Anonymous Guest Editors
We are introducing anonymous Guest Editors – the quickest and easiest way to invite collaborators that don’t have the Miro account yet. Invite anyone outside Miro to collaborate with your team on your public board without any friction or additional costs. Guest Editors don’t have to sign in or sign up for Miro to have full access rights to the board that is shared with them via a public link. Organize remote meetings, brainstorming sessions, and workshops in minutes – simply make your Miro board public and share the link with workshop participants. Don’t worry about losing access to the board if you accidentally close the tab or refresh it – as long as the board is public, it will be shared with Guest Editors. Learn more about anonymous Guest Editors in our Help Center article. Guest Editors are available for Team, Business, Enterprise, Consultant, and Education plans

It means, here you can get help from your fellow community members and share your own expertise to help someone else. Mironeers (Miro employees) also participate in some discussions, but please note that they are not the primary responders, as we want you all to learn from each other.

If you have already submitted a support ticket, please do not duplicate your question in the community, and vice versa, if you’ve already created a community post, please do not submit a ticket to the Support team.

How to collaborate with your clients in Miro
Hi there! My name is Kate, I am a Product Manager for Consultant Solution at Miro. I want to share some use-cases and ideas about the ways of collaboration with clients in Miro: 1. Workshops It is easy to set up the client workshop in Miro. You can use Day Passes for one-time collaborators (so you don’t need to buy a full license) and tools to facilitate a workshop (timer, voting, video chat, screen sharing). Here is a helpful How-to video about making a workshop in Miro, worth watching if you’ve already made a lot of workshops or in the process of preparation for the first one. 2. Brainstorming sessions Miro is easy to use for an ideation process, usually, I use stickies and a mind map. You can have some boards for your ideas only, some boards for generating ideas with your team and a special board for discussing ideas with your client. 3. Content hub, getting feedback Miro is great as a single hub for all relevant documents, diagrams, pictures and so on. You can have the whole cli
