Just used Miro yesterday - was in a face to face meeting, but so much better than post it’s on the wall. Had my Mac displaying it on the screen as a whole, then the team were on their iPads. Using it again today for a zoom call

@vincenthaywood thank you for sharing! Do you use Miro for mindmapping?

I use them for a lot of things. Honestly one of the best for me was FreeMind, I used it for the long time but I've now been looking for a more cooperative (=online) tool. I tried Coggle recently but the interface was too distracting and unwieldy. It was constantly dis-organizing my thoughts, if that makes sense. Testing MindMeister and MindNode right now, and like them so far.

@samanthamerlivat thank you! For what tasks (scenarios) do you need "cooperative (=online)" tool?

@new_user_2382edc32a We use it for a number of things, especially to structure discussions and decision-making when planning. This is the kind of scenarios where we use the maps in a cooperative manner: 1. Preparing content: could be for a site page, or to prepare video content....One person plans the outline in the mindmap, then we review together, move things around, chose what to include, what not, what to expand on, etc. 2. Structure content: For instance, redoing our website architecture. We mapped it in a mindmap, used the mindmap to organize our discussion and redistribute elements as we made decisions. 2. Plan activites (like marketing): When we start a new planning phase, we map togehter in the tool different channels in a mindmap, then add the different initiatives we can do for each channel. We work on it at the same time to brainstorm, then prioritize. I hope that helps.
