Embedding single frames


Userlevel 2

Hi, I’ve been using Miro for graphic representation of number of ideas concerning single topic. While it’s super easy to create multiple graphs on one board and navigate between them using frames, it’s crucial to my workflow to be able to embed those graphs as separate, self-updating objects. Embed links seem to work fine, but they address whole board - not a particular graph.

Is it possible (or is it a planned feature) to separately embed single frames?

Thanks!

Hi @mwojc!

Though there’s currently no option to embed a particular frame, I will be sure to pass your request to the Product team. Currently, you can embed the whole board and set the start view on a particular frame. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to share them in the Wish List :slight_smile:

Yes!  this would be the most useful form of embedding, as it would allow the users to define a “panning scope” to provide a degree of inter board viewing (and seamless authorization for editing). 

 

Conceptually I internalize this as fence (not a frame). the Frame concept is getting really quite overloaded in terms of how they’re used, what they mean and how they’re shared.

A new term like fence could avoid confusion and make it distinct concept that is independent from the functional issues currently plaguing (nested) frames

Ideally, the fence forcibly locks the embedded viewer into subset area of the source board, and provides ability for the creator to lock the view/zoom or allow the user to pan
If the view is locked within the fence, then it’s functionally identical to embedding a frame in presentation mode.  an panning fence give the ability to interactive exploration.

 

 

+1 for embedding single frames. It would be super useful for the clients to explore only the frames they are supposed to

I think this feature is absolutely needed and critical. Win win!!!!

I want this as well.  I have been exploring hacking through the canvas javascript to see how frames are exported to png to try and simulate this with a middleware tool of our own.

I want to embed miro frames into Coda.  Figma allows this with great ease.  I am considering moving to figma from miro for this one feature alone.  We have live documentation and it is a big pain to continuously update it with shifts in the miro collaboration boards … embedding a frame would resolve this.

I feel the same way Colin. This one feature is enough for me to look at another solution. Although I do love Miro.

Yet another +1. Please please please. I want a Miro board that has “all the things” as a sort of master view, and then expose appropriate content through other portals.
