Considered Both Products
Asana
Chose Asana
Asana is the best for task management, it’s easy to use and streamlined for team members to use with minimal intervention. It’s a lot nicer to use compared to similar products like Projectplace although there is some difference in features. It has much better features in terms …
Chose Asana
  1. Asana is cross-platformed and is easy and quickly reachable via a web browser.
  2. It has permissions, filters, reports, tags, comments, etc. All these features allow tracking day-by-day activities of the team as well as weekly/ monthly milestones and reporting.
  3. It is quick, …
Miro
Chose Miro
A box is a great tool for storing information. It is not designed well for meeting facilitation though it offers some functionality for collaborative space. Asana is another great tool for managing tasks and projects, but when it comes to collaboration, it has many limitations. …
Chose Miro
Miro ranks very well with Asana and MURAL and surpasses Notion and Product board in terms of whiteboard capabilities.
However, I have not yet utilized project collaboration features of workflow, agile/kanban methodologies within Miro (if they even exist) so I cannot compare …
Chose Miro
Miro has been my favorite as opposed to Bluescape and Asana. Bluescape felt a bit outdated and not as smooth to use. Asana did not have the extent of flexibility or features for the purposes we wanted.
Chose Miro
We use Asana for shorter-term planning and resource allocation. Miro has been better for ideation, workshops, and any meetings that require an interactive part. I also really like its free nature and how it's a great place to develop ideas and plans without being restricted to …
Chose Miro
Miro has made our remote work much easier and effortless to collaborate and communicate with our clients on daily basis. I am happy and satisfied because this tool helps us to work on multiple projects, while brainstorming and ideation is on. Is a great meeting tool makes …
Chose Miro
Miro has more advanced features compared to InVision.Miro is has an intuitive and user-friendly interface thus making it more appealing compared to InVision.
Chose Miro
Miro offers a large number of formats and visual tools, empowering users to make graphs, flowcharts, and other visual content.
Chose Miro
There are several free sketching tools. In addition, iPads have freeflow which is available to everyone. Miro would definitely have lot more features than free tools but then cost-benefit analysis becomes justified only for users who use several features. For a once in a while …
Chose Miro
Miro is much more user-friendly and responsive and the UI is optimal compared to these.
Chose Miro
Fibery has so much more limitations compared to Miro. Their interface is feels very out-dated compared to Miro. It's also pricier than Miro.
Chose Miro
I think all products have its pros and cons. I personally like Miro for its interface and ease-of-use, once you get to learn it. I also like the look and feel of Miro versus the other products. For new users, it does feel very overwhelming but it’s not too difficult to learn
Chose Miro
It's been 2 and a half years since i last used MURAL, so i don't remember much (and it has probably evolved since). but i remember finding Miro lighter and more friendly. there was only when tool that i missed and i still miss that i have mentioned previously (regarding the …
Chose Miro
Very similar with some slight variations. MURAL is a little bit simpler. It's like the andriod vs apple debate. I would say MURAL is the apple and Miro is the andrior with more buttons and features.
Chose Miro
I've used InVision in a brainstorming session with an external company; Miro is easier to grasp as it is more functional. I much prefer using Miro than I did InVision.
Chose Miro
Miro and Figma are both great tools on their own right but the former is better suited for our purposes, while the latter is a better fit for those who are out there looking for a more advanced design and prototyping tool.
Chose Miro
Miro has a better featureset than either of these products and is designed as a standalone tool with collaboration at its heart- not an afterthought added on to some other existing collaboration product or a product designed to function for a single user where collaboration was …
Chose Miro
Miro has a vast campus to use freely and access with colleagues and clients in real-time. It is very useful to see the same page with them. The above products do not have such a feature; they focus on task management and project management. So, we adopted both products.
Chose Miro
I use Miro and MURAL at the same time for different projects - it all depends on which tool the team I join is working on. Currently, I do most of my work on Miro - in my organization I am even called "miro ambassador". But this is because I joined a team that was already using …
Chose Miro
Better value proposal then other tools
Chose Miro
I've only used Whiteboard in MS Teams. It's horrible - small, limited functionality, and very importantly - it's slow and laggy.
Chose Miro
I use Canva and Figma in addition to Miro. I'd say Miro is better for easy to understand charts and simpler tasks. I prefer Canva or Figma for more serious presentations and action items that require a more polished platform. Miro honestly feels like a school tool or something …
Chose Miro
MIRO has a more cohesive process flow than the other two tools when it comes to ideation, value lock, and developing MVP-like documents.

Asana
Asana fixed team issues like project transparency and communication, improved team performance, and enhanced office and mobile productivity. Upper management can solve project management issues quickly, and new hires can use the tool immediately. Asana's surveys simplify research and data collection. Its free trial, free plan, or paid SaaS subscription gives small and large teams the tools and centralized console to work through project tasks efficiently. Due to its complexity, Asana can be overwhelming at first.

Almost all of the tools I use for live meetings and workshop can be adapted to the virtual white board. Brainstorming session of course, but also planning session, SWAT reflection , needs analysis, process flow maps etc. I even use MIRO during live meeting to keep the discussion going afterwards. Great tools for asynchronous discussion. A typical use is for hybrid meetings when some people are in the room and others are remote. A few laptops for the live group discussions, a zoome connection ideally and and hybrid camera, but certainly a virtual board to create a history of our discussion.

Cons
Asana
  • Asana is not really a project management tool, it is good for simple projects only
  • UI has some glitches (doesn't save preferences, etc.)
  • Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project)
  • No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays

Miro
  • Sometimes, I wish Miro could have basic calculation capabilities (e.g. in the tables we can create).
  • Sometimes I wish Miro would let me share more clearly with other users and understand their level of access (whether or not to copy parts of the table, what functions are limited, etc.).
  • I'd like Miro to let me add images to the node of my Mindmaps. (not just as hyperlinks)

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

I use it almost daily, so we'd really like to keep using it. We have a lot of users using it on a daily basis. For me, it is the best online whiteboarding tool with the best functionalities available on the market. Even though people start coming back to the office, we keep using the tool very often

Usability
Asana
It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

It's pretty easy to use. My gripes are with some small idiosyncrasies with selection behavior with objects and editing text. When I move an object, it automatically de-selects it when I am not done with it. I have to click to select again. Text control is challenging and could be improved. It could use a little more styling capability. It's also weird that it behaves differently in a shape then when using the text tool.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

Superb. very well explained videos. Really helps get the knowledge up on the product. The slides are divided into the topics of usage. I have enjoyed following and implementing all of these slides. The videos are well explained and it is easy to follow. There are tutorials that you can take yourself later. It would be nice however if more training modules were added.

The implementation of Miro was very much straightforward. Since Miro is a completely cloud based solution, it hardly took a week for us to get this implemented and running in our organization. Also, a lot of self help documents and videos were available which made it easy for us to start working with Miro

I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

Way more user-friendly and easier to use than Microsoft products for collaboration. Permissions are easier to set than on SharePoint, multiple people can work on the same document without version control issues that often plague our teams. I will create an entire landing board for each new project and upload related files and details so they are all easily accessed in one space.

Return on Investment
Asana
  • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
  • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
  • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.

  • I was able to complete a Customer Journey Map for a complex legacy product, with dozens of variables end-to-end across the customer experience, collaborating with a large established product support team, in only 2 workshops plus a couple hours "clean up" for presentation.
  • In my experience, working with established experienced teams who support legacy products, creating something as complex as a CJM covering dozens of customer experience variables, can take weeks. I honestly believe that as Miro was quick to understand, easy to use, it allowed all of us to create content with value, far quicker than traditional applications.
