Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro in multiple ways!

For workshops, especially in a virtual or
remote environment, works great. The possibility to organize it in advance
using Frames to group content, and to hide content to participants until a
specific moment is a very useful feature. The sticky
notes, the timer (including music!), the voting... all make it so close to a
F2F experience! One of my favorite features is the "Bring all to me"
button, it ensures you get everyone focused on a specific task, especially when
people are curiously exploring around the board! I also use it to create all sorts of diagrams and
to map processes. As a "visual" person that works remotely 95% of the
time, it helps clarify ideas and get alignment on
concepts and processes with others via the screen.
  • Makes collaboration in a remote/virtual environment easy and fun
  • Helps getting alignment and to clarify understanding
  • Promotes creativity, is great for ideation and concept sharing
  • Still struggle to get the right Sticky Note size versus Frame size
  • It has so many connections to other apps that I find it a bit overwhelming to find out what can I use each for..
  • Improved team productivity
  • Reduce potential risk liability by bringing alignment and common understanding
I guess this depends very much on how each Company rolls out the implementation of the tool. In our case, I've had a lot of internal support regarding access rights and taking me through the main features. The guidance provided by the tool itself makes it easy to quickly learn to navigate it.
As mentioned before, I see Miro is integrated with many different applications and software. In my case, I find it a bit overwhelming, and a missed opportunity for myself to get the most out of it, as I am sure there are a lot of features that are helpful but that I ignore.
I am home-based and work remotely 95% of the time. My project team members are typically located across multiple geographies worldwide, having a platform and a tool that is so user-friendly has definitely helped us to increase collaboration, get traction faster and all with fun. Many colleagues that have worked with me in the past year, once they know the tool, just love it and I am frequently asked to do "one of those greats Miro boards"!

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

I discovered that in Miro I have combined functionalities from other tools, like the possibility to create mind maps like with MindManager, a great blank canvas or whiteboard for online collaboration with integrated calls like in Teams, and the possibility to map processes like Visio. As an advantage, everything is combined in the same tool and can be used all in the same call/board. And being so user-friendly is easy to get colleagues to collaborate and modify on the go without having to follow many tutorials.
As mentioned before, Miro is my preferred app for running virtual workshops, as it is very user-friendly and with a short introduction to the basic features and navigation, people who have never used it before can quickly get their hands on it. I also use it in my daily calls with colleagues as a whiteboard to share and clarify concepts, or brainstorm together. And also for my own solo-thinking process, to draw and organize ideas. For project planning, I find the Gantt-chart template useful as a canvas for a workshop or a project kick-off meeting, but not so useful to track daily activities, whereas other dedicated software's still plays better.
