Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is use by our organization for designing and illustrating complex technical diagrams of our software stack and as well as business diagrams in use across functional teams for collaboration as well. I use it to draft our product backend architecture for my own reference and update it whenever there is a product change or update. Miro large variety of templates also give me the canvas to help do further diagrammatic drafts of processes and flows which I really appreciate. It gives me the opportunities to think out visually at scale, and with templates that gives me room for thoughtful illustrations.
  • Great templates
  • Ease of use - the UX is simple and intuitive
  • Canvas at scale. The amount of canvas space for illustration is really how much you can do. It's amazing!
  • Cross diagram and objects linking - if there is a way to click an object and link to another - relationships if you like.
  • export to json or opml format will be nice. I like to have a text output outside of CSV which is a flat based text that do not show my diagrams objects relativity well due to CSV limitations.
  • More objects features. Like object relationship. Mindmaps types if you like.
  • Live objects updates.. if that is even possible. e.g. live text on an object from restapi or external source outside of collaboration updates.
  • We have used up all our licenses internally - That is a good sight it's that popular and it's value to our organisation.
  • Improved productivity? Definitely without asking. Quicker illustration to ideas and reduced time to effort in terms of brainstorming and workflows.
No, as I understand, outside of IAM, Miro being a cloudbased app, need not much implementation :) Other than SSO that I know our IT did, there is no implementation insights that I have. I believe it's really as simple as getting licensed and that is something very easy to do :D
It's right there in the app to click on. Can't get simpler that that.
Very much. Although I do not use it much in terms of collaboration as my timezone difference makes collaboration a challenge. I do see the value and believe Miro collaboration tools are on par with other cloudbased apps that I have worked with.

We have both Lucid and Miro in our organisation and I use both of them. Both have their own strengths. Lucid is well geared towards great diagrammatic illustrations and collaboration. But Miro templates for all kinds of diagrams, illutrations and whiteboarding makes it a great tool across our org as the vast variety of templates gives everyone a kickstart in whiteboarding - whatever functions they do; whether is technical diagrams, processes, business workflows, Miro has it all.
The amount of templates and apps is the best I seen. It's like Slack on steroids for diagrams, and even with only a generic idea of what you want to create, a template can always be found in Miro to get the idea going. This is the best to kickoff ideas visually, and the amount of apps it integrate with, deserves a shout-out. I don't see any short-comings for most scenarios except unless a diagram comes in in a proprietary format and one need to export out, then there are limitations.
