Dear Miro Community,
Here in the online community, you have a chance to help make Miro better by sharing your ideas for product improvements!
We’ve compiled frequently asked questions and some recommendations on the Community Wish List and how to submit your ideas in the most effective way.
1. What is a Wish List?
Wish List is a category for product ideation, where you can share your ideas on Miro’s functionality with the community and the Miro team, discuss and upvote ideas of other members.
2. Tips & tricks to write a perfect idea 💯
✨A clear title that accurately summarises your request.
✨One idea per post - if you have multiple ideas, submit them separately so that we can be clear about the status.
✨Your idea should be new - before you post an idea, please search to see if it exists. If a similar idea has already been published, upvote it and leave your comment there, instead of creating a duplicate.
✨Explain your idea fully and clearly, add as many details as possible. Make sure to answer the following questions in the description:
- What is your use case?
- What problem are you trying to solve?
- Is it a critical feature that blocks you from working in Miro and being productive, or is it a nice to have feature?
- What is a possible solution for you?
Make sure to check a couple of examples
Title: Download button
Description: It would be great to have a possibility to manage access to a “download” image option
Title: Ability to enable / disable 'download' button
It would be great to have a possibility to manage access to a “download” image option:
Currently, all users (guests - even viewers, occasional team members, full team members) are allowed to download any graphics file we have uploaded to the board.
Many times we and our partners use copyrighted or licensed graphics that cannot be either copied further or shared in its original form to a third party. When we use Miro now, any user with access to the board can download the file. I know that a malicious person can make a screenshot of an image, but there is a huge difference between taking a screenshot of scaled graphics and downloading a full, original image (often with full opacity, when PNG).
THE (POSSIBLE) SOLUTION
It would be great to add board-level option to manage a setting which kind of user can access the “download” button, for example:
team members only
team members, occasional members
guests, team members, occasional members
Or a list of checkboxes with each category to pick its own combination.

You may vote for as many ideas as you want
You may cast only one vote per idea.
5. What statuses are there and what do they mean?
Currently, we have three idea statuses:
Idea - the idea has been submitted. Vote and comment to support the idea.
Beta - the feature is there for select users and we are still testing it.
Delivered - you can enjoy a new feature in Miro!
6. When will the idea be implemented?
Miro product team is keeping a close eye on the Community Wish List. Here are a few examples of the features from this list that shipped in the past few months:
Miro Community Forum is one of the key data points we use to inform our product roadmap. If we are working on a feature and know the ETA we typically reach out to our community members offering them to participate in an early access program to give us feedback.
If you're open to sharing your experience using Miro, things that work for you, and the gaps in your workflow you're looking to fill, we will share this with the product team, and they may circle back with you to set up an in-depth user interview or a user testing session.
Hope you are still finding enough value in Miro even in the absence of some features. We also encourage you to check out our changelog that we update weekly with all of the new & exciting features our product team ships to help our users stay productive and inspired at all times!
Happy collaboration, and stay tuned
