Overall Satisfaction with Miro

At our organization we use Miro in almost every department - when organizing events, Miro is a great tool to create interactive engagements for the participants, when brainstorming future actions, events, and projects, we can brainstorm, structure, and collect ideas on internal boards and even for long-term strategy development, Miro is a tool we use in order to include all members of the organization in the process while working together from all over the world.
  • Interactive engagement.
  • Online collaboration.
  • User-friendly surface.
  • Brainstorming.
  • Problem structuring.
  • Integration with video-call platforms, especially on phones.
  • Deals and support for non-profit organisations.
  • Accessibility and stability by many users at the same time.
  • Improved efficiency in brainstorms.
  • More creative and open brainstorming processes.
  • More interaction and engagement of meeting or event participants.
  • A better understanding of processes due to visualisation both during and after meetings.
Miro could be even better than it is if more people could access a single board at the same time. However, Miro does a great job in allowing users to visualize thoughts using post-its, arrows, and even the board templates provided by Miro. Thus, Miro is a great platform for companies and organizations working online but still trying to get some working-on-the-whiteboard feeling.
While using a video call platform on a computer, one can easily log into Miro in a smaller video and still follow the zoom call. However, it would be nicer if Miro was directly integrated into some video call platforms. So far, this - for instance - is the case with Zoom which works great. For other platforms, there is still room for improvement. Moreover, on phones, it is frequently very difficult to use Zoom and miro at the same time. A lot of users cannot have both apps open or, in case they do, they obviously cannot see the other video call participants anymore.
My organisation is only working online with a global team spread across all continents. Thus, it is essential for us to integrate alternative methods into our meetings and video calls - Miro is great for that. It allows both the organisation as a whole and sub-teams as such to select and coordinate tasks and improve our team members' engagement.

  • Notion
We did not look at Notion as an online whiteboard program as such, but rather as an alternative platform to structure our internal tasks and organize our teams. Here, Notion proved to be (1) too expensive for its effects and (2) offer too many features and room for personal exploration to allow for an easy, efficient, and minimum-effort use. Thus, Miro with its limited features proved to be the better option for us.
Miro works great when one is working together with a limited number of people (ca. 5-20) to (1) brainstorm and collect ideas, (2) structure these, and (3) gain an overview of preferences. Moreover, we frequently use Miro to guide event participants through workshops with a series of steps - all included in one Miro board - where participants can work their way through a flow chart. Miro makes that experience very engaging, easily understandable, and helps to visualize complicated processes. However, Miro is less suitable if more people are trying to work together as boards sometimes crash when too many users are trying to access it. Moreover, when too many people are trying to add to or edit a single board, overlapping edits may lead to confusion and mistakes.
