Embed Content

Lee Dussinger Updated by Lee Dussinger

Bring even more types of content into Opal in seconds using embed codes. The goal of this is to ensure that even more work – finished content or WIP documents – live alongside your big-picture plans in Opal.  

The supported content types include:

  • Figma
  • Miro
  • Google Workspace (including Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides & more)
  • Microsoft 365 (including PowerPoint, Word, Excel & more)
  • Box
  • Dropbox
  • Keynote
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Loom

For Miro and Google Workspace documents, the edits you make in Opal sync to the original content. 

How to use Embed Content:

  1. Open a content shell
  2. Select "Embed" as the content type
  3. Paste the embed code in the given space  
  4. The embedded content will appear automatically
