Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro for everything from mapping user experience and proto-personas to creating branching scenarios for training. The flexibility and usability of Miro make it stand out compared to other software and sites we've used.
  • brainstorming
  • allowing for planning
  • visual explanations
  • helping teams get on the same page
  • creating specified comments
  • It can be difficult to navigate between the various pieces of Miro Boards (without following a presenter)
  • It can be difficult to read text when zoomed out to view two pieces of a board
  • The zoomed-out level can be intimidating; though it can be nice to have a big-picture view of the things we'll be covering in a meeting, it's often better to be automatically taken to one piece of the board.
  • great tool for simultaneous collaboration
  • improved sense of group understanding of abstract topics or ideas
  • more effective project planning
  • has helped us plan and get on the same page about goals, deliverables, and next steps for projects
No, I don't think so!
Again, the learning curve is a tad steep, but I think it's worth taking the time!
Miro is certainly the best choice for real-time collaboration; we don't experience the lags in updating that we get on other platforms, which means every team member can contribute at the same time (instead of having one person share a screen and record comments and ideas.) Miro is a pivotal tool for allowing responses, comments, and general brainstorms while our teams are remote and working virtually.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

- Really useful for conceptual discussions and brainstorming - Good tool for mind mapping, creating branching scenarios, and showing how ideas connect - Not the best for getting lots of comments on a small topic (can be difficult to fit lots of post-its in a smaller space) - There's a tiny bit of a learning curve; it's fabulous that Miro offers so much functionality, but it's difficult to pick up without taking some time to learn.
