Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Our entire bureau works from home now due to the pandemic lockdown policy. Miro helps us brainstorm and coordinate on ideas when before we'd be in a large conference room to discuss issues.
  • Group brainstorm sessions
  • Group project management
  • Transfer materials to/from presentation layouts
  • Zooming/scaling and busy interface issues (most workers have laptops with small screens)
  • Videoconferencing function is confusing and not great, so we stick with Zoom/Teams
The keyboard shortcuts should correspond better with Windows/Mac shortcuts (i.e. copy-paste needs to be Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V). For Miro, I remember Tab will copy post-its, but that's not a good shortcut key.
For work from home, Miro is basically a separate app - it will never displace Teams/Zoom for convenience. No integration.
It's great for remote group work. Since the entire bureau lost our office and moved to complete remote, Miro has been useful in getting everybody involved in brainstorming or coordination sessions (without everyone needing to talk). However, some of the administrative/account functions could be more convenient - colleagues not adept with technology are reluctant to use Miro more.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

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?


I would recommend MIro to organizations that have a sizable number of employees working from home - but not too many workers, because Miro doesn't scale that well. Works best with smaller teams; more is chaos.

Using Miro

The interface toolbars and buttons need to be a little more intuitive. People are used to Microsoft Office products, so unfortunately you may need to follow their lead. For example, Esri changed their GIS products to use Office ribbon menus, and that's made ArcGIS Pro more intuitive.
