Miro has been widely employed for various purposes, including brainstorming and facilitating team discussions. Its use extends to enhancing presentations with visual cues instead of traditional slides. The platform aids in efficient sprint planning and project management while aligning teams effectively. Users have harnessed its GenAI features for creating diagrams, compiling meeting notes, and conducting design tasks such as mapping user flows and journeys. Miro also serves as a crucial tool for customer research activities, from initial planning and note-taking to the final synthesis. Moreover, it caters to virtual collaboration needs by supporting design reviews, workshops with external customers, and fostering knowledge sharing within design teams.

Template Variety: Users have expressed appreciation for Miro's diverse range of template layouts tailored to different project needs, enhancing creativity and organization. The platform's extensive template options cater to various preferences and requirements, offering a wide selection to suit diverse project scopes and styles.

Real-time Collaboration: Reviewers have highlighted the platform's real-time engagement and updates as beneficial for fostering teamwork across different time zones, facilitating efficient collaboration and communication among team members. This feature ensures that all stakeholders stay updated with the latest developments promptly.

Effective Tools: Many users find the AI delete background tools effective for sketch uploads, significantly improving the overall user experience by simplifying tasks like image editing. The tool streamlines workflows and enhances productivity when working on visual content within the platform.

Performance Issues: Reviewers have frequently reported significant performance problems with large boards taking a long time to load, negatively impacting the user experience. This issue hampers productivity and frustrates users trying to work efficiently.

Limited Drawing Capabilities: Users find the drawing capabilities, especially for shapes, to be restrictive and have requested more variety in shapes and the ability to save brand colors. The current limitations hinder creativity and design flexibility on the platform.

Difficulty in Board Organization: Some users express confusion when organizing boards by department, struggling with determining the correct placement for new boards. This lack of clarity disrupts workflow efficiency and makes it challenging to maintain an organized workspace.

Miro is a lot easier to jump in for newbies to quickly create, design and draft up white boards workflows and on-going tasks for our whole team to see. Compared to the other tools I've tested, Miro seems a bit more intuitive and less complex to do simple tasks.

Each of the above products is also used in our environment, and has individual selling points:
- Microsoft Visio is suitable for diagramming and flowcharting,
- Microsoft Powerpoint is suitable for creating an illustrated narrative, and
- Microsoft Teams is good for asynchronous communications and has a few synchronous features (such as a 'whiteboard')

Miro however combines most of these in synergistic strength: Its synchronous capabilities far exceed MS Teams while enabling both narrative illustrating as well as general diagramming.

pros and cons with each. I describe Miro as the wild wild west. I can be utilized just about any way you wish, and governance is difficult to control. In contrast, many other platforms lack the flexibility, but adds an element of consistency and structure.

Miro is more feature complete than fig jam but Figma has added a few fun quality of life features that make it a little bit more fun to use, but I could totally see Miro bringing in some of those interactions like cursor chat and high-fives

I'm not a UX pro, but for my needs, Miro blew away the competition for two main reasons. First, Miro is so incredibly easy to get set up with and get running. It's not intimidating to use and it's easy for anyone on my team to just jump in and collaborate with me (even those adverse to technology). Secondly, it's easy to collaborate with others who don't have a license. A lot of other whiteboard tools require that even if I just want to share something with you (even without editing rights), you must have a license to even view. It's super challening when I have high stakes stakeholders I want to share something I build in a whiteboard app but I know it's going to be clunky for them to have to log in/sign up.

Many of these tools have their own use case. I typically turn to Miro for the ease of sharing information (competes with Google Drive and Box), the project planning (Drive/Box/Trello), the visual storytelling (competes with Figma, Illustrator), and data analysis (competes with Dovetail, Figma). Depending on the need, I typically have multiple of these for a given project.

I used Mural before Miro. I liked that it had quite a few templates, but disliked how ugly things got quickly. the restrictive design system of Miro means that you have to work HARD to make things ugly (though my SOs certainly seem to find a way).

We use FigJam for projects that are super UI focused, and it's great when you're pulling apart a UI. and it's whimsical. And its AI tool is pretty fantastic. But it's also harder to get people involved, and the licensing can be annoying.

Miro offers a more versatile platform and with richer features compared to Microsoft Whiteboard. Also provides a more intuitive user interface. In a nutshell, we prefer Miro for its comprehensive and robust collaborative whiteboarding capabilities. Whiteboard has limited customization options for layouts, colors, and fonts. Whiteboard has limited integration capabilities compared to Miro, from my experience.

Miro stands out as a brainstorming and collaboration tool that supports cross collaboration and multiple inputs exceptionally well. It is especially good at providing templates to accelerate kick offs and diagraming logic with smart, connectors.

Miro has many more swim lanes and templates, along with much more added functionality. While Mind Map was a great product, Miro is like Mind Map on steroids. I've not encountered situations where Miro didn't work, I'm always successful with documenting what I'm thinking and creating several versions on one board. Zoom in/zoom out to a world of my thoughts.

Miro is the better option because there is no sync issue and more tools within the whiteboard. Some of the templates in Aha seem too generic or difficult to customize. In order to make these come to life, there is a lot of preparation needed before visualizing with a business partner.
