Welcome to this promotional post for my plugin: Carbon Copy.
The plugin lets you update an idea in one place and sync the idea across widgets everywhere on a Miro board. Give it a try and let me know what you think, how you use it and whether it inspires new ideas. Just share your feedback, it’s all welcome.
This is a personal project, I’m doing it for fun. I will implement some improvements over a few months, if you come across bugs or problems I will fix them more quickly.
Just @mention me in your posts here on the forum, or reply to this message.

Thank you very much it’s a really a great plugin! I highly appreciate all your efforts. This plugin makes working with miro so much more efficient.
Yes, you should be able to see the icons to start sync’ing the widget inside the selected widget’s context menu (where you can change the font size, colours etc.). I think it’s outlined in the videos for the plugin.
...Thanks for replying - I try and work out why it is not showing even though we have it installed and authorised for a Team. Probably something I’m doing! Thanks again.
Thanks for sharing! I am new to Miro but this is a feature I would have wanted to know about for keeping tabs on many spread out projects details that are all spread out but being able to consolidate to a compact dashboard in a different area.
If you dont mind me asking, where did you find resources on the API to create your own widgets? I have some ideas I would like to dabble with as well.
I noticed today the Carbon Copy is no longer functional or available o on Miro.
Has something happened? Do you know if it’s likely to return?
Any updates you’re able to provide would be appreciated.
Sorry that the plug-in stopped working, I think I need to complete the privacy notice hence it was taken down.
I’ve been on holiday and will sort this out early next week, then ping you here.
@Markus Smet! Your plugin is incredible and became a cornerstone for all my Miro templates. I almost lost it when I thought it was eradicated, and am relieved that is not the case. Enjoy your holiday and I look forward to seeing it back on the market.
I feel like I’m missing out and want to get that notification when it goes back online ;)
Thank you, Markus! Amazing news - I’ll be able to repair our templates next week.
Hi Adin and other followers of this thread,
The issue is broader than expected so may take longer to fix. CarbonCopy uses the ‘onSelect’ event to run code and render the icons used to ‘sync’ a widget (like a Note, Shape or Line) into the context Extension Point.
Am working on this with
@Scott from Miro to see what can be done, if necessary I will re-design the app to resolve the icon rendering issue, this could help quite a bit. However that will take time (about 1 month).
If you or anyone else wants access to the app whilst it’s off the marketplace, send me a private message and I can give you a link to install it directly.
Today I started getting a popup on my boards to “Please authorize Carbon Copy.” When I click “Authorize” then I get an error: “We couldn’t install this app. A client must have at least one registered redirect URL.”
I’m not doing anything fancy with my board, and am not syncing data between boards or anything like that. I have never knowingly installed or used Carbon Copy and am not sure what to do. Anyone else having this issue or know anything about it?
A member of your Miro team has installed the Carbon Copy app on your team installed
@Markus Smet‘s Carbon Copy app. However, the app appears to be experiencing issues at the moment.
Depending on your Miro plan type/set up/role, you may be able to uninstall this yourself or at least see who installed it and reach out to them.
You can try:
Once you select the app, you may see who installed it:
If you don’t see the same screens as my screenshots, I would suggest reaching out to some of your Miro team members to ask who installed it.
I’m the author of the plugin. Sorry that’s happened.
If you didn’t install the plugin, did someone in your team add CarbonCopy to your team? That could cause everyone in the team to have to authorise the app.
I am working on a new version of the app that will fix issues and enable your team to install it on a user level from the marketplace so not everyone gets CarbonCopy installed when only one user wants it. We are working as quickly as we can to resolve this.
@Robert Johnson and @Markus Smet! It’s helpful to at least be able to see who installed it- looks like someone else on out team did install it and that’s causing the pop-up for others on the team. It’s just odd because when the others do as the pop-up asks and “Authorize” CC, it fails. I’m trying to reach the person that installed to see if there’s anything they can do because the alternative seems to be uninstalling the plugin for the team at this point.
Thanks for your help!
We are testing v2 of CarbonCopy. It’s code complete and we will push to release this week.
I will update progress here and link to the new version in the marketplace once released.
I’m getting snagged in what I am allowed to do within a Miro board and whilst the new app I’ve built resolves the performance issues I must change how it works again to fit into Miro guidelines.
This will take more time, I would estimate CC won’t be available until end of Sept once everything has been developed, compliance checked and released.
You can still get a functioning version from me via a direct link, just DM me.
CarbonCopy v2 is now code complete and we have a lovely new feature to share. I still have to submit this via Miro’s sign off process to get it into the marketplace, after which I will open a dedicated new thread to it.
Here’s a preview of the new feature, hope you like it :)
CARBONCOPY v2 IS ON THE MARKETPLACE
At last you can once again maintain your duplicate Miro widgets easily with the CarbonCopy plugin.
I will make a new announcement on the forums in the coming days, but for those following this thread here’s a direct link to install from Miro’s marketplace:
I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, please direct me to another post if there’s a ‘wishlist’ specific to Carbon Copy.
I was wondering if it would be possible in Carbon Copy v3 to include sync of ‘groups’. Unfortunately I’m often combining multiple shapes and text together into groups and I would love to be able to sync those objects across my diagrams so they’ll dynamically update.
