How to use Miro
Hello and welcome to Miro!
For the uninitiated Miro is an online, virtual whiteboard. We use Miro to brainstorm ideas, do some problem solving, and create unique and innovative online experiences. Awesome right? Let’s move on to how you can use it.
When you find yourself on a Miro board you’ll show up as a little icon at the top right of the page and be assigned a colour and cursor.
Navigating the board
Using a track pad on a laptop to move around your board is much easier than a mouse and is similar to using a smart phone, as you can zoom in and out by pinching your fingers on the trackpad.
To move around the board using your trackpad just sweep your two fingers around the board. If you’re using a mouse, simply hold down the the ALT or option key on your keyboard and use the wheel of your mouse to zoom in and out.
To move around your board using a mouse you’ll need to click and drag yourself to where you'd like to be on the board. You can use also use the navigational tools at the bottom right of the board.
Using the Miro mobile app or a tablet will let you move more intuitively around the board. The only downside is that you’ll have fewer options to use the collaborative tools that are available on the desktop version of Miro.
Whether you’re using a laptop, mobile or tablet, we’ve set up navigational tools and buttons to make your experience as easy to navigate and use as possible.
- Buttons to take you to the next part of your experience located at the top right of each frame
- Buttons to take you back to the home frame or menu at the bottom left of each frame
- Buttons to help you click through sections of each frame
- And the notes section at the top right of the board to view the menu at any time without pressing the home button.
Our hot tip is that sometimes when you click and drag around the board, you might move some of the objects around. Don’t worry about it when it happens, as you can click, hold and drag it back into place. If you’re having trouble with it though, leave it where it is and we’ll be able to adjust it later.
To watch videos on the board, simply click the video once, let it load, and click it once more to start. Clicking another part of the board while you’re already watching a video will stop the video currently playing. Make sure you stop the video you have playing before moving on to the next one.
Interacting with the board
If you find a section of the board that’s designed for an activity or collaboration, you can use the tools on the tool bar located to the left.
On the tool bar you’ll find tools that will let you add sticky notes, text, lines, shapes and drawings to your board.
Please make sure that you’re only adding things to the board where indicated, and that if you are asked to add to the board that you don’t leave any inappropriate or offensive content or comments because we’re all about those #goodvibes.
And that’s all there is to it! Thanks so much for tuning in, and happy collaborating.
