Two-way live data connection

I was wondering if it is possible to have a two-way live data connection between MIRO and Google Sheets, Excel, Tableau or PowerBI.

Usage #1 is to have data on sticky notes that automatically refresh based on a live data feed with Google Sheets, Excel, Tableau or PowerBI

Usage #2 is to have the interaction with the sticky note feed data back to Google Sheets, Excel, Tableau or PowerBI. Interaction with the sticky note could be placing them in boxed categories or applying specific tags in MIRO which we then would want to obtain in Google Sheets, Excel, Tableau or PowerBI.

Usage #3 is to have the sticky note placement automatically in the right category grid based on the latest data and to drag sticky’s manually in a different category based on the team interaction and have his category change updated in Google Sheets, Excel, Tableau or PowerBI.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

THIS is the feature I came to Miro looking for. This would be a GAME CHANGER. I don’t know any app that offers this feature and it is sorely needed. :)

I agree with the everyone asking for this feature. One way direction (from Miro to Excel) is more or less available via csv export. I automated it using VBA and it works fine. You are free to select cards for export and in one click they are in your excel. This covers the use case of capturing all data from the workshops into excel for subsequent planning, analysis, categorification etc. 

However a mandatory manual step of exporting cards to csv stops this feature from being used as a part automated processes, including backups. For this to happen we would need to use Miro REST APIs.    

Going in other direction also requires using Miro REST APIs. And it cannot be achieved in any other way. - copy/paste from excel creates just sticky notes.

I wonder if anyone started working on that and how far they progressed.  

 

🙌 THANKS ALEX! Totally agree.

 

Any updates? Is Miro following this thread?
