Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We have used Miro as part of some sprint work over lockdown to collaborate with different teams across the policy directorate. We used it to organize and plan workshops in advance and host a number of sessions with different stakeholders. We were looking at how education could be improved and ideas were shared with seniors.
  • Collaboration.
  • Working with partners.
  • Brainstorming.
  • Accessibility.
  • What is public and what is not.
  • Sharing ideas.
  • Improved productivity.
  • Saved ideas so we can return to them and build further.
  • Creativity.
I had to watch a number of YouTube videos to get started and felt that instructions could be made clearer for complete newbies. A lot of colleagues were also uncomfortable using the platform so we needed a training session in advance.
It can be accessed in various ways which confused a few colleagues and we were unsure who could see what. For example, when attached to a Teams page.
We were able to host interactive workshops which were really creative and much more collaborative than I think they could have been in person and we saved a lot of time and energy.

Would you buy Miro again?

Teams also has a whiteboard, which we were told to explore as an initial step. However, we found it really clunky and it was nowhere near as user-friendly or straightforward as Miro. We also did not know how to save or return to the work afterward which was unhelpful.
Miro was fantastic for thinking through workshops and being creative when people were unable to physically come together. We were able to really bring our ideas and vision to life and share some complex problems and ensure that everybody was able to contribute (even the quiet ones!). I would highly recommend it.
