Co-owner is a role that allows Board owners to share responsibilities of preparing and facilitating collaboration, whether it’s a live session or asynchronous. Co-owners can perform almost all the actions available for a Board owner, from managing board settings to hiding and revealing content - from now on, you will always have a backup in case the Board owner is unavailable. Learn how you can activate the role and invite Co-owners to your boards and projects.
✏️ Note that this feature is currently in beta and not available on all Miro accounts.
