Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro to conduct Design Sprints for complex HR processes, usually the ones that integrate with other departments and systems. We start understanding and sketching the whole process as-is and finish with a wireframe of how the new solution should behave. The last few were related to expatriation, retirement, and knowledge base.
  • Diagramming
  • Real-time collaboration
  • Wire-framing
  • The order of the elements on the screen is confusing, should have a dedicated panel for that
  • Panel for controlling what is locked (when with large crowds people starts to move thing around by accident, and it's difficult to keep track of everything that shouldn't move, is already locked).
  • The voting mechanisms could be more straightforward.
  • Easy to setup and start collaborating, saves us a lot of time.
  • Each session of wire-framing of process drawing that we spend a day, saves us about 5.
  • The visuals are great, helps us to sell the ideas up on the hierarchy.
The tool is great, the best I know for what it does, but sometimes we experience some bugs on the browser version that require a refresh of the page, like everything disappearing for someone, as if things were deleted. There is some room for improvement as well, such as the lack of ordering and locking panels.
I have never used the integrations, just the apps like Iconfinder and google image search. They work seamlessly and are effortless, just like any of the basic tools like post-its and shapes.
The scale of the product is impressive. We usually collaborate with less than 10 people, but once we hold a two-days-workshop with about 60 people, including internal and external collaborators from all over the country, it worked just fine.

  • MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)
I have only used Mural once, it worked just fine, but Miro seems to be the tool of choice of the people I work with, so I just stick with it. Another tool we have here but that wasn't on the list, is Microsoft Whiteboard. It's much simpler but is slowly catching up. For basic things like brainstorming, reviews, and retrospectives, it works just fine.
For me, it's the best tool on the market for whiteboard collaboration. Helps to get the job done fast and beautifully. It's usually the tool that I recommend to my colleagues.
