A “facilitator” role is an essential feature for every setup where
- the owner of a board is not also the facilitator of a workshop where a board is being used
- more than one person is (co-)facilitating a workshop that uses a board
- more than one designer is involved in creating / preparing a board for a workshop
Especially the “hide/unhide” frame option - if used - currently prevents any board from being used by anyone else than the owner.
As long as there can be only one “owner” with the editing rights associated to this role, every setup that includes “team work” or “division of labor” on the creator side of a board would need this additional role of a “facilitator”, mainly to
- allow facilitators to unhide frames the creator (owner) of the board did hide
- allow facilitators to unlock objects that cannot be (accidentally) unlocked by (guest) editor
There are many additional rights a facilitator might enjoy over (guest) editors, including access to certain objects like frames, to prevent newbie-users to mess up a board by accidentally adding content to the board that they should not / did not intend to add. For some ideas on this, please look https://community.miro.com/wish-list-32/usage-rights-for-facilitators-vs-participants-440
I understand that changing the roles might be a major intervention. But as more and more people (and teams) use Miro, this extension to the rights management would remove some painful restrictions to internal workflows of any team (not single users) that works with Miro boards on their client’s projects.
