Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I am independent working mainly for universities and Philips Design. For Philips, it's used by the department (Design) but also adopted by other departments. We used it for cocreate sessions, but it's now also used by projects as a working/collaboration space during the time. At the University I work for, it's also used by the department I am working for. We use it for classes and evaluations.
  • Intuitive to use.
  • Easy access for new people.
  • Many practical functions also for the facilitator (the clock, copy/paste, hide and lock function, etc).
  • The board is endless, you can make it as easy or complicated as you want.
  • The lock function. Somehow people/participants keep accidentally moving elements.
  • Drive smooth usage and prevent slowness. Participants have trouble with Miro getting stuck if they don't have a fast laptop.
  • I could re-use my set-ups more efficiently. Something I should look into myself to make reusable templates. But maybe Miro can help me stimulate this.
  • Structuring many projects. I can see an endless list of boards from colleagues (and students accidentally using my account). Not sure if this should be correct?
  • An easier way to organize and understand which boards are being shared with others and not.
  • Without Miro, I couldn't have done my workshops that would be normally on location.
  • Without Miro, our design classes would have paused.
  • Miro can shorten my time in creating a report out (digitizing post-it notes).
It went all pretty smooth. Many people are enthusiastic and can deal with Miro after 1 day of working with it.
People in different countries see the opportunity to collaborate more with Miro without the need to travel. Miro made it possible to continue and start projects in a remote way.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Fit for workshops, intuitive, less risk of deleting the whole board (InVision freehand), Easy to use sticky notes, Free access for students and universities.
Miro works well to stimulate people to have an interactive session and share their thoughts and create something together when remote. It's less appropriate for only sharing/presentation sessions. I believe PowerPoint with teams is better to keep people focused without being distracted by a moving screen. Also when the meeting is short and you don't have time to get people acquainted with Miro, other more familiar ways are more appropriate.
