Actually, this issue pertains to one of my team members. During our meeting, we had an unexpected discussion, and she used the board without logging into the website. After the meeting, she assumed that the board she used would be automatically saved and sent to her Gmail. However, she later realized that she hadn't logged in or signed up. Fortunately, she has the link to the board she used, but when she tries to open it, she encounters the following error (please refer to the screenshot below). Despite being the owner of the board, she's unable to access it. How can she regain access to it?
Doesn’t matter how many times I close, the ‘New Features unlocked” pop-up comes right back at me each time I open a new board. Am finding it rather distracting, and increasingly annoying.Is it just me or anyone else out there experiencing the same and want to kill it with fire?
Hi! I’m trying to create a birds eye view of my team’s sales territory. We will organize clients into four quadrants (2 axis chart) I have 5 sales reps. I would like all of our accounts/logos to be on the same view, but I’d like to be able to filter by sales rep. So in the main view I’d like to be able to see all 250 accounts in our territory. And then when I activate a filter for “Bob’s clients”, I’d like to be able to remove all the accounts that don’t belong to him, so I can see his highest potential accounts, and his lowest potential. I’d like this filter to be one click of possible. The best way I can think of is to use sticky notes and have tags on the sticky notes by the sales reps name, and then I can use the tag as a filter. Is there a better way. Dino
To visually “pimp” my frames I have combined several objects (lines, box, logo) and grouped these.For a session I put this group into a frame and lock both. When I later notice, I have to move this frame elsewhere and unlock it, the objects for the “branding” are simultaneously ungrouped. It is very cumbersome to then re-group the items, especially, when the frame includes content, that should remain ungrouped.What do I do wrong, Can anyone help?BTW, I do not want to have my “branding” as a picture, because I need to adjust part of it for the individual frame (topic/chapter) / session (name of training)
Sticky Notes sometimes just don’t appear after the mouse click. Happens when I select the sticky notes tool in the left panel or when I press “N”. I checked and they are also not created in the background. Selecting a different tool and then again the sticky notes solves the issue. This is quite annoying.
When I place a table inside a frame, and remove the table “title” and export to PDF, the title of the table is included as placeholder HTML tags:Is there any way to stop this via options or key press combination? I have tried removing the title, but that adds an empty <br> tag, and subsequently any text added back in retains these ghost HTML tags.
I pay for this service to be able to save my MIRO board to a PDF for best quality. When trying to save my MIRO board to best quality (not smallest file size) my emojis (graphics) on the page disappear. They appear when I just save to smallest file size PDF but then the rest of my work looks blurry and is not good quality for when I am presenting my MIRO PDF boards in board meetings to my company. Am I doing something wrong here when trying to save my MIRO board to a PDF?Thanks
I’m working with an Apple iPad and stylus. Today, something new started happening. When I choose the ‘select’ tool and use the stylus to drag a rectangle shape across the board to select things, it now immediately/automatically switches to the drawing tool and draws a line instead. In related news, when I’m drawing with the stylus in freehand mode (the felt-tip pen icon), it automatically switches to shapes tool (freehand shapes that get converted to official shapes, has a little plus sign on the icon). I don’t want shapes, I want to draw a freehand box and let it be that. I’m in the right tool for it, but it automatically switches tools on me and then converts the shape. I hit ‘undo’ and keep going. Why is Miro suddenly trying to anticipate what tool I need? I’m picking the right tool the first time, it’s changing the tool as I navigate the board. Please help me understand how to turn this ‘feature’ off.
Hello! I’ve been using Miro for years and love it. However 2 weeks ago I’ve started to encounter an issue with my file name getting messed up when exporting my board as a PDF.In the past, the exported file name would be identical to the board name. It was easy. However now, the file name gets morphed with extra characters. It appears that any space in the board name now becomes “%20” in the file name. This is a real nuisance because I need to now rename every board I export (which I need to do almost daily). For example:If I name a board: AB - September 14, 2023The exported pdf file name now becomes: AB%20-%20September%2014%2C%202023 Please advise! What can I do to fix this?
When Miro releases updates, I get these annoying “what’s new” popups all over the screen. I don’t want to see them - they get in the way of me actually using the board to get work done.How do I permanently disable these popups? I don’t see any options in preferences, anywere.
Hello, fellow Mirovocates! I am new to Miro, and interested in jumping in as soon as I can!For those of you who used to create “push” presentations in Powerpoint-- What do you like better about using Miro? How do you think differently about presentations now with Miro vs with PowerPoint? How does Miro work when teaching/presenting to an audience of more than 100? What can you do better with Miro, and what do you try to avoid? If you had one or two things to advise a strong PowerPoint user about moving to Miro, what would they be? Do you have a Miro board that you could share, that you would call your “greatest work in Miro” or your Masterpiece? I learn by example, and would like to glean the best tips to get started.Thanks for sharing your wisdom!Don
Hi ! New here :)I feel an option to add icons of various colors & shapes (not just emojis) , as well as a possibility to add custom tags or labels (similar to what you have with the sticky notes currently) would be a great addition to help organizing a mind map. (see example below)Adding a filter option to only show parts with specifics icons or labels would be great. The ability to quickly export the content of a mind map to another Miro document or in another format would also help. My team and I love using Miro because of the collaborative feature but the lack of those options for mind maps kind of forces us to use something else to take notes and organize our notes & ideas…
Hi there, I started with Miro boards which I use for online teaching about two years ago, when the only option for a single user was to get a two-person membership for USD 20 a month. I¨ve since then tried to find somebody willing to share the subcription with me with no success, only to discover today that for I don’t for how long now, there must have been a shift in the pricing and the Starter pack costs only USD10 monthly! Naturally, I’m quite upset given how much extra it’d cost me over the time, however that’s not the main point… I would like to change the plan now, but I’m scarred that I might lose all of my boards, which would be a small disaster in my world...😄Can somebody please help me??Thank you!

When I create a connecting line between two shapes and try and move the dog leg line, on saving it snaps back to the default location. How can I stop this happening so when the document saves the lines actually resemble what I was trying to draw…. it’s absolutely infuriating!
Hey! I would love to see tags added to the mind map nodes. At our Lab, we use mind map to structure our user tests process, from the research questions, the test objectives, to the methods and tools, but also to gather and analyze data. And we use tags to indicate many different things: methods or tools we’ll use to look into a specific questions, link participants number to a finding, indicate the level of importance of a finding, etc. And the filtering of those tags is also helpful, for. ex is we want to see what research question will be covered by which method, or to see what feedback a precise participant or group of participants have shared. Right now, we are using MindManager but it won’t be supported by our studio anymore. And anyway, we’d prefer to use a collaborative tool. The only thing stopping us to move to Miro (for mind map) is this absence of tagging/filtering system.
We run workshops and trainings, usually with about 100 frames/exercises. For every class/workshop, these are copied from a template and there’s usually some manual tweaking to be done by the trainer. I set out to write a simple tool that would unlock & unhide all frames, let the trainer make some tweaks, and then run the tool again to lock (in place) and hide (to prevent peaking ahead) all frames.I was surprised that frames are readonly. Is there any workaround to this issue of having to click at least 200 times (lock, hide) to get ready to run a workshop?
Hello all,I hope you are well?I currently have the problem that the field "original estimate" from the Jira ticket is not displayed via the Jira Card on the Miro board. When configuring the add-on, I can only select "story point estimate" for estimates.Can someone please help me at this point?Great greetingsJoey
