Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Our consulting firm, designers, engineers use it often with clients. More so after working from home more.
  • Great replacement for messy war rooms.
  • Much easier to capture thoughts as a group and come back to.
  • Good collaboration tool internally and with clients.
  • I even sometimes do illustrations completely in Miro.
  • Exporting long presentations with dozens of artboards is very tough. There should be an assistant in naming/ordering these in a good way. Our team members have spent hours moving around pages after exporting pdfs.
  • Some of the brainstorming tools that are timed etc were a bit tough to figure out with clients. There could be improvements on these.
  • Paid and unpaid versions look different, so when talking about certain features to a different user, there are often discrepancies in what we see and people have a hard time finding a certain button, etc.
  • Drawing tools can be improved a bit more to have some more illustrator-like capability. More vector-based shapes and even boolean shape generation would be very helpful. I often need very basic shapes to illustrate things. Potential for improving grouping/layers too.
  • Accidentally move boards and content around.
  • Remote collaboration huge plus.
  • I don't know if Miro will be as important when we spend more time at the office. However our physical space can get tight for large and messy war rooms, so Miro still may prove to be useful.
  • I hear it's expensive, even though I'm not involved with the purchase. A lot of our team still uses free accounts for that reason. We are a fiscally conservative company. :)
I was very impressed as a designer when I found out that Miro exists!
Miro to pdfs is a bit clunky in my opinion.
I think it did. Again, most useful in bringing fuzzy complexity to simple clarity. Also, having this nice digital war room to go back to helps keep our teams aligned internally and with clients.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Would you buy Miro again?


Very well suited for internal reviews, bringing clarity to complexity. It is very helpful when we work on what we call the fuzzy front end of projects. We are mostly on Zoom, so we don't really use the calling functionality in Miro. Not so good at getting solid presentations exported. Consistent formatting etc is harder to achieve on Miro. I do love the idea of not getting back to Powerpoint though. I don't like the fact that I can't have more than one text format/size within the same text box either.
