Overall Satisfaction with Miro
We have a company-wide license for Miro at my workplace, but I used it for free prior to that as I totally love the platform. It's super useful for collaborating and workshop sessions which I hold a lot of in my role.
- Super easy to pick up.
- Great at visual storytelling, which is not always easy to achieve inside PPT or other tools.
- Saves you creating boards from scratch by giving access to tons of templates.
- Love finding other people's templates/boards that they adapted.
- I find myself clicking on multiple things before I get where I want to go, i.e. sometimes objects like sticky notes don't move/drag where I want them to, sometimes I end up having multiples of the same and then can't delete them quickly.
- The fit on-screen function would be nice because scrolling through huge boards can be a pain.
- Emojis are not very pretty! Would love to have access to simple icons or emojis. Googling and copy-pasting them is great but often transfers the image background across and I can't always remove it (either by pasting or by dragging. It seems to work at random).
- Quicker to set up sessions.
- Easy to onboard colleagues.
- People get impressed when by the end of the session we achieve so much.
- It's great for productivity.
Not really, no. It took me a while to move around the tenants, but I think I got the hang of it now.
N/A -I have not had to think about integration.
Yes, totally. It was used to run lots of sessions within my team and very successfully. We could have done some in Excel or whatnot, but it would certainly not be the same with one person transcribing, as opposed to all users adding value.

I love Miro. I have used it for ideation sessions and workshops mainly, both with internal and external clients. At the start, I run an intro session and people pick it up really quickly so that's a huge bonus. My wife used it to run a lecture at a university and it was super well-received as well as no other tool that can give you access to so many templates. It works great with both small and larger groups but where the focus is required and also, where you need to ensure one dominating voice does not take over. Miro allows each person to have a say in their own language, their own style. I love that.
- Workshop ideation.
- Program increment planning.
- Sprint planning with teams that don't usually talk.
- User journey mapping.
- Diagram drawing.
- Workshop facilitation.
I absolutely love Miro. I love that the canvas is unlimited and I can continue adding to it and zooming in and out to achieve the desired result. I find it incredibly useful for sessions that require a visual way of working. To connect the people who are typically siloed, a tool like this is invaluable.
