Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is a really great collaborative tool that I use regularly. I mainly use Miro to run brainstorming sessions with my team (mainly with Engineers, Researchers, Product Managers..etc) and to gather feedback. My company has the Business version so we have access to a range of really cool widgets and features, such as the timer, voting, and lots of templates that save you time. When working with other designers, we mainly use FigJam now, just because all our designs are already on Figma and it's easier. I haven't tried the most recent Figmiro integration yet but I definitely will as I still think Miro is a good tool to use with team members who are not designers and who don't have or know how to use Figma.
  • Provides templates, saving a lot of time.
  • It's intuitive and easy to use for everyone, including non tech-savvy people.
  • Great for remote and cross-functional teams.
  • Option to add names to post-its so it's not necessarily always anonymous.
  • Option to add custom or more post-it colours.
  • Access to more emojis & stickers (like in FigJam).
  • Improved remote collaboration.
  • Allowed for agile working, thereby resulting in quicker and more cost-effective iterations.
It's great if everyone in your company has a profile, but it can get a bit tricky when you have to invite new members to a board.
It generally integrates easily with other tools you might already be using, such as Slack, but there are a few that could still do with some improvement.
My team in particular is mainly based in the same country, however, we are all working remotely. This means we spend a lot of time on calls and very little in person. We run a lot of brainstorming sessions and Miro helps keep these fun and productive at the same time. It unites the whole team.

Trello is a great tool but it really only serves one main function and it adds up to the tools you then have. Miro is great because it not only offers a Trello-like template but additionally it has a lot more functionalities, making it easier to have everything in one place. I thought Miro was still better than Figma because FigJam was launched and now I'm a bit torn. I think there are still a lot of functionalities and features that FigJam is missing compared to Miro, but at the same time, it allows me to keep all my designs and feedback in one place.
I would say that if you're collaborating with other designers, FigJam or Figma, in general, is probably the easiest tool to use because your designs are already there and you can edit them in real-time as part of your design critique session. When collaborating with other team members, however, Miro is a great tool! It doesn't require anyone to know how to use Figma or to have an account, and it means everyone is on the same page.
