Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro for giving interactive workshops. In our social enterprise organization, we design Miro boards to develop business models, brainstorm new ideas or discuss certain project-specific topics. Depending on the application, these workshops and work sessions can last between two hours and even multiple days. We use Miro especially when the input of all participants is required because Miro makes it easy for new users to participate in any given topic.
  • Interactiveness
  • Sticky notes
  • Simple UI
  • Layout of specific areas
  • Performance
  • Enhanced design options
  • Structured workshop results
  • Efficient workflow
  • Improved documentation
When I first used Miro, the performance was not great when multiple participants collaborated at the same time. Since then, the overall performance has improved as far as I can tell, and working together on a shared board has become more efficient as a result. Although the concept of Miro is well suited for many kinds of problems, some processes feel clunky to use.
It is easy to share boards with as many addresses as required. By simply setting the access options by demand and sharing URLs, anyone can join the board and collaborate, no matter the organizational background. Nevertheless, in some cases shared URLs did not lead towards the required board but to another Miro page instead.
Especially during the start of the pandemic, we were able to continue working on our social enterprise projects by using Miro to collaborate. Due to being easy to access, entire teams of project members could continue working out problems or dive into new topics with certain workshops. Although we are now able to meet in person again, we still use Miro as an option to collaborate in person.

  • MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)
I have only used MURAL as an alternative to Miro. It was selected as the collaboration tool of choice during a workshop organized by external partners. I found those tools quite similar when the main focus is to take notes. When more complex solutions were required, Miro provided more tools to organize knowledge and structure ideas.
Miro is useful for scenarios, where multiple participants are required to take part in a discussion. With Miro, all participants can add notes simultaneously, so that it feels like working together on a whiteboard. It's great for brainstorming new ideas in a guided or boundary-free setting, as well as for case-specific workshops that require solutions at the end.
