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
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.

Recently, I’ve been exploring some of the major anxieties that startup companies have. Now, I am led to the question that I think a lot of us have answers to… When starting a new project, what causes the most friction? I’m in the tech industry (mobile apps), which means things keep changing and keeping up with new devices and software makes my job harder. On the other hand, it is the reason I have a job and I love what I do! More specifically, I use Miro to keep organized when I need to manage a change in app logic or update software from one version to the next. But some teams in my office don’t want to use Miro! Which can cause FRICTION!
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 :
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
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.
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.
Hi- I am new to Miro, yet so far, it is great! Do you have suggestions for the best template for value stream mapping? Initially we thought to use flow chart and build out shapes, yet curious if there is a better template similar to shapes/templates that Visio value stream templates have? Thanks in advance for any ideas!
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 :)
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
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
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.
I’m brand new to Miro and working on creating a large board for facilitating an all day workshop for a smallish group. I initially started by copying over some templates, but as I got comfortable I just started creating my own thing. I’ve discovered that I’m having to use text sizes of 900 for example, and the zoom is set to just a few %. Is there any problem with this? Should I be targeting using “normal” text sizes and doing everything at 100%, or is it totally irrelevant as long as I keep things in proportion to one another?I’m worried that I’m going to get even more hours into setting this up and suddenly realize that actually having apparently huge everything actually screws me up somehow.Any thoughts much appreciated! Thank you,
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!
I have this dream of being able to fluidly and seamlessly present and work with a group using Miro and Zoom, and what I would really like to do is to use both touch to navigate the Miro workspace, and a pen or stylus to write and draw, just as I would on an actual whiteboard.I'm hoping for a single interface to address both.I have tried using a “standard” touch screen monitor, but found the one I tried was only sensitive to a finger tip and the drawing/writing detail was not fine.I have a Wacom Intuos tablet, but have found Palm Rejection with this tablet is not supported in the Miro interface. When using the stylus I have to turn off Touch manually with a switch on the side of the tablet otherwise when I rest my hand on the tablet to draw, it zooms and pans the Miro workspace unpredictably. I find this is clunky and slow when I am trying to get into the flow of working and presenting to a group.My current workaround is to use a mouse for navigation, and then the tablet for writing. I
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
Hello, an idea and question to all German users: What about the idea to meet either virtual or in real life in a real world meeting. Therefore I like to know:Where do you come from and is anyone interested in a meeting?Please post the answers here into this thread.Looking forward for as many answers as possible and maybe to meet and share ideas.Ich komme aus Düsseldorf - NRWMichael
I’m very sure many of us in this community are business owners or work for organisations with a website presence. I too have one that I built and manage for my consultancy.However, based on my experience (and I assume for my potential clients too), trying to get a good overview of a business or an organisation can be a little painful: lots of clicking around and lots of nested information while trying to piece together a coherent big picture. Often times we also resort to sending “one sheet profile PDF” of our business (or CV/resume for job candidates) to whomever may be interested. However, anything longer than 2-3 pages can be a negative for a prospect or a hiring person.What if there’s a way to present all this information on ONE interactive page? One big picture view that gives a wholesome perspective. Presenting my hack: using Miro to tell my company’s story! #miromarketingEverything that we can do and deliver is presented in this Miro board. A use case: While some prospects maybe
A common technique used in many agile meetings is Fist of Five voting, where everyone raises their hand showing 0-5 fingers indicating a range of agreement. How do you do this well using Miro? One of the most important parts of this technique is to identify who has low confidence so that you may start a discussion. I can put 6 cards in a region and use the voting feature, but the Miro voting feature seems completely anonymous, so I would have to get the low voters to speak up to identify themselves. Does anyone have another technique to vote and more easily start the right conversations?
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.)
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.
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
For those creating low-fidelity wireframes on Miro, you can actually import your wireframes to Uizard to automatically turn them into high-fidelity prototypes. 1. Draw your wireframes on MiroStart off by drawing your wireframes on Miro, and be mindful of using Uizard's wireframing language while at it. You can do that by following Uizard's sketching guide. 2. Take screenshots of your wireframes, and upload them to UizardDo this, and watch Uizard's AI transform your low-fidelity wireframes to editable high-fidelity screens! 3. Edit and customize your screens to completeUpon transformation, you can polish and customize your design in Uizard through easy drag-and-drop! There are a lot of templates you can use too, such as the conversation screen below. Bonus:You can even take your design further by linking screens together and automatically generating your own theme from any image or URL. Hope this helps! Enoy!
Hello all. I am an instructional designer and trainer. In a month from now, my team will be making the switch from the in-person classroom to the digital classroom and we rely on tools such as Miro. Most of our classes are heavily discussion based and there’s a lot of back and forth instructor/student engagement. Has anyone successfully leveraged Miro to serve as a place to direct and field questions throughout training sessions? If so, I would appreciate anyone sharing their successes and set-up. Thanks!
