Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is used in various organisational contexts and for various purposes within my organisation. My personal two main purposes are in teaching students and in collaborations with colleagues in project teams.
  • Show an almost unlimited quantity of material on one wall - with great flexibility to zoom in and out.
  • Allow easy upload of different file-formats, TTS pictures, film clips, pdfs - and also copy-paste some items (others not).
  • Allow managing users' access.
  • Simple handling - for the most part.
  • Categorization/reduction of features to a reasonable lot.
  • I noticed slowed-down functionality when more than say 10 users participate on the same board. but I'm not sure what's to blame for this.
  • I'd appreciate an additional user/item status that would allow the creator of a board to lock some parts whereas others remain editable. this mainly applies to my work with students.
  • (Up to now I just hope that editing participants leave locked what I've locked).
  • I often have difficulties with scaling and with the miniature board on the right bottom.
  • Up to today it mostly helped me line up and organize content in project work in a team, which is also very helpful because it stays there, accessible anytime to be continued.
  • In the teaching context, Miro allowed me to save physical material (and probably time) for tasks as described above.
  • I confess that I've had only short glimpses at Miro's templates - and didn't find a reason to go in deeper.
In my experience (I usually send an email with the link and short notice) users are entered smoothly - and usually were delighted to meet the others' avatars scurry around. Of course, it helps at the beginning when participants can ask a peer when they meet a problem. Thus first contact in the classroom is an advantage.
I find it easy, only the fact of the reduced speed when many participants are on, has me give a "good" instead of "very good".

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


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?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?


None of the mentioned above provide the functions that Miro does. Then, I am always happy to move outside Microsoft's rule. For a similar reason, I doubted Slack's privacy conditions.

Miro serves of course in distant learning and distant collaboration situations, be it simultaneously or in individual timing. But I also use it in the classroom, because it allows moving items, eg to create, discuss and reorganize content structures and therefore thoughts - be it in individual work or in small groups. And it allows to share one or another result in the whole class immediately and with no effort.
