Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro in a wide variety of ways across our organization. It has proven to be helpful as we are trying to do everything from running a sprint retro meeting to having a product strategy discussion or I will often use it individually while I am brainstorming and working through a project or problem of my own.
  • Storyboarding.
  • Team Strategy Sessions.
  • Brainstorming.
  • Problem Solving.
  • Prioritization.
  • Vision Mapping.
  • I sometimes struggle with the UI as I am trying to select/move objects and end up getting the whole board.
  • It took me a little while to get the hang of facilitating sessions, especially using multiple frames and hidden sections.
  • It is probably my own failure, but I'd like to become better educated on many of the features and capabilities of Miro as I am sure that I have barely scratched the surface.
  • Increased team collaboration.
  • Enhanced strategic direction through enhanced communication.
  • More involvement from individual contributors.
I came in after Miro had already been implemented within my company and was able to start using the product after securing a license. It was a very fast, streamlined process with no problems or issues.
I have been using Miro in a stand-alone fashion and have yet to leverage any integrations.
Our team is normally distributed across many locations, but that distribution has been magnified recently due to the impact of COVID. We have tools and software which allow us to talk and meet virtually and others that allow us to share and collaborate on documents and files, but true real-time brainstorming and strategic thinking would have been extremely difficult in a remote environment without the use of Miro.

Of all the tools I have used when trying to enable group communication coupled with real-time hands-on collaboration, I haven't found anything that has provided the same level of experience or satisfaction as Miro. Others have great communication capabilities, but Miro's collaboration abilities definitely sets it apart from the rest.
I believe Miro is perfectly suited for managing sessions that involve group interaction, discussion, or "group think" type activities. It allows for great interaction and gives the host of the meeting the ability to "control" or "guide" the focus of group members from topic to topic. It is great for real-time group interaction, especially when working with potential team members in a hybrid in-person/virtual environment.
