Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I typically use Miro for two purposes:
1. To collaborate with a small group of colleagues, for the purposes of sharing insights about research, then for developing ideas and themes. Typically this centres around planning projects or research outputs, and
2. To plan and organise my own research. I have also used Miro in workshops with participants (students and other researchers) to brainstorm, group, and develop ideas.
  • Visualising ideas and showing how concepts are connected.
  • Very simple interface that can be picked up quickly.
  • Good visual prompts about who else is working within a workspace synchronously.
  • There are limitations on how many editable workspaces one can create on the basic plan.
  • Importing images onto stickies can sometimes be fiddly and needs practice.
  • The option of inserting other modes would be helpful (e.g. sound / video / embedded hyperlinks).
  • Possibly increased productivity.
  • Supported communication with colleagues.
  • Increased opportunity for collaboration in online spaces.
Quite satisfied, I don't have any comments about how the implementation may have worked differently.
It's very easy to get the hang of and can easily invite people to join.
Has significantly impacted our ability to collaborate online as it resembles a known format that we are used to using.

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?


Would you buy Miro again?


An easy-to-use tool that I've used as a go-to workspace for collaborative projects. It is particularly helpful for projects where people sit across organisations, as it doesn't restrict access, owing to its web browser option. I've used it for visualising and developing research project ideas through stickies (as a familiar format). It would be less suited when there is a need for adding lots of detail (although this could be managed by zooming in and out of a workspace).
