Interactive Presentation Mode allows collaborative teams to present their Miro boards in any kind of meeting with the highest level of interactivity and flexibility.
Presenting with Miro
Ways to present in Miro
Miro offers three ways to present: Board, Frames, and Activities.
Guide collaborators through the board by navigating across the canvas in free mode. Your participants will follow your view on the board in full screen.
Present your board as a slideshow presentation. Each frame acts as a slide. You can switch between the frames by using the arrow icons in the presenters toolbar at the bottom of your screen, or use your arrow keys.
You can change the order of your slides in advance in the board overview, found in the bottom-left corner of your board. While presenting your frames or slides, you can also pan around to other parts of the board and then return to presenting your frames by clicking on the arrow in the presenter bar.
Present frames with activities to help facilitate a more collaborative session — great for workshops and guided meetings.
Open the Activities panel to add activity apps to frames, and change participant permissions for collaboration tools.
How to present
Click on the arrow next to the Present button in the top-right corner of your board and select one of the present options.
If you directly click Present, the presentation mode will depend on whether you have frames. If you’ve added frames to your presentation you’ll present in Frames mode. If not, you’ll present in Board mode.
You can exit presentation mode by pressing Escape on your keyboard, or by clicking Stop in the toolbar at the bottom of your screen.
Three ways to present in Miro
Managing presentation frames
Miro frames are the slides of your presentation. You can manage your frames by clicking on the sidebar icon in the lower left-hand corner of your Miro board. This will open up the Frames panel. From there you can set the order of frames by simply clicking and dragging the frames on the sidebar.
You can rename a frame by clicking on the field below the frame. If you click on the three dots next to a frame's name, you’ll also have more options to hide the frame, export the frame, add another frame, copy the frame link, and delete the frame.
💡 Use Magic organize to rearrange frames automatically.

As soon as you click Present either in the collaboration toolbar or in the sidebar panel, you'll begin presentation mode.
As soon as the presenter launches the presentation, the other participants on the board will see a modal with the option to join.
The option to join a presentation
When participants join, they’ll be guided by the presenter's view. They can move around the board and switch back to the presenter’s view by clicking Return to presenter.
The presentation experience remains interactive: participants can use reactions or raise their hand by selecting the corresponding options on the bottom toolbar.
On the left-hand creation toolbar they can use tools allowed by the presenter.
Users interacting with the board
Keep your audience engaged and focused. You can seamlessly transition between a slide-like and canvas-like presentation of content in Miro.
Lightbox effect: Create a black border around frames so users can see exactly which content you're currently focused on. If you pan away or zoom out, the lightbox effect fades away.
Go to the presenter toolbar at the bottom of the screen, click Preferences > toggle on Dark background.
Toggling on Dark background for a lightbox effect
Click to zoom: Spotlight content during your presentation. Simply click to zoom in on any frame. Miro also identifies clusters of objects outside of frames, so presenters can zoom in to highlight activities or content anywhere on the board.
