How to create
a mind map online

Mindmap creation, step 1
Start with a central concept
Click anywhere on the Miro board to add a node with a problem you’d like to solve, an idea you’d like to explore, or another concept for the mind map. All of your related ideas will extend from this core.
Mindmap creation, step 2
Add branches
For every new idea you have, create a branch (a line connecting the ideas) with a child node. In Miro, click on the plus sign on either side of a node to add a child node. Each concept can have unlimited branches and sub-branches, so the ideas can continue to flow.
Mindmap creation, step 3
Use colors
Colors can help you keep your ideas visually organized and easily understandable. You can choose a new color for a branch using Miro’s palette tool. To move nodes around, simply drag and drop.
