Link to search

Dear all.

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... :)

Hi @Eduardo Mercovich,

This is a very interesting question :relaxed:  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

Hey @Eduardo Mercovich 

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:

  1. There is a process (define, understand, ideate, prototype, test, adjust) that is a spiral.
  2. Then we have a bunch of techniques (~20, they are really different variations of a few basic ones)
  3. and lectures (articles, books, etc.).

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… :)

@Eduardo Mercovich , I see… I’m afraid it is not possible now in MIro core product, but you probably can achieve this with the Miro platform. I think it is possible to create a plugin that will serve your use case. See for more details

Hi Anton.

Even if it goes waaay above my level (I’m on UX, not development), I’ll look into it.

Thanks a lot. :)
