Hello community!

You can now use Unified Modeling Language (UML) shapes to model and design software with ease and collaborate across teams, all on Miro. 

Use a consistent set of shapes to visualize processes, development, and behaviors. Simply drag and drop to start building. Miro’s UML shape pack is helpful for: 

  • Modeling and designing software with ease

  • Collaborating in Agile development environments

  • Supporting a variety of structural and behavioral diagrams

We would love to see some of your creations and get feedback. You can reach me at diagramming@miro.com or post them below in the comments. 

 

Visit our help center for more information and tips and tricks to improve your diagramming. 

 

Happy diagramming,
Turner

Hey. Do you have any plans to support real sequence diagrams? Currently it’s a real pain to draw sequence diagrams using Miro.

 

 

hi, thanks for this! been waiting on it to stop using lucidchart. hopefully you can keep expanding on the shapes to cover more of uml.

the only pain point for me is some shapes are too big! right now a deployment diagram with nested nodes takes up a lot of space unless you bump everything’s font size to ~36, at which point the board becomes unusable at 100% zoom

edit: i’m also noticing that some shapes like the component would be easier to work with if the padding was done away with or at least reduced

Hi Alexander,
Thank you for your feedback. What do you mean with ‘support real sequence diagrams’?
Looking forward to your feedback.

@Turner Pijpers Alexander Ravikovich is referring to the UML standard for sequence diagrams, seen here: https://www.uml-diagrams.org/sequence-diagrams.html

 

You will also find the Lucid equivalent here: https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/uml-sequence-diagram
 

While it’s a relatively simple standard to put together for oneself, it would be great to have built-in Miro support as this is one of the most common diagram types in software design.
