Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro to collaborate with others on design questions. We brainstorm, make schemes, and visualise processes together. Especially with the Covid situation, it is perfect to show and share your work with others through Miro. We even upload sketches from an individual brainstorm on a board, which will be discussed later on with the team. I also use it as a way to break the silence during meetings and provide meetings with some structure.

Pros

  • Simple interface.
  • Easy to use.
  • Many options for adding stuff to the board (images to video).

Cons

  • The way you can share and add guests, sometimes difficult for other people to join when they don't know Miro.
  • Lately, I was not able to use the laptop app, it seemed like the whole thing was offline, perhaps giving more guidance in what is wrong and how long it will take.
  • The way of zooming in/out is sometimes difficult for new users.
  • Explanation time of a process is decreased since people process visual things quicker.
  • During a meeting, it helps in creating structure and paying attention to the time.
Easy to implement in a whole range of different activities, from brainstorming to interviews and meetings. Even during an event, to gain input from the audience.
Miro can be easily integrated in the workflow. I even saw the new teams feature, I have not tried it out, but I'm curious and it can add a lot of extra value, since we also use Teams for communication.
It improved the workflow when we have to collaborate and are not able to be together physically, so Miro makes it easier to share/inspire and communicate stuff.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?

Yes

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?

Yes

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

  • MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)
I have used Mural too and Miro gives the user more freedom. But they are really similar. In Mural there are more options to connect the app with other apps.
It is an easy-to-use tool that serves many purposes. For example, the way people can connect together even though they are not physically together. It helps in communicating, making things visual, and therefore being able to better understand each other. When I brainstorm in real life, the level of creativity seems to be higher. When you use Miro, you have some boundaries.
