Is it possible to add a “sticker” to either the Grid or Frame widgets using the Miro REST API? I’m successfully adding “stickers” to boards at specified x and y co-ordinates, but I can’t seem to find a way of setting the “stickers” parent.
So, I had a miro account and I created a random team to just test out the platform. I didn’t needed it anymore. So, i went to delete that team and ended up deleting my account somehow. I received an email and messages on miro that your account has been deleted :/ I want to reactivate my account with my old email address. I am allowed to login on here in this miro community somehow but when I login to miro.com, the website just keeps on loading and it never finishes. So any help would be appreciated
I am planning to run a collaborative workshop next week - there are probably going to be 12-13 participants. I am a little concerned about the visibility of all participants on screen (joining by video chat). I have never tried anything with so many. I have seen elsewhere that that participants will be stacked up on top of each other with a slider iof more than 3 or 4? And everybody will have to manually move up and down to see who is talking? What’s the best practice for handling this kind of situation? First time I have done this on Miro, I am quite anxious. I also have seen that some people run Zoom/Teams alongside instead? But my concern there would be that the whiteboard screen would end up being pretty small on Miro if half the screen is taken up with Zoom?
I have been added to a “dashboard” account by my admin, but its not recognizing me in this new upgrade account (I went through the link provided in the dashboard email as well as tried a incognito) --- and still recognizes me as a older account user login (not giving me the upgrade option) Any advice?
Hi guys, hope you can help me out! So, I just discovered that none of the teams listed on my profile are “mine”. I.e. I’m not “Team admin” in any of the teams.. (turns out i’ve used a friends board for months, which was called “My team” #facepalm). How can it be that I don’t have my own team? I’m using the free plan, but you do get your own team when you sign in, right?
Hey All, I’m looking for some tips on doing effective voting in a Miro board. We’re holding an ideation session and need to run several rounds of “dot voting” on post-its to prioritize both needs to address and concepts. We’ll be using different sets of criteria for each round of voting (e.g. most differentiated, most aligned with our purpose). There will be 10 participants and we’re trying to set all the activities up in the board ahead of time. I’m experimenting with the voting plug in but it seems like I can only create a voting session in the moment as opposed to setting up the parameters and saving the session for future use. Does anyone know if it’s possible to set a voting session up ahead of time? Should we be thinking about voting in a different way? One alternative is to have participants do the emoji commenting instead. What have you guys had success with?
I’m currently working on a few boards that I started before I was completely familiar with the scale of the canvas and now I’m seeing that they are at <1%. Is there a fast way to fix this? I can’t zoom in anymore cause it’s at the lowest %. I don’t know how this happened, so would like to know the best way to start a new board so that I don’t have this issue again.
Hi there, I’m currently on the team plan and I’m running a workshop tomorrow for 12 people that are outside of my organization. I see that there is a beta feature where I can add them and allow them to edit the board. Will this suffice or do I need to switch licenses and then pay for day passes? Are there any disadvantages to doing it this way? Thanks! Best, Josh
Hi, in case I would leave my company I’d want to have my account and profile deleted by my company admin. This works. But does this include also each and every comment I posted on other boards or is just about deleting my own boards? To be concrete => is there a way to find work items, comments or any action feed history that’s related to my name or account?
Let’s say I’m on a consulting plan and want to provide access to my boards to some of my clients via day passes: Is it possible to give them access to my boards as editors without the need that they create a Miro account or registration in general? Background: I’m living in a country where data privacy is an important concern. So some of my clients are concerned about registering for your platform and would like to completely avoid this. Technically, I’m thinking about sharing links with corresponding access rights (like Google or OneDrive does it) where my clients just need to enter their names. Is this or any other solution possible in Miro?
I feel like I am losing my mind. I have two Miro accounts - one for work with my employer and another for independent consulting work. For both accounts, I have a seat on a number of teams, both free and paid. In some scenarios, when I am logged into Miro either through the latest stable version of Google Chrome or the Miro Windows 64-bit desktop app version 0.3.37 (Windows 10 in both scenarios), I can click-and-drag to re-order the teams. Here’s an example of my moving the “PE” team to the top: So… right after I captured this screenshot, I tried closing the app, re-opening it, and then I could not re-order anymore(?). Then I went into a board and then, with that board still open in its own tab in the Miro Windows app, I went back to the “Boards” tab and now I could re-order the Teams - I repeated these steps three times and was able to reproduce the same behaviour, so, I believe this is probably a bug. My question to anyone out there is: Can you re-order your Teams from your D
Hi, I run virtual group programs and workshops. All attendees are using the same templates, but need their own “work areas”. Is there a way I can do this in Miro? Here’s the process: Teach a Framework They do it by themselves I bring one up for a “hot seat” where I provide feedback Repeat for Framework 2, 3, 4, 5 Right now I’m using Google slides and it’s alright. I like the ability to “check in” on where attendees are at like when you’re walking the room in a live workshop. Think a “tab” in Google sheets where I can move onto that next framework when we’re done with the first one. For example, I wouldn’t all 5 frameworks on there because it would be overwhelming. I want to bring the frameworks when they’re done with part 1, 2, etc. I’m really hoping Miro can do this. Thanks!
In Miro Desktop App or Miro Mobile & Tablet App I would like to add a link to a board pointing to another board and when this link is clicked it would open a new tab and not direct me to the browser. IMHO, Miro should have support Deep Links when using the native apps. For those not familiar with the concept of Deep Links / Dynamic Links, this video explains it well.
Hi! I research autism and sexuality. I am convening a 2-hour brainstorming workshop with stakeholders in the autism community to come up with sexuality-related guidelines. I can’t tell: -- how many people will be able to collaborate on Miro brainstorms at one time (we expect around 70 though it could be way more or less since this is online) -- if they will all need accounts or if I can send them a link that allows them to work with me without an account I’m willing to pay some money (though I am but a lowly postdoctoral fellow without big research monies for this project). Just...can’t tell if this platform will work for this. Thanks for any help!!
What’s the best way to delineate action items in a mind map so that it’s easy (and potentially automated) to import a mind map into a project management system, or at least to make it easier for a project manager to quickly see action items? I could just use icons, but I’m wondering if there’s something slicker and/or more elegant. Thanks!
Hey everyone and thanks a lot in advance for your help, hopefully someone could help me understanding the following situation: Requirement: Only team admin should be able to invite new members to boards Actual situation: regular members can invite new people to a board On the screenshot you should be able to see the following situation: On the left side: logged in as an admin On the right side: logged in as a regular member on an occasional license Desired outcome: the user on the right should not be able to invite people to the board Probably I’ve overseen a setting but unfortunately, at the moment I don’t know what is wrong with my settings. Best Regards and thanks a lot in advance for your help, Christoph
When retrieving all the widgets for a board, you appear to get the x and y but the width and height is not set or is missing. For assets like the AWS icons there isn’t even a reference to the icon being used for the widget that I can see? I am trying to create a tool that will update the board by placing tickets around a given widget on the board. I have done this fine with Draw.io because the position and dimensions of each object is available, but with the miro api those values appear to be missing? Hopefully this is just user error and any guidance would be appreciated
I have a free plan, which includes three active boards for my team. I want to change which of the boards in our workspace are the active ones, but I can’t seem to do that. How do I change the status so the board I don’t need any longer is the inactive one? It was created by another user in my workspace who is just a member, not an admin, but that board is being set as active instead of one I created as an admin.
