Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro for all early exploration. Whether it is a team discussion, design prototyping, or retrospectives, Miro helps us to visually communicate with each other in real-time and synchronously.
  • Visually express your thinking.
  • Real-time collaboration with cross-functional team members.
  • Commenting and annotating to provide context for asynchronous members.
  • I wish that it was easier to just draw. Recently, some improvements have been made...but I think that I need to get an iPad/Apple Pencil to truly replicate the whiteboard experience.
  • I wish that I could create templated shapes, not just templated Miro boards. For example, just a few shapes that are grouped together, and then template them for repeated reuse.
  • Faster understanding of ideas.
  • Faster communication of early design concepts.
  • Increased team communication during team retrospectives.
I like how Miro is cross-platform. Web, Mac, ios, etc, I really wish that I had an iPad that supported Apple Pencil because I think that would be the killer application for Miro.
With SSO, it just kind of plugs in with our existing authentication systems. The Miro new shortcut makes it dead easy to get up and running with a new board. I suppose the only downside is that it is so easy to create a board, that it is hard to organize said boards.
As an organization, we went fully remote in March of 2020. Since then we have more or less used Miro to exclusively collaborate in early-stage designs. Miro has been invaluable as a tool to go from 'vague idea of something to build' to 'defined thing that we want to build'.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?


Miro seems like it was first to the scene, and by now has upgraded to have the enterprise feature set that we need. Whimsical is/was awesome, especially when focused on a very simple approach. Whimsical to this day remains the easiest tool I have ever used to build a diagram or flowchart...but Miro covers a lot of areas.

Miro is great for collaborative, real-time discussions. The speed at which one can get ideas from their head into paper is lightning fast. Additionally, Miro is a useful medium for non-designers to express their thoughts from a design perspective. For example, it is very easy for a PM to create a wireframe or prototype in miro, and share that with a designer to build out in more detail.
