Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro when process mapping the current state and future states of processes that I am reviewing. I have used it primarily in LEAN training and facilitation, but I also use it for presentation and my own use. There are very few things that Miro cannot accomplish, it really blends the best of a lot of different programs in an easy-to-use format and infinite space to work in.
  • Mapping processes
  • Presenting
  • Brainstorming
  • Hassle-free collaborative work
  • Transitions in presentation mode, let's just replace PowerPoint completely, Miro is better!
  • A little more instruction on how to tie elements to frames, sometimes I have trouble moving things within frames/keeping things together.
  • A collapsible and customizable hotkey menu, this way you could reference your most-used shortcuts (stickies, shapes, frames) via hotkey instead of side-bar and keep in the flow.
  • provided a space to map processes to improve them and reduce time to completion
  • saves paper
  • I don't have to look around for a pen to make notes to myself. You don't live at my house so you don't know how helpful this is.
not really, I liked the instructional videos, I think there could be more and more time could be taken. What is there now is a great introduction to functionality, but for Miro nerds that want to be experts more time could be spent on each feature.
It's really easy to use. I have seen others have a bit of a learning curve, but once you get going and moving in it it's extremely intuitive.
It makes collaboration possible in an online world where it otherwise wouldn't be. It really is a major solution to collaboration in a WFH world. It is also the best functioning cloud-based online collaborative platform I have used, and I have used quite a few. There is very little lag, and running it in conjunction with a video call is no problem.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?

Yes

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?

Yes

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

brainstorming and process mapping are primarily what I have used it for, but also to-do lists, and getting things out of my brain and onto a space. I don't have enough space in my house for all these stickies, so Miro is great. I also have used it for presentation, it's A LOT more user-friendly than PowerPoint, and a lot more customizable. It wouldn't be as good for data crunching and work that is done primarily in excel, or writing your thesis, but outside of specific functionality a word processor or spreadsheet program could do it really fills a lot of gaps.
