Miro Integration

Connect Miro and Shortcut to align your team and collaborate effectively

The Shortcut and Miro integration helps organizations connect ideation and planning in Miro with the work being done in Shortcut. Embed a Miro board anywhere you can leave a comment or type in Shorcut - Stories, Epics, Milestone descriptions, comments, and Docs. When users drop Miro links in Shorctut, users in the organization will be able to see previews and collaborate on Miro boards directly from Shortcut.

What the Miro <> Shortcut Integration does...

Connect Miro into Shortcut with real-time previews of boards and enable your team to collaborate on a Miro board directly in Shortcut. Here's what users will be able to do: 

  1. Drop links and get real-time previews of Miro boards in Shortcut on: 
    1. Story descriptions
    2. Story comments
    3. Epic descriptions
    4. Epic comments
    5. Milestone descriptions
    6. Iteration descriptions
    7. Docs
    8. Activity Feed
  2.  Update Miro boards from any preview link in Shortcut for seamless collaboration

There are two types of embeds:

  • Public boards - Anyone can view the link in Shortcut
  • Private boards - Shared with team

See it in action: 

In this demo, we see a link to a Miro board being dropped into the description of a Shortcut Epic. Once a link is dropped in, users see a live preview of the Miro board. You'll notice that the preview allows you to see real-time updates happening in Miro. You can also see that the user in Shortcut is able to update the board directly from Shortcut.
