Open a simple spatial table and view the tables result

Follow these steps to get going quickly with the Spatial Tables app. Install the app if you have not done so already.

Open the app by choosing it from the list of installed apps in your left Miro Creation toolbar.

Open a spatial table

  1. Navigate to an empty portion of your Miro board, as new items will be placed in this area.

  2. Select the "Getting Started" drop-down menu.

  3. Click on the button present in the getting started section

  4. Read through the information on the pop-up page that opens, and then click the OK button once the page has fully loaded.

  5. Take a moment to examine the spatial table that appears on your Miro board. This is a very simple spatial table, but it effectively illustrates how you can describe information visually. The sticky notes in the spatial table shows some of the steps you can follow to take full advantage of the Spatial Tables app.

  1. Notice how sticky notes are utilized as data items, representing individual pieces of information stored in the spatial table. Note that text boxes can also function as data items under some conditions.

  2. Observe the use of the grey rectangle shapes and text box labels to assign categories (Now, Next, Later), which help organize and group related data items visually.

View the results table

  1. Use your mouse to select all content that should be included in the data analysis. The selection should cover everything included in the spatial table from the previous section (labels, rectangles, and sticky notes).

  2. Click on the "View Results Table" button located in the app panel to convert the spatial table data to table view as shown below.

  1. Notice how the table provides a structured view of your information, making it easy to read and analyze.

  2. Observe how data items and label categories are organized and displayed in a clear and concise format for efficient information retrieval and analysis.

You can change the column width by moving their edges in the header. You can also sort and filter the table.

  1. Click on the Download CSV file button to download the file which you can then open in another application such as a MS Excel, Google Sheets, Notion, or Airtable. Each of these applications can be used as your data repository for you visual data defined in Miro.
