I searched but can't find (if there exists) the answer to this: is it possible to link to a search?
A link to a search could help highlight some objects in the canvas. It's like a link, but with multiple (and dynamic, since I can create a link and someone after add other objects that appears into that search results) destinies.
Thanks a lot for your time and attention... :)
This is a very interesting question I’m afraid we don’t have this functionality. Can this be achieved with just a link to an object? In this case, you will have one link for each widget.
It’s not the same. We already have object linking and it works flawlessly (and thanks a lot for that). ;)
However, this proposal of linking to a search would highlight not only many objects, but also objects that can change over time, son they are previously unknowable (and unlinkable).
Let’s see and example: imagine we have an ongoing work with a Team in which things are categorized (tagged) and we create/add new objects (lectures, techniques, whatever) as we go forward.
In this scenario, if we have a link to a tag search, every new day the found/highlighted objects will change (or just be added, newer ones), since the tags are fundamental and the tagged contents change with time.
In case of a Dev Team (not my case, but exactly as valid) if we have a kanban and the cards (tasks) are given tags (1 or more) by Chapter/group (say, platform, development, ux, sales, etc.) I can make objects that represent those groups and it would be easy to see/highlight (search) the tasks that somehow need them.
The tasks will change, but the Chapter/Team structure (tags), won’t. It applies the same if instead of Chapters were people assigned. With a click, I can filter the canvas to see only those things I’d need to see.
Maybe this example is a bit more convoluted than what is needed, but it’s just to explain. :)
Am I a bit more clear? What other people think or feel about this proposal?
Thanks a lot for your attention and time… :D
Thanks for the explanation. Am I right that you intend to use this functionality for project management approaches?
Not really… I’m giving a UX course. The conceptual map is simple:
I gave each step of the process a color and a tag. Each technique and lecture (T&L) is tagged according to the step in which is more appropriate or useful. With time, we will add techniques and lectures.
I would love if clicking on the step would highlight those T&L more relevant to the activities on that step… :)
> [...] I think it is possible to create a plugin that will serve your use case. See https://miro.com/api/ for more details.
Even if it goes waaay above my level (I’m on UX, not development), I’ll look into it.
Thanks a lot. :)
