Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I am not sure if Miro is used throughout UFMG, but I recommend it highly to my fellow colleagues. The templates provide us with researches frameworks that widen the scope of our analysis due to the tools and organization of Miro.
  • It links objects and texts.
  • Miro allows a collaborative workspace.
  • It is easy to use.
  • It can contain a big number of information from different sources.
  • The pencil tools could be put in a different area. I'd like to have freer access to the highlight tool, but I have to keep going back and selecting it every time I use it.
  • The Google image link/connection has stopped working. It was really nice and helpful.
  • The selection tool deserved its own place. I think all the tools inside de pencil category could be rethought.
  • It could accept audio and video files.
  • There could be the possibility of simultaneous control of a YouTube video that was added to a board. The idea would be to be allowed to control the reproduction of a video during an online meeting, for example.
  • The arrows could also work separately as a type of shape. I know that there is an arrow shape, but what I mean is that a type of stamp with arrows, select and denied signs would be welcomed by me.
  • Improved my creativity.
  • Decreased the time I spent setting up the elements for a collaborative project. Everything is in one place.
  • It made collaborative assignments more interactive during the pandemic mandatory virtualization of work.
Miro's very easy to use. The implementation does not take a lot of time as you would expect with a tool that provides the return it gives. The toolbar on the left side of the screen is very intuitive and provides you with the basic set of elements to work in a million ways. If you want to upgrade, you can explore the extra area that is located at the bottom of the list as three dots. There you'll find more ways to get Miro connected to apps that you already use. So Miro becomes an asset to your current framework.
I gave this rate because I didn't use the integrations. But as far as I've searched for them, it seems easy and there is a wide range of apps that allow for integration. I will try this in the future. I was happy to see that there is integration with Google Calendar, Notion, OneDrive, and Trello.
This has been the most relevant impact since I began using Miro. Miro is perfect for collaborative work. The whiteboard works as an area for drafting, brainstorming, organizing, managing, and finalizing projects. It gives us the liberty and the possibility to work differently but get to the same destination without interference from a previous setting. We can create freely on the whiteboard, and this is amazing.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

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?

Would you buy Miro again?


Microsoft Whiteboard, for example, does not provide the liberty and possibilities Miro does. And it was less intuitive than Miro. The connections with other apps are also differential. Miro has more functionalities and therefore is more complete, but without being difficult to use. The keyboard shortcuts are one example of functionality that makes Miro more accessible.
Notion, Trello, Todoist: To-Do List & Task Manager
The collaborative way Miro allows us to work simultaneously but also at separate times is incredible. The construction of a collaborative text, for example, can be done effortlessly with Miro because it shows the changes that have been made and there is plenty of space to add post-its, highlights, notes, and images. I also really think it's a great tool for mind mapping. Since it accepts and connects various types of information, they can be linked and seen entirely, as in a widescreen (with the zoom options).
