Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use it for virtual brainstorming sessions involving people across many sites within my company. It's the best brainstorming tool I've come across when you can't meet as a group in a physical location. I do occasionally use it for online meetings but usually, Microsoft Teams are sufficient for my needs for online meetings.
  • Seeing where people are in an online space, what they are looking at, what they are thinking by seeing their cursor motions
  • Dropping drawings or pictures in a shared space to communicate a concept
  • Collaborating on drawings
  • Grouping whiteboards/spaces together
  • Onboarding newbies. It's a barrier to usage to know that I need to get people trained and oriented to use the tool effectively. Sometimes it's not worth the hassle.
  • I have not used it enough to notice a quantifiable impact, but qualitatively it has allowed us to better brainstorm and capture ideas with virtual teams.
It's hard to get people to use a new tool. And the larger the group, the more likely someone will have an issue or not engage. For me to use it effectively I watched quite a number of the tutorials, and it's not that you have to do that, but even a basic user needs onboarding. I do really like the single sign-on so that I can use my work log-in. And I like the native app better than the browser implementation.
The software itself is easy to integrate, but from a human standpoint, it's hard to get people to use new tools, especially if they don't use them all the time and for all things.
We have been able to brainstorm with remote workers and feel part of the same team and process without needing to be physically in the same location. And we have been able to go back to saved brainstorming Miro boards over and over to continue to build on ideas.

I would highly recommend it as a brainstorming tool for virtual teams when a physical location is not possible to hold a brainstorming session. It's the best tool that exists for brainstorming, bar none. I would not necessarily recommend it for day-to-day meetings unless people are using the tool all the time and already know how to use it. My organization uses Microsoft Teams for day-to-day meetings and it would be too difficult to get people to use this tool on a regular basis for my meetings.
