I’m curious if there are good experiences in the community of using Miro with big Touchscreens for ideation scenarios? We have a 65” Samsung Flip Touch screen that we want to explore using the touch feature together with Miro. First impressions were that everything was more difficult than using mouse+keyboard.Interacting with Miro objects was difficult. I used a digital whiteboard pen, but it did not have any buttons to help me control settings.I’m curious if there are any big-touchscreen-using-fans out there? :)
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
Hello Miro Community. My name is Patrick Seaton, the owner of Innovative Management Toools and I am relatively new to using miro boards, but very excited with what I have seen so far with their potential. I am a change management consultant and am in the process of converting my facilitator-led, in-person activities created over the last 20 years that used conference rooms and white boards with cards that I designed to help clients overcome common and recurring business challenges and problems by involving small groups of stakeholders in the session. Visual and engaging sessions with amazing results. The miro board seems to be an ideal way to bring the over 40 activities into a digital life. It is very exciting to bring my tools into a new world and open them up for use outside of my personal client base. If anybody is in the change management and business problem solving arena and would like to open a dialogue, please feel free to connect with me. Regards, Patrick
Hi folks,in 2019 my way and journey with one of the biggest / best tools online started. Miro was my tool. It was the wayI thought I worked I livedI’ve done lessons / classes and coaching with miro.Everything I planned - even privately - I’ve done with miro.I enjoyed every second I had with my boards.Every time I worked with miro I was blown away what I can do with it ...But then GDPR came and I had to search for an other tool that fits more to my needs.So I searched for alternatives and I found them:Two competitor tools - yes the servers they’re running are placed in EuropeI now test them extremely and it looks that I really move to one of them.With one tear in my eye I’ll now go into the present christmas time … but also I really look forward that I can use in January a full Collaboration tool like all of you Non-European already are doing.Just imagine you can do everything you do in miro, without collaboration … this is the big restriction I’ve got …I just want to say thank you all
This week, Lean Inception Workshop by Paulo Caroli is the Template Of The Week (or TOTW). It offers a comprehensive series of activities, typically scheduled over the course of a week that helps teams understand, align, and plan the building of the MVP – Minimum Viable Product – and the product increments. Do you like this template as much as we do? Leave Paulo a compliment here, his template on Miroverse, and feel free to share your favorite Lean templates in this thread! Voting makes template discovery easier for other members of Miro Community and supports those who are contributing to Miroverse in such a meaningful way. How do we choose TOTW? It’s a mystery! But upvoting helps!
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.
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
Hello,the miro programmers are awsome and added a new feature. This feature is nice and its a timesaver: You have to drag the arrow till the center of the sticky - till you see a white-blue-dotthan everything works perfect: @mironeer developers: Thank you miro - You’re awsome Michael
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 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!
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.
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,
Hello everyone! As one of the last posts in 2022, I wanted to share the latest creation from my team at Hiro Studio, our newest Miroverse submission, the Miro Orientation Café (https://miro.com/miroverse/miro-orientation-cafe/). For over a year, we have been working on identifying the foundational pieces that new Miro users need to be taught in order to quickly begin engaging in a workshop. This Miro Experience provides visual, written, and video instructions that appeal to a variety of learning styles and can get new users up to speed and ready to contribute in no time. Huge ups to @Rachel for her constant support and always helping us push the boundaries of what is possible in Miro, and to Hilary, Hiro Studio’s amazing designer who pulls all of the crazy ideas out of our heads and makes them beautiful.Keep on designing amazing experiences in Miro everyone! I hope you all have happy holidays and wish you the best in 2023!Jon
Hi crew,Hope your December is off to a great start. I can’t believe 2023 is so close! As the year comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on processes that I can improve in the new year. In particular, I’m zeroing in on a better way to fairly assign work. One of the biggest learnings for us at Use All Five this year came out of our DEI Training with Peoplism - that your employees may find a different level of value in each project than management believes. It’s crucial for employees to feel valued and like their career is progressing, so this exercise of aligning on what’s considered a “High Value” vs. a “Low Value” project becomes paramount to retention. They provided this worksheet for us that we’ve been using. My plan is to turn this into something in the Miroverse soon. I’m curious to hear from you:How are you assigning work at your company? Do you look through the lens of high / low value projects currently? Is this a Miro template you would use? Or is this better suited in another
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

I found myself very much enjoying the experience academy.miro.com offered to take courses and sign up for webinars. Is this a function that is offered through Miro? To create courses, host webinars, etc. that could be a substitute for using something like Thinkific or Udemy? Cheers,Tym
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)
