Nested Boards - Embedding a Miro board within a Miro board

I would like to be able to nest a board or a frame from one board inside another board (a smart link). 

Basically it would be like the Fig-Miro plugin functionality but between board and with the ability to have auto update. 

I want that whenever the nested board or frame is updated the visual changes in the board will trickle up to the board it is nested in. Think of it as a visual window to another board that updates upon board load.

I don’t need to be able to edit the nested board or frame while in the hosting board so the link between the boards in visual only.

It would be great if I can choose to keep the updating link or sever the link or make the update automatic. 

Why?

Sometimes the work that I do is cross domains. Now every board is a domain of its own.

The ability to view an updated information from another board is very valuable.

So why not copy paste? Because it requires a lot of maintenance and going back and forth between the boards. 

How the flow will look like?

  1. Go to host board
  2. Create a frame 
  3. Select the frame
  4. Link to external board
  5. Select external board
  6. Entire board/frame in board
  7. The frame will show the board or the frame in the hosting board as an uneditable element with the control of Sizing and cropping only.

Hi @Oz Shaar Moshe! There are a couple of Wish List posts about “master frames/nested frames,” here's one you should consider upvoting:
