The integration combines Miro’s infinite whiteboard with Microsoft Teams for the most optimal collaboration experience. This experience is only available for current Miro and Microsoft Teams users.
As soon as you install the app in Microsoft Teams, you can access Miro boards within the Teams experience and during meetings.

Installing the Miro app for Microsoft Teams
First, you need to find Miro in Microsoft Teams Store or just follow the direct link to install.
⚠️ Please note that your tenant admin on the Microsoft Teams side should enable the Miro app within your 3rd party apps catalogue for Microsoft Teams. Unless Miro is approved, it won't be listed among the apps in Microsoft Teams Store.
Click Add to install the plugin.

Embed Miro boards in Microsoft Teams calendar meetings
You can attach a Miro board to any Microsoft Teams calendar meeting to give collaborators access to the information and set permissions ahead of time.
⚠️ Please note that the integration is not yet available for Outlook meetings.
First, schedule a new Microsoft Teams calendar meeting. Make sure to add a name for the meeting and invite attendees. Now, click Send to share the meeting invitation.
Setting up a meeting in Microsoft Teams
Once the meeting is saved, click on the meeting again and select Edit, so you can attach your board.
Click Edit to attach a board
Now, you will be able to add Miro as an app using the plus sign at the top of the screen (+).
Click the plus icon
On the next screen, you will be prompted to add the Miro app. Either search for Miro in the search bar or select Miro if you already see it. You will be asked to add Miro as an app to your Teams account.
Now you will be asked to select which Miro board you want to add to the meeting. You can search and select an existing board or create a new blank board. If you choose to create a new board, you can add a name to the board.
Next, you can decide what type of permissions to provide to your meeting invitees. You can choose from three permission types:
- Anyone can view - anyone on the Microsoft Teams' side can view the embedded board's content
- Anyone can comment - anyone on the Microsoft Teams' side can leave comments on the embedded board
- Private - the same sharing settings as on the Miro side
✏️ For Enterprise Plan Miro users, your access settings will follow organization-wide access controls which might imply that you can only share the board as in the board settings. Learn more: Managing Enterprise sharing policy for embed integrations.
Setting up access permissions for the attached board
Select Save so you can attach the selected Miro board to the Microsoft Teams meeting. Now you have attached a Miro board to your Teams calendar meeting. You can also access the board at any time via the Miro tab.

Launch Miro during Microsoft Teams meetings

During the Microsoft Teams meeting, launch the Miro tab from the top right corner.

If you want to create a new Miro board or select another board to share, you can add Miro as a tab to this meeting. From the dropdown, select Add an app and search for Miro.
Adding another Miro board to the meeting
Here, you can search for another Miro board by name or create a new, blank board. Choose a board and set permissions for your teammates.
- If a board is shared as private then users cannot access it within Microsoft Teams without a Miro account and access to the board (unless the board is shared publicly on the Miro side)
- Miro boards that are added to a meeting within Microsoft Teams are not yet visible and accessible when viewing the meeting invite from Outlook
