Overall Satisfaction with Miro

For creative warm-ups; for example, drawing together, dragging your dot in the wheel of emotions, etc. For feedback of training, we had; topics to continue, to stop, and to add? Also, feedback on projects. Brainstorming research questions; main questions to sub-questions. Constructing the first sketch of a project plan: Inventorising actions needed to answer questions, constructing timelines, etc.
  • Flexible to use for a broad range of questions and objectives, supported by build-in packages and templates. Very useful that you can lock things.
  • Quick in zooming-in and out, scrolling up and down.
  • Enables online workshops to be interactive also with many participants, due to the possibility to make structured boards (e.g. one activity/topic per block).
  • For more structure in meetings: possibility to move from one "activity block" to another like a slide in a presentation.
  • The possibility to zoom extremely far in and out works confusing on new users.
  • More efficient meetings
Miro was never very visibly implemented in the organization. The use of it depends on more enthusiastic (mostly younger) people that take it upon themselves to facilitate online meetings. Older generations have a harder time accepting and using Miro (too many functions, dragging, zooming, etc).
See last question.
Positively. It allows for interactive collaboration in a project startup. Because people can first think for themselves and put their notes on a post-it, Miro allows everyone to be involved in the start-up. This is very challenging online without Miro.

Would you buy Miro again?


Suited for online sessions with the goal of collecting ideas for a project or product or feedback. Less suited: when discussion or dialogue is the purpose of the meeting. In this case, Miro is distracting; people are too focused on writing and moving post-its and dots. This hinders connecting with each other. In general, Miro is not suited for real-life meetings; in that case, a whiteboard and pen and paper are more fun.
