Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is being used across our entire organization - both US and global. It has been essential in the time of remote working for our teams to come together to organize our thoughts, whiteboard, and discuss strategy. Specifically, it has been a major boon for us to organize sprints and our tasks. The functionality within Miro to live update tasks, assign ownership, and run polls live, makes standups seamless. We are also very excited about the integration with Microsoft Teams.
  • Organizing tasks for sprints.
  • Whiteboarding.
  • Live discussion polls and brainstorming.
  • Freehand whiteboarding (i.e. drawing).
  • Better UX for moving around the board in presentation mode.
  • More convenient post-it note usage.
  • Improved virtual productivity.
  • Reduction in need for in-person meetings.
  • Less time wasted on checking in on progress.
Miro's implementation was very simple. All users can sign in with SSO so no dedicated account and password were required. The App download was simple. However, Miro does take some time to learn and get used to - even for the most tech-savvy people. I would highly recommend utilizing how-to videos and training or having individual sessions where better Miro users help new individuals.
With SSO, very simple for users to download and sign in to Miro. Users could also use the App or Miro in a web browser. The only issues so far are that for external consultants or agencies - Miro is difficult to share and use. Additionally, train-up time is a bit longer than ideal.
The capability of Miro to provide a space for large virtual workshops, discussions, brainstorms, and whiteboarding has greatly benefitted our teams for remote working. It has also supercharged collaboration between the US and global teams without the need for meetings at inconvenient times. With all team members able to update and add to boards, we have cut down on unnecessary meetings despite greater collaboration.

Miro is well suited for large brainstorming meetings or workshops - particularly with dedicated facilitators that capture and update the board with the discussion questions and comments. It is very well built for sprint planning, standups, and retrospectives - the live updating features are particularly handy for that. Miro is not as good for blank space whiteboarding. It is very difficult to facilitate conversations without an already built board.
