Hi there!

I’m wondering how many of you have leveraged Miro for things like to-do lists, organizing things to do, etc.  In contrast to other options like Trello or something like Google Keep, do you use Miro for specific things in this genre?

Thanks in advance for any perspective you can provide. :)

Hey!

As a Mironeer, I tried and used Miro for different semi-personal tasks like development roadmap, weekly and daily planning, not taking, etc.

Thing that worked best for me: Zapier integration which allows you to collect inputs from different sides (for me it was slack, google tasks and Zapier chrome extension) and then structure them on a kanban board

 

But please keep in Mind that Miro super power comes in sharing and collaboration, and personal traction leaves you with just 40-50% of what Miro can really do =)

Hi Boris,

The reason I’m asking is about adoption of minor aspects of Miro into a greater use of it.  I’ve used different ‘recipes’ in another whiteboarding application to illustrate it’s use for every day business tasks.  It really helped others understand the toolset and how extensible/user friendly the UI was. 

Thank you for providing that example!  I like the fact that you can port to Zapier for different extensibility needs.

I have asked a similar question before! I have a frame that is my “whiteboard.”

 

I just throw in some ideas, or to-do’s and use it as a place to keep notes of stuff that may not be priority at the moment. But could be useful later on. It’s a white background with the sharpie style font :joy:

It might seem simple to use a robust platform for that, but being able to access that whiteboard from anywhere on any device is no small feat...ture ;)

Hey @Robert Skrobe :vulcan:

Not sure if my example correlates with your initial question, but I’ve shared it here. Does it help?

Hi @Oleg K

I like it!  Do you happen to have a version of that Kanban board that’s been used?  No worries if not.  I was wondering what the transition to a used example would be like.

@Robert Skrobe Unfortunately, sometimes it’s hard to keep it up to date, so my current version looks something like that:

I use the Customer Journey template to make a timeline for plotting out a novel at the 30,000 foot level, before I get down to more specific scenes and writing.

 

Wow @ArkyBoy! This looks awesome :heart_eyes:
Do you already have a title for the novel? 

Oh where should I begin!?

I’ve used MIRO for so many things. As @Oleg K  shared, I’ve made some of my own, but none as succesfull. I tend to make little diagrams to explain small concepts to clients and coworkers, pasting them on Notion to explain my point. I’ve even made docouments (as if it were Microsoft Word).

I showed MIRO to a team of chemists and they had the most amazing diagrams, lab procedures and cellular reaction diagrams, they even made a periodic table so they could drag around elements here and there. 

I use it for notes and also make the cover of that same board from time to time.

@Marina :heart_eyes: Thanks!  Just a working title at the moment.  It will become more clear as the development process goes on.  I’m about 50% through with this phase, and the book is about 30% written, although the screenshot is only of the first 20 plot line pages, or so.

Miro is one of the most useful tools I’ve ever run across….by sheer serendipity.  As soon as I saw the “Customer Journey” template in a YouTube video, I knew I was on the right track.

Thank you very much for sharing that Alexis!  This is what I was looking for.  👍
