Overall Satisfaction with Miro

It's used across all the engineering departments and for many different purposes among them:
* Brainstorming on solution finding
* Planning and synchronization of teams
  • Interactivity between users.
  • Being able to take any kind of content in.
  • Guiding users in mind maps and workshops with different stages.
  • Focus users in the given context.
  • Sometimes [it] is a bit confusing how the usage with the shortcuts can be done because the switch between edition and shortcut is a bit unclear.
  • I don't know if this is not possible but integration with Gliffy or an output format that we could include in a wiki more than the link would be interesting
  • Reduced time invested in brainstorming for solutions.
  • Improved and eased collaboration between teams.
I believe that Miro has focused on the mouse interaction with the tool and I believe that the keyboard could also be really helpful for power users. Keystrokes for common operations or clear management of the focus on keystroke and edition would be helpful. On my side, I'm a keyboard-centric guy and see that by creating notes I end up just clicking on a note and duplicating it to create a new one because I can't seem to be creating easily one from scratch just with keystrokes when I need to be fast at editing and creating.
SSO is good and I certainly enjoy that. However, integrating Miro in a content management service or a wiki is challenging because you can only have a link to the board and you can only deal with the content in Miro.
The impact is amazing because I'd say the collaboration has even improved the live experience. We've been working completely remote during the pandemic and Miro has proven to be THE TOOL that really managed to have us working together. We even use it in physical meetings instead of the physical whiteboards.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Well suited: Brainstorming presentation of concepts, planning, drafting of solutions

Not so well suited: Extracting the info of the workshop, for example, interaction back to Jira to create work packages integration in Confluence wiki.
