Hide Avatar/Name label that appears when someone is editing/moving an object

In workshops and meetings with a large number of active participants the flurry of activity on screen can be distracting. Hiding collaborator’s cursors mitigates this but even with cursors hidden there is still a gray box that appears any time someone is editing an object.



Though one can switch collaborator cursors on and off, the ability to turn off the gray avatar/name label that appears when someone is editing and object doesn’t exist.

Example of the gray box with Avatar and Name that appears when a user edits and object

At my company we use Miro to facilitate highly interactive workshops with upwards of 15 users working in tandem at a time. With this number of people all active at once, having these avatar/name boxes appearing all at once can be as distracting as having all of the cursors on screen.


Possible Solution

It would be great to have a way to hide these labels in the same way that we can hide collaborator cursors.
