Miro features for ideation & brainstorming
As soon as you open your first Miro board you get access to various tools that allow you to think in many formats.
The easiest way to pop down your ideas is sticky notes. Use the bulk mode to create many stickies at once.
Adding sticky notes in bulk
Assign tags and emojis to sticky notes, change colors, and cluster your stickies. Once you are ready to put your ideas into action, feel free to transform them into tasks by converting your sticky notes into cards or Jira Cards and add them to Miro Kanban - a universal task tracker.

You can even digitize your real-life brainstorming session with Miro: use stickies capture to convert physical sticky notes into editable Miro stickies.

Miro is a perfect fit for online brainstorming sessions providing a set of collaborative tools designed to make your team meetings more effective.
Three, two, one... Let's brainstorm! Sticking to the agenda is a key point of a productive online meeting. Set up the timer and spend several minutes on individual thinking. The timer can be initiated by invited board editors. You will find timer on the bottom-left toolbar.

Discover the best ideas with the voting tool. Set up a voting session with several clicks: select duration, number of votes per person, and voting area. You can also prepare voting sessions in advance and save them to let your team vote later.
Use reactions to show your emotions here and now while your collaborators present their ideas. Just pick a reaction near your avatar in the top-right corner and it will be displayed for everyone on the board.
