Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Because of the pandemic, for about 2 years we are working remotely, as per convenience. Everyone in the team requires a lot of connections with other people as a meeting, conference or just one-on-one connect for various reasons like drafting solutions, designing architecture, planning some procedure and lot more things which need to be shared to make people understand. So to achieve this we needed a canvas that can be virtually hosted like a whiteboard and can be utilized in team meetings. So making communication clear and transparent we are using Miro and it's working fantastic.
- Multiple users can simultaneous work on same canvas instance.
- It's like a whiteboard with a lot of utilities and stationaries.
- A very huge canvas so no issues related to space and all team notes can be added to the same, no matter how big it is.
- Vast variety of templates.
- Very easy to use.
- On the fly/demand availability.
- Very lightweight.
- Graphics, sometimes we need to add external graphics so would be appreciated if that can be done easily without losing any resolutions or clarity.
- Compression of documents.
- Locks can be improvised for shared collaborations.
- It made conversation more clear and transparent.
- Documenting the discussion in graphics and notes enhanced the efficiency.
- It improved team collaboration in multiple ways.
- Meeting and conferences become more understandable and can be visualized easily.
Micro is much more like a whiteboard with utilities, it could be made flexible for animations as well. There should be easy to get added with different workflows directly, like with Jira, Confluence, etc. So in that case we would be able to fetch more potential out. And different formats can be saved.
It's not easy nor difficult to get integrated with other things. But there seems to be a problem with some other third-party workflows where Miro could not be integrated easily, maybe due to some security constraint.
It made all discussions quite efficient since multiple people can interact simultaneously on a single instance of whiteboard, hence collaborations seem to be under a single roof. All meeting notes need not be maintained along parallel with a meeting, everything discussed over the whiteboard is saved and hence time is saved.

Presenting the Miro dashboard is just like presenting a screen, with no extra overhead. But in other products, it seems to be heavyweight as most of the time all people are not in sync. The multiple-user experience is not as smooth as in the case of Miro. Using Miro is quite easy as compared to others. And the utility support is quite good.
Scenarios where Miro is well suited are: 1. Best suitable for teams who are collaborating from different locations. 2. For conferences. 3. For Solution sketching and saving documents. 4. Huge canvas to record explanations. 5. Simultaneous contribution by multiple people from remote. 6. When a lot of standard diagrams and depictions need to be cast, and same is present in utilities and libraries. Scenarios where Miro is less suited: 1. Good and continuous internet connectivity is required, so if that's an issue then in that case Miro won't be a good option. 2. When a lot of resources need to be taken from outside then pasting graphics and pictures is cumbersome.
