    Exporting Miro to CSV

    Exporting a Grid or Table to CSV

    To export a CSV from Miro, begin by clicking on the grid or table that you want to export. This action will allow you to select the desired content. Once selected, a pop-up toolbar will appear. Look for the "..." option on this toolbar and click on it. From the options that appear, select 'export to CSV'. This will initiate the download of the CSV file containing the data from your selected grid or table.

    Understanding Miro CSV Export Limitations

    It is important to note that the current CSV export functionality in Miro does not allow end-users to customize the format of the exported CSV file. The user may encounter issues with the order of the exported data, as there is no feature to adjust this within the CSV export process. Additionally, there is no option for a simple checkbox toggle to modify export settings, nor is there a capability to import data directly from PowerPoint into the CSV format.
