Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Prototyping, scientific paper development, and mindmapping.
  • Multiuser collaboration.
  • Mindmaps.
  • Drawing diagrams.
  • PDF integration.
  • Background color change.
  • Excel integration.
  • Good value for the price.
  • Works well for teams (2-5 people).
  • Users templates.
Some features are promising but a bit disappointing after using, like kanban, or tables.
Very easy to explain and start using, but a bit difficult to govern and maintain when more people get to use it.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Miro is more flexible and doesn't structure the content that much. It gives more freedom to brainstorm ideas and put them on the canvas. It also has plenty of integrations. It has a bit worse support for backup and versioning (at least I'm not aware of it).
It is definitely a good tool for early phase diagram/mindmap/brainstorm sessions. It has good tools for prototyping, drawing a mock of a design or schema. Not the best-suited tool for governing content, where it needs versioning and backups. It happens that some elements disappear, especially when more people are involved. The tables are not that well supported.
