Overall Satisfaction with Miro

When we need to collaborate to bring new and innovative ideas, we've had thinking sessions that involve Miro. This usually has involved solving an internal problem, for example how to optimize certain processes, and helps us see feedback right away, share ideas and even spark new ideas in one another
  • Live sharing of ideas
  • Connect one idea to another, using shapes and arrows
  • Have different thinking boards separately, but related to one topic, all in one place
  • Zoom in/out tools help us have standard size notes that fit all we want and still see it
  • Collaborating even when we are not all connected to the board, I can come back and add points later after a meeting
  • In some cases, giving access to people is not that easy. They can view but not edit
  • Might be good to have tips on innovative brainstorming
  • Maybe this exists, but I haven't noticed. Know who wrote what might be good for follow up questions (could be an optional feature, check if you want to see/uncheck if you want comments to be anonymous)
  • Reduced manual compilation of ideas from several stakeholders, optimizing time in meetings. We once tried to do this in a shared PowerPoint and the functionality was very limited compared to Miro
  • When users are active and engaged, it really boosts meeting productivity and team engagement. People have a sense of their voice has been heard, even in crowded meetings
The tool is good by itself, but it is great when partnered with a good promoter or superuser within the team. I have had meetings where we are just learning to use the tool and we are just thinking of ways to use it, and I have had meetings with super users, experts on design thinking and innovation, with clear ideas on how to do innovative brainstorming and Miro just takes a new meaning.
The tool by itself is very intuitive and you can get around pretty easily, it can be naturally integrated into your meetings. Partnered with blog posts or training materials with use cases might be a good idea to spark users' thinking on how to best take advantage of the tool.
My team is located in several parts of the world, so remote work is not totally new, but we have seen the evolution of technology tools to help teams be more productive. I've used several tools and Miro is one of the best tools to simulate what could be done in a meeting room with post-its and people laying down their ideas in workshops or brainstorming sessions.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

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?


Miro is simpler to navigate through the board, and zoom in/out capabilities are better. I think Miro has the exact amount of features, it is good in providing value and tools to collaborate while still keeping it simple
If you have a general problem and want to get broad ideas on how to solve it, this is great. Brainstorming is one of the key scenarios I see for Miro. Now, for more specific action plans or follow-ups, where you need details, that's probably not the best use case of the tool.
