1. Introduction

Mural and Miro are two prominent platforms for virtual whiteboarding and visual collaboration.

3. Mural to Miro Migration Challenges

Switching from Mural to Miro involves transferring all the board texts, sticky notes, shapes, connectors, icons, frameworks, images, files, and permissions. Transferring all this data allows team members to continue working in the new destination environment without disruptions.

However, migrating Mural data presents a significant challenge for organizations. This complexity arises from various factors, such as the differences in data structures, permissions, formats, and functionalities between the two platforms. To ensure a successful migration, IT admins and managers must navigate these challenges strategically and carefully to preserve the integrity and usability of their collaborative content during the transition.

4. How to Overcome Mural to Miro Migration Challenges?

CloudFuze migrates all the content, including texts, sticky notes, shapes, connectors, icons, frameworks, images, and files from Mural to Miro, addressing the challenges encountered during the migration.

CloudFuze converts unsupported elements, such as sticky circle notes and icons, into compatible formats like circle shapes and images in Miro. This ensures your content remains visually coherent and functional after migration, allowing your team to seamlessly pick up where they left off in the new Miro environment.

5. How CloudFuze Maps Permissions Between Mural and Miro

Miro has Owner and co-owner permissions, whereas Mural permits multiple owners. CloudFuze ensures a seamless transition of permissions from Mural to Miro, bridging the gap between their different permission structures.

To facilitate this transition, CloudFuze employs a mapping strategy that aligns Mural permissions with their corresponding permissions in Miro, as illustrated in the table below:
