It would appear this coincided when FigJam introduced the Tables functionality within FigJam back in March. Tables in FigJam is cool, but breaking this essential csv==>stickie feels odd

Hey @Richard.Nichol,

Yes, that is correct. The FigJam team is already aware, and we’ll continue to pass along your feedback and desire to have it back.

In the meantime, the best workaround is using the plugin:

UPDATE

Hi all, we heard you!
Our team had seen your feedback that you would still love the option to paste spreadsheet data as FigJam tables or stickies.
Now, you can use the quick actions menu to convert pasted data to stickies with Cmd or Ctrl +.

Steps:

  • Paste items from CSV or Google Sheet (places items into a table)
  • Select all items in table
  • Type “Cmd + /” and search for the word “sticky”
  • Select “Convert to Stickies”

I appreciate y’all fixing this, however the directions above were not super clear.

Here’s the steps I used to convert the table to stickies:

  • Paste items from CSV or Google Sheet (places items into a table)
  • Select all items in table
  • Type “Cmd + /” and search for the word “sticky”
  • Select “Convert to Stickies”

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the details @Victor_Kernes1 ! I added your workflow for more clearance, and I also added a video screenshot to make it clearer. :grinning:

Thank you! It works great! :+1:

following those steps. But finally worked out that I have to select every table cell before ‘convert to stickies’ is an option. Is there a quick way to select all table cells?

The convert to stickies is disabled/greyed out. How do I enable it? Does it only work on Mac’s FigJam desktop app?

2024 April, still not working

It’s fascinating how Miro allows seamless integration from spreadsheets to sticky notes, which is ideal for organizing research findings efficiently. The update in FigJam to convert pasted data into stickies is definitely a step forward, addressing user feedback for more versatile functionality. For those who work with sensitive data or personal notes, platforms like NotesOnline offer a secure option with anonymous note creation and automatic deletion after reading, ensuring privacy and peace of mind.
