Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is used throughout our organization for collaboration and strategic planning. Typically there are 10-20 users per board, either on a team together or a cross-functional group looking to collaborate and work together. The most frequent use is for developing multi-year long-range plans. These require divergence—brainstorming and unique ideas—followed by convergence, coalescing around a few key themes.
  • We developed a five-year vision for our entire supply chain, combining ideas from all areas of the company.
  • We developed a 'Master Plan' for our immediate team.
  • We ideated on a fundraising plan.
  • The zoom in/out function got confusing as we were trying to also move things around.
  • It would be nice to have a way to 'duplicate and auto-group' things. That way, random notes could be collected more easily without messing up the original organization.
  • I'd like to be able to attach PDFs or PowerPoint documents directly.
  • Easier printing functionality - where you could create the page would be great.
  • Enabled collaboration.
  • Simplified documentation storage.
  • Created more connectedness in a virtual work world.
Miro works well as a browser-based platform. It allows each person to log in easily. The desktop-based app is a bit clunky but does make it easier to find the boards you specifically want because it only loads those you already have access to.
The board was easy to integrate into what we were doing. Most understood quickly how to interface with it. The challenge was with putting information in and extracting it out. On the whole, it was very manual. It did not allow for a board to easily connect to a PowerPoint, for example. Each insight/conclusion needed to be transferred individually. Likewise, the printing integration was limited.
The board lets us pull in ideas from people around the globe. Too often, collaboration is deemed to be an in-person-only activity. Although the nuances and unspoken reactions that go with in-person collaboration can never be truly replaced, the Miro system allows the vital 'co-creation' that makes collaboration effective — and equally important — engaging.

Miro is a great tool for collaborating with individuals in a virtual environment. It allows everyone to add to the creation of an idea. It is not well suited for an environment that requires extensive verbiage creation. Likewise, if all statements must be rooted in research, it would likely become too cumbersome to add all the documentation.
