Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro to organize our Agile activities, mostly for our retrospectives. It gives us all on the team away to visually collaborate with one another and share ideas, which is great in this period where we can't meet in person. The scope is for our small agile team (12 people) and our Agile Coach.
  • Allows creativity to run wild, little structure so we can create whatever we'd like.
  • Allows multi-use and sharing post-its.
  • Takes up too much processing power, crashes my other apps.
  • I usually am unable to connect through the app.
  • It's quite slow, I usually deal with a significant lag.
  • For what the license costs per person, I don't think it's offered us any significant boost in productivity.
  • It's nice to have a place to collaborate and use sticky notes as a team, but it feels more of a 'nice to have than a truly positive impact
We weren't given much instruction on how to use it initially, and it felt forced upon us without any alternative options. We were told, more than asked, to use it for everything from planning to retrospectives, and it never really made sense for our planning purposes. All in all, it left a negative impression from the start.
It's quite confusing to use at the start, and there are so many different 'bells and whistles that it's quite difficult to understand how to navigate it. Eventually, you get used to it, but we only use a small fraction of its total capacity and it has the feeling of being way too complicated and powerful for what we use it for.
Since we've been forced to work remotely, it's been a great temporary solution. It's allowed us to collaborate well in our retrospectives every other week. It has not been adopted into planning new projects, as most of our team finds it too slow and cumbersome for little added benefit business-wise.

I think Miro is well-suited for fully remote teams to collaborate on ideas and reflect retrospectively on the past weeks. It provides a "whiteboard" in a virtual world. That being said, for me it's no substitute for a real whiteboard, and I find it to be too cumbersome and slow for regular use cases such as sprint planning.
