Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Storyboarding: multiple users charting a series of process flows/events. The scope extends to informal settings with between 5-20 users. Release Tracking: grouping/classifying features across categories and their expected release timeline. The scope extends to informal settings (i.e., not formal documentation) with between 5-40 users. Whiteboarding: brainstorming ideas in virtual group sessions. Between 5 to 10 users.
  • Concurrent Virtual Users: many users can implement changes at once with little lag or latency issues.
  • Visualization: Miro provides useful templates as a starting point for various use cases.
  • Usability: Miro is fairly intuitive and allows most users to become proficient quickly.
  • Advanced Usability: offering shortcut compatibility with MS applications would be useful for users with experience (i.e., powerpoint shortcuts).
  • Exportability: being able to maintain various formats when exporting to external platforms would be useful for formalizing Miro boards (i.e., exporting to powerpoint).
  • Interoperability: importing existing sheets / PDFs / resources into miro could be a simpler process.
  • Ease of Use: Virtual whiteboarding sessions have been easier to facilitate with Miro
  • Reduced Training Time: New users have an easy time picking up Miro
  • Duplicative Work: having to revise formatting or create formal documents after a Miro document is complete is sometimes a burden
Miro is quick to train new users on and lightweight to implement at most organizations. Holding an initial onboarding session to introduce the tool and various use cases is always a good start. Establishing standards/codes or legends for users to use (e.g., blue = xyz department) is something trainers should implement immediately upon introduction.
Miro is easy to implement but not heavily interoperable across other systems. Importing and exporting resources to Miro could be an easier process. The integration with Jira and teams has been helpful, however. Integrating it with existing processes takes some socialization in advance (e.g., account creation, activation, sharing access to boards).
Miro allows easier virtual whiteboarding than previous options like a sharepoint powerpoint document. Miro has allowed us to brainstorm and share ideas visually in real-time with minimal lag. Adoption during larger sessions has been difficult, but the ability for a "driver" to navigate boards in real-time is useful in group settings.

Pro: Sharepoint/Confluence Alternative: Miro offers a simple alternative to multiple users simultaneously editing a document without an established Confluence page. Cons: Formality: few clients are comfortable using Miro for formal documentation or as a "Source of Truth." Interoperability: knowing that users leverage Miro in addition to other virtual tools, it would be great to see some easier processes for importing/exporting existing resources across various formats into/out of Miro.
