Hi folks! I just want to quickly draw your attention to a few new apps in the Miro Marketplace by Miro Labs that you may find useful: Bookmarks: https://miro.com/marketplace/bookmarks/Create shared bookmarks of board items / locations that you often need to revisit. [Demo video] Saved Selections: https://miro.com/marketplace/saved-selections/Snapshot and name complex selections of board items to reload later. [Demo video]Avataaars: https://miro.com/marketplace/avataaars/Enliven your workshops and presentations with your own custom avatars. [Demo video] Feedback is very welcome, either here, or using the Submit feedback icon in each app. Thanks! Thor.
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!
I often make boards or frames using a picture of a model as a background. I then want participants in my workshop to be able to place sticky notes on the background. But Ik don't want them to move the background itself, so I want to lock it.The easiest way to work with sticky notes is to right click to insert them. However, this does'nt seem to work over locked objects (except frames). And you can't use the visual as a background to a frame (can you?) My workaround is to provide a ‘stack of stickies’, but I would prefer people to be able to insert their own. Any ideas on how to do that?
Hi All,I am using Miro a lot for my work: i love it, and love sketchnoting.Also using the Miro App on Ipad with the apple pencil, I find it a bit limited. For example if i doodle something and I need to select it and move, it is not very handy.Anyone is including sketchnote on Miro? what would you recommend to use? Do you have any video or material to see specifically?Even better if I don’t need an additional tool!Thank youIlaria
Hi Miro Heroes, We’ve launched this community forum earlier this year. And I wonder if you can share your experience with Miro Online Community Just a few suggestions to elaborate on: Do you find this place helpful? Have you found new friends/colleagues/soul mates here? What skills does it help you to develop? What are the most valuable things for you in this online community? Please leave your feedback in the comments below
Every month, our larger department team has a virtual team meeting. We wanted to introduce Miro as a way of injecting some interactivity into the meeting. One idea we had was to incorporate some sort of employee recognition into it so I was wondering what ideas the community had.Have you ever run activities that incorporate employee recognition or appreciation?Things to consider:There will probably be anywhere from 65-80 people attending, all virtually through Teams. Most have never used Miro and many likely haven’t used an online whiteboard. The meeting is an hour but we can count on some department updates and Q&A, so the activity should only be 30-45 minutes.
Hi Everyone, Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a nice week :) I myself have admittedly NOT gotten the hang of working from home. I feel a bit guilty as we’re on like day 84 of quarantine where I am in California and I still feel like I haven’t nailed down a solid working routine. For me, I just get so easily distracted throughout the day - my work days sometimes go as late as 8 or 9pm to make up for the feeling of not being as productive or as focused as I’d like to be during the day. What has helped you guys stay focus? Any tips and tricks would be very appreciated!

Hiya, This week we have our annual offsite at Miro! Usually, offsite is an event when the entire distributed Miro team comes together to a single place to work and have fun together.Due to You-Know-What, this year our offsite (just like in 2020) was transformed into a HUGE virtual event And this is so cool! We have all-hands sessions, as well as breakout rooms with activities; fireside chats and amazing quizzes, and more. Do you usually have an offsite at your company? Did/Will you have an offsite this year? If yes, in what format? Do you believe that online events can be as engaging as in-person ones?Please share your thoughts in the comments The world’s biggest retro at Miro Summer Offsite 2020
So we are keen on creating a list of educational and informative material that the whole product design team can contribute to and take value from. This could be books, online resources and also courses. A Trello list is our first option, or a spreadsheet. But I was wondering if anyone had created a board in Miro in an intuitive way that could accommodate a collaborative reading list? It’s a basic one, but keen to see how creative others have been!
After using Miro for 3+ years, it’s still fun when you discover something you didn’t know.In this example, I will group the four images and then double-click the top-left one (the cat with the fishbowl) and move it separate from the group. Next I will do the same with the puppy. This saves me from Ctrl+Shift+G to ungroup, rearrange, and then Shift+drag to select all and Ctrl+G to group. I didn’t see any mention of this in the Structuring Board Content → Grouping Help Center article, but I expect it’s a feature and not a bug.

Hi Everyone,I’m new to Miro and I’m a bit stuck with something. Hoping that a Miro Hero can come to my rescue.I’m working on an internal help centre for our support team (20 members) and need to create categories for around 200 articles. I want the support team to create the categories and sort the articles via card-sorting.I’ve set up a Kanban board with 45 cards (article titles) and columns for groups. I’m pretty happy with the board so I’m ready to share it with the participants to start getting their input.Here’s where I’m stuck.I need help with understanding the best way to share my Miro board for card-sorting so that each participant has their own version to work on. I want them to sort the cards (articles) and name the groups individually and independently of each other.How can I do this?Is the only way to create duplicate boards for each participant or is there are more sophisticated way?I’ve been searching for 2 days, so please let me know if you have the steps or links to an
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?

Summer's here and while a lot of travel for most has been cancelled we can still dream.I've always dreamt of taking a month (or more) long vacation to Italy. Traveling to different cities with my husband and tasting all the great foods and wine.We wouldn't have a very strict schedule and take things very easily. Absolutely no laptops and I wouldn't even think about work. Describe your perfect getaway!
Hey everyone! Happy Friday 😊 I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been having soooo many video conferencing calls. Back to back. One zoom call to a google hangout to a FaceTime and so on and so on. I completely understand that during this time we’re all trying to stay connected and can feel isolated just being at home but I’ve almost hit a breaking point. How are all of you handling this? Any tips and tricks?
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
I do a little guitar and bass teaching in my spare time and have thought of using Miro for communicating music theory to students - would be a great teaching environment overall, particularly in terms of students asking questions / working together on pitch/harmony etc Can’t see any suitable templates so far - am I missing something?
Hi there,I’d love to hear some creative ways for how to keep people’s attention/focus during a workshop, whilst giving them enough “quiet” and individual time to work on an activity. So for example…..while setting people free to brainstorm for 10 minutes, I worry that given too much time, some people may drift off to do other work (check email, go get a coffee, etc). Particularly in this virtual space, where we’re not all together in a room. I want to give people enough time/space to work, but not risk losing their overall attention?Any facilitation tips on ways to do this? Many thanks,Adam
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
