Make all internal Miro links relational by default

User Case: 
I hold the same workshop to multiple clients. I develop this board in one place, this is sort of a master version of the workshop. For each client I then hold the workshop for, I copy paste the relevant frames and items I wish to include into a new board which I have added to that account and project. 

The problem is only that when I do, all links are still pointing to the master version board, and not the frames in the new board. As I may want to have 10 or maybe even 100 links in one board, it makes it impossible to use links because of this, at least in this way. 

A nice feature would be to make the links stay relational within each board. As far as I understand it, the links are today built up by /boardID/widgetID. So I guess what I would like is that if I paste a set of 20 frames into a new board, containing 100 links, the link with /boardID/ would be updated, replacing the origin board ID with the destination board ID. 

Sometimes I might want those links to stay static (stay linked to the original board), but as I see this as a less commong need, I would add a $ to those links, to say that the board or widget link should stay intact: 

Relational link (will change to the new board): https://miro.com/app/board/boardID/widgetID/
Static link (will stay pointed to original board): https://miro.com/app/board/$boardID/widgetID/ 

My current workaround to this today is to create a link grid as a template, or duplicate a whole board, and then remove unwanted frames, but both of these are rather hassly.

Hey @Johan! Can duplicating a board be a workaround? You can copy your “master” board for every new client and then delete unnecessary information. Does it work for you?

Just stumbled onto the save board as temple feature.

It will solve the basic problem @Johan has

I tried that, it doesn’t work for me Any “Link to” links are still pointing to the old board.

It is not. I tried, but the link targets are unique per board, so you can find, but have no idea what to replace with.

I have a basic search & replace script that uses the API to update all unlocked text elements on a board.
