Overall Satisfaction with Miro
I started using Miro at the beginning of the pandemic when the face-to-face meetings began to be a challenge especially when I used to travel abroad to join company workshops and discussions At my company we use Miro as a shared board to allow everyone to discuss, write, comment, challenge ideas on a one common shared board My company has enabled ready templates in Miro to use during our brainstorming sessions and all that we need to do is to follow these templates just as if we are all set in one room These templates include but not limited to Problem Solving sheets, analysis board and many more The value that Miro adds to our work goes beyond the conventional way of doing these meetings despite the fact that I still prefer face-to-face interaction since people expression, level of involvement and may other human interaction cannot be compensated by Miro (at least for now)!
- It allows people to interact with each other virtually and instantly
- It allows saving previous discussion and notes for future use
- It allows using company ready templates as integral part of the board
- It allows creating flow charts, design thinking processes with contributions from different people
- To allow automatic assigning of people's names to work they've done without having to add a tag manually
- To allow easy integration of excel sheets, ppt slides and other Microsoft work
- To allow illustrating shapes, flow charts in easier way
- To enable audio/video interaction without the need of other calling apps
In the beginning, it used to be heavy on PC but I think it is getting better now I think Miro should develop more user interface to allow it for daily uses, from small tasks like daily to-do list too much more complicated projects like project management sheets and large action plans
It is still not too easy to use. Many features are hidden and hard to acquire by beginners. Maybe this requires short courses (bites) to be readily available (i.e. short videos) I am sure there are more features than I use today but these are not easy to access or clear to view just on the main Miro board
We had great results by using Miro, it was just a job done. It truly allowed us to communicate overseas as if we are in a single room It goes beyond just a whiteboard, it is more of the interactive board that let people live in the virtual world perfectly Maybe the next version of Miro should be a VR environment where people just need to hold their pens and write or draw their ideas
Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Miro's feature set?
Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Miro go as expected?
Would you buy Miro again?
It just works perfectly if a company built templates ready for people to use, however, on some individual level or smaller group discussion, I don't see Miro has enabled many functions for people to use Also, I don't think Miro mobile app is a powerful as the PC version. This needs a user interface further development
