Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I'm in higher education as a student. I study in a team (which is a company at the same time) of 15 students. I use Miro on a casual, almost daily basis, in order to use creative techniques, collect information, work visually together at the same place. I also tried some projectmanagement and other creative, new usescases for Miro.
  • Work visually in groups
  • Making large amounts of information easily accessible
  • creativity
  • collaboration
  • project management inside miro
  • options for nicer designs, if it's necessary to design more serious work and PDFs
  • super large Miro boards with multiple PDFs, pictures, etc. are laggy/unusable
  • higher work motivation
  • better work morale
  • higher creativity
  • more collaborative work sessions
I'm a fan! Super happy with the implementation!
Only super large miro boards not any more usable. Which limits the possibility of using one board over a longer time.
As a digital native I had no problems and colleagues who liked Miro implemented it also quickly! But those who where not so motivated, had some struggle. But that's probably not Miros fault
I don't how the pandemic would have gone without Miro. It makes remote collaboration possible! There a few other opportunities I know and none as good to make a team come together, work together and have fun together. Miro is a great fascillitator for remote work.
BUT I also used Miro physically already. A TV was set to show the entire board all times, while each individual worked on their laptops on the board

Regarding new projects:
It's a great way to get started. Get some post-its, some rectangles and boxes and let's create! Form ideas, redefine them (all visually), make mindmaps, brainwriting, implement photos, PDFs. It's just such an amazing collaborative work-tool!

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?


Did implementation of Miro go as expected?


Would you buy Miro again?


- MURAL, which is much worse in UX, design and overall not so clean, neat and perfect
- physical whiteboards, which have serious limitations! (no pictures easily added, limited colours, space and forms)
Google Sheets, MURAL (formerly, Zoom, Slack
Well suited:
- creative session
- gathering work, PDFs, pictures and other material and making it easy accessible and comprehensive
- making the results of individual work visible for the team (which could be developed to an very, very interesting and interactive form of project management (write me an email for an example))
- workshops
- creating visual PDFs (canva competitor)

not well suited:
- serious project management (the cards are not enough, also not really easily possible to create a guntchart, etc.)
- projects (PDF, presantations, etc.) which need serious looking design elements
