Overall Satisfaction with Miro

To present schemes and diagrams to the board and clients. It is very efficient and effective for brainstorming exercises. I used a lot of the features of downloading images and frames, which allowed me to insert diagrams in slides and documents. It is excellent for team working since the whole team can be at the same time using the board. The templates are awesome! Save a lot of time in building charts and models that the team uses for idea generation or solution design.
  • Provide templates for executing exercises like Business Model Canvas, Stakeholder matrix, Journey Maps, etc.
  • Live interaction between the participant of the meeting. It really facilitated the team-wotrking
  • It is very intuitive to use. The menus on the side, the search button at the top and the blank board are great aesthetic features.
  • not live chat or video call feature. (At least i haven't see it)
  • the font is not possible to change or adapt... That was a problem for diagrams and presentations. the doc has a type of font, but Miro uses another type.
  • Maybe to ad the option to see a rule in the board can facilitate symmetry
  • Integration with google doc and micros office set could be and additional feature
  • quickly brainstorming tool
  • Easy to show ideas
  • improve meetings
I really don't understand them very well the question. Implementation of what? I noted Miro as part of my MSc. Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme at the University of Bristol and I keep using it in my current job. I use it a lot when need to create models or use templates. No other app like office or google has these features.
Here is where I think the problems with the integration to other app comes.
It is not possible to export directly to word or phrase a table with the format from excel.
The font type is really annoying, especially when you didn't pay attention to that in advance.
The other problem could be the quality of download images, which is not very high.
I used it a lot with my university colleagues and partners when we were designing business models or distributing tasks. The charts and diagrams allowed to create a common tool for everyone to be constantly updated. The feature for uploading documents and links was essential to share information.
In my current work I have used a couple of times to brainstorming with colleagues and organize the information

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?


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?


From Asana and Trello, Miro is far better, because it grants the team more liberty to control the board, move cards and create diagrams. It is similar to having a giant whiteboard for the whole team. While the other apps are too statics and cold. They have a pre settled structure and sometimes you need to go out of that.
Honestly, from Mural, it is not so different. I choose Miro because of the free option...
To make a presentation... it is not an option to create a visual follow track like other apps to make presentations
To work with beginners... for new people can be difficult...
To give participants restricted functionalities, for example in a workshop where you need participants don't move things pro write or create stickers... the owner of the board should have a button to make everyone else just visitors, or junior editors, or ...
