Miro add-on in Google Meet
- Here, you will have the option to sign in to your Miro profile or start a board without a profile.
If you create a Miro board without a profile, you will be emailed information to save your work and create a Miro profile within 24 hours.
To register a new Miro profile, choose to sign in and then click Sign up in the top right corner of the login window.
- Once you are signed in, you will see all of your boards. Select the board you want to use in the meeting.
✏️ You can attach the boards that you're allowed to edit.
- Select the right level of board access for everyone in the meeting. You can choose between four options: allow everyone on the meeting to access the board with view/comment/edit access or leave the board private and available for signed-in Miro users who have access to the board on the Miro side.
⚠️ Anyone can comment option is not supported if you embed a board located in a free team.
✏️ If you select Private in this flow but the board is set to public availability on the Miro side, it will default to public availability in Google Meet as well. However, the access level that you set for the embedded board on the Google Meet side does not affect the board sharing settings set on the Miro side. Learn more.
✏️ For Enterprise plan Miro users, your access settings will follow organization-wide access controls which might imply that some sharing options may be restricted. Learn more: Managing Enterprise sharing policy for embed integrations.
