Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro solves the problem of making meetings interactive within our teams. Quite often, our engineers will need to collaborate to find a solution during our scheduled meetings. Prior to the pandemic, this would have been done on a whiteboard at the office. Now, our employees are working in many different places. Until finding Miro, we had no clean way of brainstorming ideas, holding polls or generating feedback. We use Miro for retrospectives, planning meetings and general presentations where interactivity is desired.
  • Facilitating Agile ceremonies.
  • Encouraging creativity.
  • Helping the team feel valued and engaged.
  • Miro can run poorly on lower-end machines, with choppy animation/scrolling and taking a long time to load.
  • Miro can be confusing initially; it is easy to get lost on a large board or accidentally move the background.
  • Boards can become chaotic and messy.
  • Miro is difficult to use on a small screen.
  • Has helped our team to keep track of objectives more effectively and visibly.
  • Has reduced completion time for projects.
  • Has reduced the complexity of large projects.
  • Has helped our people collaborate with other organisations.
Miro is easy to integrate as most of its features are intuitive and enjoyable to use. It is also simple to get everyone started, by simply sharing a link to the board within the current Teams meeting.
Miro has greatly improved our team's ability to collaborate in real-time while working remotely. It offers a new degree of freedom that other tools such as Jira, Teams and Confluence did not address.

Miro offers a very unique feature set and user experience when compared to simply sharing a Google or SharePoint Doc. It doesn't "lock you in" to simply writing lines on a page, but allows for 3-dimensional editing -- much more akin to butchers' paper in real life. From this, new perspectives and more creativity can be facilitated.
Miro is well-suited to Agile ceremonies such as retrospectives and sprint planning sessions. Any meeting where audience participation is required would be a good use case, for an ideal team size of 4-10 people.

Miro isn't well suited to very very large meetings (e.g. 50+ people). It would easily become very chaotic and confusing to see all the cursors on the screen. It would potentially become unstable if using a lower-end system.
