Changing Teams/Projects without Losing Boards on a Free Plan

I was invited to an exploratory project/team to get to know Miro. Based on that experience, I am planning to use it to facilitate a workshop with a different team shortly. I drafted the board, and now that I’m ready to share it, realize that its part of a different project/team than the one I intend it for. My institution has not yet jumped on the Miro bandwagon, so I cannot upgrade my plan in order to create a new project/team. Nor does it make sense to invite the workshop team into the distinct project/team in which the board was created. Nor can I delete the existing project/team (of which I am a member but not owner). 

I’d like to start a new project to share the board with the appropriate team. Is it possible for me to leave the project/team I’m part of and take my board content with me?

@Althea Skinner -

If you are on a free plan, then you’d want to follow the instructions here to take content from a board within the free plan to one within a paid plan: HOW TO: Copy content from a free acount to the company account whiteboard? | Miro

If you are on a paid plan, you could just download a board backup to an RTB file and then restore it to the target account.


Thanks, Kiron. My company will not allow me to start a paid plan. I am on a free plan and am trying to leave on project/team and start another on my free plan without losing content. Is that possible?

Unfortunately if you leave the team you are in, you’d lose access to the boards within it. And with a free plan, I don’t believe you could actually create another team without leaving the one you started with. @Marina, any suggestions?

Hi @Althea Skinner,

Please reach out to the Support team. They will be able to create your own free team for you :slight_smile:

After that, you will be able to move this board to your new team (if it is associated with the same email).

Perfect, have done so - thanks, Marina!
