Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is used all across our organization. Especially by the Product and Engineering departments. We use it to collaborate with cross-functional teams. It's been a great tool to boost collaboration in a hybrid and remote work environment. Teams use it to brainstorm and design solutions. We run retrospectives and user story mapping sessions on Miro.

Pros

  • Accessible collaboration tool.
  • Brings teams together by showing where each member is on the board.
  • Easy to use, quick learning curve.

Cons

  • Keyboard shortcuts.
  • Grouping and ungrouping elements.
  • More templates!
  • Brings people together in a remote environment.
  • Makes collaborating online accessible to everybody.
  • Having a visual way to represent knowledge.
So far is the best tool of its kind that I had the experience of using.
Many tools allow embedding Miro boards, like Confluence. But in my experience, it could be better.
Since having to move to a remote work environment, Miro has helped keep teams cohesion and an [sense] of belonging. Its been a great productivity tool for us.

I feel like Lucidchart is well suited for highly detailed technical drawing. But Miro is better for live collaboration.

It's great for team collaboration, whether it's in person or these days in a remote environment. It's particularly good to bring teams together when they are working remotely. Since everybody can collaborate simultaneously, it makes brainstorming and design sessions very efficient. It's great that boards can then be embedded in other tools like Confluence, to show details on documentation.
