How do I find out who is the owner of a deleted board (to restore it)?
Hello :)We are working in a board. The one who created the board (and probably the owner) has left the company, but can still log in to miro, but is no longer the owner. But the problem is: somehow none of us is the owner now and the board has been deleted. Since no one is owner (or admin), no one can restore it. Help!How do I find out who is owner or admin?Or is there another way to restore the board?We have already checked all the bins, we could not find the board again.Thanks a lot!
Visitor + Video Chat
n the plan "Starter" visitors can edit the boards again. What about the Video / Audio chat? The help documentation says: "Visitors can not start a video chat"What does that mean in concrete terms? Can I talk to my workshop participants = visitors or not?Can I start a video chat and my visitors can participate or is there basically no video chat for visitors in the "Starter" plan?
"Miro Research Team" Spam?
I received an e-mail from Rewards@ethn.io, following the completion of a user feedback study. I was wondering if this is indeed a spam, as the website itself looks fairly robust and not the ordinary style phishing site. They have not asked for bank details or anything, which is also making me wonder if this is legitimate.Could a member of the community provide any information on this?Many thanks,Mark
Fixed ratio frames switch to custom ratio when changing size
Hi,I wanted to create a frame in A4. When I now want to resize it (by either dragging the corners or edges) the ratio switched to custom ratio and the frame is just resized in, for example, one direction. However, what I wanted was that if I resize the frame the ratio remain the same.Did I miss some feature switch or is this wrong?
Issue with connection to Jira Server
Hi,I’m trying to follow instruction in respect to connect your Jira server with Miro, unfortunately i stuck during authorization. It ask me to use Jira cloud account which is not existing in my case (i have only local account on-premis).Any ideas? Maybe integration with Jira server is no longer supported?
Uploading stopped working on all boards today
Since this morning, on all of my browsers (Safari, Chrome, and Opera) and on the Miro app on my Mac, I am unable to upload files (any format). I have tried creating new boards and uploading to these and it doesn’t work. I have tried clearing my cache on Safari and it doesn’t work. I go to the upload button, then My Device, then the menu disappears and nothing happens. Is anyone else having this problem? Assistance is greatly appreciated.
Figma plugin > sync resets size
I tried the Figma plugin today synching Figma pages into a Miro board as SVG. When I triggered a sync within Figma the linked objects in Miro retained their position but resized to it’s originally imported size. In my experience it made the entire feature completely unusable.Are others experiencing this? Is it an expected behaviour?
The authentication for Miro is possibly the worst experience I've ever had
Miro’s authentication feels like it’s trying to be more secure than my bank, and no, that’s not a compliment.It seems like I have to re-authenticate every other day. Check out the frequency of Google Enterprise accounts for example, miro should NOT be more frequent than that. When I click on a link, and have to re-authenticate, the default is to create a new account. I just clicked on a miro link that someone shared, there’s 90% chance there that the majority of people already have an account and want to just sign in. I sign in with my browser because it doesn’t open the desktop app, but then it loads, so it loads the desktop app, but the desktop app can’t authenticate itself, so it opens a browser page to authenticate, but then after that, it goes back to the desktop app and leaves the tab open. This is ridiculous. The authentication token should be system wide and if I have the desktop app installed, it should default to opening there first if possible, but at the very least, if all
Hi!To track changes on certain Miro board and receive notification at telegram chat I decided to create extremely simple golang telegram bot. It just checks the content of the board and notices when some difference occurs.Share this app and hope someone may find it useful:https://github.com/konstgav/miro-board-telegram-botWill it be useful to improve app and add facility to send link to Miro board via telegram chat? What telegram bot features will be useful?

Its a bug? - Forced pencile draw mode
I use miro quite often on my tablet. Since one of the newer updates, Miro automatically switches back to the drawing tool when I use my samsung pen, but I don't want to do that and it completely hinders my workflow. You can't turn this function off either.Is this a bug or is it supposed to be a feature?
Can't Add Activity to Swimlane
I’ve searched for an answer but there doesn’t seem to be one.I’m having a problem adding an activity to a swimlane. I’ve done numerous process diagrams with swimlanes but this particular one is being a bit of a diva. It is refusing to add any more UML diagram components into the swimlanes. I can select a pre-defined activity, for example within the frame (but not on the swimlanes) and can drag it to where I want it. When I let go of the mouse button, the activity returns to its original place within the frame, outside the swimlanes. The swimlane is not locked. I’m baffled! Does anyone have any clever ideas?

Mobile app usage - editing data inside cells of a table
Dear User community, I am sure that we have more users out there that have faced the problem on the mobile app that it is not possible to edit the data inside the cells of a table. I see that over a year ago this topic was added to wish-list: https://community.miro.com/ideas/edit-tables-on-mobile-app-5845 Has anybody found some workarounds (different feature to use for a table) - to allow users to edit data from the mobile app?
Can you move text for a BPMN object (e.g. decision)
For a BPMN decision (diamond) adding text to the shape appears below it.Sometimes I want the text to be inside the shape, or to the right, so that a connector can descend down from the shape without overlapping the text. Like this The best I can do seems to be to right align the text. which is still pretty ugly. Workaround is to add text not attached to the object. Kinda lame but works. Are there any other options I’m not seeing? Peter
