Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I used Miro mostly for planning and mind-boards with other team members. Miro stands out when it comes to user-friendliness, it's quite intuitive and reliable (it doesn't crash). Exporting to PDF or others is also easy with the press of a button. The problem Miro resolves is working together online without a whiteboard, or a big piece of paper in the middle of the conference room. Additionally, because it's digital, it has other benefits.
  • Working together online
  • User-friendlyness / intuitive usage
  • Brainstorming idea's
  • Planning with others
  • Exporting and sharing content
  • Professional look & feel
  • In some cases, exporting to PDF is not identical to what you see on the screen. For instance, white space is left out. These design choices are automatic and can cause confusion when printing it without checking the exported file
  • Sometimes, automatic "jumps" to align a note with another are incorrect, which can be annoying. There is no way to turn it off for a few seconds.
  • It doesn't work well on mobile, or on older devices
  • Improved productivity
  • Better communication
Miro works very well in many aspects - it is a well-rounded piece of software with many features and it's still in development. It's highly useful in many different scenarios, and implementation is close to no work due to the software being completely online-hosted in the cloud. Just make an account and you're ready. Little instruction is needed but could be useful with its more advanced features.
I don't know how it could be easier than creating an account and using it. Of course, everyone has to be invited and the process of doing this takes a few seconds, but they have made it as easy as it gets when it comes to doing this. It is sometimes unclear what is a premium and non-premium feature, but you'll learn this when using it.
It makes it easier to work together and to collaborate on ideas and meetings. It impacted our organization by allowing us to see what other people are thinking and working on, making discussions much more efficient than if we would talk about each step and write them down by hand.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

  • Google Hangouts (Classic), Google Workspace for Education (formerly G Suite for Education) and Microsoft Teams
The other products we tried are focused more on text and talk, whereas Miro focuses more on the visuals and working together in real-time, seeing what the other people are doing when they are doing it and talking about it. Google Suite also allows this but does not come close to the experience that Miro has to offer
It is well suited for when you work at home with your colleagues and have to make a planning, brainstorm or another discussion. As such, there are many scenarios, especially at the beginning of a project where it can come in handy. After this first scenario, the use-case is less obvious and we switch to Office or other programs for the 'real' work.
