Password protected public boards


Userlevel 7
Badge +18

Hello,

for me as a user of the consultant plan it is important that every user I invite to my board

this user

  • gets fast
  • instant
  • simple
  • userfriedly
  • and safe

access to my board as user friendly as possible.

So if I invite someone to my board the access should be

  • Sended as Mail
  • Link inside
  • Password protected

No registration at miro - same like I do if I invite someone to zoom meetings.

Please can you make this possible? It would help a lot.

Hi @finnern 
thanks for your support.
This topic has definitely helped to prioritize this functionality. 
Having you guys suggesting new features or highlighting problems is great and gives us more clarity when planning our work and choosing items from our very long to-do lists.
Cheers, Timm

Update: As @Robert Johnson posted already 3 days ago. (The one who can read has a big advantage 😉. It is available. 

Check this help article: https://help.miro.com/hc/en-us/articles/360014617239-Password-Protection-for-Public-Boards

This idea should now be moved to “i:tada:  Delivered - you can enjoy a new feature in Miro! ”. 

Thanks, @mlanders aka Michael for suggesting it and everyone for supporting it @Timm Shrago for chaperoning it through. :-)

Tim, can you let us know how much this thread plaid a role in this feature being developed? Did you reach out to Michael and other members in the thread to make sure the result is as they envision it? 

Tim how many of the new features are community suggested? It would be great to track that percentage. 

Let us know, Mark. 

P.S. How about adding additional status:

  • “In development” for ideas that Miro is working on. 
  • “In consideration” aka has been added to the feature list, but not sure yet when it will be worked on. 
  • “Not yet!” as a nicer word for “Rejected”. Ideally with a comment why it isn’t a priority yet. 

P.P.S. Who else is interested in getting a hierarchical list when downloading your mindmap as a CSV file? Please support this thread next: https://community.miro.com/wish-list-32/export-mind-map-as-hiearchy-in-csv-1343

Hi guys, 

apologies for my silence.
We’re very close to releasing passwords on boards for everyone on eligible plan.

Thanks for your patience and support. 

@Timm Shrago do you have an update?

Our organisation is eagerly awaiting this new feature as it will solve a lot of problems for us.

@Timm Shrago - is there any update for when it will be coming to business plan accounts?

Also, if you’re looking for extra teams to help test it, we would be very interested in joining and providing feedback.

Thanks,

@Timm Shrago 

Same here. Would love to help out with testing and also curious about the timeline (implementation)

Hi, in my Education account, this feature isn’t available yet. The post mentions that it includes Education too. Any idea if this will be available ? thank you

This. Changes. Everything.

Hey guys, 

as you’ve already noticed, we’ve started testing passwords-protection on public boards with a limited number of teams. We hope to make it available to all users on paid plans soon.

And this is what it looks like for participants

 

Only board owners can set passwords.

Hi @mlanders @Patrick Mooney @Kiron Bondale 
Thank you for proposing and elaborating on the idea of seamless and secure access to boards.
We’re currently working on providing greater security for public boards so you will see it in the product in the near future.

Any Updates to this? :confused:  @Timm Shrago

Agree with all of the comments regarding Password protection on public share link - this is a must have and I really hope this comes out soon. I want to get my team excited about using Miro and at the moment this is a complete blocker to that. 

Password protecting a public board is a ‘must have’ feature for our company. Running workshops works great with Miro and our colleagues absolutely love collaborating with your tool. However, not having the Password protect feature is a major issue and a big enough concern for us to not scale up or consider phasing out Miro and switching to MURAL.

Please add this feature.I agree with @Roger Porthouse that this will come back to haunt you. This feature request is A: in your top 10 of requested features with 42 votes and top 3 most viewed ideation topic with 3k views (customers) and B: security related. We would like to stay customer and scale up, so help us out. 

For what it’s worth, I want to add my voice to this requirement.

Passwords on public links is essential for my clients.  I’m on the consultant plan but getting pushback from clients about security fears.  We need password protection on public links.

 

As for the blue-bar on guest users, this is fine as a pop-up but you need to be able to close it without clicking on the Login or Sign up options.  Add a third: ‘Continue as Guest’ or something like that and then make that banner GO AWAY before our clients complain too much an go away.

 

Miro is a great and powerful tool but if you miss the voice of the customer on this, it will come back to haunt you.  I’m telling you this because I want to stay.  Help me do that.

@Nate Gerber :

In one case I have recommended miro to teachers of a facebook-community with over 10.000 members.

One thing they discussed is the blue bar and the missing password protection and the register need at the beginning.

Miro hasn’t made it into the nearer competition because of this stop-for-teachers-with-pupil-elements here in Germany.

Miro itself kicked them out because of this no-go-elements.

I felt so deeply disappointed because I had no chance that anyone of this teacher community listened to me …

Please change this miro … I just reccomended miro to some important - with a huge community and maybe an educational license or more with many many users ... and hope that it will make it into the focus …

I just have to add my voice to this thread. These concerns are make or break for my consulting teams and our clients. There is simply no way I can safely socialize Miro into the various organizations and departments where it can add value, if I can’t protect the initial client experience for outside guest users. They are the core of the work.

  • Please enable password protection 
  • Please remove the blue bar
  • Please set grid default to off for guest users
  • Please set frames to hide for guest users
  • Please enable hiding of UI chrome. 

Each of these items is creating a mickey mouse experience for essential clients and impacting business.

Best.

In a nutshell:

For some, this might seem to be just a small feature, but for me as a workshop facilitator this is crucial (for all the small and big reasons mentioned above). I would love to see this feature implemented soon ❤.

Maybe I got all this wrong and could have solved this in a better way. So any suggestions are totaly welcome 😉.

I will also Post the part about the Consultant plan in the other corresponding threads.

----

I hate to say this but I just checked Mural and they already have this feature implemented (Possibility to share a public link to the board + set a custom password to access it) so I’ll have to consider switching to their service for my next workshops, which would be totaly sad 😞 since I’m a huge fan of miro (since the realtimeboard days).

Thanks for listening.

Hi @Ferdinand Werthwein,

I am totally with you - as I read your lines I sat there with a little smile at my face, because I thought: Yes, absolutely - he got it!

@Timm Shrago :

Could you or one of your team at miro check this Mural - password protection thing, how this works.

Haven’t checked it.

One thing that I found as a “no go” solution is the blue Login / Sign up field above:

 

I know that you need the Mailadress to have it - but:

The user is totally confused - no matter which button he is clicking everything ends up, that he gives a Mailadress - The client shouldn’t have nothing to do with this. It is not his job to care for this:

He wants to get in my workshop / coaching or whatever.

It should be as simple as possible. The one who should do all the work that is needed (all behind) is me - not my client.

Please, please, please would you change this!

Everyone of my clients told me on the phone the same question:

“I see a blue section:
What shall I do now - but when I click with my mouse on the board, the hint doesn’t disappear. 

Are you sure - that I should not click on the button … Oh I have clicked the button … what’s next ...”

And one thing you should have in mind:
If you access the link via mobile the blue section takes lot of your screen and your attention.


This had taken time from my workshop.

So please change this.

Michael
