Introducing the new hide and reveal setting for frames – manage what frames are hidden and visible on your shared boards and control when content is revealed to your participants during meetings and workshops.

Board owners can now control visibility of frames.

Hide content so that it stays private until the right moment to share it.  Stay in control of when content is revealed on the board so you can set the stage, design workshops content step-by-step, and maintain a private space on your boards. Available on all paid plans.

Hey Miro Team,
i just bought the “starter” subscription but can´t find the “hide and reveal” feature, which is very powerful.

Is it (currently?) not available, or how could I get it?

Thanks for your reply.

Antonio

I have a question here for the Miro team (or educated users).

Can I use this feature already with Standard license or do I require a Business license to use this feature?  I am deciding whether to buy a license based on this information. 

Thanks in advance. 

Frames seem very  clunky when it comes to presenting a Mind Map to an audience and not what I envisioned at all.  😥😥
Even Powerpoint can handle nodes/objects appearing in order, and the connectors should appear once the node/objects appear.

@MarianBW - I do not work for Miro and am only a volunteer moderator of this forum.

I can say that I noted this behavoiur myself and opened a ticket with the Miro support team who acknowledged there is a bug to which a fix is currently under development. This bug is allowing any editor (team member, visitor, or guest) to be able to both hide and unhide and frame on the board via the frames sidebar.

Dear Community,

in all my Miro boards, visitors can unhide content (they can´t hide, though). That does not really make sense, right? Is that a bug?

Does anyone else experience that behavior, too? Or do I miss some board preference?

Best,

Marian

Frames that are hidden can only be unhidden by the board owner or co-owner.

Please show us an example of what you mean by “hidden” using a screenshot, or better yet, a screen recording - Loom is free and easy to use and share a video. 

Dear Robert,

like Anette already stated: Visitors can unhide frames just by clicking on the corresponding entry in the sidebar.

Can you tell your dev team to fix that

Best,

Marian

I got the same problem :-(!!!!

 

I have the same problem as MarianBW. All visitors can unhide content if they click on the frame directory :-(. On the board itself, they can’t...

Is there a way to only make a frame visible to the facilitator/board owner? Sometimes I want to hide a section of the board from participants so they’ll focus on the topic/task at hand, but at the same time I sometimes need a reminder of what’s coming next. My memory isn’t what it used to be. 😕

Any update on the function to have multiple owners of a board so that people facilitating the training can all unhide content?

While I like this idea in principle - it’s nice to be able to temporarily hide content - I also have a major complaint: Only the board owner can unhide.

Okay, sure, there’s value for cases when an owner doesn’t want folks to be able to access things. (Perhaps it must be kept confidential, or temporarily under wraps.)

But currently we’re stuck due to the board owner being out-of-office, with non-confidential content that we need to unhide.

Net-Net, please PLEASE expand this ability to all board participants. And at least give us the option to hide content in such a way, that everyone can unhide it if they wish!

How can I select a person or group to hide the frame, but be visible to me?

Love this feature! I would like my co-worker to have access to it as well, but there can only be one board owner. Please add a way more than one person can do it, either via super-role, or multi-owner, or special permissions, etc. Thanks!

Hello,

It would be great if owners could edit (and see) hidden content while others can't.

We work in real time with clients so we wouldn't want to show unfinished content.

Please make frame hiding/unhiding possible by editors as well. It’s absurd and impractical that only the board owner can control those...I frequently hide content as we facilitate and I need other co-facilitators to have the ability to unlock it.

Userlevel 1

Yep we also run workshops with multiple facilitators and we create boards to be used by several people so we don’t benefit fully from this much needed feature until it is extended to editors or co-owners :)

Will keep moving “blankets” around to cover frames ;P

Hey everyone and thank you for your feedback!
@Brian Fulghum the feature is available on Android app, please check it out!
Also, we double checked with @Peter Green and Hide frame works in this case: you hide a frame on your board, copy frame to someone’s board. The board owner of that board can reveal that frame as an owner of the board.

This is a great feature and we use it a lot in Tuataramente (www.tuataramente.org) :grin:

Our only concern is about hide/reveal privileges. We usually work in pairs but only the owner of the board can hide and reveal the frames. That’s ok when the owner also facilitates a session but. it would be great if you could grant hide/reveal privileges to other members of your team.

Would it be possible?

Thanks!! You are doing an awesome work with Miro, we are in love :heart_eyes:

Manu.

Can only the owner hide and reveal frames? Is there any way to have multiple owners? We do presentations as a team and many of us would need to reveal different frames.

 

I just tried it with two browsers logged in on different team member accounts and find that only the owner has that control. other team members are Editors and do not. Guests do not.  It might be a good suggestion for the Ideas page - allow pages to have co-owners.

Like others I find this very useful, and now would like to see it expanded such that the hidden frame is shadowed out in the Frames list or presentation view. 

This aides navigation in particular on a board with many frames and as a participant I want to navigate back by rejoining a workshop due to say network drop or having stepped out for a meeting and now returning.

 

Love the hide feature - but it would be great if the the frames that have been hidden don’t appear when you go into presentation mode.

I love this feature! I’m using it already and find it helpful for keeping partipants from wandering too far ahead.

 

I noticed that frames that are hidden cannot be revealed when using the Android app (lock/unlock does work in Android, so I hope hide/reveal is avialalbe soon too.)
