Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro for running retrospectives and documenting architecture. Miro is great for allowing remote teams to collaborate on a board in real-time, sharing ideas, and discussing topics that are important to the team. When documenting architecture the ability to zoom in and out is helpful to let you see the system architecture at a high level, and zoom in to see more detail of specific parts.
  • Multi user collaboration
  • Large boards that you can zoom in to see more detail of specific parts
  • Complete flexibility in how your organise your board
  • Can be hard to navigate large boards
  • Too easy to move background items when lots of people collaborating
  • Access control is bit cumbersome
  • Encourages collaboration in remote teams
  • Allows easier discussion of systems architectures
  • Easy to refer back to diagrams for reference
Miro is almost too flexible for its own good. You can do anything you want, but sometimes group discussions get a bit chaotic. You need to be quite strict about organizing your board and keeping it tidy as you go, to avoid losing control. Locking items you don't want accidentally moved in place is a must.
You can link to specific parts of a Miro board, but other than that I have not integrated Miro with anything else.
We mostly use Miro for team retrospectives and systems architecture diagrams, not project planning.

Miro is great when collaborating as a team on architecture diagrams or in free-form retrospectives. We often use the post-it notes feature to gather ideas which can then easily be moved around, grouped, and edited, allowing for easy prioritization of further discussions. We also use Miro for the documentation of systems architecture.
