Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Primarily we use it to do two things: to mock up dashboards, which we'll then go ahead and implement in Tableau, etc., and to facilitate workshops with clients, especially prioritization workshops. It's commonly used in our Data & Analytics practice, but I'm sure some others use it too. It's great for quickly creating and editing mock-ups of different kinds, which will take much longer to actually build.
  • It's very quick and easy to use.
  • It's flexible, in that you can pretty easily upload and design whatever you like.
  • It can be interactive; this can be tricky, but when it works well it's great.
  • More shapes! Only a small number can be drawn currently.
  • It can be difficult to figure out what your mouse might select/move.
  • Sometimes a little more structure would be nice.
  • We can iterate much more quickly on our dashboard designs.
  • Clients are always impressed with how easily we can present and move through different workshop exercises with Miro!
In general, it's very quick and easy to both figure out how to do whatever it is you're looking to do and to go ahead and get it done, which is great. On the other hand, there are some things that I've grown accustomed to doing in PowerPoint, for instance, that currently haven't been added to Miro; I wish they would be!
Miro is very quick and easy to use! It requires very little learning, and even workshop attendees who have never seen it before generally feel comfortable jumping, writing stickies, etc. But I have never tried to do any particularly complex integrations with Miro and other tools, so I can't speak to any technical challenges that might come with it.
The main area where we see improved collaboration with Miro is with our clients! Its ease of use and simple presentation have made it easy to take workshops that might have been done with sticky notes and whiteboards into the digital world on Miro, and clients love it! It really gets them engaged.

Would you buy Miro again?


I've found Miro to be great for mocking up dashboards and doing simple client workshops (we love writing out stickies to discuss possible projects, for instance, and then dragging them over to a prioritization grid), but I've found it lacking for tasks that require a lot of freedom to draw custom shapes and visuals.
