Importing CSV files to Google Sheets

Use Google Sheets as a data repository for your Miro data. Work with separate worksheets for CSV file import or build a master worksheet by appending many CSV files with a shared format. You can, for example, build a master worksheet for all tasks in your project for an extended period of time, where you will always be able to find a particular task and go back to the original Miro board item by following the backlink.
