    Integrating Miro with Excel

    Integrating Miro with Excel can be accomplished through multiple methods. Each method allows for different levels of interaction between the two platforms. Understanding these methods is key to choosing the best approach for your specific needs.

    Copying and Pasting Data

    To connect Miro and Microsoft Excel, you may simply copy and paste data from Excel into Miro. This basic method allows you to choose whether to paste the data as sticky notes or as a table within your Miro board.

    Using Zapier for Integration

    You can also connect Miro and Microsoft Excel via Zapier, which allows for a more automated and dynamic linkage between the two platforms. However, the details of setting up such a connection through Zapier are not provided here.

    Linking to an Excel File

    Although you cannot upload or paste an Excel document into a Miro board to display live data, you can import the spreadsheet and then use the “Link to” function to link it to the actual location of the spreadsheet on a network file share.

    Embedding Excel Files from OneDrive

    It may be possible to embed an Excel file from OneDrive into a Miro board. However, this will not make the spreadsheet live on the Miro board, meaning that the data will not update in real-time.

    Creating a Custom App with REST APIs and Web SDK

    For a more technical and customizable integration, using REST APIs and the Web SDK to create an app that fetches data from an Excel sheet and displays it on a Miro board may be possible. This method involves manually creating the table on the Miro board and is the most complex integration option due to the difficulty of using the Web SDK.

    Sourcetable Integration
