The whiteboard feature is a great tool for collaboration or featuring media. Each table in conversation mode has its very own whiteboard. Presentation mode also has its own whiteboard that speakers can collaborate on in front of an audience.

Locking Elements on your Whiteboard

As the Board Owner, you can lock specific elements on the whiteboard that you don't want people to be able to move around:

1. Click on the element

2. Click the Lock icon in the toolbar that appears on top


To unlock the element:

1. Click on the element

2. Click and hold where it says 'Long press to unlock'


Please note the Board Owner refers to the first person who saves the whiteboard to their Miro account (please see the section below on Saving your whiteboard). In order to lock elements, you must have a Miro account.

If you are an Event Host who needs to be Board Owner but cannot become (as someone else is already the Board Owner), check out this quick article for a solution.

Saving your Whiteboard

To save the contents of your whiteboard for longer than 24 hours you will need to sign up for a Miro Account. 

To do this, click the 'Sign up to save' button at the top of your whiteboard, and follow the on-screen instructions to create an account with Miro


If you already have a Miro account and are logged in, click 'Save to my boards' to save the whiteboard.


Please note, if you do not save the board, the contents will automatically erase within 24 hours. So, if you'd like to save the content for more than 24 hours, you need to create a Miro account first (please see Step 4 above).


Only one person can save the contents of the whiteboard to their Miro account (in other words, saved to the Miro account of whoever clicked to save the board). This person who saves the whiteboard first also becomes the Board Owner.

So as an Event Host, please make sure to save the contents of your whiteboard before your event starts (if you would like it to remain for more than 24 hours and/or you would like to be the Board Owner).

Exporting your Whiteboard

If you would like to export the contents of your whiteboard to your own device, you will also need a Miro account and be logged in. 


Once you have created your Miro account , follow the directions below to export:


Please note, only the board owner can export the whiteboard contents (in other words the first person to save the board to their Miro account)
