Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Miro was fantastic for when open space was needed to create, play with ideas, and plan. I facilitated coaching sessions on Miro as well as did personal planning and scoping. For coaching sessions, I needed something visual and interactive that clients could take away and use in the future. For personal business planning, I needed unlimited space to sort out ideas. I have ADHD and the setup really worked well for my brain, other programs are too linear and restrictive.
- Capacity to create
- Outline to easily navigate
- “Bring to me” option when you want to get everyone on the same page
- It still had quite a bit of a learning curve for non-tech savvy individuals; however, my tech Savvy clients did fine
- Mindmapping feature is not as robust as other programs (import feature, convert to outline)
- Improved creativity and amount of ideas generated
- Improved focus because I wasn’t having to switch back and forth between notebooks or programs
- Increased confidence as I found a program that works with my adhd brain
Great with tech-savvy clients; still quite a bit of a learning curve with non-tech-savvy clients. They have some great templates to assist you but it still takes time to onboard those who aren’t comfortable. For those clients, I ended up screen sharing and scribing to create their stuff rather than having us both. Definitely doable but probably not as useful for one-off sessions
Actually, I didn’t use any of the integrations, but I appreciated that there were so many options with things like Asana and Trello and Jira! I’m sure there are more but I did not explore the integrations as much just because I didn’t have much use for them at the time. I can see it being very useful for a big team or software company.
I did not use it with a team per se, but I did have a group of clients that (due to COVID) I would not have been otherwise able to work with. We were doing organizational restructure work and Miro provided an incredible platform for creation and collaboration.

Would you buy Miro again?
Miro is perfectly suited for brainstorming and workshops and ideation. When you are needing to co-create a worksheet or web wireframe with others, it works well. I also found it easier to coach with the visuals I was able to create on miro rather than just talk sessions I have had less success using it for task management. Even though there are features you COULD use, it would be very easy for your tasks to get lost because of the whole unlimited space thing; miro would probably be best in tandem with another task management program such as Trello or Asana (and miro has a card integration feature with both of those)
