Copying not allowed from previous board

I created a board with my colleagues in one team. I want to copy parts of this board to another team’s board. When I try to copy elements I always receive the error message "copying not allowed from previous board”. How to solve that?

Kind regards,

Hey @Michael Spiller 

Welcome to the Miro Online Community!

Please have a look at this resource

I just encountered this problem. I build some content on a shared board for the board owner. I wanted to copy my work onto my own board for future use. NOPE. But I can copy from my board onto someone else’s. 

Two ways forward: 

1. Right now, ask the other board owner to copy from their board onto my own board.  
2. In the future, create work on your own Miro board and then copy and paste into someone else’s.

@Michael Spiller and @Robert Kienzle -

@Robert Johnson did a great write-up of Miro’s copy content permissions model here:
