Overall Satisfaction with Miro

It is used for quick collaboration, taking notes, using templates for guiding retrospectives. There are some issues with licensing (only a select few users have the option to create boards, who then invite others to collaborate). Summative, I would say it is not as widely adopted due to that. There are also other options (M365 Powerpoint Slides, Microsoft Whiteboard) used, which in turn dilute the focus on where one might find relevant information about other teams' work.
  • Layout.
  • Handling large boards.
  • Templates, Getting up to speed quickly.
  • Learning tips, introducing new features.
  • License management.
  • Plans for education and FOSS.
  • Improved Productivity.
  • Information is readily available.
  • Project members can bring themselves up to speed asynchronously.
As written in the paragraphs above, it's still ongoing. For a large enterprise that is cost-sensitive (You cannot get licenses for 30k users that might eventually use it) and pay in bulk. It's too expensive in my opinion.
Did not use it.
Extremely well, it depends of course whether the users are already familiar with the tool.

  • MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)
I perceive it as the market leader. Maturity, usability is all beyond what the other tools deliver IMHO.
Quick collaboration, artifacts that will be thrown away eventually. Collaborative Structuring and clustering information (Affinity Diagrams, Maps) work particularly well, also with more than one person working at the same time.
