Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro across our entire organization. Our developers use it as novice users mostly just to make stickies and align quickly. Our design + strategy teams use Miro at a more advanced level using the platform to create frameworks, lead workshops, synthesize information, and create presentations to share with our clients. It primarily is used to address the issue of collaborating in the virtual environment as well as creating a record of discussions in a digital space for future reference.
  • Create stickies + organize.
  • Quick organization methods (voting, coloring, clustering).
  • Supports large groups of users working together (better than when I used Mural which used to freeze).
  • Zoom can be glitchy --- especially when novice users size things too big or too small to work with Zoom.
  • More color options for stickies is good for big teams.
  • Better version tracking of a whole Miro board (i.e. different versions of the same board done by different teams, etc).
  • Improved productivity / alignment.
  • Documentation of decision making / workshop decisions.
  • Increased collaboration and partnership with clients (better engagement than Google Slides).
-Easy to onboard and learn basic functions.
-Easy to teach to clients and have them participate.
-Easy to set up frames and copy elements from existing boards.
Easy to drop in links in zoom/slides to be able to cross over during meetings/workshops.
- Easy for teams who have used a similar interface, but can be hard for those who have never used a program like this before.
- It would be nice if dropping a link into Google Slides also came with the ability to update snapshots of the board at the same time.
-It is core to our ability as a hybrid company to be inclusive of our entire workforce.
- The whiteboard also allows me as a leader to see when people are engaged / active during the session and also where people gravitate by tracking cursor location.
- It deeply reduces the need for in-person meetings by being able to do it digitally.

Miro was the best for supporting large groups of users. I had switched because I had run a 50-person Mural board and it completely froze leading to a lot of complaints. Jamboard is good for working with people with limited digital experience (i.e. haven't used computers much), but the functionality of Miro is better for more familiar users. Google Slides is good for presentations etc. which are very short and we want to keep everyone in one space for flow. Moving to Miro is ideal for meetings of 1hr or longer where we're really getting into working and collaborating together. It also does require some more setup time vs slides (better just for joint notes) so the format of the meeting is considered in deciding to have to 'switch' programs by linking out to a Miro from a presentation in Google Slides.
For leading collaborative workshops.
For team fun exercises (joint sketching, games, etc).
Joint notetaking during meetings.
