Hi community! I like to share a trick to show and easily manage a set of bars on Miro. For example, I use it in workshops together with my clients to define Objectives & KPIs for Digital Strategy. All the elements on the board are locked except the rectangles (horizontal and vertical) that you could stretch until arrive at the level you want. Here is a public board to see an example: BTW, this board should be also a good template for Miro users (beyond the bar function). Cheers, Mauro
Hi everyone, I am Michael. Since the 1990th i am a passionate MindMapper who loves to work graphic-oriented and loves everything wich helps to simplify complicated things. Last year i discovered miro: A colleague asked me if i can join her online consulting to test her system. It was a good web-based consulting system, but it has a lot of not so good things: It was in a graphical way based on a 1990th design It was not enough customizable for consulting and coaching needs It should offer something template-made wich can easyli shown up for individual consulting settings It should have pictures in it (i love to work with pictures) and i want not to buy a lot of pictures for the whole settings So i searched a whole 4 days and i found miro. I started my free-account and hey: Over 200.000 best quality pictures Icons The ability to drag documents Arrows to connect something FreeText And whooohoooohooo: Stickies Even in the free account a lot to offer … but then: The consultant account: I w
, all! As I’m sure is the case for many of you, Miro has led to fundamental improvements in my team collaboration, for the better. At Crema, it set a new standard for how quickly a tool could be adopted and loved by everyone. In this video, George Brooks and myself discuss what we love about Miro. If you like this type of content, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel to get notified when part two is available. What do you love about Miro? How has it impacted your teams and workflows?
Hey there, Most companies switched to work-from-home mode several weeks ago. We’ve already shared a lot of resources on remote collaboration tips & tricks in a public whiteboard wiki showed our WFH workspace (add yours!) discussed how we begin and end our work days. But let’s discuss the challenges of working remotely. What bothers you most of all? Anything that you have already overcome? Or maybe remote work is just fine for you? Share your thoughts in the comments, and let’s address those challenges together with the community. For example, my biggest challenge is overworking. I simply can’t understand when I should switch off - my laptop is just in front of me, why not to check Slack, email inbox, or complete a task from the backlog? What works for me (well, I’m trying) close Slack (or at least turn off the notifications and set myself away) at a set time have something scheduled for the evening (a Zoom call with friends or I plan to make dinner) clock off (I mean I finish
How do I love Miro - let me count the ways My story with Miro begins, like many others, shortly after COVID-19 started to rear its ugly head in Canada. I am senior consultant working for a small project management and agile training and consulting boutique firm in Toronto, and till a month back all of our course were delivered in-person. I don’t actually know how my boss ended up picking Miro rather than some other platform, but I’m very glad that he did pick it. We run a dozen or so public and corporate courses and over the past month my colleagues and I have spent most of our time transforming our exercises from the physical world to the virtual canvas. For some courses, this has been relatively easy whereas for others where we were using Lego bricks and other tactile materials, it took a lot of imagination. We have only delivered a handful of courses so far but the preliminary feedback from learners has been very encouraging and I can see us continuing to offer live virtual cours
Hello I am part of the team that organise the annual innovationfestival.org This event will be an online event this year and I am looking at how we can transition our 4 / 5 day design sprints online. Would anyone be willing to share their experience and ideas around best practice around running Design Sprints using Miro? Do you have any specific tips to our users who are perhaps new to online cooperation. Many thanks Craig Stanley
I love the comment function in Miro. Tagging people or the entire board works great when you want to draw someone’s attention to a specific area of the board. It’s great that you can hide comments, resolve comments, and view only comments that you are tagged in. Still, when I work with my teams, the comments quickly get out of control and clutter the board. Hiding all comments is nice, but puts you at risk of missing when someone needs your feedback or input. Many of the comments on my boards are good comments, but they are left as hanging ideas that might never be resolved fully, and so they stay unresolved. Has anyone developed a procedure or guidelines for commenting on a board that prevent comments from getting out of control? Things like: when to comment tagging rules when to resolve a comment moving from comments to action (develop the ideas behind a comment on the board using templates) Some best practices or guidance in the area of commenting would surely be helpful, what do y
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,
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!
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!

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, 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
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
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 :)
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
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!
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?
Welcome to the May Miroverse community roundup! May is a special month because it marks Miroverse’s third birthday. 🥳 We celebrated by gathering the community and learning from the best and brightest at our second-annual virtual event, Into the Miroverse. If you missed it, you can watch the full recording here. Over the past month, you’ve added more than 120 templates to Miroverse, generously sharing methods for problem-solving, product management, innovating and more. Check out the newest templates to find inspiration for your next project. 💫 In monthly roundups, we usually highlight standout Creators with the most copied, published, and liked templates. However, May had some surprises in store! Two Creators tied for Most Published, and another Creator took the lead for both Most Copied and Most Liked. Plus, we’ve partnered with two experts in their industry to bring you helpful new resources sure to level up your work — more on that below!So, let's dive in and recap our community
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
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
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.)
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!
