Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro as the primary tool for recording the actions items, reviews, and outcomes of some of the Agile ceremonies e.g Planning, Retro, Backlog refinement, etc. Also, we use it for creating and recording the technical solutions easily, with business/technical flow diagrams. The sticky notes/ emojis etc are really cool. During the team discussions feature like bring everyone to me, timer, etc really make the collaboration easy.
  • Sticky notes, emojis, flow diagrams with connectors.
  • Collaboration with "Bring everyone to me", sharing the link of a particular section on the board.
  • Timers.
  • Emails with Miro updates.
  • It is a bit slow, especially when it is being used by many teams simultaneously at a given time.
  • Less time spent on planning and designing.
Responds bit slow some times .. apart from that it is really nice tool.
Really easy to use, but still it's really vast and needs a bit of playing around to get to know all the features.
The browser-based feature is really helpful in sharing the notes/diagrams across teams, also the authentication features make sure it is accessed by intended users.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?

Yes

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?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

I was using Visio for flow diagrams and other UML diagrams. Miro seems lighter and easier than Visio. Also, the online sharing part is not present in Visio.
Suitable for recording the business/technical flow diagrams, as it is much lighter than VISIO, also as it is browser-based, the links to a particular flow or section in the board can be shared with the team. Suitable for recording the team discussion like the Retrospective comments and action items. Maybe due to the vast set of features, it could act a bit slow and in bigger organizations where it will be used by many teams simultaneously could be a bit frustrating.
