A Game-Changing Tool for Online Collaborations with Miro.com
Miro is one of those tools that gets me so excited about the possibilities and how it can help teams get stuff done because it works transparently, for the most part, and allows you to create, brainstorm, gather feedback or quickly collaborate on the next steps. The tool works via your browser or you can download an app for your desktop or mobile device. If you have an Apple Pencil, Surface Pen, or similar you can draw, annotate more naturally on screengrabs, elements, or just write some notes.
In the past 90 days Miro has launched several new features:
- It allows you to invite additional non-registered users for collaborating, gathering data, and participation without having to add them to a paid plan. This is a game-changer that opens up the possibilities of how you utilize the platform outside your primary team.
- Visual tables which allow you to use rows and columns to organize text, graphics, icons, and screengrabs
- Attention management which allows the board owner to gather all collaborators to a particular part fo the board to focus their attention
- More integrations including Jira, Confluence, Trello, Airtable, Notion
- Use your mobile device to convert handwritten stickies to virtual sticky notes that are editable
How I Use Miro:
- Team brainstorming where we review concepts, gather ideas, organize concepts
- Tracking stakeholder meetings, notes, and export as PDFs to share post meetings
- Brainstorming: voting via collaborators
- Quick wireframing using the PEN tool and lo-fi using the add-on
- Creating tables to organize ideas
- Moodboards to capture concepts, research, and feedback
- Webinars to involve participants in sharing, brainstorming and collaborating
- Working with journey mapping and mind maps for projects
- Capturing stickies from my wall to share with remote team
This week launched a new MIROVERSE where you can share your templates with the community so that they can learn, get new ideas and personalize for your team.
