allowFullScreen></iframe>Delete the width= and height= parts of the code. Replace them with class="responsive-iframe". Now your HTML will look like this:<iframe
We’ve been having a blast developing tools for this community on the Miro API/SDK. ‘Blast’ doesn’t capture it… the ability to build tools on top of all the amazing features in Miro is straight-up life changing. The developer docs and sample projects are well put together and make it easy to get started. Its not rocket science -- but the potential feels … astronomical 🤓 ← Miro now | Miro after the creative world discovers the API → What follows is a glimpse into how its been going. We’re about to begin sharing the tools in beta. We’ll keep you posted. Always eager to share what we’ve learned and collaborate with other Miro enthusiasts. I’ll probably post over in the ‘Developer Forum’ a deeper dive into some of the more developer side of things… Miro Plugin Development Project HQ Here’s some screenshots of our development HQ Miro board … don’t mind the mess, if I knew you were coming over I’d have cleaned the place up.

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!
