Installing the plugin

Miro plugin installation
After installing the plugin, you can start embedding Miro boards into a Microsoft Teams channel. However, if you'd like to start receiving notifications, you'll need to connect your Miro profile with MS Teams.

Send a message to the bot
In the opened tab you'll need to authorize your Miro profile and select a Miro team - you will get notifications connected with the selected team.
⚠️ If you'd like to get notifications from several teams, you need to set up the integration for each team by connecting Miro in the chat several times.
Selecting a team

Frequently asked questions
1. Does each team member need to have a Miro profile to view embedded boards in Microsoft Teams?
- If you choose Anyone can view/Anyone can comment when embedding the board, even non-registered users will be able to view/comment the board. If you set the board to be Private, only registered users who have access to the board on Miro's side and are authorized in the browser will be able to access the board (unless the board is shared publicly).
2. Is it possible to get a summary of Miro boards' changes in a Teams channel?
- Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment. We have the feature in the backlog but no ETA yet.
3. Who has the ability to embed a Miro board into a MS Teams channel?
- The option is available for the board editors who received the role on the board directly by invitation or indirectly through team/project access.
4. Once a board is embedded, who has the ability to change the board’s access in MS Teams (e.g. from “Anyone can view” to “Private”)?
- No one can change access to the attached board, not even the one who has attached it. However, anyone can click Settings on the tab, and then choose another (or the same) board for the same tab and select another access level for the chosen board.
5. I am registered with Miro under two emails and would like to embed a Miro board from my second Miro profile. How can I change the profile?
- The picker shows boards of the user with which you're authorized in Miro in the same browser. Open Miro in another browser tab, sign out and log in to your second profile.
