Hey everyone, Lindsey here, Product Marketing Manager for Remote Meetings and Workshops.


Whether you’re a seasoned pro or have found yourself suddenly remote, running remote meetings and workshops can be challenging. We’ve released a series of enhancements and new resources to help you design and facilitate amazing online sessions in Miro.



Setup and Preparation

  • Visual Notes - Set an agenda, add instructions, or an outline of the board for easy audience onboarding. 

  • *New* Meeting and Workshop Templates - Get a head start designing your boards. Check out the new templates available in-app in the Templates Library.

  • Lock - Lock elements and templates to the background to avoid accidental editing. This UX improvement reduces the chance of accidental unlocking.

  • *New* Guest Editors (all paid plans) - The quickest and easiest way to invite collaborators that don’t have a Miro account yet.


Remote Facilitation

  • Screen Sharing - Enable participants to follow along as you navigate the board and focus their attention on your presentation with editing paused.

  • Video Chat (all paid plans) - Start a quick video chat directly from Miro to reduce the number of tools and simplify the experience for audience members.

  • Timer (all paid plans) - A facilitator's favorite that shouldn’t be missed. Display a countdown timer on every participant's board to stay on track as a group remotely.

  • Voting (all paid plans) - Take an anonymous poll of items on the board to prioritize or identify preferred items democratically. 

  • Additional facilitation features coming soon!
