Board sharing permission settings for secure collaboration
Collaborate with additional confidence on sensitive projects. Now board owners & co-owners on Team, Business, Consultant, Education, and Enterprise Plan can withdraw editors’ permissions to change board access settings and invite other collaborators. This way they can proactively manage (and limit, if needed) who the board is shared with.
We’ve made some enhancements and improvements to the way Company admins can automate requests from their end users for license upgrades. We have now extended this functionality to allow admins to configure for users to join an organization, or to join a team. To learn more about this feature, please visit the help center.

Here’s a few new templates we’re loving this week:

Keep up the pace by creating and connecting shapes with less clicks
A central diagramming library including connector, basic and flowchart shapes
Our emojis app now also includes Stickers, giving you another way to react and share how you feel.
You can use Stickers to react to a teammate’s work on the board, communicate your thoughts during a meeting, or to create more exciting board designs.
Create engagement and use Stickers to give a teammate high-five for a job well done, even if you’re on a different continent.
We can’t wait to see all the different ways you use Stickers. Head to our community page to share your feedback or even submit your own stickers.

Weekly Update - New templates added to Miroverse, and more
New templates added to Miroverse
We spend much of our waking lives with coworkers, so connecting deeply at work plays an important role in our well-being. This month Miroverse brings you over 30 new templates and introduces 21 new creators, including three workshops from Dropbox that’ll help you improve team health and team effectiveness.
❤️Get to know your team: Use this 45 minute workshop to build trust and understand what makes your teammates tick.
🧘♀️Evaluate your team’s well-being: Use this 50 minute workshop to assess your team’s holistic health —and make course corrections before you’re overstressed or burned out.
🎉Run a retrospective: Use this 45 minute exercise to celebrate wins, develop empathy for team members, and quickly learn from mistakes.
Miro customers use projects to organise their boards, making it easier to find and share them. With the recent update we rolled out to all Miro users, we changed the flow to help prevent accidental project creation.
When a user clicks on the +Add button on the dashboard, they see a pop-up, and need to explicitly confirm they want to create it by clicking on the Create project button. After that, they see confirmation that the project was created, and can pick a name for it, share it with the right collaborators, or delete it, if necessary.

Weekly Update - Quick sign in to interactive displays, Splunk integration, and more updates to the Miro Admin console

Updates to Miro Admin console - Permissions on who can create boards, templates or projects
Admins now have an additional section in the admin panel under Sharing, that will allow them to choose who can set up boards, projects and templates.

To allow end users to leverage this feature for their sync and async collaboration, company admins need to enable it for their org and specific teams. Learn more in our Help Center.

Company admins will now be able to assign or change licenses for their users at the team level, instead of just at the company level. They will be able to assign a full license to a user, or change their user’s license to free restricted (flexible licensing plans only). This will make it easier and less cumbersome for admins to make changes.
AUGUST 9, 2021

Updates for the Enterprise Plan customers

Now when you click on the text you want to edit, the caret will be placed exactly where you click, not at the end of the text as before
AUGUST 2, 2021
Miro plugin for Figma update, and more
Miro plugin for Figma – now owned by Miro
Using both Miro and Figma? Try the Miro plugin for Figma (formerly known as Figmiro) to seamlessly import from Figma to Miro. Now that the plugin is owned by the Miro team, we think you'll love it. The Miro plugin for Figma lets you easily add Figma frames to Miro, giving Miro users that don't have access to Figma (or don't have any experience with it) the chance to provide feedback right in Miro and stay up to date with the latest design changes in Figma. The Miro plugin for Figma now supports SSO, which gives you more streamlined and secure authentication.
The new co-owner role is a board (and project) role that allows board owners to share responsibilities of preparing and facilitating live and asynchronous collaboration. Co-owners can perform almost all the actions available for board owner, from managing board settings to hiding and revealing content and setting passwords on public boards.
Now this role is available to all Miro users on the Consultant Plan, and is coming soon to the Enterprise Plan.
Moreover, board owners and co-owners on the Consultant Plan can now control the usage of board collaboration tools by setting who can start timer, voting, video chat, screen sharing and use attention management on a board. Visit the Help Center to learn more.

Weekly update – Zoom integration, mandatory Password protection, and more
Meet the new Miro app for Zoom
Miro is now seamlessly integrated into the Zoom experience. That means less context switching and more collaborating. With the Miro app for Zoom, you get a canvas for co-creation on every meeting, making them more hands-on and productive. With the new app you can:

See the engagement with access to your favorite facilitation tools and the flexibility to work on boards in the main viewing area without losing sight of everyone in the meeting.
We’ve partnered with Dialpad to offer Miro directly within Dialpad Meetings. It is available by default for all free users and available for download from the Dialpad App Marketplace for all Dialpad Meetings users on a paid plan.
Thisweek we are announcing a few exciting updates for our Enterprise Plan customers that are primarily focused on elevating the admin experience:
SaaS Management integrations Miro has partnered with Bettercloud, Productiv and Zylo to bring SaaS management integrations to Miro users. These integrations will allow admins to leverage their SaaS management platform to view information on Miro license consumption and activity. Read more here.
Available to Miro Enterprise customers and requires a subscription to Bettercloud, Productiv or Zylo to set up integration.
Introducing mandatory password protection for publicly shared boards Miro administrators on the Enterprise Plan now have the ability to enforce mandatory passwords on all boards that are shared publicly. Learn more here.
Bulk select for user management Admins on the Enterprise Plan can now easily select up to 50 users at a time, allowing for easier management of users when deleting, deactivating or creating new teams.
Audit Logs Additional audit log events are now available. Under user management, admins can now determine if a user license has been converted to a free restricted license. Learn more about our audit logs in the Help Center.
Bug fixes & other updates
We changed the behavior for typing & editing texts in sticky notes, text field, shapes, and cards
Before: if users wanted to change the text in one of the board objects mentioned above, they needed to select the object and double click to enter the editing mode
Now: no need to do that. Once you select a sticky note, text field, a shape or a card you can immediately start typing, and the new text will replace the existing text
Typing is now way quicker, but there's a change of pattern for hotkey users: to use hotkeys like S for adding new sticky notes or C for leaving a comment, you will need to make sure that none of the objects on the board are selected (if they are you'll type the letter instead of firing off a command with your hotkey)
JULY 19, 2021
Weekly update – Miro is now more accessible for screen reader users, and more
Making Miro more accessible for screen reader users
We are working on making Miro more accessible, and released the first significant bundle of product improvements for screen reader users.
Screen reader users don’t need to take any additional steps to activate the accessibility functionality – when you open a Miro board with your screen reader, you will hear a prompt to activate screen reader mode.
Now screen reader users can be invited to Miro boards – sign up & sign in are screen-reader friendly, it is possible to navigate through the Miro dashboard to open the required board, and the main types of board content such as frames, sticky notes, and shapes can now be accessed with the help of the screen reader.
Please, note, that the flow described above works the best for:
Users invited to the existing team on the Enterprise Plan
Users on Team, Business, Consultant, Education or Enterprise Plan that are invited directly to the board as anonymous Guest Editors
All of the flows described above are currently only available on the desktop.
The current solution is read-only making it possible for users to access existing board content with the help of the screen reader, and does not allow creating or editing content on Miro boards yet.
We will continue working on making Miro more accessible, and are planning to support other possible setups in the future.
Weekly update – board history available for Team, Business, Consultant, Enterprise, and Education Plan users, and more
Board history is now available on Team, Business, Consultant, Enterprise, and Education Plans
Imagine working on a massive Miro board with dozens of collaborators: sometimes your content can be accidentally moved around or deleted by others.
Board history makes it possible to automatically save and recover versions of Miro boards enabling you to collaborate with additional confidence.
Board versions are automatically saved every hour as well as at the end of each collaborative session
If you want to work with an earlier version of your board, it will be restored as a copy of the original board and will open in the new browser tab – this way you will not disrupt the work of your team members
Restoration of previous board versions is available to board owners and team members with editor rights
You can access board history by clicking the icon in the bottom left collaboration toolbar if you are
As of today, we've expanded the minimum team size of Business Plan to help smaller teams meet their security needs.
Now you can reap the benefits of SSO, for added convenience and security. Get started with Business plan today, to be Enterprise ready in the future.
Now available for purchase by credit card or invoicing.
Bug fixes & other updates
Starting July 1, 2021 Google image search will be temporarily disabled in Miro. It will not affect any of the previously added images.
There are a few alternatives that can replace Google image search in your workflow for the time being:
Use Google image search in the browser, copy link to the image and paste in to your Miro board, or download the image to save it for later and re-upload it to the board when needed – whatever is more convenient for you
Use Miro integration with Unsplash – the functionality of this integration is very close to that of Google image search. The only difference is that you search and add images from the Unsplash website that offers free images and photos that you can download and use for any project
JUNE 28, 2021
Weekly update – the Miroverse & templates Community, and more
Azure DevOps integration updates
All Miro users on the Enterprise Plan now have access to the new & improved Azure DevOps cards picker
Users can now search for Azure DevOps work items more efficiently – we now support search across all fields, not just the title as before. It’s now also possible to use robust keyword search powered by Microsoft
We added the possibility to filter by project, assignee, type, area, and state, which unlocks advanced filtering of Azure work items in the Miro in-app picker for users
Weekly update – introducing member trials on the Team Plan, and more
Introducing Member Trials
Collaborating in Miro should be easy and stress-free for new teammates and admins. That's why we're introducing Member Trials for all Team Plan members.
Seven days. Full access. Completely free. Your new teammates get instant collaboration while admins decide who gets added to the paid membership.
Here are some need-to-knows:
Trials begin when new members open a board and are only valid once for new users
Team members or admins can invite new members based on their preference in settings
When a trial expires, members automatically become full members unless downgraded before the end of the seven days
Admins will get weekly email updates to see remaining trial times and how members are using their trial

Weekly update – new Miroverse templates, and more
New templates added to Miroverse
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since we released Miroverse into the world. Since then, we’ve seen more than 400 creators share their 600+ templates, including frameworks, activities — even art! Go from idea to action with some of this month's new templates:
Participate in the retrospective templates challenge

MAY 24, 2021
Weekly update – instantly sign in to Miro with Slack links
Sign in with Slack Links
Slack recently released a new update that allows users to connect to select third-party services, including Miro, by using their Slack account. If a user clicks a Miro board that has been shared in Slack, they will be prompted to connect their Slack account to an existing Miro account or to create a new one.
Existing Miro users can log in to Miro using Slack to authenticate and new Miro users can seamlessly create an account using their Slack credentials.
Connecting to Miro with Slack enables users to experience the features of the Miro app, including rich link previews, and configurable notification settings. Note: This feature is being gradually rolled out by Slack and not available to all users yet.
MAY 17, 2021
Weekly update – changes for access-link integrations users
Important update for users of access-link integrations on the Enterprise Plan
Miro integrates with Airtable, Bitrix 24, Coda, Confluence, Hopin, Jira, Livestorm, Microsoft Teams, Monday, Remo, RemoteHQ, Toasty, Trello, Whereby, and Butter using access links.
It means Miro users with accounts in these services can embed Miro boards into all of these products for viewing and commenting.
Now, if sharing boards via a public link is turned off on company or team level in the Miro account on the Enterprise Plan, boards embedded via access links will also be shared privately by default.
It means all Miro users in the account will need to sign in or sign up to Miro to view the embedded board (for example, on a Confluence page).
Also, end-users will see a notification letting them know boards can only be embedded privately in compliance with the settings you enforce for your organization.
MAY 10, 2021
Weekly update – a new and improved templates library, and more
A new and improved home for all the Miro Templates
The templates library gets a fresh new look and feel, expanded categories, richer images, and a big ol' search bar at the top. We refreshed the templates library on the website so you can find the right templates for your team faster than ever.
Discover the latest Miroverse profiles and templates from the Miro community. This month we’ve filled Miroverse with over 40 new templates, introduced 25 new creators, and redesigned the layout for profile pages so creators get a brighter spotlight, including:

MAY 3, 2021
Weekly update – introducing reactions, and more
Introducing our new reactions feature
With the new reactions feature you can show it, rather than say it.
We’ve listened to your feedback and learned that one of the biggest challenges teams face is how to build, and maintain engagement throughout meetings and workshops. That’s why we’re launching the reactions feature that can boost engagement during meetings and workshops by giving everyone a chance to express themselves.
Select from six emojis to express how you feel at any time during meetings and workshops
Raise your hand if you want to speak up and facilitators will get notified
Facilitators will be able to lower hands

Suggest object size is a UX improvement designed to help users resize any object (including sticky notes, shapes, and frames) on their Miro board so that it matches the size of a similar object next to it.
Bug fixes & other updates
We optimized dashboard loading speed for all Miro users
We have been focused on making Miro more accessible since the beginning of 2021. Today we are excited to share the first updates as we release the beta version of the following accessibility features:
Sign-in and sign-up flows now better support keyboard navigation
We unlocked basic dashboard navigation for screen-reader users: you can choose a project for your team and pick a board using your keyboard
The color contrast of the UI elements on the board is WCAG2.1 AA compliant
All of the improvements described above are currently being tested with Miro users and leading UX & accessibility consultants, and our team will continue enhancing the existing functionality as well as adding new features to make our product even more accessible.
You can always share yours to see what fellow visual collaborators do with it.
Bug fixes & other improvements
Better text editing now available to all users
We just rolled out a UX improvement to our text widget. It doesn't have paddings and now you can (finally!) align text right & left. What else to know:
The text widget is now more visually distinct from shapes
All previously created text widgets will not be changed (i.e. they will still have paddings)
All newly created text widgets will not have paddings
Users will be able to duplicate old widgets (duplicates will keep paddings) as well as copy and paste styles from old widgets to new ones and vice versa
MARCH 29, 2021
Weekly update – the new improved timer, and more
New improved timer plugin with music
Managing time and setting the right mood for your meeting can be challenging. With Miro’s improved timer you can do both at the same time, all with one plugin. Take control of your (virtual) meeting space and adapt where necessary to keep everyone on track, while hitting your meeting goals.
The new plugin enables all users who are on Education, Team, Consultant, Business, or Enterprise plan to:
Pause the timer when needed
Add time to the timer with the click of a button
Choose royalty free background tunes to get participants in the right mindset
Weekly update – new features for the Enterprise Plan, and more
Frames are an essential feature that helps structure your content on Miro boards. Here are the two of the most recent enhancements:
Automatic numeration for frame names: if you call your first frame 'Frame name 1', we'll be automatically adding the next number to the name of the next frame you add to the board ('Frame name 2', 'Frame name 3', etc)
Better rendering of frame names when you're zoomed out of the board to increase perceivability of board content
New Team-level sharing permissions (Enterprise Plan only)
As Miro usage scales within your organization, the need for more granular security settings increases. We released new Team-level security features to give you the control and flexibility needed to customize allowlists and sharing policies according to your teams' needs. This is particularly useful for companies working with external collaborators for use cases like workshops, agile ceremonies, and more. Read our Help Center to learn more.
Increased duration of session idle timeout (Enterprise Plan only)
Previously, the session idle timeout interval was set to 30 minutes. According to customer feedback, this duration may be too short and potentially disruptive for end users. We've increased the timeout interval to 90 minutes and are working towards allowing customizable intervals in the future. Read our Help Center to learn more.
Updates to make Activity List in Miro more secure
Activity List in Miro helps track changes made to boards by editors. In our effort to make collaboration in Miro even more secure, we’re updating the permissions to ensure that Activity List is available for board collaborators with the right permissions. Here are the changes we introduced:
Activity List will be visible exclusively for board editors that were explicitly invited to boards via email or have the access to the board because they are part of a project or team in Miro. Board viewers & commenters will NOT see Activity List
If the board is shared via link with the company or via a public link with anonymous Guest Editors, Activity List won’t be visible for them
MARCH 16, 2021
Introducing the improved tables functionality
Merge cells, copy from spreadsheets, and more!
Starting today the updated version of tables (formerly ‘grids’) is available to all Miro users.

It is now possible to copy content from Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheets to Miro tables
You can now copy and paste content between cells without losing formatting
We updated overall user experience for tables making adding and deleting rows & columns and moving the table on the board more intuitive You can learn more about using tables in Miro in the Help Center. Already tried the new features? Let us know what you think in the Miro Community!

Now you can draw even faster with your Apple Pencil on iPad — simply double tap to switch between pen and eraser quickly.
All Free, Team, Business, Consultant, and Education Plan users in Miro now have access to the updated text functionality.

A separate announcement will be published in the changelog when this feature becomes available to the Enterprise Plan customers.
DECEMBER 28, 2020
Weekly update – templates picker refresh, and more
Board content settings updates
Copy board functionality is now available to Free, Team, Business, Consultant, and Education Plan users (coming to the Enterprise Plan early 2021).
The option to allow copying boards from one account to another will be turned off by default for existing Miro users, and will have to be enabled by admins, if needed.
When the option to copy boards is turned on, all collaborators (including viewers, commenters, and guest editors) will be able to copy boards to their respective Miro accounts to use them as templates, or continue working on meeting artifacts
This update will also influence content download permissions. Now unregistered users (board viewers, commenters, and guest editors) will have no option to download assets from boards, as we want to provide advanced collaboration security and control over board assets. Please, let us know what you think about this update in the community.
This is the last Changelog update in 2020. Thank you for using Miro, and helping us make our product better every day. See you in 2021 – can't wait to share the new & exciting features we prepared for you!
Weekly update – integration with Google Calendar, and more
Introducing Miro for Google Calendar
The Miro for Google Calendar Chrome Extension takes the stress out of meeting setup for organizers and gives participants the access they need to make meetings more productive. Use the new extension to add Miro boards to any Google Calendar event in just a few clicks and ensure meeting participants have the appropriate view, comment, or edit access ahead of time, so meetings go off without a hitch.
Automate and manage Miro requests using your request management workflows
Available for Enterprise Plan.
To reduce admin overhead, we’ve released a new Request Management configuration in the Account Security settings. Currently, any time a new user requests access to Miro or to upgrade their license, an email notification is sent to the Company Admin.
Now, Company Admins can configure the way they will be notified of these requests and may choose from three options:
1. Send a standard email notification to admins (existing feature)
2. Redirect the requester to a service desk (new)
3. Automatically convert their request into a ServiceNow ticket (new)
Process internal chargebacks with new SCIM attributes
If you’re currently using SCIM to manage user provisioning and deprovisioning for Miro, we’ve added support for six new attributes to give you access to more detailed information on which parts of the organization or cost centers users belong to.
The new attributes include:
For more information about these new attributes and other features currently supported through SCIM, please see our updated Help Center article.
Coming soon: increase meeting engagement with Guest Editor access to collaborative apps
To give guests more opportunities to participate during meetings and workshops in Miro, we will be releasing an update soon to grant Guest Editors the ability to access collaborative apps that are installed on the board.
Currently guests can see these apps that are installed, but are not able to use them without registering for an account. With the upcoming change, Guest Editors will be able to use collaborative apps as they do the other tools on the board.
Note, collaborative apps are a subset of apps available to users. These are plug-ins that only interact with objects on the board and meant to encourage engagement during synchronous sessions. They do not access any data that lives outside the board or in other systems.
Bug fixes and other updates
Deleted content recovery is now available to all Miro users. Visit Help Center to learn more.

Bug fixes and other updates
We increased grace period for charge attempts on Team, Business, and Consultant Plans from 7 to 14 days, to make sure our customers have enough time to update their billing details, if necessary, while their account stays active for two weeks.
NOVEMBER 30, 2020
Weekly update – cards just got a major facelift, and more
Meet the new Miro card
Card is a versatile board object our customers use in user story mapping and Kanban interactive frameworks as well as for aggregating and storing content, such as user research interviews and insights.
Cards are almost as easy to use as sticky notes, and are much more flexible and powerful at the same time.
The good news this object just received a major facelift, and is now even easier and more intuitive to use.
Working with color coding, tags, assignees, and due dates as well as copying a link to card and deleting cards just got faster thanks to quick actions on the right side of the card (when it's in the expanded view)
It's now easier to work with longer texts because we added scrolling and made it possible to resize a card by dragging its border

We added the ability to search for specific users during collaborative sessions. It is especially helpful when you're working in Miro with 4+ people in real-time, and want to start following them or need to bring them to the specific area of the board.
Bugs & other updates
Search is now available on all template pages on Miro website. It works at the speed of light, and helps users find just the right content across all template titles and descriptions.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2020
Weekly update – password protection for public boards coming to all self-serve plans, desktop app updates, and more
New hide and reveal setting for frames
Available for Team, Business, Consultant, Education, and Enterprise Plan.
Have you ever struggled with participants getting lost or distracted by content on the board? Do you hesitate to share boards ahead of time because it might spoil the surprise?
Board owners can now control the visibility of frames. Hide content in frames so that it stays private until the right moment to share it. Stay in control of when content is revealed on the board so you can set the stage, design meetings and workshops step-by-step, and maintain a private space on your boards.
Password protection for public boards is now available on more plans
Last week we released optional password protection for public boards to Team, Business, Consultant, and Education Plan users. This feature is also available on the Enterprise Plan.
With this feature, we added a new layer of security to your public boards. Share your Miro boards via a public link for viewing, commenting, or editing, protect them with a password, and enjoy seamless and secure collaboration.
We added 35 new templates to Miroverse and introduced a few new categories to help you navigate all of the great content:

Stimulate curiosity beyond the classroom with templates from the Education category
Team Plan billing updates
We changed the way we charge for the new seats added during the subscription billing period on the Team Plan. This change will make our billing infrastructure more stable and scalable, and billing experience – easier and clearer for our customers.
We used to take payment for new team members at the end of the month (e.g. if you added new team members on the 14th of the month, we would charge you for additional team members on the last day of the same month).
Now we are changing that to be the same as date as the day when you subscribed to Miro. For example, if you subscribed on September 10, 2020, your team members' payment date wil be the 10th of the month. If you invite a new team member on September 14, 2020, will charge you for this user for the first time on October 10, 2020.
If you have feedback, questions or suggestions about any of these features, please, visit Miro Community to let us know what you think.

AUGUST 24, 2020
Weekly update – performance improvements, marketplace search, and more
Better performance across the board
Miro team continues investing in our app performance as we believe it is one of the key factors influencing user experience.
We anticipate that these improvements will help create a delightful experience for all Miro users, especially those, who regularly create, duplicate, or delete boards, switch between projects, and search for specific content.
Here are some recent highlights:
Improved dashboard loading time for users with multiple accounts and boards
One minor yet noticeable improvement that comes with faster dashboard loading time is that it prevents misclicks when you go back from board to dashboard to open a different board.
Optimized switching between projects.
Previously, some users reported experiencing a 2-second lag when switching between different projects on the dashboard and were unsure if the project they selected started loading. This lag has been reduced – now users immediately see the name of the project they want to switch to.
Faster board creation, duplication, and deletion for bigger accounts
Now you can create boards faster – we optimized new board creation from the dashboard as well as introduced miro.new shortcut helping save time every time you feel the need to start a new Miro board.
Duplicating and deleting boards from the dashboard also got noticeably faster.
We also enhanced the responsiveness of the board details window and updated its user interface.
Now search queries are typically processed in less than one second. Previously, queries could take up to three seconds to process.
Use search in 'More apps' to discover new ways to use Miro
Discover apps, plugins, and integrations developed by Miro and third-party developers faster with in-product search. Simply click on the three dots at the bottom of the toolbar and type the name of the app you are looking for:
AUGUST 17, 2020

See voting results right on the board
Introducing a much-requested addition to voting functionality – now you can see voting results right on the board, making it easier to sum up and review brainstorming results with your team.
Create as many teams as you need right from the dashboard
Now all Free, Team, Business, Consultant, and Education Plan users (including those who were invited to join an existing team) can create new paid self-serve teams right from the dashboard, regardless of the number of teams they already have.
Please, note: you won’t be able to create a new team if it is prohibited by an Enterprise account in your domain (see Domain Control for details).
There are several ways to share Miro boards as a Miro Enterprise user. With this new sharing setting, you can promote knowledge sharing and transparency by sharing boards with Miro users across multiple team workspaces. Set company-wide view/comment access in the sharing window located within a board. Use this feature to share boards that contain company OKRs, org charts, onboarding resources, and more.Visit our Help Center to learn more.

Switch from credit card to online invoicing on Team and Business Plans
Great news for our Team and Business Plan users! If you are purchasing a yearly subscription for the Team Plan starting from 10 seats or the Business Plan, you now can change the payment option from credit card to the online invoice.
Miro's got you covered while preparing for the new academic year. With our online collaborative whiteboard students and faculty get work done remotely and work with classmates and colleagues from anywhere outside of the school or classroom.
With the updated navigation and structure of the landing page, it's now easier to find the right Miro solution for the student, educator, or the entire campus.
Miro for education:
Free for verified students up to 10 users for 2 years.
Free for educators from the accredited educational institutions up to 100 users forever.
Previously, when users added multiple templates to the board, the content could occasionally overlap, and templates were added on top of each other. We fixed this UX issue – now you can add as many templates as you need while preparing your board for the next collaborative session with your team.
Miro cursors just received a major facelift. Here's a quick recap of everything we updated:
We changed cursor shape and added more colors that match our brand palette
Name tags are now more high-contrast, which makes them easier to read
Cursors don't have shadows anymore and are slightly transparent, which helps maintain high board performance during massive collaborative sessions
Weekly update – create better wireframes, improved guidelines for publishing apps in Miro Marketplace, and more
Create wireframes in Miro quicker than before
Miro’s updated Wireframing functionality enables you to create simple low-fidelity prototypes of website pages and product screens in a matter of minutes – even if you don't have much design experience.
We refreshed the component library – added new device types, interactive UI components, and a searchable built-in icon library.
Now it's easier to understand what you can vote for in Miro – we show 'plus' icons when the voting session starts. All that is left to do – pick the objects on the board you want to vote for.
A more streamlined process for adding apps to Miro Marketplace
Our team has updated the Getting published in Miro Marketplace section of our website to make sure developers clearly understand how to create an app that will be the best fit for Miro Marketplace, get the design approved, and comply with security guidelines. Check it out and visit Developer Forum to give us feedback, ask questions, and network with fellow developers.
Getting started with sticky notes just got easier
We added a hint 'Double click to type' for first-time Miro users – it is shown when you hover over your first three sticky notes created in Miro.
JULY 6, 2020
Weekly update – adding columns and rows to Grids just got easier, updated voting, and more
Add new columns and rows to Grids quicker than before
New UX improvement to Miro Grids – now you can add new columns and rows to the Grid anywhere you want (previously it was only possible to add new rows at the bottom and new columns – on the right side).
Now you can set up voting ahead of time to save time during online meetings and workshops while making them more engaging and interactive.
Prepare your voting session as you normally would (select its duration, decide how many votes per person you want to allocate, pick the voting area and types of objects your collaborators can vote for). After that, click on 'Save to vote later' and come back to your voting session when its time comes.
Visit Miro Community to let us know what you think about this feature.
Never miss voting or video chat session on your board again
Collaborators in Miro now see prominent push notifications when voting or video chat session is started by someone on the board. This way they will never miss an important collaborative activity.
JUNE 29, 2020
Weekly update – integration with Whereby, highlighting text in Grids, and more
Highlight text in Grids
We added a new feature to Grids: now it's possible to highlight text in cells to emphasize what's important and make content easy to read and interact with.
You can either highlight only the selected text in an individual cell or select whole rows and columns and apply highlighting to all of the content in them.
Now you will get notified when font size in sticky notes changes from the one you selected to 'Auto' – this happens when we need to make the font size smaller to ensure you can continue typing without interruption.
Use Miro together with Whereby
We partnered with Whereby to enable everyone who uses this product to start a whiteboard session in Miro from any video meeting without the need to register or sign in to Miro.
We recently added a new Planning Poker app to help facilitate remote agile planning and estimation, created by Gorazdo.studio.
Planning poker, also called Scrum poker, is a consensus-based, gamified technique for estimating effort or relative size of development goals in software development. In planning poker, members of the group make estimates by playing numbered cards face-down, instead of speaking them aloud.
The planning poker app includes:
Drag-n-drop functionality for placing cards and an unveiling button.
14 cards including extra: Infinity, Coffee-break, and Question cards.
Enjoyable unbiased estimation for your planning sessions.

Click on the grey icon in the upper right corner and drag it horizontally
Please, note, that this feature currently doesn't work in Grid cells.
Bug fixes & other updates
Even better app performance
Our team is constantly working on enhancing Miro performance. In the light of recent improvements, we updated our Technical Guidelines in Help Center with information about the largest seamless collaborative session and recommended number of simultaneous collaborators on one board.
The largest session we hosted so far had 377 users. A more common scenario that we see almost every week is around 200 editors working simultaneously on the same board.
We test our app regularly with a higher number of users, but it is too early for us to say that everyone’s’ experience will be seamless if you go over 200 collaborators. The above limit doesn't apply to viewers, so you can invite more of them to observe.
Demo boards for paid plan users
Usersof Team, Business, and Consultant Plans now have access to demo boards showcasing features that become available as a result of an upgrade.
Updated Terms of Service
We updated our Terms of Service for self-serve users. Learn more here.
MAY 25, 2020
Weekly update – duplicate sticky notes at the speed of light, more powerful dashboard search results, and more
Duplicating sticky notes just got faster. Much faster.
A real game changer for all sticky note lovers out there – now you can create a new one while you're still typing using CMD/CTRL+D or TAB
Share, rename, move boards and more – all of this right from the search results on the dashboard
Starting today all Miro users are able to perform key actions with their boards right in the search results on the dashboard.
The menu with all options will open up when you click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the board preview.
Need to share a link to your board quickly without opening it? Want to rename your board or duplicate it in a matter of seconds? All of this will be available right on your fingertips right in search results.
Use this feature together with search filters to streamline board organization – for example, you can now filter boards by owner and move them to an account or project quicker than before.
Better content copying and pasting between frames
We enhanced user experience with copying and pasting content between frames:
when you copy content from one frame, it will be pasted to the same spot in the other frame
if you select multiple frames, content will be pasted to all of the selected frames
Font size in sticky notes now auto-adjusts to the volume of text, which allows users to continue typing without interruption until they hit maximum character limit
You can change font and highlighting color in Mind Map
Bug with Voting fixed – some users reported being unable to select voting area
MAY 18, 2020
Weekly update — better facilitation for remote workshops and meetings, visual tables, and more
Organize better workshops and meetings with Attention Management
Attention Management is a powerful facilitation feature for remote meetings and workshops. It allows meeting organizers and workshop facilitators to guide participants and ensure everyone is following and engaged.
This feature is especially important for facilitating massive workshops with dozens of participants because it helps direct their attention to the area of the board where collaboration is happening at a particular moment.
Bring to me
Easily bring all collaborators to the area of the board you want everyone to focus on with ‘Bring to me’ functionality. Available on Team, Business, Consultant, Enterprise, and Education Plans.
Once you bring all of the participants to the particular area of the board, we enable auto-following, which means that all of the collaborators will be seeing exactly the same content as you.
If you notice that someone accidentally got lost on the board, it’s possible to direct collaborators back to the focus area one by one. Available on all plans. We proactively notify all collaborators when ‘Bring to me’ functionality is used which helps ensure they understand who is facilitating the workshop and what is happening at the particular moment.
If you are working with multiple facilitators or presenters, it’s possible to follow them by selecting their avatar and using ‘Follow’ functionality. This way you can easily switch between different areas of the board and follow what other participants do. Available on all plans.
Content Admin feature introduced for the Enterprise Plan users
This feature is available by request.
It gives Enterprise Company Admins extended permissions to manage projects, boards (e.g. delete, transfer, or move boards and download board backups), and company templates without needing to request permission from board owners to do so. This gives them the greater ability to better organize and administer the workspace.
What does it mean to Company Admins?
For a company admin, extended permissions provide more granular control to manage the Enterprise account. Additionally, these controls allow them to ensure compliance with security standards (like having the ability to transfer content when an employee leaves and user is deactivated).
Uploading multiple images to the board just got better – instead of being stacked on each other they are added one next to another.
Smaller font sizes are added to sticky notes: now it's possible to type text with 4 and 8 px font size
Smart scaling – now text in shapes will scale proportionally when multiple shapes are selected and scaled
MAY 11, 2020
Weekly update – Confluence Server plugin now uses live embed
Confluence Server plugin update
Confluence plugin is now consistent for the Cloud and Server versions. From now on, Confluence Server users can add Miro boards as full-featured live embeds.
Please, note, that previously embedded boards will remain as up-to-date .svg images. If you want to transform them into full-featured boards, you will need to re-embed the board and update permission options.
This update concludes a series of improvements made to Miro integrations with other productivity apps. Now Confluence plugin, Jira Cloud add-on, Trello power-up, and Microsoft Teams all use live embed and standard Miro board picker.
Setting up Confluence plugin also got better. All the Confluence administrator has to do now is install the plugin to enable it for everyone in the account. There is no need to specify Miro account tokens when configuring the plugin.
Bug fixes & other updates
It's now possible to copy and paste email addresses in bulk from other products to invite users to boards, projects, etc in Miro

APRIL 27, 2020
Weekly update — enhanced video chat, updated frames, and more
Enhanced built-in video chat
We updated our built-in video chat:
Improved its connection stability
Added scroll to the list of participants, making it possible to see everyone who is on the call
Updated the UI to make 'Start' / 'Join', 'Stop' / 'Leave' buttons more discoverable
Started displaying names of participants on video by default
Duplicating frames with content inside is now as easy as pressing Ctrl/Cmd + D – just make sure the frame you want to duplicate is selected.
If you delete a frame, all of its content stays selected by default, making moving it around the canvas quicker.
Arranging content within frames got easier thanks to snaps
More intuitive Projects sorting
Projects are now sorted alphabetically for better discoverability.
Projects are available on paid plans only.
Reminders to join Miro for invited Enterprise Plan users
Invitation reminders are now sent out on the 14th, 21st, and 28th day after the initial invite was sent out for the Enterprise Plan users if it wasn't accepted.
Invitation emails have been updated as well: now they are more detailed, clearly show who invited the user to a team or a board, and who manages the account the user was invited to join.
Enhanced board sharing for the Enterprise Plan users
When a user cannot share a board because they are not allowed to add new members to a team, we point them to their Company Admin or Team Admin to fix this.
Bug fixes & other updates
Bug with Timer fixed – it wasn't displaying correctly for some users for some time on April 22 and 23, 2020

Weekly update — anonymous Guest Editors, updated CJM template, and more
Anonymous Guest Editors
We are introducing anonymous Guest Editors – the quickest and easiest way to invite collaborators that don’t have Miro account yet. Visit Help Center to learn more.
Our users were giving us valuable feedback about the desired format of one of our most popular templates. We updated it, making it more sleek and easy to use:
Give feedback quicker with improved comments UX: type your comment and press 'Enter' to send it.
Improved lines menu
Line types and thickness were hidden under color selection in the menu. We added a separate option to the menu to make it easier to change line types and their thickness.
Quicker menu tooltips
Discover basic Miro tools in the toolbar quicker – we started showing tooltips the moment you hover over icons.
More intuitive widget resize
Now when you want to resize a widget in Miro, you will see a double-headed arrow that will help you figure out how to make the widget bigger or smaller.
Less is better
When Enterprise Plan users are invited to several teams at once, they will receive one email, inviting them to join the Enterprise Account instead of multiple emails inviting them to join individual teams. Users will also see information about their Enterprise Account Admin to know who to reach out to in case they have questions.
SCIM-provisioned users will also be notified via email when they are added to the Enterprise Account.
More flexible domain whitelisting
It's now possible to whitelist any domains, including public ones.
Visual differentiation for Enterprise Plan accounts in the sidebar
If you are a member of a team or teams, belonging to an Enterprise account, you will see an icon in the sidebar on the dashboard.
Bug fixes & other updates
Fixed a bug that caused widgets to become invisible when users changed their zoom levels.
Fixed a bug that caused templates and interactive frameworks elements to fall apart.
Enabled the option to hide collaborators' cursors during massive collaborative sessions to improve board performance.
Improved built-in video chat stability to enable organizing videoconferences for up to 25 users simultaneously.
Updated an in-product guide icon to make discovering this section more intuitive.

Summary of product updates Q1 2020
Introducing Trash – easily restore deleted boards
You can now access and restore boards that have been deleted in the last 30 days. Restoring boards from Trash is available for Team, Business, Consultant, Education, and Enterprise plans only.
If you’re on the Free plan, there are a few options for you. When you delete a board, you’ll see a confirmation notification where you can click “Undo.” You can also restore the board if you have the board URL. The easiest way to find the link is to search for the name of the board in your browser history or your email inbox.
Now you can create or update a Miro board directly within an Airtable base. Get the integration to combine the benefits of both tools and help your team manage shared projects from idea to implementation in a single place.
Instantly digitize and edit the results of your offline workshops, retros and brainstorms with Stickies Capture
Digitize and edit handwritten sticky notes – it's free and works on iOS, Android mobile apps, Mac and Windows desktop apps and in desktop browser! Go to feature landing page to learn more, and visit Miro Community to let us know what you think.
Manage Miro users via Azure AD, Okta, or Miro SCIM API
Available for Enterprise Plan users.
Onboarding and offboarding users in Miro just got easier. With direct integrations with Azure AD and Okta, admins can now simplify user management via SCIM. Additionally, they can implement custom provisioning with the Miro SCIM API. Visit the Miro blog or the Help Center to learn more and let us know what you think in Miro Community.
Gain more visibility and control with new user management & admin settings
Verify and claim company-owned domains to automatically capture newly registered users under your existing Enterprise subscription. You can also prevent users from creating new subscriptions to enable seamless collaboration under a centrally managed, company account.
Introducing a new license type to enable organization-wide collaboration. If your account has reached the cap for day passes and full licenses, new users will now be automatically added as viewers/commenters. They can request edit access in the Miro app which will notify company admins to approve the request for additional licenses.
Improved settings that allow company and team admins to set up options for how users can see and join different teams. Additionally, create hidden teams to ensure only users who are specifically invited can see them. We've also made it easier for end-users to join teams on their own, without needing an admin to add and approve them.

Quickly find the right board using Advanced Search
Now, you can search by board titles and descriptions to find the board you need. Use the Owner and Location filters to further refine your search results.
For our Enterprise plan users, you can take search to the next level with full text search across multiple Teams. We’ll not only display results for board titles but board content as well. Imagine finding the exact sticky note, card, or comment and opening the board in that very location.
Available for Team, Business, Consultant, and Enterprise Plan users.
