Short Name: Ready Check
User Story: As a Remote Workshop Facilitator who uses Miro, I would like the ability to execute a “ready check” through the Miro user interface in order for me to quickly gain an understanding of which participants are at their computer and ready to move forward on the workshop. Having this information is critical given the nature of remote workshops and corporate cultures which may not include the explicit usage of webcams.
Potential User Benefits:
- Spend less time asking questions, speaking over one another, and wondering if we should start or wait.
- Drive engagement with workshop participants.
- Use this functionality for other forms of quick engagement.
- Example: Verbally say “How many of you agree with what I just said? Check “ready if you agree” “not ready” if you don’t.
- This feature has the potential to tie into existing systems which Miro already has in place and presents a number of growth opportunities for a Ready Check feature in the future. Ideas I have currently include:
- Integration with the timer system. <Set a 15 minute timer for break, Execute Ready Check when timer completes>.
- Integration with the voting system. As mentioned in the potential user benefits example, sometimes, facilitators/collaborators just need a quick way to ask a Yes or No question but don’t want to open the floor to 15 hot microphones all at once. Provided the ability to quickly type a question and see results from the remote audience presents a unique opportunity to expand this feature in the future.
