Facilitators and champions who onboard new Miro users can take advantage of our new How-to templates available in the Building Blocks section.
Each template includes an image showing where to find the tool, a short gif demonstrating the tool in use, and an exercise to try it out. Feel free to use the templates when organizing workshops and meetings.
Here’s a quick rundown on the 5 techniques you’ll want to teach first:
Navigation includes zooming and moving around the board.
2. Sticky notes
Sticky notes are great for quick brainstorming, taking notes, and arranging information visually. If you’re familiar with putting stickies on a whiteboard, you’ll feel right at home.
Reactions let you show, not say, how you feel or what you think in the moment. You can select from six emojis to express yourself during meetings and workshops. Participants can also raise their hands and notify facilitators.
Comments let you start discussions in any place on the board. Comments are perfect for leaving feedback or adding additional context. Asynchronous communication is ideal for remote teams, especially if you have teammates in multiple time zones.
Following others around a board makes real-time collaboration easy. Our “Bring Everyone to Me” feature asks collaborators to follow you directly in Miro. This powerful facilitation feature allows meeting organizers and workshop facilitators to guide participants and ensure everyone is engaged.
Once you master the basics, you can keep building on them.
