Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use it for eliciting and organizing thoughts, actions, and takeaways in a participatory manner. In one business case, we use it for lessons learned and process improvement, by brainstorming issues and discussing and working them into actionable items that we can assign and track to completion. Everyone is encouraged to participate, and breakout sessions are often needed but all updates are visible to everyone.
  • Brainstorming or something that requires input from everyone
  • Managing a team's updates where input from team members are needed
  • As the board gets filled with all sorts of information, it may be difficult to frame them or set aside/summarize.
  • As the board gets filled, navigating between frames may be more difficult. When new users get access to the board, seeing the workings can be messy, and still requires a person to summarize all the happenings.
  • Improved design productivity
  • Improve participatory and consultative experiences
Ctrl + Z is your best friend. The tool can sometimes lag and feel clunky and slow, especially when others are editing at the same time. I am not a power user of Miro, so I have accidentally clicked/dragged on things and screwed up the board. However, the tool does capture real-time events from other users, so it's still pretty useful.
Our Miro is integrated with Slack and our active directory. However, I haven't used that integration yet. Also, I am not a developer or super-user of Miro, so I can't quite comment on integration setup and use.
Miro has increased our capability to collaborate across remote users. I haven't had experience with in-person sessions, but I imagine it would work just as efficiently (e.g. one person can make edits for everyone to see while another person is speaking or presenting ideas).

Would you buy Miro again?


More suited for brainstorming or participatory design/working sessions. Also good for breakaway sessions where people come back to present the outcome of the discussion. Some of my colleagues have used it as a presentation tool, but I found it challenging to work on as it is hard to figure out where everything is on the board.
