Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I didn't use Miro in a business. I took participated in UI/UX Bootcamp hosted by Netflix. I used Miro in the course to conduct make mind maps and affinity maps - defining research - and I continue to use it for my school projects.
  • Easy to make a lot of sticky notes
  • Easy to group and ungroup items
  • I feel like you can do more on Figma - like create prototypes - but Miro looks better and it's easier to use. If you can create clickable prototypes on Miro, I didn't know. I only use Figma for stuff I didn't know Miro could do. But if I could I would use Miro more, because it's easier to use.
  • Okay, one of my favorite features is "bulk mode", but it's also one of the most annoying features because you can't see your work on the page anymore. I think the white screen that pops up should be transparent. I wanted to make sticky notes based on some sticky notes I already wrote down - and I couldn't see them - so it took way longer because I had to keep exiting bulk mode to view what I wrote then go back into a bulk mode to type more stickies.
  • Okay, so make the app more "new user-friendly" and not just user friendly. If someone didn't know what each button meant (and it's not completely obvious) they'll probably get discouraged. Also, make it more apparent what features exist if possible ... I just found out you guys allow users to make wireframes and I had no idea. So maybe that's my fault for not checking, but ... maybe make it more obvious.
  • The metaverse exists and incorporating 3D design software into Miro might be beneficial in the long run. Personally, right now - I plan on using Miro to document research, but I'm really interested in learning how to use Tvori right now, because I know the metaverse is the present and future.
  • Also, you could include more templates for marketing personnel. I think design and marketing are intertwined and will likely become more intertwined as we move into more user-centric products and services. I think SWOT analysis templates and implementation cycle templates would be dope.
  • Miro was the first application I used when I started learning about UI/UX so it only helped me.
I wish I had more time to learn about the different features in Miro.
It's easy to learn the basic features, I just think it'll take a little bit work to figure out all the other features.
Miro is essential in a virtual environment. I enjoy working virtually with Miro and collaborating with my teammates. It helped my team and classmates gather, organize, and define our research. We did all of that in Miro - now when it was time to build something - we went to Figma, but I don't think any of us knew Miro had prototyping capabilities. It would've been easier for us to do everything on Figma because it would've been a single platform. However, we found Miro easier to use, so whenever we could use Miro we did. We would've used Miro more if we knew about all these other features

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?


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?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?


Figma has prototyping capabilities, but it's more complex. It seems like Figma has more features, but I don't know.

InVision allows use to create clickable handsketches. I guess you could do the same thing in Miro, but I don't know.

Tvori allows you to build 3D applications for the metaverse. I think most students should start learning how to use Tvori and ultimately it might become the number one software. In terms of 2D application software, Miro and Figma are my favoritte, but I'm looking for a platform that does both.
Miro is great for creating mind maps and documenting user research. It's also great for collaborating on documents that require collective ideation and design. Previously, I didn't think you could prototype on Miro, but I found this button with extra resources and realized you could - but - I don't know of anything that Miro isn't good for. Personally, I think it's easier to find presentation-ready templates in graphics in CANVA. Like if I'm making a presentation or preparing a pitch, then I'll use Canva for all of my templates and graphics because it's more appealing. Miro is more working on the solution. Canva is more so presenting the solution. But hey I love Miro and I'm rooting for you guys to beat all these other companies.
