Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I utilize Miro to collaborate with colleagues in the design creation phase of my work. I also use Miro to create presentations to review with internal and external partners. Miro allows us to directly interact with partners in different geographical places and at different times. It creates a single source to reference and captures inputs in real-time.
  • Manages a wide user base on different platforms
  • Imports and exports individual files well
  • Has a good selection of layout tools
  • Provides good notifications and tools to locate updates to notes and comments
  • Managing frames is a bit awkward. Selecting, locking, reorganizing frames can be problematic. When frames are locked you can still select them while attempting to select objects on the frame. You can renumber frames so they change the order of the flow in presentation mode but it would be nice to change the order and position of the frames on the pasteboard easier. Is it possible to break a Miro board into individual presentations or separate Miro boards easier?
  • The color picker tool and custom colors do not work well. You can not add an identifying name to the custom colors. the custom colors seem to be user-specific instead of document-specific. Once you reach a certain number of custom colors the interface does not allow new ones to be added and old ones to be deleted.
  • Better type tools would be helpful (grids, fonts, character and paragraph controls)
  • A few more design tools for creating shapes and layouts, guides and grids
  • It has improved the ability to work remotely with a diverse number of team members.
  • It has streamlined the process of sharing information internally and managing updates.
  • Sorting and organizing the multitude of Miro boards is becoming an issue.
The browser-based interface is more reliable than the Miro App. The data archiving could be improved. The intro Miro tutorial could be more robust.
The implementation has been pretty good. I have not heard many complaints from the group of users I interact with. These users have a diverse background and interact with Miro in a range of ways, from simply logging into Miro to review pages and leave notes to the contributing content and revising layouts. Some users with older equipment have had some issues with larger Miro boards slowing or happening to their systems.
We have been able to divide the work between team members in ways that were previously difficult due to geographies and times. This flexibility has brought about new ideas and refreshed and expanded the type of work available to individual team members.

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?

Miro is well suited for creating collaborative documents to share and refine ideas. Miro is less suited for designing refined presentations or templates as well as page layout applications.
