  • You are able to gather all the information in one place (images, documents, create sticky notes, add videos, etc)
  • It lets you collaborate with all your team/group at once and it has the option for you to lead the presentation and make sure everyone is following your steps (where you currently are in the screen)
  • It's a very dynamic webpage that encourages innovation, every person will use the objects in hand differently and allows for more participation within sessions
  • It also comes with templates ready for quick and easy usage
  • come with video tutorials, I remember the first time I use it, I didn't know what I was doing
  • When searching for a board, it can get a bit complex to actually find the one you are looking for. Maybe adding a tag because using/adding a location it still is hard to find the board you are looking for.

  • Allows for Collaboration
  • Permissioning for projects that should only be viewed by certain individuals
  • Organization
  • Flexibility in how things get built out
  • Including who extended invites to new team members (this feature used to be in the automated admin emails, but seemingly was removed)

  • Group modeling.
  • Pretty easy to use.
  • Activity templates.
  • Their licensing model is confusing and restrictive, which makes adoption in my workplace difficult. Specifically, there isn't a need for every person in my org to have an enterprise license when a lot of people just use it for contributing during meetings to other people's boards and don't really take advantage of all the features available under that license.
  • Auto-promotion of licenses is difficult to manage.
  • Miro seems to be quite tone-deaf when listening to community feedback. They drop features and functionality based on misinterpreted data, even when large parts of their community depend on those features for their workflows. They seem to be removing power user features year over year for more "consistency," but it just makes those of us who are power users and push for its usage at our organizations simply start looking for other products.
  • It feels like they constantly change things that are available in each licensing tier. Something available to you one day will not be available the next unless you move to a different licensing tier. Dealing with Miro's licensing and constant shift of expectations and features, there is a frequent headache, especially for organizations that have stringent procurement rules (like government agencies).

  • Allows for creative teams to share concept development.
  • Allows for teams to build upon each others ideas.
  • Allows for individuals to share images, videos and links for research.
  • Allowing for teammates to follow a single presenter.
  • Miro allows for a lot of information and content to be shared in a single canvas.
  • Miro could use a more modern update to the design.

  • Great for easily comprehensible visuals that support as material to facilitate meetings and achieve output.
  • Easy to find existing templates, saves time from reinventing the wheel.
  • Easy to navigate, pin favorite boards & help you get more organized.
  • easy to share board with different stakeholders.
  • Missing functionality: Being able to set up boards as a team and pin them for easier access to an entire team rather than individually.
  • Missing functionality: being able to create pdf's/slide shows to share after meetings with stakeholders when required.
  • Missing functionality: Agenda template to use in a regular meeting as a template to record minutes of meetings/actions, etc.
  • Missing functionality: based on your usage, receive automatic tips, e.g. I use brainstorming templates regularly.. that Miro could notify me based on my preferences when there are new features, shortcuts, etc, on what I use the most

  • Mock ups.
  • Collaboration/feedback.
  • Visual representation of ideas!
  • The table feature could use a little work to make it a bit easier and more flexible I think.
  • I'm not a fan of the "can comment" being only able to add comments. It would be useful if they could also add sticky notes and maybe text blocks. I'd love that kind of fine-grain control.
  • I do find the sharing model a bit incohesive, and others seem to screw it up a lot. I'm constantly fixing access issues for others.

  • Online collaboration with 100+ participants.
  • Flexibility and easy of change when creating board.
  • Use of apps (in our case especially Atlassian/Jira).
  • User interface and navigation is not always clear or intuitive.
  • Easier way to lock part of dashboards.

  • Clear overview of a current situation.
  • Easy to brainstorm ideas.
  • Adding new information to an already made board.
  • Simple to use.
  • Selecting a card is locking it for other users, most of the time unwillingly.
  • Sometimes middle click is used to move in the board, sometimes it's left click.
