Finding and using templates to get started
Browse the template gallery to get started with a pre-made framework or combine different templates to keep your project moving forward.
Get into collaboration mode faster by creating your own template, or using a template made by Miro that fits your needs. Templates live in one of four areas:
- Your dashboard is your jumping-off point for starting something fresh
- The template picker. Your custom templates will be available here along with select Miro-made and Community-made Miroverse templates
- The Miro website. You can find all of the Miro-made templates on miro.com/templates
- Miroverse. You can find all of the Community-made templates on miro.com/miroverse
From your dashboard
To add a template board from the dashboard, select a template or click Show all templates to open the template picker. Once you choose a template, a new board will be created.

💡 Facilitators and champions onboarding new users to Miro can take advantage of the How to templates available in the Building Blocks section. Each template includes an image showing where to find the tool, a short gif demonstrating it, and an exercise to try it out. Feel free to use the templates when organizing workshops and meetings.
How to templates
Mix and match templates
You can add as many templates to your board as you need. Combine frameworks and activities from multiple templates to seamlessly continue collaborating on the same board. Simply navigate to the template picker from your chosen board and select any pre-made template or one of your own.
When the template is added, the elements are automatically ungrouped. You can individually click on an object in order to move or edit it. If you'd like to move more than one object at once, you can group them. You can copy template elements and paste them if you need to add more similar items. Feel free to select all elements of a template to move it or delete it if you don't need it on your board.

Creating a custom template
If you constantly rebuild or repeat the same activities, or any time you see people copy pasting a lot, you've found yourself a great candidate for a custom template. Standardize processes and avoid wasting time duplicating efforts by creating and sharing custom templates.
