Likelihood to Recommend

Miro

Miro is well suited for scrappy collaborative exercises like affinity mapping where the relative spatial relationships are more important and visual design is less so. The sticky notes features are easy to use and can quickly capture a lot of information. Miro is less well suited for designing user journey maps or other diagrams you want to look nice because the design capabilities are more limited. It does offer templates which can be easy to work with but more difficult to customize.

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

It's great when you need to drive real decision making and action; the voting tool is particularly useful in this regard. It's a great tool to use when you want to hear all voices, and not just from the loudest individuals. I've used Mural extensively over the last two years, and I've developed an online course in how to use the tool. I've run hundreds of participative workshops with it too, it's my 'go to' for running engaging remote workshops.

  • Built-in video chat.
  • Limitless whiteboard with frames to enable easy navigation.

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • It allows you to build from independent work to group exercises and discussions and using brainstorming and the voting tool to drive decision making and action.
  • It has functionality that allows you to bring your audience to different areas of the whiteboard using the 'summon everyone' function, and move between delivering material with 'presentation mode' and interactive exercises where students contribute ideas or suggestions.
  • It offers an interactive and engaging platform for collaboration and costs can be kept low because people can join sessions as visitors.

Cons

Miro

  • I also have a personal account. I'd like to be able to toggle between the two without having to log out.
  • When adding text into a shape, it doesn't seem possible to change the font size of one part without changing all of it. For example, if I want to create a title and make the font bigger, I can't do that.

  • The only thing that used to bug me about Mural was the fact that you couldn’t identify participants who joined as visitors (one time collaborators appear as anonymous animals). I noticed recently that visitors can now add their name which is really useful. I expect this change came from Mural user feedback, they do seem to develop the features over time.
  • Sometimes participants can't see images that you add to the whiteboard. There's a way around it but it's a little frustrating and I'm not sure why it happens.

Usability

Miro

Miro 8.7
Based on 3 answers
It's intuitive for the most part but some elements are a little clunky to work with. Particularly, resizing text, aligning boxes, and spacing things out evenly can be challenging without alignment and measurement functionalities. The tool is probably designed for more scrappy, rapid mapping rather than polished, final deliverables, so the usability for that use case is pretty good.

I have not yet had to engage support live. I have found every answer I needed by tapping the extensive knowledge base. I think they are taking the right approach in allowing me to self serve when I need some info. I will update my review if and when I need to tap a live representative.

Alternatives Considered

Miro

Miro feels more intuitive than InVision. I think of the two as Apple (Miro) and Android (InVision). Both are very good products and you can ultimately do what you need to with them, but Miro has that X-Factor where everything "just works". I was invited to a board, having never even heard of Miro. I was using it pretty adeptly within a few minutes because everything I wanted to do, I could. And everything I expected to find on the board in a certain location was right there. And the best thing is it's not "over-designed". It doesn't have 5 million features that make it bloated and slow. They've found the balance of function and form. That's the sign of a well made product
