Сlick on a box to "drill down" and go to a frame somewhere else on the same board or different board

Hi,

Essentially designing a complex software system.

It will have multiple programs that relate to each other. Each program will have details.

So thinking I’d draw a diagram with the multiple programs, but then I’d like to click on one of those program squares (or cards, or what have you) and have miro zoom to a frame (I guess) that contains all my thoughts on that particular app.

Sorry for the noob question, hopefully there is an easy way to do this.

Thanks.

Perfect use case for the internal links in Miro.

I’ve done that exact thing in a system diagram with a link to jump out/over to the area with more thoughts. 

Here’s more on how to do internal and external links in Miro.

Hmm, I don’t spot a way to make “click on this box” follow the link to the internal frame?

Seems I need to find the link in the box and click on it?

 

I also tried doing “copy link” of the frame and pasting it to the board, but it just creates a box with a miro.com sign up message...

@Peter Galvin - It’s hard to follow what you are doing without screenshots, or better yet a video - Loom is quick and easy (and free!).

Here is an example of creating a link to a frame, from a sticky note:

And from text:

Ah perfect. Was hoping the whole box would be clickable to go to the link, but this should work. Thanks.

@Peter Galvin - You're welcome. Myself and at least 54 others would also like for the whole object to be a clickable link - please join us by adding your vote to this Wish List Idea:
