Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I am currently supporting a student who is working with Miro to run a focus group session online. Because of COVID-19, it seems a more flexible approach on data collection for research including a broader reach of participants.
  • Making a mind-map with sticky notes
  • Copying images
  • Saving the file as pdf or JPEG
  • Working on the same board with multiple people seems less convenient and more "messy" compared to screen sharing and performing tasks by the main host
  • Amending the frame of Miro when working in Zoom or MS teams
  • More links to tutorials about different functionalities
  • More flexibility during COVID-19 pandemic circumstances
  • Providing a good alternative for data collection (and thereby preventing delay on projects)
  • Instead of using physical post-it notes, you can use Miro digitally (so there is less waste)
The reminder emails are too frequent.
Integration with Zoom and MS Teams works well but there is room for some minor improvements when collaborating or amending screen size
It has supported a lot of Ph.D. students at this moment in time. It helped them to create mindmaps for literature reviews but also supported online data collection.

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

Integration with Zoom and MS Teams is a plus. It is visually attractive and quite intuitive to work with. My design student picked it up as her preferred way of working so I am learning as we go along.
Trello, MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)
Well suited for running a focus group with a leading facilitator. Collaborating live through Zoom and/or MS Teams needs much more guidance and etiquette.
