Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro as a collaboration tool, and it is a key tool used within our Design Thinking process. I like that it is simple to use and there are a number of other useful features, such as timers and voting, which help keep us on track and allow us to easily prioritize.
  • Easy to learn.
  • Provides a good structure for collaboration.
  • Focused - it doesn't try to do too much.
  • When you are collaborating it could be beneficial to automatically assign colors to individuals so you can easily see who has what ideas.
  • It provides good collaboration/sharing, however, we always add other webinar software on top so that we can see each other and talk. This can occasionally increase the complexity of navigation so perhaps integrated plug-ins with Teams, Zoom, etc.
  • You may want to normalize sizes. Each user can control their zoom levels so you may see different cards of varying sizes with different fonts so it could be useful to automatically adjust the size of all items.
  • Facilitates communication and brainstorming, which is more challenging in a remote environment.
It was easy to set up and learn.
We use Miro standalone and have not tried integration with other tools.
Miro has been extremely useful at facilitating collaboration. One of the biggest items that we miss in a remote environment is the ability to brainstorm and create. This best happens in person when you can feel the energy of others in the room, and I believe it is important to also have a tactile experience. However, with the move to remote work and the additional costs and time required to travel when possible, we are always trying to evaluate the cost/benefit, and I think Miro is very useful when you are operating in a remote environment.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?


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?


We use it for lightweight, real-time collaboration. It works well. I don't believe it is the best for non-real-time or more detailed content, such as tracking changes to a document and would expect to use normal tools for those tasks.
