Meet the simplest way to invite anonymous Guest Editors - now even users without the Miro account can contribute to your work on boards free of charge!
Once you make a board accessible for anonymous Guest Editors, anyone with the board link can immediately start editing the board content. You can share the link with as many Guest Editors as you need.

Why invite Guest Editors?
Use this feature to organize remote meetings (such as PI Planning or sales demos), brainstorming sessions, and workshops with partners or colleagues who either don't have a Miro account yet or don’t have access to your Miro team.
How to enable access for Guest Editors
1) Open the board’s Share menu.
2) Choose Can edit in the drop-down menu of Public link to board option. Set a password if you would like the board to be accessible for users with password only.
3) Copy the link, send it to your team, partners, or clients, and immediately start the collaboration! Anyone who joins with the link (and enters password if it is enabled) can create and edit the board content, add comments, upload files.
✏️Public boards are not indexed by search engines.
⚠️ Every user on the board (including all previously added viewers and commenters) will be able to edit its content.

- Access any boards except for the board(s) shared with them via a public link

✏️ Board owners on the Team, Consultant, Business, and Education plans can configure board content settings and define whether Guest Editors can duplicate the board to their workspaces, download files/images/PDFs pasted on the board, copy widgets, export the board as an image/PDF.
Guest Editors will have access to the board as long as it's public.
