Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro in a variety of ways, brainstorming, Sprint planning, class component diagrams. It essentially replaces whiteboards and also allows us to quickly build flowcharts in a collaborative way. Miro has proven useful particularly in situations where face-to-face contact has proven difficult over the last few years, but beyond that, it has reshaped how we collaborate in whiteboard, sticky note, type planning sessions.
  • Remote collaboration
  • Flowchart and process diagrams
  • Easy to work in shared evolving documents with a single reference point.
  • Add a colour blind scheme, with colour choice and contrast colours suggested for compliance.
  • Add dyslexia support fonts, and mark them as such.
  • Add a focus function, that can users can use to allow others to focus attention on a particular area at the zoom level the focus sender was at the time of the focus request.
  • No need for paper notes and whiteboards.
  • Remote connection means we don't need to book rooms for collaboration, or training days.
  • Sharing templates save on time spent recreating work or transferring from nondigital form to sprint boards.
I believe that accessibility functions could be improved, and it's sometimes difficult to find a board you have been invited to. Perhaps some new filters for boards you have access to, and sorting them appropriately would help improve it. A send to MS Planner, and Send to Jira option for cards would be particularly useful. In general, the software is reliable and a vast improvement over previous tools.
Too much time is spent converting from one platform to another. It's probably the weakest point of the software. It's a great tool otherwise, but there's a need for a "task" template that can send a few pieces of shared info direction the MS Planner, Trello, Jira. It's a time-consuming issue, and the tool would save a lot of time if there was a way to assign tasks to a backlog directly.
Miro has given us the opportunity to display ideas like mind maps to students in a way that the process itself can be shown in real-time, online, and collaboratively. The tool is also used for training sessions, that can be held online. In a traditional whiteboard situation, there is usually a single person who holds a pen, or a few who are the dominant contributors. Miro allows for normally unheard voices to add their notes to the board.

Miro is much more user-friendly than the other options available. The interface is more intuitive, and this decreases the learning requirements imposed on each user. Quick aligning objects, and simple options for creating context-sensitive lines to connect objects allow for boards to be created in a short time frame.
Miro is suited to any situation where users are asked to collaborate on evolving documents. Particularly documents like sprint planning, or software development. Miro also works particularly well for paper-based game design, easily creating tokens and pieces. The ability to group objects also allows the creation of simple forms that can be restructured based on the needs.
