Learn how board permissions and sharing settings work in Miro - the guide will be helpful if you need to work on an individual project or would like to prepare a board before sharing it with your team or clients.
⚠️ Note that private boards are not supported on Free plan. Every board that you create in a free team gets automatically shared with all team members.
Step 1 (for Team Admins only).
If you're the Team Admin, you can configure default sharing settings for newly created boards. Go to Team settings > Permissions > Sharing settings. Choose Only board owner can access under Default settings for board sharing. You can also configure Project sharing settings there.
Default sharing settings
Check if the board is going to be created in a project. If the board is located in a project, it automatically gets shared with all project members. Before creating a board, switch to All boards tab to make sure that the board will not get into a specific project shared with other team members.
✏️ If you have a private project (not shared with anyone), feel free to create your board there.
Switching to All boards on Miro dashboard
If you're not the Team Admin or if you haven't configured default sharing settings as mentioned in Step 1, open the board Share menu and check the board settings. Here you can see whether the newly created board is shared with the whole team and choose No Access if it is.
