Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Our student team is working on a UX design project and we rely heavily on Miro for collaboration. The main use cases for us are synthesizing qualitative data, planning the next steps on the project, and brainstorming the requirements of our solution. Being able to simultaneously put our thoughts down and then step away and see a visual representation of all our ideas is invaluable.

Pros

  • Allowing for real-time collaboration
  • Having different options for visually representing information
  • Allowing you to prioritize projects by starring them, which makes them easy to find

Cons

  • Sometimes loading times can be very slow for boards with a lot of sticky notes on them. This also makes navigation lag as well.
  • I wish there were more colors to choose from when it comes to the sticky notes.
  • It'd be cool if there was a way to have videos or Gifs play in the Miro board.
  • Miro has improved our team productivity significantly
  • Miro has made our qualitative analysis sessions go by a lot faster
  • Miro has helped us align on our goals and be able to see where everyone's ideas converge or diverge
Miro is very user-friendly and easy to learn as a first-time user. You can find easy tutorials online if need be, but one of their best features for beginners is their templates. They're ideal because it takes the guessing out of what the most appropriate# way to format your board is depending on your use case. They've thought of it already!
Miro is easy to integrate into your daily workflow because it's user-friendly and once you get used to it for brainstorming sessions, you'll never use anything else.
Miro is THE way our team is able to collaborate remotely. We're able to do work on it asynchronously which has significantly reduced the number of times our team has to meet. We can also send each other quick messages to review something and leave our notes directly on the board. It's invaluable for a remote team.

Miro is the ideal tool for collaborating with others, especially in situations where you have to account for multiple ideas. Brainstorming sessions using different colored sticky notes is one of our favorite things to do; it's incredibly easy to have folks right down different ideas on different notes, and then discuss them as a team, and collectively rearrange the notes to find convergences and divergences in ideas. Having a visual representation of your ideas is the biggest plus of using this tool.
