Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro for collaboration within user interface design projects. Right now, we're using it within our branch of the organization but could see it being used companywide at a later time. For us, Miro allows us to collaborate remotely, in a similar way that we used to use whiteboards for brainstorming, workflow documentation, and ideation.
  • Live collaboration with other team members.
  • Flexibility in the organization of information.
  • Easy to use.
  • Sharing boards with others and sharing permissions.
  • Selecting, grouping, and moving objects doesn't always work as expected.
  • Accessing a board can be difficult depending on the permissions the owner has set.
  • Improved productivity because of the live collaboration features.
  • Allows our clients to work with us live vs. providing static feedback in a PDF.
  • We've had to train some of our clients on how to use Miro.
Setting up all of our accounts was more difficult than it should have been. It was difficult to understand which permissions to set to which users in order to meet the goals our organization had for using Miro.
We had challenges with setting up user accounts.
It's been a great tool for allowing us to collaborate remotely during the pandemic. We start all of our projects with a Miro board now and it's been a great tool for generating ideas, collecting content, and documenting workflows.

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?

No

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

The collaboration features for things like workflow diagrams were much better in Miro than InVision or XD. We love the sticky notes and use them all the time. It feels much more familiar to us, as we're used to whiteboarding ideas in person with sticky notes.
Miro is well suited for live collaboration, ideation, and whiteboarding. I find it is less suited for polished design presentations since the design capabilities for some controls (like sticky notes and image transparency) are limited.
