Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Miro has become our regular collaborative tool starting from the morning meeting where we keep track of our day to bay operational activities and we use it to the extent of planning our product roadmaps, there are several use cases where we find Miro as a more effective and intuitive tool than in comparison to the other tools which were being in use since ages. In this aspect, I can say the pandemic has helped us to explore options beyond our traditions and we found Miro. Miro is being used by our whole organization at almost all levels. I can already see the improvements and additional elements being added to Miro is adding a lot of value to it and the recent addition of collaboration with other project management applications come as the icing on the cake. During this pandemic, it was quite difficult to conduct workshops where participants from several locations joined simultaneously and also were able to share their inputs and suggestions in real-time. The templates are one of the important elements in Miro which I make use of the most, the option of sharing the training board to a group of people and also hiding whichever slide you want to reveal during a workshop or so are really helpful.
- Adding new templates for collaboration.
- Timer and music options during break-out or ice breaker sessions.
- Keeping the users updated about the latest feature additions.
- Google image search within a collaborative tool, I used this option first time in Miro and it was working very fine.
- Suggestions for running workshops in agile mode.
- Adding fun elements to our operational meetings.
- Collaboration can be made more intuitive by adding some more visible elements.
- Navigation (within the board) options can be improved for those who do not use a stand-alone mouse.
- Sending quick snippet videos to the users regarding how to use new features added to Miro.
- Maybe video calling within Miro, so that we do not depend on some other tool for a meeting or a workshop.
- I can certainly say Miro has improved our virtual collaboration productivity by more than 20%, this is mainly coming from the time which we have saved running several meetings for the same topics.
- There were several workshops which we have conducted in miro without which we could not imagine how it could have been possible to do it on a virtual environment, during the pandemic times this has saved a lot of travel efforts by the colleagues.
- Since we were able to work on a team presentation simultaneously, it improved our delivery times for presentations from a week to a few hours.
- Miro overall changed our way of online collaboration.
Miro is being used as a tool for early adopters. It can be further rolled out as a collaborative tool for the entire organization wherein we can further explore the various use cases and probably suggest what other features can be added to the tool. There were no defined training sessions planned for the tool probably this is something to be improved in the future.
We have not had this opportunity so far, because the integration goes directly into the costing aspect of the application. I wish we have had this option to integrate our other business tools like Jira, One Note, Outlook Calendar, and so on. If there was an option to integrate these tools with the web version of Miro, it could have been helpful.
Certainly, Miro has brought in a paradigm shift in how we collaborate on projects from different locations. There is a kanban made in Miro for almost all the major projects which we are currently working on. Various templates provided in Miro have improved our productivity in preparing presentations for several occasions be it a board meeting or a casual team exchange.
