Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro in a few different ways as a Master of Design student: - personal brainstorming and visual record of thoughts, tied with links/thumbnails to resources, and clustered within bubbles to create meaning and connection between them- collaborative group brainstorming (in-person, remote, hybrid, and offline)- drafting user experience maps and graphics for presentation/communication of ideas- visually recording thoughts/reactions from everyone during a meeting without dedicating airtime to every thought written on a "sticky note"
  • simple toolbar that makes it easy for novice users to intuitively navigate (inclusive/accessible)
  • ability to comment on / edit a board without needing to make an account (inclusive/accessible)
  • It's very flexible and customizable, but there are also really great templates to fall back on and use if you're not inspired to create an organizational structure from scratch
  • An integration with Zoom (I know there is a new partnership with Teams) would be nice
  • adapting Figma's functionalities of making it really easy to make an 8.5 x 11 sized artboard, and an easy PDF export feature would be nice
  • aligned with the point above, more templates and guidance on how to use Miro as a means of designing deliverables that can be put in a presentation or printed at the end of a project brainstorming process
  • improved mental clarity when brainstorming
  • streamlined alignment
  • massively increased efficiency of remote and in person meetings
  • allowed for a permanent bank of all brainstorming materials from the past (your progress never needs to be erased again!)
the implementation of Miro into my organization was more streamlined than the adoption of any other app! It's very inclusive and accessible to use effectively as a novice
Similarly to its ease of implementation, Miro was easy to integrate into the culture of my team, especially since we were familiar with it before the pandemic hit, and then remote work became a challenge that my team needed to adapt to, Miro was a natural and comfortable space to take over. At that time, my team also relied on Miro for confidential feedback to our management during Zoom calls about how we were doing and how well we felt supported in our new remote setting, so the ability to add an anonymous sticky note instead of verbally speaking was a huge value add for us, and influencer in the tool's integration into our culture

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?


Would you buy Miro again?


I recommend Miro to anyone feeling like their personal or team brainstorming processes are too scattered and disorganized. It's the perfect tool to personally/collectively brain dump ideas and then make meaning and organized next-steps out of them In its current design Miro feels less appropriate/accessible to show to chief executives / C suite officials, even though I think the premise of involving key stakeholders into the brainstorming process is great, and that's a need that Miro could better target in the future
