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.

  • Flexibility
  • Adding and linking images
  • Letting multiple people work on it at the same time
  • Drawing a straight line or arrow not connected to something
  • Have to sign in way too much, it is maddening how often you have to sign in. And the weirdness of the app vs the website.
  • Wish you had a monthly calendar you could pull from templates
  • Wish you had some better templates for our industry so that we didn’t have to come up with our own framework every project.
  • Can be difficult to stay organized, especially with new hires. Have to take to keep things organized

  • Retro. At different stages of the meeting it is important to be able to work with the board at the same time (to indicate what went well or badly), as well as to be able to quickly visualize the information (to combine clusters of problems) and to indicate solutions with arrows.
  • Display information at different levels of abstraction. This is especially important for our product backlog. It is important for different people in the organization to see different levels of presentation.
  • All the benefits of a physical whiteboard, plus the advantages of the digital world. Working with the world is extremely intuitive. You can invite people who use Miro once a week and I don't have to do a 15 minute briefing on how to use the tool for them.
  • The big boards are starting to slow down.
  • Due to the wide zoom capabilities, cards that differ in size by 50 times can appear on the board at the same time. I think this happens because there are no visible reference points for users. There are a few: font size (if you write in 50th, it seems a bit much, doesn't it?) or card size (when you make an L-sized card and it's so small that it's almost invisible compared to the others. These are minor things for board users, but inconveniences me as an owner.
  • I've tried doing presentations in Miro. It really needs a tutorial to figure it out. And I don't like tutorials, Miro is a tool that doesn't need one!
  • I still haven't figured out the templates, I have a few standard boards I could use but haven't found the right ones in the store. Also when creating a new board I always create a empty board.
  • Adding people is a pain. Starts meeting with developers from different teams and then it turns out half of them don't have access. Hoping it will be granted is futile. More importantly it's pretty pointless, the next time they'll need to edit something in Miro in another six months.
  • I have some large number of organisations tied to my home and work email accounts. Inside are the business plans of companies I have never worked with. I'm not sure they would want me to have access there. I think it's because I was once added to an organisation so I could work once on one particular board.

  • Some sort of homepage that is individual that can leverage a favorites across my many teams
  • The speed at which templates are filtered through the search take a long time
  • Want to be able to search across teams that I'm a part of

  • Real-time collaboration.
  • Quick and easy formatting of notes.
  • Tagging of notes to form themes and analyze data.
  • Guide new Miro users during a session.
  • Provides a lighthearted environment that is fun and inclusive visually.
  • Expanded design tools - as a UX designer, I am quite limited in the mockups I can create.
  • Expanded meeting features, currently have to make a frame to add it to the pres. I just want to select where the screen will stop for each point, like a snapshot.
  • Themes are really fun; I'd like more of those with content and suggestions on meeting types.

  • has lots of tools
  • it's very flexible
  • it's easy to use
  • when i add a sticky note (or card), I really wish that i had unlimited space to take notes. I always have to create multiple ones once i reach a certain word-count. that is the one thing i wish so badly wasn't there.
  • I WISH we could attach files to our notes!

  • Allows a presenter to explain a concept quickly with a few utilities like sticky notes, shapes and arrows
  • Color codes on a digital white board to represent teams or people to have all voices "heard" / represented during a collaboration session
  • Zoom in and out to capture months worth of work in one space allowing you to easily move from various sections and revisit without hopping from tabs or various files
  • Free vs. paid licenses - our IT department makes it hard for our associates to gain access so people are left unable to participate because they have to ask for a license and sit in an IT black hole
  • Admittedly I am a creature of habit and don't totally understand what Miro offers and what all the symbols mean - perhaps a way to use tutorials or have more help understanding in my flow that something could be helping me or save me time would be interesting. AI predicts what I'm trying to do?
  • I have various sections on my board, all different fonts. I don't know how that happened or if I can make everything sync up so it's legible as I cruise through without zooming out and in but that would be nice.

  • Drag and drop shapes, easy to change colors, fonts and sizes.
  • Organize content by frames.
  • Templates to use for roadmaps, plans, strategies.
  • It's so difficult to know what I'm entitled to with my license, especially if I'm accessing a board through someone else's link. I believe I have an enterprise license and own/edit more than three boards. My team has more than three boards. All of a sudden, I'm flagged as having a free version, and one of my boards is locked as "read-only." I have no idea what to do to restore my entitlement. I've logged out and logged back in.
  • Using projects to manage multiple boards is good, but somehow, the dashboard feels like a mess. It's not clear who on my team is actively doing what on which board. I'm not suggesting a new scheme; I'm just saying the current scheme isn't very good.
  • I hate not knowing the terms of my account, who my team is, and where it's all managed. Frustrating!

  • Amazing templates.
  • Ideation and brain storming.
  • Capturing team status.
  • Transparency across multiple groups.
  • The left nav ribbon is not as easy to navigate, and people struggle to navigate it.
  • It would be great if there were true help text when you hover, not just what the item is on the ribbon.
  • Some sort of navigation of the board as new people struggle with How to move on the board and how to not delete others work.

  • Sticky notes for quick data collection.
  • Timers are used for timeboxing.
  • Frames to organize data.
  • Frame list on the left toolbar to quickly jump to a specific frame.
  • Intuitive ease of use. Without any instruction, I was able to use Miro in a meaningful way immediately. Miro is much easier than other whiteboarding products I've used.
  • The right-click movement seems to 'stick' for me. I would like a better method for' stopping moving' and returning to left-clicking.
  • I'm sure I could use the templates better, but I haven't found them to be as intuitive as using the left toolbar ad hoc.
  • I also use InVision, which I believe Miro has purchased. I'd love to see Miro have an easy-breezy walkthrough capability.
