Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro has contributed a lot to our education process. Especially during this year, when most of the study program was online. Our architectural studios were based in the Miro environment and helped to create a digital collaborative environment between students and tutors. Moreover, during group projects, it also helped to sustain communication and up-to-date work progress. In some cases, when older members of the team or people from outside of the university were trying to use they faced a little confusion. Although most of the digital tools used nowadays are sometimes challenging for older people (about 50), it took them a day or two to get used to the intuitive Miro interface. Last but not least, I have been working on my dissertation using Miro. That allowed my supervisor to observe the work regardless of our timings and schedules. Moreover, that would also allow him to leave some notes and comments even if I wasn't present online.
  • Intuitive Interface
  • UX/UI Design
  • Collaborating with people from different part of the world
  • Mobile app is a bit bulky for usage.
  • Improve the variety of tools for drawings and sketching that would allow artists to collaborate in various ways.
  • Introduce real time communication feature with floating heads. Let me know if you need any further explanation. There is a startup that does it already.
  • Improve productivity.
  • More collaborative work regardless space and time.
Since it is a bit hard for older people (above 50) to get used to it, there might be room to improve and tailor the interface design based on user experience. During the group project, we used some parts of the Miro board for table games to distract ourselves - such as checkers, tic-tac-toe, chess. it was really uncomfortable to use Google Meets conference together with miro.
I think for me it was easier due to my experience with graphic design software. Most of the things were more or less intuitive. And the number of tools wouldn't be that big, so it is easy to orient among them.
It contributed drastically during the pandemic since most of the classes were not allowed to be offline. So Miro was the best option to use for an architectural studio with students. It was also successfully used for some one-day design competitions.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?


Would you buy Miro again?


Because now I work more with visual materials (posters, drawings, diagrams, schemes, maps, etc.) I feel like Miro does the best in comparison to other platforms combining project management tools, light communication tools, and a digital 2d environment to experiment with.
Miro suites very well for design professionals. Organizing online workshops and seminars where people can interact with each other. Showcase your portfolios and work. Convey research and use it as a notebook with comments, drafts, sketches, etc.
