Overall Satisfaction with Miro

As a design student, I use Miro to organize meetings and collaborate with my team. We use it often to do design sprints and to collaborate. Lately, I've been using it as a way to keep my projects organized. I've also started using it to make presentation decks. I find the draw tool adds personal flair.
  • Creating diagrams
  • mind mapping
  • Keeping projects organized
  • The navigation on the top right corner used to be visible. Now it's not. I think it worked best when it was available at all times.
  • Improved productivity
Miro is a great tool, and you don't have to be in a creative field to benefit from using it.
It took me a while to get the hang of using Miro. I found it hard to navigate at first. And there are many options that I'm not sure what to do with them. I attended a ‘learn Miro session’ and that helped a lot. If I hadn't attended I wouldn't have the same appreciation for it, because the Features aren't self-explanatory. Miro reminds me of a hidden gem; once you learn how to use it, you notice how brilliant it is. But if you don't know all the features, it's just a rock.
Due to the pandemic, all of my courses shifted online. Miro has made it easier for students to collaborate because it genuinely feels like you are working with someone simultaneously. Our meetings are always productive because we can break down our goals conveniently using Miro. a design student and very much a visual learner, Miro does an adequate job at keeping the users engaged.

Figma is great at Hi-fidelity prototyping, Notion is good at organizing, and Invison is good at creating low-fidelity prototypes. Miro is excellent at designing sprints and keeping organized. The overall experience you get with miro trumps the former, especially with the optional plugins. I especially love the timer and the dot voting.
As a student, I use Miro to organize all of my courses. It has become my digital space Where I can place all the digital media I’ve collected for my research. Every week we’re given lectures in pdf format. I upload all of them in miro, where I can see them without going to different files on my computer. In addition, Miro is great when I design presentation decks or when I create mood boards, the colour options are fantastic, and the eye dropper is so helpful at keeping my colour schemes.
