December 27, 2021

Weekly update – Enterprise deployment for Miro’s Windows app, workflow transitions supported for Jira Cards, and more

Miro board UX improvements

We released a bundle of UX improvements to make using Miro more intuitive:

  • Better mouse navigation

Previously, mouse users accidentally moved board objects when trying to pan with the left mouse button. Now Miro customers need to use the right button to pan, which prevents them from making unwanted board edits.

  • Adding scrollbars

Some users don't realise Miro canvas is infinite, and that it's possible to navigate the board beyond the default viewport. We are changing this perception by adding horizontal & vertical scrollbars to the board.

  • Improved input device detection

We are now detecting mouse or trackpad change in real time & syncing change across all open tabs as well as giving users an option to turn auto-detection off and stick to their mode of choice.

  • Easy & precise selection

Selection of sticky notes, shapes, text, emojis, frames, and lines is now much easier because we allow to select them when the lasso is touching only ~1% of the object.

  • Double-click shortcut deprecation

Previously, double-click on Miro boards created a new sticky note, text widget, shape, or card depending on what’s been used the latest.

We deprecated this behavior because it was not something the majority of users expected, and created friction for them as they used to accidentally add unwanted content and had to delete it.

Enterprise deployment for Miro’s Windows app

IT Administrators will now be able to install the Miro app for Windows devices on a large-scale basis with the Microsoft Installer. They will be able to deploy it to hundreds of users and machines instantly, with the option to decide between auto update and non-auto update, to have more control over the apps in their organization. Learn more.

Workflow transitions now available for Team, Business, Consultant, Education, and Enterprise Plan users

Workflow transitions is a Jira Cards feature that allows to transfer a Jira issue from one status (e.g. 'In Progress') to another one (e.g. 'Resolved') according to the workflows set up by admins in Jira.

This update continues enriching Jira Cards experience in Miro making our product more robust for supporting Agile workflows –workflow transitions are important for such use cases as daily stand-ups, sprint planning and reviews, backlog refinement, retros, etc.

We will be supporting basic functionality available to Jira users 'out of the box'. It means that all Atlassian & externally developed plugins that can be added on top of the core Jira functionality are currently not supported.

Visit Help Center to learn more.

Bug fixes & other updates 

  • Personal (also known as Professional/Premium plans) and old Team/Paid Team Plans will transition to current Team plan in March 2022

December 20, 2021

Weekly Update - Updated SSO for native apps and Smart Diagramming updates

Updated SSO flow for native apps

Users who sign into Miro’s desktop or mobile apps via SSO will now be automatically redirected to the web browser to use the company SSO. They’ll be redirected back to the native app upon successful login. This feature is only available for Business and Enterprise plans. Learn more about SSO.

Smart Diagramming now available on Consultant and Education plans

Available for Business, Enterprise, Education and Consultant plans.

Our all-in-one diagram maker is one of the most commonly used solutions to align teams, create diagrams, and manage tasks, all in one tool.

We’ve now made it even easier for Consultant and Education plans to create advanced diagrams by offering you our Smart Diagramming solution, including several advanced shape packs (AWS, Azure and Cisco).

Want to know more? Check out our mapping and diagramming help center for all kinds of tips, tricks, and resources to improve your diagramming process.

Secure company-wide board sharing on the Enterprise Plan

Visual collaboration at scale is becoming even easier in Miro. With this update, it’ll now be possible to securely share Miro boards with edit access outside of the user’s team, eliminating the need to manually invite hundreds of collaborators or allow edit access via public link. This feature is great for instances where you need to share an editable board with all of your employees for things like PI Planning or company-wide workshops.

Bug fixes & other updates

December 13, 2021

Weekly Update - Collaborate with Miro and MS Teams, performance improvements and more

Unlock collaboration with Miro and Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams users are now able to share Miro boards with teammates who do not have a Miro account, making work easier and opening the doors to unrestricted collaboration. Add the Miro app to your Teams space to work together in real time or asynchronously. Brainstorm ideas, make decisions, give feedback, and boost productivity all in one place - with Miro and Teams. Learn how to bring Miro into your Teams space.

Automated deactivation and access expiration of Non-Team users

Previously in beta, now available for all Enterprise users: This new feature helps automate the deactivation of users by allowing Company Admins to set automated deactivations based on inactivity after 30 days. Learn more about this in our help center article.

Performance improvements for big collaborative boards

There are two significant board performance improvements we are excited to share:

  • We improved loading speed for content-heavy boards with 5000+ objects by at least 10%

  • We reduced the maximum board loading time for massive collaborative sessions with 100+ users to 40 seconds for the majority of cases (and more often than not even less than that!)

Please, note, that Miro performance may vary depending on the device you are using and the speed of your Internet connection.

Bug fixes & other updates 

We are working on deprecating grid mode in frames, and gradually removing the grid option from the frame context menu. Currently, the grid option is not active on the context menu for some users.

The customers who used this feature previously on some frames will see the corresponding tooltip on the frames. When grid mode is fully deprecated, the content on such previously created frames will be arranged in frames in freeform mode.

Visit the Help Center to learn more.

Visit the Help Center to learn more.

November 15, 2021

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.

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.

Bug fixes & other updates 

  • 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.

Jira Cards update, and more

Enforce Jira Cards authentication with individual user credentials on your account

Starting August 26, 2021 Miro users of Jira Cards integration will have the option to enforce authentication with individual user credentials.

Before this update Jira Cards integration required the use of shared admin credentials to access it. With this release, we're making Jira Cards even more secure and delightful to use:

  • All users (both new & existing) who install integration with Jira for the first time starting August 26 will have authentication with individual user credentials enabled by default

  • All admins of accounts, where Jira Cards are already installed, will have the option to enforce using this integration with individual credentials anytime between August 26, 2021 and January 18, 2022

    • If they choose to enforce authentication with individual user credentials before January 18, 2022, it will be impossible to undo this action

  • If they don't do anything between August 26 and January 18, using Jira Cards with individual credentials will be enforced on their account by Miro on January 18, 2022

Visit Help Center to learn more and install Jira Cards in the Miro Marketplace.

Team Management updates 

For Enterprise plan company admins, we have a few new updates that help company admins better manage their teams:

  • Ability to export a list of teams to a CSV file: get a comprehensive look at all your teams by exporting it into CSV so you can leverage and use this information outside Miro

  • Sort teams alphabetically: a better way to sort and quickly find your teams for more insights

Bug fixes & other updates

  • Now when you convert Miro cards to Jira cards, we keep the assignee (of course, if there was one on the initial Miro card) to save you some much-needed time!

Two new features on the Enterprise Plan

Board owners on the Enterprise Plan now can assign co-owners so they can also hide frames, use master lock, control board sharing settings, and more. 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. Please, note, that with this newest update co-owner is now available on two Miro plans: Consultant and Enterprise.

  • Company admins are now able to clone the default settings of an existing team to create new teams. This will help replicate the desired best practice approach faster when scaling Miro usage across the org.

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

Miro plugin for Figma update, and more

Miro plugin for Figma – now owned by Miro

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.

Install Miro plugin for Figma

Co-owner role & collaboration tools update

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.

Read our blog post to learn more and our Help Center article for getting started.

Introducing the integration with Dialpad

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.

Read Dialpad Help center article to learn more, and install the integration from the Dialpad marketplace.

Updates for the Enterprise Plan customers

This week 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. 

Visit the Help Center and watch the product video to learn more, and let us know what you think in the Community!

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

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

Here are some need-to-knows:

  • Trials begin when new members open a board and are only valid once for new users

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

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

  • 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 21, 2021

Weekly update – new features for the Enterprise Plan, and more

Frames improvements

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

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!

Read the blog to learn more and Help Center article for installation instructions.

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)

To learn how to use these new configurations, check out our Help Center article

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:

  • Employee number

  • Cost center

  • Division

  • Department

  • Manager name

  • Manager id

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.

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.

  • Better search

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:

From the Miro Template Library and Miroverse, you can now choose the team you want to use this template with while on the site.

No more overlapping templates

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

  • Users of 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.
