We've integrated the power of Miro, a visual whiteboard tool, into Shortcut to supercharge collaboration and alignment across teams. Together, the two platforms create a powerhouse for every initiative, providing a space for ideation, and bringing structure and organization so that teams can see the full picture of work. 

With Shortcut and Miro, teams will be able to connect the ideation and planning in Miro with the work being done in Shortcut. A Miro board can be embedded anywhere in Shortcut, where you can leave a comment or descriptions in Shorcut. 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. No configuration needed to start using the integration! 

See it in action:
