You can easily embed Whimsical boards publicly to share your creations with the rest of the world or use the private embed option to keep them away from prying eyes. Whimsical embeds are live so any changes made to the original boards will also be reflected in the embedded boards.

Public Embeds

To create public embeds:

  1. Click the Airplane icon at the upper-right corner of the screen
  2. Click Embed
  3. Toggle on Enable Public Access
  4. Click Copy
  5. Paste the iframe code into your website or application 🎉

If you only want specific information from the board to be reflected in the embedded window, you can also enable Crop to Current Viewpoint.

With Enable Public Access enabled, anybody can view the embed.

Private Embeds

If you want to keep your boards private but still have them embedded:

  1. Click the Airplane icon at the upper-right corner of the screen
  2. Click Embed
  3. Make sure Enable Public Access is disabled
  4. Click Copy
  5. Paste the iframe code into your website 🎉

If you only want specific information from the board to be reflected in the embedded window, you can also enable Crop to Current Viewpoint.

If Enable Public Access is disabled, only members of the workspace the board is stored in will be able to access it. You and other members of the workspace will have to first sign into Whimsical to access private embeds.

If you're not logged into Whimsical, here's what you're going to see:

If you are logged into Whimsical but don't have access to the embedded board (due to it being in a private folder, team or a workspace you're not a member of), here's what you're going to see:

Note: Private embeds do not currently work in desktop applications.
