Hi folks,

in 2019 my way and journey with one of the biggest / best tools online started. Miro was my tool. It was the way

  • I thought
  • I worked
  • I lived

I’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 Europe

I 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 in this fantastic community:

@Marina who supported every user here and was the spirit and the woman of the first hour:
Without you this community hadn’t grown so big - and of course to all other @mironeers (Please Marina would you tell everybody a big: Thank you:hugging: )

@Robert Johnson who is never to tired to answer an user question and to support and help. 
Without you miro wasn’t this what it is.

@Kiron Bondale who follows the path of Robert and is also a loyal miro user.
Without you and your presence miro looses someone important.

I really feeling honoured that I had the privilege to be part of this great community …
The next weeks I will reduce my participation here - It is time to let an other person be No3 in the ranking list …

All the best and wishing you a nice Christmas time with one of my new favorite videos:

Thanks for all of your contributions to the community @mlanders , and I will be sorry to see you stop using Miro, but I totally understand the need for regulatory compliance! Hopefully Miro is able to more fully address GDPR requirements in the future and you can resume your usage of it!

@mlanders - If I am reading this all right, Miro is now GDPR compliant:
