How to access Miro boards offline in Airplane Mode?


Userlevel 4

Hi!  I go off the grid every Monday and yesterday was my first day to evaluate which apps depend on the cloud.  Unfortunately, Miro doesn’t seem to deal with this scenario very gracefully:

 

How does Miro support offline use?   I’d like at the very least, be able to view my boards read-only and it would be a bonus to create new boards offline to be uploaded and seen by my team later.

This is a must-have. Please help to implement this.

Preparing for my first 11 hour flight since I adopted Miro for both, group collaboration and personal scrap booking. The lack of an offline mode really sucks. Already upvoted the wishlist item, and I hope it can get done soon.

@Jens Hein 

what is the point of the desktop app without this at all?

A few reasons:

  • Miro will not be impacted by any installed browser extensions.
  • you can do all of your web browsing in the browser without impacting your Miro experience, e.g., many of us have multiple browser tabs/site open which eventually leads to everything slowing down.
  • There can be more Miro screen real estate - I always have my bookmarks bar exposed in Chrome, which isn’t present in the Miro desktop app.

Have just - once again - been trying to use Miro during a train ride and it was horrible.

This would be so useful for the users that surely most promote (and potentially subscribe to) Miro: (Agile) Coaches and Trainers!

Nowadays our work falls into 2 big categories:

  • Remote and onsite

And while you are on your way to the onsite part of it, that’s a perfect opportunity to prepare anything!

I also assume that this groups of people are more likely to understand the importance of being offline and in focus mode for these types of work than normal people.

 

But it would surely also be useful for PO’s that like to update their backlog without getting distracted, developers who use it to map out some ideas, anyone that uses it to just brainstorm, collect and organise thoughts and so many others ..

 

And one point that I’ve constantly found myself wondering about:

what is the point of the desktop app without this at all?

Why would I download and install an app that does not have any additional features?

I’d really be interested in an answer on this one.

Preparing a presentation offline while travelling to customers meetings is very important to me. It would be great to be able to do that

@Diego Gomez - In addition to @Henrik Ståhl’s comments, Miro does not share their product roadmap/backlog with the public.

Some options would be to 

  1. subscribe to Miro’s official Changelog
  2. subscribe to the Project news channel of this forum
  3. monitor the Dark Mode / Night Mode Wish List idea post to see if it gets tagged as BETA or DEVLIVERED, e.g., https://community.miro.com/ideas/clustering-beta-6964

@Diego Gomez No. They might choose not to build an offline mode at all, this is just a Wish List idea after all.

Do we have an ETA for offline mode? 

Just got off a 7 hour flight on which i was going to draw up a presentation in Miro.

Oh, hold on a minute, offline mode ??

i’ll use keynote instead…

Here is one answer:

But till now for me no reason to switch … GDPR is for me a more serious reason when you’re in Germany … 

Michael who wishes a good start into 2022:tada::champagne:

Is there any development on creating an offline mode? I need it!!

Definitely needed!

I don’t even use the collaboration feature for most of my docs. I really need offline mode. Such a great app but the lack of this feature is a deal breaker for me and lack of resolution on this in a year shows that the dev team isn’t taking this matter seriously.

when is Miro available with an offline mode?!

I was considering moving my planner to Miro, it has all the right tools except offline mode. Would be really nice to have the option to save and edit a board on my device.

@Saki Solis :

I hope that this will change in a future version of miro … this will bring miro a big step forward to give it more flexibility ...

I learned the hard way that this feature isn’t available. I unexpectedly ran out of data last night with no way to get internet connection until this late morning:disappointed_relieved: . I tried to be productive and use the Miro app on my laptop but NOPE! How is working offline not a feature yet???:rage:

I often do projects in a rural area in Indonesia, and unable to access Miro because of a connection problem is an absolute nightmare. I hope there’s an offline mode option to maximize Miro’s versatility

I support this request by 100%, even though I am just starting with Miro. It seems perfect in what it can do, but I work internationally and in places where the internet is often shaky. For me, not being able to read or work offline is a complete deal-breaker. Sorry for this. h.

Hey @Harald Modis you can go here https://community.miro.com/wish-list-32/offline-mode-925 and up vote to this feature, I do not know how many votes to they need but hope it will be growing.

 

Thanks,

Ed

@chinarut @Eduard & @Cliff Walters :

I love not only the idea - for me it is an absolute must if I like to create further ideas alone without beeing able to get online.

So it should be possible to work offline and when I am online it should automaticly update the board.

Hi @chinarut @Cliff Walters :

@Eduard did the first step into the right direction:

He placed this offline-wish into the wishlist-section - thats exact what needs to be done.

https://community.miro.com/wish-list-32/offline-mode-925

So everyone who read this and wants to have this:
Vote for it by clicking the vote button.

Please Eduard would you do this, too.

I voted also for it because I love the idea.

I agree Eduard.  I’m sorry for the miscommunication, but I’m a user just like you.  I was addressing the miro team in my comment above.  I quoted what miro has said in the recent past about offline mode just so it was there for anyone who sees this.
