SSO: on the desktop app and iPad app I need to supply full credentials and confirm identity on my phone every time I log on
Hey there, My company have just switched to an enterprise account and we now use SSO to access Miro. Works a treat through a browser, but on the desktop app and iPad app I need to supply full credentials and confirm identity on my phone every time I log on. Anyone else have this issue? Andy
Custom Plugin - StickerMan
Surely you have already seen the new "auto-layout" function, I think you liked it. Of course, this new button is really needed, but our small team of programmers has got an idea. We want to make a plugin for Miro users, which adds a new function to make an excellent looking Miro board in a few clicks. After great creative work, you've got a mess all over the board, but we have a solution for it, u can group stickers by any signs (color, size, etc.). The plugin we're working add a "magic wand" button, all u need is just choose stickers u need to group and press the button. U will get an imposing result. What do you think about our idea? Maybe you suggest some options for grouping?
How to have some text more visible than other (or how to hide text)?
I would like to have a bit of text a bit "hidden"/not as visible and some other text more visible in a board - for example: "How to wash your socks" (the title, this is short and this i d like to be very visible) "Take them off, find powder, find washing machine etc... "(this is a lot of text, and i d like to be totally hidden or almost unnoticeable unless I do something to it so I can read it) I tried using a text box and selecting a part of the text as the title and another as the description (bulk of the text) but the problem is that when you select any word in the text box and change the font size then the whole box changes text. So this wont work I also tried "notes" but this is general for the board and not "linked" somehow to an object. This wont work either. "Comments" have the same issue. "Grids" looks like a workaround. Google drive too (but i have to create so many documents..) Do you have some other way like expand/collapse using a button or any other function? Or
Locking components as the board owner
Hi there, Does anybody know if there is a way for the board owner to lock objects down, like templates or structured work spaces, so that editors are able to add content on top but not unlock or move the template? Is there such a thing as a ‘master lock’? That level of control would be so helpful in running workshops with a high number of participants. Thanks!
I noticed in the Program Increment Planning template there are rectangular sticky notes as a shape. How does one use these shapes in other boards other than using this template? Related, if the template was built by a developer, can we just develop our own shapes like that and add them to our toolbar?
Can you lock a Miro board after a workshop
Hi everyone! I sometimes run digital workshops where participants have a link that can edit during a workshop. But they like the tool so much that they often go back to the board they used and look around. How do I lock the entire board so the outcomes of the workshop are not accidentally changed by someone going back to take a look? Thanks in advance, Layla
How can I run workshops with new guests everytime?
Hi, How can I run workshops with new guests everytime. I don't need to create a team. I run workshops at my company for external clients and with every workshop comes new guests. Is there a way to invite guests to a one time workshop, and what would be the best plan to do so? The maximum number let's say every time for a workshop is between 30 and 40. Best, Bassam
Why can't I see a board I created in the Desktop app online?
I created a project and a board using the Desktop app, but I cannot see it through the online interface. Actually, this seems to work both ways - I also can’t see a project/board I created online through the Desktop app. How can I see all my projects in both places?
Editing Microsoft word documents in Miro
Hi, As I write up my thesis, I have real difficulty reading it in work. I am wondering if there is a way of editing it in MIro, so I can write comments, move text - write ideas in comments boxes and zoom in and out as I try and refine the chapter. I have tried pulling the chapter into Miro, but can’t separate the pages. Also tried pulling in text, but again this is a little limited and doesn’t preserve the word document. Does anyone know if this is possible, and if there is a slick way to do this? Thanks for your help Pete
Guest editors weren't able to access via link
Hi everyone I have the consultant plan and was hosting a session today with a group and I used the “public link to board” to create the link for the them all to access as Anonymous Guest Editors. A number of them said they could not access the board: they said when they clicked the link the only option it gave them was to create an account. I’m so puzzled as the majority of the rest of the group, using the exact same link, were able to get on just fine. And it wasn’t just one person having the problem - it was several, and they all said the same thing. Alas I wasn’t able to ask them to take a screenshot to show me. This is the first time I’ve encountered this and I couldn’t find anything to help them troubleshoot it, and didn’t want them to have to set up an account to be able to access it during our session! I’d love to know what to do in the future if this happens, or how to avoid it in the first place. It’s really important for the kinds of sessions I host that people can simpl
Link to search
Dear all. I searched but can't find (if there exists) the answer to this: is it possible to link to a search? A link to a search could help highlight some objects in the canvas. It's like a link, but with multiple (and dynamic, since I can create a link and someone after add other objects that appears into that search results) destinies. Thanks a lot for your time and attention... :)
Issue duplication board
I created a rather large board for two workshops. When I try to to duplicate it, a message on the top of the screen pops up saying “sorry, something went wrong”. Any idea why this is happening? I tried logging out and back in and all different variations of duplication. Still no luck. Copy pasting it onto a new board doesn’t work because, as other users have reported, there are hundreds of items locked and I can’t bundle unlock them - and so they won't get copied...
Can you video chat/screen share with guests who aren't users?
I’m trying to find my way around Miro to analyse if this is a good tool to adopt for real-time remote presentations to clients. In this case, can I create my workshop board and share the link with the client so they can view only that board? And if they can, will they be able to access video/screenshare option so I can conduct the workshop live online without being one of my team members/users?
Need to talk to experienced consultant about sharing
I run workshops and have been using Miro - I am struggling sharing boards with Client participants and would like to engage an experienced user to talk me through sharing and making it easy. I am happy to pay for it - need help asap. I am working with a consultant plan.
How to start fullscreen Presentation Mode?
I’m trying to use presentation mode. The frames are there but they are viewing all the frames instead of a slideshow view. Do I still ‘invite-view only’ ? What if they already are an editor on that board? I even tried screen share and they said they can see the beginning of the next slide (does that mean I made the frames to big? what size should the frames be? frustrated
