Considered Both Products
FigJam
Chose FigJam
Positive: FigJam is cheaper than Miro and allows connecting with FigJam, where we design our user interfaces. FigJam is more complete and visually appealing than draw.io, although draw.io is free. FigJam allows calls, which both competitors do not. Negative: Miro has …
Chose FigJam
I feel like Figjam is great at at what it does. It provides a great overall place to be able to use a virtual whiteboard and help teams collaborate. Especially remote teams. It actually does it better than others. There are some tools such as InVision Freehand that at the …
Miro
Chose Miro
Miro definitely has more functionality. FigJam felt really limited and not as easy to use. So the only advantage that FigJam really has for me is being already in Figma and being able to easily move between my wireframes and user flows or notes in FigJam.
Chose Miro
We were using Milanote previously at it worked well when we were in the office as we used Milanote mostly for mood board/inspiration/idea collation. Miro really stood out with its real-time collaboration features, especially its integration with Microsoft Teams, where people …
Chose Miro
Miro has way better functionality than jam board. FigJam, I haven't used too much yet, but it's comparable. The main downside is product partners are not familiar with it.
Chose Miro
Miro was probably selected since it’s the most widely known option across our company. I do however like the playfulness of FigJam and see a number of features there that Miro doesnt provide.
Chose Miro
Miro provided more intuitive interface, a nicer user experience and faster content creation and user adoption than FigJam for regular users. It made it easier for teams to collaborate, although draw.io has good collaboration options as well.
Miro has good user and team …
Chose Miro
Miro's UI and UX is better overall in my opinion. FigJam seems way too complicated in some areas and underdelivers in other areas. I really like how FigJam handles sticky notes though, a but more than Miro in that area.
Chose Miro
FigJam is still in its early days, so lots of things need to be developed and fleshed out. Miro has everything needed, so trying to move to another platform becomes difficult.
Chose Miro
The idea of FigJam was exciting since it would be a good addition to Figma, which is our design tool of choice in the organization. However, it could not deliver enough value and was less sticky than Miro, mainly because of limited functionality.
Chose Miro
Although we also use Figma due to the costs to buy FigJam and the need of other teams than design to have a platform to use, we haven't adopted FigJam.
Chose Miro
Miro was far more robust than FigJam at the time we started using it, so it was an easy decision. FigJam has rapidly caught up in many aspects, but Miro remains more accessible to team members across the wider organization and still has more features overall. At this point, …
Chose Miro
FigJam offers some nice fancy features for us in the design team, but our job as designers involves a lot of collaboration with the wider organization rather than just amongst ourselves. For this reason and because of the extensive amount of features we use in Miro, it is way …
Chose Miro
I liked MURAL, but someone else switched us over to Miro. I believe Miro had better collaboration functionality at the time.
I like MindMeister better for brainstorming
I feel Miro as more powerful than FigJam, but not a comparison to Figma. I'd never wireframe or design anything …
Chose Miro
I think Miro is great for product management. The templates and canvasses are very convenient to use. As a designer, I think they can improve more in the sketching part.
Chose Miro
We find a few of the other competitors either clunky and don't do the basics well or it's on the other end of the scale and too heavy. In the latter cases, it's great if, from a cross-platform perspective, your other tools are from the same or similar vendor. Otherwise, the …
Chose Miro
I am just more familiar with Miro. And I really dislike how draw.io looks, it looks very 1990s, and I am not sure if it is because of my setting or not, but when my co-worker makes an update there, I don't see updates in real-time. I can only see it after my co-worker saved it.
Chose Miro
In the end I stuck with Miro because of the free education plan. Further, I liked the ease of use of the predefined templates.
Chose Miro
I was more familiar at the time with Miro than with the other tools. Miro also has more features and capabilities than Google Jamboard.
Chose Miro
it simply has a much smoother learning curve for all users. I learned it in the first week, and now it is one of my tools of choice for any large meeting I need to lead. The other tools we tried, although many checked a bunch of the boxes for explicit features we needed, lacked …
Chose Miro
NA
Chose Miro
It's more user friendly and it has a lower learning curve!
Chose Miro
It has very similar features to the others mentioned; a lot of the basic functionality of using objects, text, and sticky notes. It seems to have the same learning curve as a result. However, we have now switched over to Figma for design and it would be nice to have more …
Chose Miro
I was not involved in the selection of the product.
Chose Miro
feels like it really focused on giving a solid solution by providing simple to use product and easy collaboration
Chose Miro
The reason we select Miro is due to the lot of files and resources we put in there. If we switch up to another app will take a lot of time to move the file. Aside from that, Miro already covered many features that all the competitors have and with Miro we can integrate with …
Chose Miro
Miro is the easier to use and has more valuable features. I'd only use alternatives if I am forced to.

It works best during the ideation phase. You can create sitemaps and user journeys very well in FigJam. It's not appropriate when you want to visualize the actual design.

The seamless integrations with top-ranked tools like Zoom, Jira, and Google tools makes it easy to connect with other applications and workflows. It's easy to create and organise ideas visual with mind maps, which is great way to brainstorming and collaborate on new projects easily. The support team is very user-friendly and supportive at any given time.

Cons
Figma
  • There is a lack of proper desktop client opposed to tools like xD or Sketch.
  • It feels floaty and not very precise, so to me, it feels like I am interacting with a beta software and this service is like 5 years old.
  • Due to its web-first design, it is not taking advantage of peripherals like Apple Pencil sufficiently.
  • Offline work is a poor experience in my opinion.

Miro
  • Privacy mode to allow participate to create cards that are hidden by facilitator.
  • Polls or voting that is simplified.
  • Allow the facilitator to separate background/structure items (that cannot be moved) from other items that everyone can interact with (that can move), thus preventing error movements in boards.

Miro is very good but still too basic. It would be great to have more precision and some advanced tools. More control over the text size and objects alignment is a need for our design team. Also, the experience on the tablets is not so good. Many dead clicks and problems while trying to select objects and tools.

Usability

Miro
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.

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.

Our implementation consisted in the following phases: 1. A couple of member of our teams started with a free account where they played with some of the features and mapped some of our business flows 2. We added more members into the product who were participating in the business flows of the phase 1 3. We divided into teams (Marketing, Product, Engineering) and we gave every member an account

I feel like Figjam is great at at what it does. It provides a great overall place to be able to use a virtual whiteboard and help teams collaborate. Especially remote teams. It actually does it better than others. There are some tools such as InVision Freehand that at the moment support more tools that can be intergrated within the actual document. This is especially useful when working in an all remote team and it helps keep thoughts organized

During pandemic we heavily relied on Miro for our meetings with our clients and projects discussion with our teams that were remotely working. We were able to achieve a great milestone over the years of using Miro. Boosted our workflow, collaboration and teamwork. I love the support team was readily accessible and proactive 24/7.
