About Miro

Miro is a browser-based whiteboard platform usually marketed to companies and organizations as a productivity tool. It can also be a fun way for your attendees to engage with your Event App and each other.

Embedding a Miro board in your Web App is a great way to encourage attendees to brainstorm and interact together. To get started, go to and sign up for free.

💡 Keep in mind, if you want to open the board to people who aren't on your Miro account, Miro offers this as a paid feature.

Miro resources

Visit Miro's help center to learn about how to use the platform and create boards. To access Miro's help content while you're creating a board, use the '?' icon in the upper right corner of the screen.

Create your Miro board

Make a free account in Miro, answer the setup questions, and then create a new board. Use these instructions from Miro if you need guidance while creating your board.

Once your board is ready, click Share in the upper right corner. In the modal that appears, change 'Anyone with the link' to Can view. Now, click outside the modal to close it.

Click the Export this board icon next to the name of your board, then click Embed.

Now, copy the embed code and paste it somewhere else so you can grab only the URL link. The URL appears between the quotes after 'src=', as illustrated below. 👇

Once you've copied the URL, you're ready to paste it into your Event App.

Embed your Miro board in your Event App

Add a whiteboard feature

If you'd like a dedicated feature in your Event App where folks can interact with the board, the Web Link feature is a great option.

Simply add the feature to your Event App, edit it, then enter the URL that you copied in the previous step. Make sure you uncheck the 'Open link in external browser' box so the board will embed in the web version of your Event App. You don't need to use the 'Pass Data to URL' checkbox.

Attendees using the web version can interact with your embedded Miro board without leaving the Event App.

Mobile app users can click the Miro feature to launch the board in their device's default browser.

Embed with a Custom Tab

If you'd like attendees to use the board during live streams, add it to a Live Stream feature or a Session. For more information on using a Custom Tab in a Live Stream feature, read our Live Stream feature guide. For information about using a Custom Tab in an Agenda Session, read our article about adding Sessions to your Event.

For attendees using the web version, the board appears in a tab to the right of the live stream panel, so they can interact without leaving the live stream or opening a new browser tab.
