Overall Satisfaction with Miro
We use Miro for Agile ceremonies and workshops. I feel it is a great tool for strategic conversations and using the templates helps save time and there are a lot of nice options for diagrams and I would use it even more if there were more sophisticated vector drawing options. But overall it's very easy to use and looks great in meetings.
- Scrum / Agile / Kanban.
- Mind maps.
- Workshop Templates.
- Brainstorm/Planning Meetings.
- Draw Tools (need bezier curve handles).
- Easier Collaboration ( more whiteboard and custom shapes, more prototyping tools).
- Lower Introductory cost.
- Allow guests to make boards.
- Allow Free accounts to do backups/or open board backup files.
- Reduced Time in Design Discussions.
- Helped Provide Requirements and get buy in sooner.
- Made a great backdrop for key decision making.
Again I only wish it were easier to prototype and that some functions for collaboration were more accessible without having to have a lot of licenses especially to teach others the software.
It's very easy to learn and integrate into an existing Agile process or Design Sprint. I think it's got most of the things we need and there's a lot of great examples and a great community to learn from. It's modern and has a lot of value with the shift to remote work.
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?
Did implementation of Miro go as expected?
Would you buy Miro again?
- MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)
I think Miro is slightly more fun and modern to use than Mural, however, Mural was not as complicated when we had users and guests using the boards. I do think we have gotten a lot of great value in using Miro, however, and I love the plugins and add ons and Miroverse.
It's great if the company can afford to license the whole team, but I have seen several issues come up when only some of the team has the ability to make boards or when I was previously unable to open boards made by others. There are people trying to teach others to use the platform and then the inability to put into practice what is learned with just a simple invite is sad, they shared backups and it seems there must be issues if they have chosen backups instead of invites for privacy. Perhaps improve privacy so people only using the boards temporarily don't need to buy a membership to be a guest to a board to learn or participate in a class.
