Hi Sikandar PF,

Other users will probably add more personal feedback, but I’ll just provide some general information on this topic. 

The current implementation of our integration only allows for one-way data upload - from Miro to Airtable. You can embed your Miro boards in Airtable as blocks, but not vice versa. You can learn more about how the integration works in this Help article.

As a workaround, you can generate a shared base link of your Airtable base and embed it to an existing Miro board using the iFrame Embed widget. After that, your base will be embedded into Miro in a read-only mode. You can also upload an exported .csv Airtable spreadsheet to your board or paste stickies from spreadsheets.
 

Hope this helps !

I’m following these steps with no luck.

I get a static box instead of an embed view.

Hello @SikandarPF @Yvain and @David Lopez 

How can I link Airtable board into Miro?

@Julien - From reading the Miro Airtable app and Help Center article documentation, the app allows you to embed Miro boards into Airtable bases and not the other way around - as per the Airtable Help Center article:

 

If you wish to embed an Airtable object a Miro board, I would suggest that you refer to the following Airtable Support article:

There seems to be a new behavior with embedding an airtable view in Miro. 

 

Previously, after copying the iframe code from Airtable and using the embed tool, I would get something like this.

 

I would click on the object and the embedded view would pop up over the Miro board showing the desired records. No new tabs would open. The view would sit on top of the Miro board. Here is a snippet.

 

 

About a week ago I tried adding a new Airtable view iframe snippet and now I am seeing what David has posted. Obviously clicking on this now opens a new tab presenting the view. This defeats one of the great features of Miro when sharing a board via Google Meet: presenting everything from Miro and avoiding leapfrog with Chrome tabs. I hope the original embed behavior returns. Whether it does or not, at least some notification would be appreciated.

 

 

I get the same problem. I can generate the iframe code in airtable. But when I embed it into a miro board I just get a black box. It will not load the airtable spreadsheet. 

 

 

Hi, we have the same problem – is there still no satisfying workaround? We would love to embed an airtable sheet to our miro board. Thank you!

Make sure you are pasting the link you find here (partly covered with orange in the screenshot): 

 

 

☝️ That worked for me.

However, when I enable the option “Restrict access to an email domain” I get the same error:

 

 

Enabling every other option except protecting by domain still renders fine.


However, with password protection enabled, even though it renders fine, I can’t enter the password, and therefore it can’t be used:
