Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is used across the whole organization by separate teams and departments on a variety of projects. It mostly addresses the need to have a common place for brainstorming and planning when that work is done virtually and with project members in different locations and time zones. It allows a better interface for free-form planning exercises than current MS Office options and allows for simultaneous and seamless editing and general white-board style brainstorming in a virtual setting.
  • Easy to use UI that mimics whiteboard features.
  • Tagging of items to help with the search.
  • Easy to share boards with others.
  • General search features can be better.
  • Better organization of groups of boards or sections within boards.
  • The sizing of post-its and objects is sometimes not intuitive.
  • Reduced back and forth time required when brainstorming and getting feedback.
  • Improved productivity by making key ideas available and editable.
  • Improved meeting productivity by allowing users to add their own notes during the meeting and see other people's edits in real-time.
Overall implementation was smooth and fairly straightforward. It has an easy start-up and also fairly easy to add new users and give them the proper access that they need. Teams don't generally have many complaints about getting access to this tool and there was nothing problematic with the licensing.
We currently don't have Miro integrated with any of our other software since we haven't needed to port the information to another platform. We use SSO, but it is not currently integrated with MS Teams or any of our other software so cannot comment on ease of integration. When needed we provide a link to the Miro board that we're referencing.
It's made it a lot easier to collaborate on new projects especially when stakeholders and team members aren't able to meet in person. The online whiteboard makes it so that discussions can be unstructured but productive and allows for better brainstorming exercises than can be done with PowerPoint presentations or other forms of notetaking that often happen as a result. The UI and post really promote team members to be more open-minded and the ease of moving things around is great for the later stages of brainstorming where the team is organizing ideas and driving towards the next steps. In summary, it has made our organization hold more productive meetings on new projects where there is a high level of unknowns.

Miro is much better than Evernote or OneNote in terms of being more object-orientated than text orientated. It also enables a more whiteboard-like feel where users can more easily move items and ideas around a board, connect items with arrows, etc than the notebook offerings which typically is more word processor inspired and focused.
Overall, Miro is well suited for situations where you want to have more free-form planning, brainstorming, or information sharing where groups of people need to be able to concurrently add notes, images, etc to a common board. This is especially useful for virtual teams and those in different time zones since team members can add, update, and edit the board at different times. This is less useful as a structured planning tool since it lacks that kind of imposed structure and is harder to search than some of those planning tools. Recommended for projects at the stage where high levels of collaboration and brainstorming are needed.
