Overall Satisfaction with Miro

At the university, we use Miro for various tasks from tracking project timelines, brainstorming, ideating, sharing prototypes, storyboarding, and running other various remote workshops. It helps people remain organized, focused, and motivated besides helping to engage participants fully. The timer feature is especially useful since it helps to find a clear course of action without spending forever beating about the bush. The comments, drawing, and chat feature makes the workshop sessions very interactive as well. The infinitely large canvas helps people think outside the box. Regardless of whether it's a two-week-long design sprint or a short jam session Miro is our go-to tool for collaboration.
  • Texts in sticky notes scale responsively to a reasonable degree helping to achieve conciseness without sacrificing paramount details
  • The simple drawing tool makes it easy to get across ideas quickly with sketches
  • Templates offer enough variety to run sprints, 5-why sessions, mapping user-journeys and many more team activities to save time beside being fun
  • Needs to add feature to play audio content
  • Voice command
  • Dedicated education accounts for students
  • Conduct classes while mitigating the risk of COVID
Miro helps to cut down preparation time besides making the session more engaging. I would still suggest planning ahead and doing trial runs since Miro can not hyper-customize canvas. It is a simple tool to use and a get a hang of quickly. It took a few minutes to become familiar with this software.
I use Miro with Figma. Figmiro makes it easy to share prototypes and keep things in sync without having to constantly update the canvsa. Besides that the link-sharing feature makes it easy to collaborate with others. It does not take long to learn that you can also include docs and YouTube videos on the canvas as well.

  • MURAL (formerly
Miro offers an infinite canvas that is more intuitive to navigate around unlike Mural. The navigation controls on Mural can be quite confusing sometimes and people end up moving items on the canvas. Updates on Miro are less of a hassle unlike Mural because it does not take long and is pretty smooth.
The scenario is where Miro is optimum:
1. Running design sprints
- Easy to organize boards means more time spent on the interactive aspects of the session
- Built-in timer pushes people to be efficient and ensures actionable insights
- Voting plug-in helps to choose ideas
2. Storyboarding
- Drawing tool makes it easy to makes sketches on the go
- Frames helps to organize stories in frames
- Comments helps to provide feedback quickly and collaborate seamlessly

The scenario where Miro is not optimum would project that are involved heavily with audio. For instance, projects involving voice design and sound design.
