If you are not familiar, Planning Poker lets your development team choose from a range of options (usually numbers that indicate complexity) and then at the end of the voting, those numbers are revealed and the discussion starts. The voting plugin in Miro is very basic, since it only gives a general count of all votes but we all need to know who voted what number to better discuss. Any thoughts on how to do this on Miro? Maybe there’s something I’m missing.
I use Miro quite a lot to make pdf’s for presentations, whenever I need something quick and not too fancy. It is so much quicker than e.g. indesign and allows me to work collaboratively. No more sending presentation-final2-finalfinal.pdf back and forth.The textsize in miro, when creating a A4 frame, seem to be set for some very different dpi than a usual text-editor. Font size 12 from google doc’s equal roughly font size 67 in Miro. This is a bit confusing when working with the intent to print. For now, I made this guide for myself to stay with roughly the right size. I wonder if there’s a secret trick to this somehow? If not, maybe a toggle for intent-to-print, or setting dpi or something could be a solution?(In general, I think Miro carries some potential as a simpler and more accessible alternative to traditional pdf-making tools. Some more traditional text editing tools would help with this, justified paragraphs etc.)
Hi,based on my daily work with templates where i created different templates for systemic coaching with already implementet graphics: I’ve got the idea to do the same for diagraming. So you’ll only need other diagraming tools and add the symbols to your library and create a template out of it.I know it is a pain to make this by hand but it could be a solution …Michael
During one of our Miro Hero orientations, my breakout room had a delightful discussion about playing games 🧩🎲 in Miro. If you caught the APAC Community Events last week (shout out to @Joshua William Davies and @Isman Tanuri!), you know that Miro can make work really fun with delightful emojis, awesome extensions, and even hiding parts of the board. If you haven’t already, make sure you check out the Fun and Games section of Miroverse. If you have, what are your tips for adding FUN to facilitation and making work more delightful with Miro?

Hi Miro Community!It’s the Holiday season! I don’t know about you, but for me December is all about reflecting on the past twelve months and making plans for the next year. This month, I’m really excited to take inspiration from Miroverse and use some of the templates to plan my adventures in 2022. Here are my favorite Miroverse submissions for yearly planning (both personal and professional): The Golden Circles: Plan with Meaning by @Ruslan Kildeev Theory of Change by @Piera Mattioli Personal Legend Turbine by Adam Wright The Crisis Curve: Navigating Intense Change by Wicked Problem Solving Personal Values Discovery by Business Journey Personal Map by Indigo Health Three-Year Long-Horizon Schedule by Matt Lane What are your favorite board templates for planning a year ahead? Share links to Miroverse and screenshots of you boards below and let’s help each other to find the best solutions!
This used to be such a hassle for me - I would think I’d double-clicked in to an object so I can begin text then editing and quickly hit Ctrl + A, only to find that the double click was a little off and I’m zoomed out to see the entirety of my board. Took some amount of time to zoom back in. Love that my zoom and viewport does not change, per a recent update.I recognize the feature’s been in place for a while now, just want to give a shout out to its application. Thank you for this adjustment! This kind of iterative quality of life stuff is the best. Another small quality-of-life improvement just occurred to me that I equally want to shout out - if editable text is bold, it won’t revert to regular weight when deleting all characters in the string or object. Fully deleted text used to un-bold, at which point I’d have to turn bold back on. This was updated a little longer back, just as appreciated.
Fellow mironeers,As some of you may have allready noticed some of my #miroArt on linkedIn. I consider myself a Miro-Artist and use miro to create pictrues and other creative stuff with sticky-notes/ shapes. I do not create them for any special purpose but to bring me and other miro-users joy.I want to share some of my artpieces with you and would appreciate your feedback. Some of them can also be found and used on miroverse. Feel free. The #MiroLisa: Made with 21.369 Sticky Notes/ Shapes The Boss Baby: Made with 16.194 Sticky Notes/ Shapes Funko / SquidGame: Made with 8.408 Sticky Notes/ Shapes Who of you is also creative in miro and made some art yourself? Would love to see, how others do it Rgrds Said
How did you go about discovering how Miro’s feature set best fit your organizations communication needs?
Hi Everyone, I’d like to share some context then I’ll dive into the meat of the question. I am a UX/Product designer that is currently leading a small volunteer team that is working through how we can improve the experience of working remotely for our company. One continual pain-point has been the lack of ability to quickly move from discussion, to drawing out the idea or concept being described. So we did some quick testing of different apps and some discovery work with different hardware solutions and decided we would like to see Miro + iPads tested with a larger group. The feature set of a digital communication tool like Miro is new to us, really to the company at large. The UX team has done some dabbling in testing tools like this, but nothing ever stuck. So to frame the type of experimentation we are hoping for well, think of it like a discovery phase. We are hoping to learn what is out there, what applies, what doesn’t apply, who uses it and how does it impact how they comm
Howdy all - not sure when this feature was introduced, but the relative snapping (adjusting dimensions and having those dimensions match to other like dimensions within the current view) is awesome! The next level would be to do the same for margins :)Real talk, thank you for introducing this feature
Hey Miro Community! We’d love to see photos or videos of how you are experimenting with various hybrid set ups, whether for workshops, meetings, or team hub spaces -- in a formal office or otherwise. If you’d like to add some pointers and lessons learned, I’m sure others would appreciate that as well. Some questions to jumpstart the discussion:Share your photos! Describe the set up. How many people were joining in-person? Remotely? What was the main reason for the session? How did you set up your Miro board for people to participate and engage? Were most people familiar with Miro already? What other tools did you use? Describe how facilitation and meeting skills contributed to the session / collaboration. Any learnings after the session happened? We’re looking to learn from you all as we’re building out our company and product strategy here.
What is everyone using to layout semester long plans?I’ve used frames to orgainze content by topic, I’ve Product Roadmap templates, Frames with items inside of them (which means I have to constantly resize the frame) and am not 100% satisfied with either solution.Some of the key things that I need to do is:Organize materials by week Content needs to be easily moved around as each semester has different holidays Mark tasks as done when they are entered into the LMSThanks for any suggestions you can give!
I know we all work in different ways, but I’m highly visual, and now working on a fourth novel, I found that I simply can’t keep all of the twists and turns and motivations in my head, or I can’t sleep at night. Some readers may recognize the word “perseverating”, and what it will do to you. It’s a nightmare for authors.Over the years, I’ve learned to commit almost everything….but, especially stump points….to a picture. In the past, plain old mind maps have had to be the way. The Miro whiteboard is a boon to my style.There are two screenshots below….the broad overall plot line, but also a current problem. Late in the novel, my protagonist finds out that he’s unwittingly been working in parallel with the FBI/CIA, and I need plausible reasons for him not to be angry, and to continue on the case. First, I make a picture of the motivations I’ve considered so far. Then, I go chop wood, rake leaves, sleep, shop, do woodworking…..almost anything that’s unrelated to the writing process. I’

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.
Hi community! My first post here, so nice to be part of this community.I’ve been exploring using Miro for causal loop diagrams or diagrams often used in Systems Thinking. Miro has been good for capturing elements (as text or sticky notes) and makes connecting them with different lines easier. The alignment tools allow me to align text with each other, but for more complex graphs this becomes more difficult.In an ideal world, I would love if Miro could automatically adjust the elements for easy readability. This would save me from moving each element and line around when we add more.Does anyone here use Miro for similar diagrams and found a way Miro can help focus on building and evolving a diagram, instead of fidgeting around with the layout?Thanks in advance.
Hi folks! I am the new product evangelist at Miro, so great to come to this community as a Mironeer after being a Miro-user for 10 years!!! For all the designers here, if you are headed to Adobe MAX this year, join me for my breakout session to learn how to enhance your design critiques, ideation sessions and sprints using Miro + Adobe XD. Hope to see some of you there!
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
