When you are getting started with Miro, your first team is created for you by default – you automatically get a free account which you can upgrade to a paid plan at any point. As your product usage grows, you may want to create additional teams to be able to separate work on different projects.

Creating your first team in Miro
Requesting a license in a corporate account
If you submit a corporate email address when creating an account, you might find out your company has already registered an account in Miro. You can either Request license or Create a new team to start whiteboarding.
Creating a new account as a corporate user
By choosing the Request license option, you can join your colleagues that have already been collaborating via a Miro account. To send your request to team administrators, indicate your team size and confirm your request.
Requesting a license to join a corporate account in Miro
As it might take some time for the team administrator to process your request, Miro will suggest you create your own free team to start working right away.
Creating your own team after requesting a license
💡 Even if you’re joining a team as a user, it’s important to create your own team in the following cases:
- you’re planning to use Miro for your own projects unrelated to the team you've been invited to
- there is a possibility that you may leave your corporate team in the future.
⚠️ New users who join Miro by requesting a license will not have the option to create their own team. Only Miro support can create a team for such users.
⚠️ The option to create a team is displayed for those who are not members of any team and have no boards on the dashboard.
Joining an existing team
If it turns out there are a few Miro teams already created by your colleagues, you will see the list of such teams after confirming your registration.
⚠️ Team administrators can allow or restrict the discoverability of teams. For more information about this, please read Managing Team Discovery and Access.
Joining an existing team in Miro
Click Join next to the team name and answer the questions – this will help Miro show only relevant tips and features during your first sessions.

Creating a new team
If you don’t want to join an existing corporate team, choose the Create a new team option that you will see after registration.
Creating a new corporate team in Miro
After clicking Create a new team, you will be suggested to fill out details: team name, specialisation and company size.
Setting up a new corporate team
💡 You can enable your colleagues to join your new team just like you could join one of your company teams before creating yours. Anyone registered with your company domain will be able to join your team if you tick the checkbox as shown below:

Creating additional teams in Miro
Creating new teams for new projects makes the most sense when you need to invite different people to work on them, and want to be able to manage content and access to it in the most efficient way possible.
There are three main options available for users seeking multi-team functionality:
- Purchasing multiple Team Plan accounts as needed
- Purchasing Consultant Plan if you do consulting work with multiple clients on a regular basis
- Purchasing Enterprise Plan if you work in an organisation with advanced security and user management requirements, where different teams will be using Miro for different projects
